More About Siesta Key Real Estate
The moment you cross over the Siesta Key's north bridge, along Siesta Drive, you'll probably be struck by the variety of properties. From grand island villas, to understated residential ranch homes, the Siesta Key real estate market has the perfect home to make your island dreams come true.
Winding between the narrow canals and waterways, you're likely to see waterfront homes in bright Mediterranean styles - with tall arches, arcades, red-tile roofs, and rows of swaying palms. And tucked away in private settings, modest bungalows in stucco and pastel-toned siding.
Almost all of these properties in Siesta Key have some kind of water access, whether it's a lagoon, canal, or the ocean. And if you're looking to simply cool off, or wash away the sand and salt, covered pools are practically standard here.
Moving down towards Siesta Key's narrow middle corridor, you'll find a range of condo and detached villa communities. Homes for sale in this sector of Siesta Key's real estate market promise excellent amenities, like swimming pools, tennis courts, and fitness centers. Expect beautiful light interiors with modern kitchens and open living areas. These units typically sleep a generous number of people, perfect for having friends or family over.
The biggest highlight of Siesta Key's condo market is their location, as many open directly onto the legendary Siesta Key Beach, offering residents daily sunsets over crystal sands and turquoise waters.
Travelling even further down the island, as the land narrows, properties become even more exclusive. Lush estates with spacious lawns, and forest-like vegetation occupy this stretch. Many of the luxury homes here have been completed in the modern style that Florida is known for.
These luxury homes also come in Southern Colonial and Mediterranean-revival styles, and almost all have their own private deep-water docks. Interiors vary between sleek, modern, almost Scandinavian style, and the rich, ornate aesthetic typical of the Southern Estate home, including stained wood finishes, crown molding, wainscoting, and so on.
