Why Choose Bird Key?
Real estate on or near the water is always in high demand. In 1960, the original press release for the Bird Key development asked: "Who hasn't dreamed of living on a tropical island? Where the climate is always mild, where the beauty is everywhere, where silence is broken only by the rustling of the palms and the sound of the sea as it washes the shore.” Today, peace and quiet remain the hallmarks of the Bird Key experience. With just 500 homes on the island, 300 of them on the bay or the canal, traffic and crowds are never an issue.
Exclusivity is a hallmark of this community known as the “jewel of Sarasota.” Owning Bird Key real estate is a sign of prestige and personal achievement. This barrier island draws an array of professionals, entrepreneurs and celebrities seeking its luxurious atmosphere and upscale amenities. Bird Key is the starting point for a great day to take your boat out on deep Gulf waters, relax on Lido Beach or set your sights for a day of shopping and dining in downtown Sarasota or St Armands Circle.
