McClellan Park Real Estate for Sale

McClellan Park

McClellan Park is a community with a romantic feel to it, owing perhaps to the feminine touch behind its development. Two sisters, Katherine and Daisietta McClellan, were largely responsible for the establishment of this neighborhood. Moreover, its location near Sarasota Bay can indeed captivate the hearts of most investors and home buyers.

The McClellan sisters developed this fifty-six-acre property around 1916, even pre-dating the 1920s land boom in Florida. Native Americans used to be very active in the area during those times. In fact, the original McClellan Park School was constructed over an ancient Indian mound. From this feature, the creativity of Katherine largely brought about as a photographer inspired her to give Native American names, such as Mietaw and Okobee, to the streets and yacht basin in their property development.

These charming appellations, nonetheless, aren’t the only things that make this community stand out in the Sarasota real estate market. The creative bent of the McClellans has its practical side to it as well. They not only availed of the services of landscape architects for an aesthetic subdivision of the property so that the residents will have expansive views of the picturesque bay. Engineers were also contracted to build the community’s wide roads with curbs and gutters made of shell aggregates. Fine finishing touches, such as the roads’ shade trees and pergolas framing the McClellan Park’s entrance further add charm to this splendid community.

The homes in McClellan Park are composed of exquisitely crafted residences, many of which are circa 1920s and 1950s, attesting to their durability and everlasting appeal. Many of these properties have been fully renovated without losing their charm to prospective homeowners.

The current featured listings of homes for sale in Sarasota contain only a few properties in this community. A rare market offering for a four-bedroom home with three baths and total floor area of about 1,650 square feet can have a listed price near the $500s. The asking price can hit the $1.7 million mark for a residence with a floor space of just under 4,000 square feet, five bedrooms and four bathrooms.

The lush wooded surroundings of the McClellan Park real estate development can truly be an invigorating retreat from the pressures of daily living. Despite its oasis-like character, the community enjoys the various conveniences of city living. Places for shopping and dining are close by, particularly in the Southside Village district where restaurants like Roy’s Sarasota and Kazu’s Shushi & Asian Bistro are among the favorites. The community is likewise just a few minutes away from the north bridge leading to the famous pristine white beaches of Siesta Key that echo the romantic charm of the McClellan Park properties.
