Oyster Bay Real Estate for Sale

Oyster Bay

Oyster Bay Estates is a community that has established deep roots in Sarasota, Florida. Its development went in tandem with the growth of its locality, having been set up during the emergence of the Sunshine State as a snowbirds’ haven in the early 20th century.

Those years, roughly from the 1910s to the roaring 1920s, saw a boom not only in developments of real estate in Sarasota and its suburbs. Besides the recreational facilities built to harness the splendid setting of Sarasota Bay and its surroundings, various amenities for visitors and new settlers were constructed as well. Schools, banks, shops, and hospitals, among other things were likewise built, thus ushering in many of the attractions in the area today.

Excellent schools, for instance, were founded near the homes of Oyster Bay Estates. These institutions have grown to be so popular for the high standards of education that they provide, that many families troop to the area specifically for the academic training of their children. Among these A-rated schools are the Southside Elementary with a history that dates back to the 1920s and the Philippi Shores Elementary School which has been turning out excellent graduates since the 1950s.

Recreational facilities close to Oyster Bay Estates homes for sale also naturally bear the hallmarks of history and excellence. One good example is the nearly century-old Field Club only a few blocks from the community. This club was a former winter home built by the Marshall Fields family and is in the list of the National Register of Historic places. The Fields turned over the property to the Sarasota Yacht Club to enable more people to enjoy its various facilities for recreation, such as those for boating, swimming, and tennis. Today the Field Club is the hub of social activities for Oyster Bay residents.

A mix of contemporary and old shopping venues in the Oyster Bay Estates neighborhood adds further to the charm of this community. One delightful mainstay in the area is the Morton Gourmet Shop which has been the local source of great food items, such as meat, seafood and wine in the area for more than forty years. The commercial center of more recent vintage is the Westfield Southgate Shopping Mall which offers an even wider range of choices from its over 40 stores and boutiques. Among the options here are Saks Fifth Avenue, Banana Republic, and Macy’s which are echoed too in the diverse choices of splendid restaurants in the locality.

Diversity is also a feature of homes for sale in the Oyster Bay Estates area.
