DWELL Realtors at Painting with a Twist

Let's talk about one of my favorite topics: food. You go into this amazing restaurant. Every single detail, down to the folded linen on the handcrafted table, that sits beside a gorgeous wine glass invites you in. The lights are dimmed just enough.  You are greeted by a server, who is as passionate about food as you are, and just as excited to take a walk with you through the menu. You just know, they are going to paint you a splendid picture (pun intended). But first, let's order a full bodied glass of cabernet. Swish. Sniff. Taste and continue. Now let's take a stroll. Every menu item leaves you salivating. Each item's description is like its own personal fairy tale - I'm trying to make this quick, I promise. While trying to pick the perfect entree…

Take a trip down memory lane in Sarasota, Florida. Take a look at the images and stories around Main Street in downtown. 

Sarasota Main Street 1887

Main Street dead-ended at the Sarasota House, the first hotel in the Sarasota Bay region. Built a year earlier, it remained a hotel until razed in 1924 for a bank building. The two indentical buildings at the end of the street was nearest present day Five Points. Adding a modern touch to downtown Sarasota was a newly built wooden sidewalk.

Downtown Sarasota Florida

Drawn both by beaches and expansive estates located in exclusive golf communities, some of the wealthiest homebuyers in the world have made Sarasota and Manatee counties a destination real estate market.

In the 2014 edition of its "Luxury Defined" white paper, Christie's International Real Estate lists Sarasota among 10 small communities in the world that draw a high percentage of "high net worth individuals" to buy high-priced homes.

With homes priced at $1 million or higher making up 8 percent of the residential real estate market in 2013, Sarasota joined exclusive "jewel box" enclaves with populations under 150,000 including Jackson Hole, Wyo., Monaco and Martha's Vineyard as an…

2) Where did Longboat come from?

In 1539 Hernando DeSoto is thought to have visited here with his scout, Juan Anasco, manning the “longboat” as it went through the north pass.
