St. Armands Circle real estate

Circus magnate John Ringling purchased the property that is today's St. Armands Key in 1917. His vision for this unique planned development included a shopping area laid out in a circle, European-style, in addition to residential homes. Ringling Circus elephants were used to haul in the timbers to build the bridge that would connect the area to the mainland.

The homes around St. Armands Circle are unique in that they have the luxury of being within footsteps of so many fun activities. It is like being a kid again. Feel like talking an early morning walk on the beach? Well, the gorgeous Lido Key beach is not too far away. How about some kayaking in the Sarasota bay? There is a great place to launch close by on south Lido Key. Need some exercise? A…
