This small, serene, Sarasota community boasts a diversity of architectural design styles, ranging from the boom time revival period to a post World War II modern theme. The impressive Florida mansions built here in the 50’s and 60’s on this community’s palm-lined roads adds a feeling like you have been sent back in time to the growth years in Sarasota after the Second World War.
Originally designed in 1926, the subdivision is separated from Osprey Avenue by a stucco wall and gate posts with impressive artistic tile work depicting a beautiful Cherokee rose. The developer, J.C. Brown, had a vision for Cherokee Park - creating a neighborhood filled with homes designed in Italian, Spanish or Moorish styles of architecture. Sadly, Brown’s dreamscape never fully developed due to the magnitude of the real estate bust of the late 1920’s. In 1937 only 3 homes were fully built in the community.
