You will notice that many of the homes on Bird Key are newer. The island was developed in the 1950's and 1960's yet the area is in such high demand that many of the older Bird Key homes have been torn down to make way for newer ones.

The canal front and bay front homes on the island can accommodate both large yachts and sailboats, and the bay front estates offer unparalleled views of the water and downtown Sarasota.

Homes on the Bay
I have heard it time and time again. I will be driving over the Ringling bridge west towards Lido Key with a potential buyer in the car and hear, "Wow, there are some pretty homes over there." They are of course referring to Bird Key homes. They are usually commenting about the grandiose waterfront homes on the east side of Bird Key along Seagull Lane, East Royal Flamingo, Robin Drive and Meadow Lark Drive. The views from these Bird Key homes overlook Marina Jack's, downtown Sarasota skyline and Sarasota Bay. They are some of the nice waters views that you can find in Sarasota, Florida. The bay front Bird Key homes one the west side include those along Mourning Dove Drive, South Spoonbill Drive, West Royal Flamingo, Bird Key Drive, South & North Warbler Lane and Seagull Lane. These also have amazing water views. The bayfront homes to the west have stunning sunset views over the Sarasota Bay looking towards Lido Key and St. Armands Key. On the south end of the island the bay homes along South Spoonbill Drive and Mourning Dove Drive have amazing water views overlooking the north end of Siesta Key, south end of Lido Key and Big Pass. I challenge anyone to find a Bird Key home on the bay with a bad view
