Condos in Frances Carlton 

In 1984, the Frances Carlton joined the National Register of Historic Places. This one-of-a-kind complex possesses a rich history. Built in 1924 near the height of a boom period in Florida real estate that preceded the Great Depression, the building benefited from the skills of two famous architects: Francis James of Tampa and Alex Browning, a Scottish immigrant. They created a structure for Sarasota businessman Carlton Teate that today remains a masterpiece of Mediterranean revival design. The main entrance displays a magnificent white marble staircase.

Each of the 20 units measures 720 square feet and boasts an efficient floor plan with extensive closet and storage space. Residents enjoy a swimming pool, air conditioning, assigned parking and the beauty of solid refinished interior hardwood floors and graceful, arching windows. 

Each condo possesses a cozy sunroom. Some of the units offer impressive city views. The Frances Carlton Condos enjoy ready access to Sarasota's downtown, yet retain many of the qualities of a small, sheltered urban community.

Many residents appreciate the Frances Carlton because it provides ready access to numerous urban attractions. The condominium complex sits next to the Florida Studio Theater. 

Just a few blocks away, you'll find the Sarasota Opera House, several fine restaurants and the Selby Public Library. Island Park and marinas lie close at hand also, although the building remains over a block inland and set back from the waterfront. Residents easily reach many downtown locations on foot from this convenient address.

Anyone drawn to the comfortable lifestyle of the Sunshine State's western coast will appreciate the Frances Carlton's setting. Tall palm trees outside and the pink, shell colors of this beautiful structure's exterior contribute to the ambiance of its immediate environment.

Today large numbers of tourists vacation in Florida, attracted by the excellent, warm climate, plentiful recreational opportunities, sandy beaches and numerous popular attractions. Whether you enjoy casual strolls along the beach, shopping and eating downtown, or visiting sporting events, museums and art galleries, you'll find plenty of activities here to interest you. The Frances Carlton Condos could offer the perfect spot for enjoying a pleasant Sarasota lifestyle
