Whitfield Estates was conceived by John Ringling resulting in homes built during every era since 1920. The shady streets and large lots are a rarity today and this neighborhood is conducive to walking, biking and enjoying your neighbors. The location is one of the best - just about half way between downtown Sarasota and downtown Bradenton, minutes to the SRQ airport and a quick drive to I-75. This is an original Ruth Richmond home, and is patiently waiting for the renovations and updating that will breathe fresh life into it. The roof was replaced in 2016 and the A/C in 2018. This home is just a couple of blocks from the bay and the sunsets are endless when viewed in the area at the end of Whitfield Avenue where neighbors often gather in lawn chairs to celebrate end of day. You can also launch your kayak or paddleboard there. The voluntary neighborhood association meets 6 times a year at the Sara Bay Country Club. Dues are $30.00 annually and allow you to dine at the Club. There are also neighborhood events, a holiday party and 6 newsletters annually. This home has strong bones and noise reducing windows installed by the airport. This is the perfect spot to realize the Florida lifestyle in a charming and nostalgic area.
