Bay Street Offers Sarasota Living without the Traffic and Expense

While construction continues in the brand new community of Bay Street, D.R. Horton’s Southwest Florida Division announces a few quick move-in opportunities starting in the low-$200s, making it the perfect time to purchase a new home in advance of the snow birds’ return. Three professionally decorated models are also available in this luxurious gated community of carriage homes and townhomes. Located in the charming town of Osprey, Bay Street is convenient for commuters, as well as those who enjoy a Sarasota lifestyle without the traffic, congestion, and expense.
Osprey is located on the Intracoastal Waterway and features important historic sites and wildlife refuges, including Historic Spanish Point and Oscar Scherer State Park, a protected habitat for the threatened Florida scrub-jay. Museums, nature trails, and botanical gardens are also nearby.
Home plans include the Heron, an upper-level plan featuring two bedrooms, two baths, and a one-car garage for approximately 1,244 square feet of living space, while the upper-level Ibis plan offers an additional bedroom for 1,528 square feet of living space. The Osprey is a ground-level plan with two bedrooms, two baths, den, and an oversized one-car garage or optional two-car garage, with 1,573 square feet of living space. An even more spacious floor plan is the two-story Spoonbill, a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath townhome offering 1,655 square feet of living space starting in the high-$200s.
Conveniently located on the Southeast corner of East Bay Street and US 41, Bay Street is only one-half mile from Pine View School. This grade 2 through 12 facility has been repeatedly ranked as the No. 6 high school in the nation by U.S. News and World Report. Bay Street is within easy access to the beaches of Venice and Nokomis, and the shopping, dining, and entertainment destinations along Tamiami Trail and Sarasota County. Department store and grocery shopping is within walking distance of Bay Street.
Planned community amenities include a resort-style pool, outdoor grilling area, social room, fitness center, and cabana.
