Connecting with Nature and Community in The Landings

Over the course of decades, The Landings has grown to encompass so much of what Sarasota is about. With over 700 residences ranging in style from single-family homes to villas in the trees, this community seems to offer a little something for everyone.

Located just west of the Trail near Proctor Road, The Landings is ideally situated just a few minutes from both downtown Sarasota and the pristine beaches for which our area is so well-known. A gated and deed-restricted community, The Landings features meandering roads that wind among large shade trees, tranquil lakes, an assortment of nature trails, and a true appreciation for Florida's natural beauty. Nowhere is this more evident than among the 76 multi-level townhouses designed to coalesce with the natural environment.

These villas range from approximately 1,900 to 2,300 square feet, and each have 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. The bedrooms each feature their own private decks as well as a shared deck for the unit, many of which have been altered to accommodate the tree limbs and foliage. For those who have longed to live in a treehouse since they were children, or for those who simply want to be nearer to nature while close to urban amenities, the treehouses at the Landings are a dream come true for many.

The Landings isn't entirely about treehouses; if you prefer sprawling spaces, The Landings features well over 200 single-family homes ranging in size from 2,000 to over 6,000 square feet. Contributing to the diversity of Sarasota's architecture, styles include Mediterranean, Traditional and Contemporary with a scattering of New England-style cottages. 

The Landings also caters to condominium dwellers. Five large condominium mid-rises known as Phillippi Landings boast beautiful views and boat slips along the Phillippi Creek. Its smaller units range from 1,700 to 2,000 square feet of living space, while penthouse units range between 3,760 to 7,280 square feet. As the entirety of the community is exclusive and gated, The Landings also holds a number of beautiful waterfront mansions.

Most of the residences in The Landings were built in the 1980s, and while many have been updated, they retain the elegant curb appeal of that day. In short, The Landings has a style all its own and has become an icon of Sarasota living. Close to shopping and beaches while ensconced in natural surroundings, those who call this neighborhood home have a very unique privilege.

Residents range widely in ages and careers, and are all eligible for membership at The Landings Racquet Club, which features eight very well-maintained Har-Tru Tennis Courts, professional tennis instructors, an Olympic-size heated swimming pool, spa, fitness center, and a clubhouse with a library and meeting rooms that host an variety of social gatherings such as book clubs, bridge, mahjong, yoga, Pilates, Jazzercise, and Zumba.

From the active calendar of the Landings Racquet Club to strolls, power walks, and bicycle rides through the many tree-lined streets, The Landings has become a neighborhood dedicated to being active, connected, and engaged with all Sarasota has to offer.
