Bird Key is an island located between Downtown Sarasota and St. Armand's Circle on Lido Key with 511 home sites, more than half of which are either on canals or on the Sarasota Bay front.  Developed in the late 50s, it's become a favorite for folks who enjoy being so close to the sands of Lido Beach, the shopping and dining on St. Armands or the cultural offerings of downtown.  The prices for a modest garden-view ranch generally runs in the $800,000s and the drop-dead views of Ringling Bridge off Meadowlark or Mourning Dove will run you $5-7 million, depending on the size and age.  Note: There is a Guard Gate but it is not secured, however Security DOES patrol regularly via cart/car.
