Whitfield Estates is the oldest planned community in Manatee and Sarasota counties. It was also the first residential golfing community in Sarasota opening in 1926 with Tommy Armour, known better as “The Silver Scot” as head professional and Robert “Bobby” Jones was the sales manager for the real estate featuring half an acre lots. Whitfield Estates has evolved over the last century into approximately 1,400 homes in twelve neighborhoods reaching from Magellan Drive on the north to Braden Avenue on the south end. Architecture is diverse including sleek modernist homes on the water, original 1920’s Mediterranean revival style homes and 1950’s Florida ranch homes.

Nearby points of interest include the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, New College, the University of South Florida, Ringling College of Art and Design, the Asolo Theater, and Sarasota Bradenton International Airport.

East of Whitfield lies one of the oldest neighborhoods outside the City of Sarasota. Desoto Acres offers “Country Estates in The Heart of Town” where owners can keep horses and still be just 30 minutes from the beach. There are 350 houses and the lots are all two acres or larger. Homes built in the 1940’s have neighbors with newly constructed homes.
