Frances Carlton - Luxury Condos in Downtown Sarasota
The Charm and Style of the Twenties
The charm and style of the Roaring Twenties come to life at the venerable Frances Carlton. Located in downtown Sarasota’s arts district on famous Palm Avenue, the Frances Carlton, built in the mid-1920s, is itself an architectural masterpiece as well as a revered Sarasota landmark. Of course, every unit has been remodeled several times; the Mediterranean architecture and design flourishes have been retained along with the elegant wrought-iron gates that surround this special community. The Frances Carlton’s many delightful amenities include gated security, hardwood floors, a heated pool, and scenic Florida landscaping.
Location of Frances Carlton
Perfect Location on Palm Avenue
For many decades, Palm Avenue has been the singular Sarasota location for high-end professional services and world-class shopping venues. Galleries, artists’ studios, charming sidewalk cafes, and offbeat boutiques are only a few of the Avenue’s offerings. And naturally, Palm Avenue is lined with towering Florida palms. Much has changed, but the splendor of the 1920s remains all along Palm and particularly at the Frances Carlton. Sarasota's many acclaimed cultural venues and options are all mere blocks from Palm Avenue: the Ringling Museum of Art, the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, the Sarasota Opera, Historic Asolo Theater, and the Selby Botanical Gardens are only the beginning of the list. Those seeking peace and privacy will find it at the Frances Carlton, and if you prefer an active, outgoing urban lifestyle, the Frances Carlton may also be ideal for you.
Sarasota at Your Fingertips
Beyond the immediate downtown area, the entire Sarasota region is at your fingertips. The Frances Carlton is a mere five minutes from Sarasota’s beautiful barrier islands and sunny Gulf beaches, and it’s less than 30 minutes from respected country clubs and championship golf courses including The Legacy, The Concession, and TPC Prestancia. More than 200 parks, athletic fields, and nature preserves are complemented by an average annual temperature of 73 degrees; gentle breezes from Sarasota Bay cool off even the warmest late-summer afternoons. The climate, location, and amenities would be enough to persuade most prospective homebuyers to check into the Frances Carlton. Throw in the grandeur of the 1920s and some of the area’s most stylish luxury condos, and the Frances Carlton is virtually irresistible.
