That’s why I’m so excited about my new listing at 1204 Hillview Drive in Harbor Acres. It’s a timeless 7,600+-square-foot home , listed for $7,750,000, built in 2008 and designed by award-winning architect Clifford M. Scholz.

The five-bedroom+ home at 1204 Hillview Drive has sweeping Bayfront views that span the tip of Harbor Acres. All the major rooms enjoy beautiful views plus the two 50’ terraces are perfect spots to enjoy a glass of wine while watching the nightly sunsets.

Being so close to Sarasota’s vibrant Downtown, the Bayfront, schools, the Hospital Corridor and basically, everything else that happens in Sarasota …. there is no wonder that Harbor Acres is home to many of our “who’s who”.  We love the feel of Harbor Acres-the streets seem a bit wider, the lots a bit larger and the architectural styles are so varied.
