DeSoto Acres Homes for Sale

DeSoto Acres is in north Sarasota in the 34234 and 34243 zip codes.

DeSoto Acres is one of the oldest and unique neighborhoods in Sarasota, FL located off University Parkway. The community offers 350 homesites boasting large lots with a minimum of 2 acres. The earliest home was built in 1925, yet most were built during the 1970’s. Mixed in are a few newer homes built around 2014. The variety of architectural styles add to the community’s overall appeal.

The DeSoto Acres neighborhood is appealing to residents who want large lots west of I-75 and have a love of animals.  Many residents have horses, dogs, cats, and peacocks. You will also find bald eagles, ospreys, owls, herons, and other forms of wildlife throughout the community

Although at one time 2 acre lots could be divided into one-acre lots, this is no longer allowed.  DeSoto Acre homeowners can have a guest home for the use of family members, yet the spaces cannot be rented out to tenants.

Nearby is the Sarasota-Bradenton International airport, University Parkway with an abundance of shops and dining, the University Town Center, and the arts and culture of Sarasota downtown.  The beautiful area beaches are a short 20 minutes away.
