If you were to look for the exact center of activities and amenities on the Sarasota real estate map, you would find Forest Lakes. With a very convenient location, Forest Lakes Country Club Estates is just minutes to everything—downtown Sarasota, Siesta and Lido beaches, shopping at Westfield Southgate Shopping Center, corner markets within a mile, and an assortment of popular restaurants. Once an active golf community—and may be once again—most homes back to the green space that was formerly home to the golf course, creating a feeling of openness and expansive living. But what really distinguishes this community of homes in Sarasota is its established, cohesive neighborhood, where mandatory deed restrictions ensure it maintains its special character.
