Its heavily wooded streets, lush tropical landscaping and wide range of residences give Cherokee Park, Sarasota a sense of charm, history, and community. Close to everything by way of amenities, Cherokee Park residents can walk, bike, or take a short drive to reach Siesta Key, Southside Village, downtown, Selby Gardens, Sarasota Bayfront Park and the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center.
Cherokee Park was platted in 1925 by a Scot named James C. Brown. In order to build a residence for himself, he purchased a former orange grove just south of the city limits from a Mr. A.E. Cummer. There, he built a magnificent Mediterranean revival residence which was named Cherokee Lodge. This home remained on the property until it was torn down in the 1960s. Most of the platted lots in Cherokee Park remained unsold until the post-World War II real estate boom.
Today, Cherokee Park is highly-coveted by Sarasota homebuyers—professionals and families alike—who, not only appreciate its proximity to downtown, but also the beauty and character of the neighborhood and its luxury homes. With its wide streets, towering oaks and lush landscaping, Cherokee Park has the feel of an old-time neighborhood brought back from the past.
The following streets make up Cherokee Park real estate: Cherokee Dr, Cherokee Ter, N Lodge Dr, North Dr, S Lodge Dr and South Dr.
