Love the uniqueness, look and craftsmanship of a historic home but need something more representative of today's modern lifestyle? Look no further than this stunning East of the Trail estate. Sited on an oversized lot in the dynamic Arlington Park Neighborhood, this walled and gated 1925 Mediterranean Revival home is just minutes from downtown Sarasota and all the shopping, dining and cultural activities it has to offer.
