One of Sarasota’s most unusual upscale neighborhoods, Lido Shores combines a unique architectural history with the finest of modern luxury homes. The dramatic sunsets and natural beauty of the northern end of Lido Key provide the perfect scenic backdrop for some of the most significant creations by the area’s most talented local architects.

In the early 1950s, progressive developer Philip Hiss hired Paul Rudolph to design a group of modernist homes on the northern edge of Lido Key across New Pass from Longboat Key. Rudolph was the most prominent member of a group of visionary architects that came to be known as the Sarasota School of Architecture. Their designs mixed innovative and native materials, including cypress, aluminum, and terrazzo floors, and cultivated an air quality and spaciousness that blurred the boundaries between the inside and outside of homes, celebrating the inviting climate and surroundings of Florida’s Sunshine Coast. (Rudolph later became Dean of the Yale School of Architecture).

Some of the original homes in Lido Shores, like the “Umbrella House” Rudolph designed as Hiss’ residence, are still in existence, having been lovingly restored and renovated.

Others have been torn down to make room for larger mansions. But the tradition of modernism is alive and well in the neighborhood, reflected in the works of contemporary architects like Guy Peterson and Jonathan Parks, which coexist well with the Mediterranean Revival style villas and palladium design homes of Clifford Scholz.

Many of the 116 homes front the Gulf of Mexico, New Pass, Pansy Bayou and Sarasota Bay, and take advantage of direct deepwater boating access to the bay and Gulf. A private deeded entrance to the white sand beach is available to all Lido Shores residents. Many take the opportunity to walk from there to world-renowned St. Armand’s Key to the south to enjoy its restaurants and shops.

For buyers attracted to modernist architecture, Lido Shores is a must-see. As many of its residents – professionals, artists and retirees – say, “Lido Shores is a very special place, unlike any other on the Gulf Coast.”
