About Jen and Jeff Blackburn
We live and work in Richmond, VA. Our six shared children are now young adults living in various locations around the country and we are enjoying our new empty-nester lifestyle. We do a lot of traveling and thrive on new scenery, learning something new and creating great memories with our family and friends.

Why Jen and Jeff Blackburn chose Bird Key
Sarasota really spoke to us--we love the Florida climate and the Gulf Coast is amazing. Sarasota has the best of everything: Beaches voted best in the world, beautiful water, idealic golf courses and a vibrant arts and culinary community. Bird Key is a hidden gem located in the middle of everything. We can walk into downtown Sarasota to the Saturday Farmer's Market, art galleries, shops and restaurants. We can go out our backdoor to pier fish off our private dock, kayak, jet ski, play with dolphins in the bay. St. Armand's Circle offers wonderful shops, people watching and restaurants. We can ride our bikes to Mote Aquarium or Lido Beach. We are in the center of everything, but on Bird Key we feel like we are also in a very private and exclusive neighborhood. We can be in the heart of the vibrant life just outside our neighborhood or enjoy the peace and tranquility of Bird Key and our own backyard.
What makes this House unique
We love our home and are proud to share it with others. It is not a property for everyone. The extensive landscaping is a neighborhood jewel and has been featured on garden tours. We've spared no expense in furnishing it, and we enjoy collecting art. Jen is an artist and many of the photographs and canvases are her work. Living on the water we enjoy incredible water birds all day long. Our property has 2 kayaks and 2 bikes available to renters. Our lanai features a Lucas Lagoons designed pool and spa. We have an outdoor bar and kitchen and firepits inside the lanai as well as outside down near the dock. The second floor features a large game room with a beautiful pool table.
