Property Description

Views of sunset colors, and lush tropical landscaping adorn this rarely available historic and iconic atomic ranch home located West of Trail in Bay View Heights. Midcentury modern elements, cantilever roof lines, expansive covered porch areas, a vaulted living room ceiling, and large front and back windows create an indoor-outdoor feeling, and provide cross ventilation, while adorning the soothing verdant setting. The house, nestled in a mature garden lined with white crushed shell meandering paths, offers a three-bedroom split plan, each with en-suite baths, plus a separate air-conditioned art studio/office overlooking the courtyard and surrounded by gardens. The main living area has vaulted ceilings and is opened to the den/family room area. The galley-style kitchen has cabinet doors with thick clear double reeded glass, a skylight, stainless steel countertops, and a vintage 1959 Frigidaire Custom Deluxe Flair range with a double oven and a pullout drawer. The adjacent utility room is great for storage and can be converted into a huge walk-in kitchen pantry addition or wine storage area. There is a formal dining room with lovely garden views. The master bedroom has a walk-through closet, and the en-suite bath has dual sinks. There is ample storage throughout the house as well as in the carport area. The trough fountain water garden, stocked with aquatic plants and goldfish, creates a reflective view of dappled light and meditative space visible from the den. Owned and appreciated by international landscape architects, the garden is rich with exotic flowering plants and trees, a lush xeriscape design with well water irrigation, and a designated area of raised planting garden beds for cultivating flowers and vegetables. Highly desirable location within two blocks to Sarasota Bay for kayaking, close proximity to Southside Village, Southside Elementary School and Sarasota Memorial Hospital. The property is located at one of Sarasota's highest points, and although you can see Sarasota Bay from the street, the house is not in a flood zone. New roof in 2019. Please note that the vintage Herman Miller Bubble Light fixtures are excluded from the sale. Property to be sold "As Is.”
