Gene Leedy Lakefront Home in Gated Lakewood

GENE LEEDY LAKEFRONT RESIDENCE IN GATED LAKEWOOD…Rare opportunity to own a piece of architectural history with this impressive Gene Leedy design, a founding father of The Sarasota School of Architecture. Known as the Sands Residence, this mid-century modern home was constructed in 1965 by Mr. and Mrs. Sands and has never left their ownership until now. The three story stature of this lakefront home makes it an absolute showplace and stands among one of the most impressive examples of Mr. Leedys’ works of art. Throughout the home’s 3543 sqft of living area you will find all of the elements that earmark a Leedy home from the Ocala block, pre-stressed concrete and long-span “double-tee” beam ceilings, cork flooring as well as the clean line interiors that hold true to the rule of “form follows function”. The Sands brought their own touch to the property with the addition of some amazing black ironwork that was salvaged from the old Ocala Post Office. Rear balconies not only offer amazing tree-top views of pristine Lake Otis, but you can also see several other Leedy designs that dot the lake’s shoreline. In addition to having direct frontage on Lake Otis you will also enjoy access to two other lakes, Little Lake Otis and Lake Link. If you appreciate architecture and have been looking for that one-of-a-kind property with a real story behind it’s existence, look no further!
