You will love this original mid-century modern beachfront home on the Gulf of Mexico, hidden away by almost two acres of lush foliage. Designed for the Farley family (1956) by Sarasota School of Architecture icons Ralph Twitchell & Jack West, the four bedroom, four bath home and separate artist's studio is where Stallion books were written by beloved author Walter Farley. Mrs. Farley loved architecture and worked with Sarasota modern architects to create a magical place for their artistic family to thrive. The main house sits directly on the beach, beyond where you can build today, but if you want to save or restore the structures there are incentives or rules in place to help you accomplish this. Inside you will find original terrazzo floors, floor to ceiling glass, wood jalousies, 8' tall doors, huge built-in closets, desks, cabinets, and a fireplace originally designed by Paul Rudolph for the Revere Quality House. The land goes from beach to jungle, with beautiful Florida flora and fauna and long winding drive from the street. There is a natural creek that provides beauty and privacy along the North side of the property. The house and grounds need work. Sellers have not lived there for many years, and cannot warrant its condition. You will want a thorough and complete inspection to consider its renovation capabilities. A new survey (2019) and some original floor plans are available for your kind review. Call now to see this property with your architect or builder. SEE MLS A4443020 Vacant Land listing.
