You will love this vintage mid-century modern beachfront home on the Gulf of Mexico, hidden away by almost two acres of lush foliage. Designed as a writer's studio and home for the Black Stallion book series author Walter Farley (1956) by Sarasota School of Architecture icons Ralph Twitchell & Jack West, the four-bedroom, four-bath home, and separate artist's studio was a magical place for the 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 the Gulf of Mexico beach through Florida jungle, along an enchanting path ro the street. There is a natural creek that provides beauty and privacy along the N 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), elevation certificate, and misc 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.
