This is your chance to own a piece of history. Marvelous mid-century modern gulf-front residence designed by one of Sarasota’s most influential and prolific architects, Tim Seibert, stated “this home was one of my best residential projects, perhaps largely due to the site.” Framed by breathtaking 180 degree views of the azure waters of Gulf of Mexico this 1.53-acre lot is enveloped by grand oaks and lush tropical landscape that takes you back in time. Preservationists - bring this iconic group of three pavilion houses connected by screened walkways, blurring the lines between inside and out to its original glory or own this rare, large and deep estate-sized lot to craft your own glorious Haven on the water. Features of this property include a Thomas Jefferson inspired serpentine brick wall that wraps around the property for tranquility and privacy, greenhouse, lap pool, large looking pond, gardens and expansive trellis with glorious white and lavender wisteria. A charming guesthouse with private deck overlooking a flora canopy below completes this home. For those seeking a one-of-a-kind lifestyle within a peaceful paradise don’t let this iconic residence/rare site get away!
