Welcome to one of Florida's very best examples of mid-century modern architecture, the iconic Round House, originally the Leech Art Studio, designed by Sarasota School of Architecture originals, Jack West & Elizabeth Waters and beautifully updated by contemporary Sarasota architect Tatiana White AIA. Now it is regarded as one of Sarasota's 10 Most Beautiful Homes according to Sarasota Magazine. This private compound includes three lots, the Round House, heated pool and lovely gardens are on two of the lots. The third lot is vacant and is buildable as a new, separate property, or an excellent opportunity to build an important architectural gem within the compound for extended family and guests. The current owner uses the well-groomed third lot for privacy and as parking for events at the property. Please note - this property is not in a flood zone. Appliances are under warranty, including new (2018) air conditioning and condenser. Roof is resurfaced every 5 years (2018) and heated pool has new heat pump (2018), a custom cover to retain heat (2019), and pool surface was acid-washed (2018). See sellers disclosure for a complete list of more updates. Room dimensions are estimated, as the house is round - but floor plans are available for your kind review. There is no sign, and all showings are by appointment, seller requests qualified buyers only, please.
