You will love this original mid-century modern beachfront home on the Gulf of Mexico, hidden away from view by almost two acres of lush foliage. Designed for the Farley family (1953-1956) by Sarasota School of Architecture icons Ralph Twitchell & Jack West, the four bedroom, four bath home and separate artist's studio is where Black 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 goal. 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. (Can you find it?)

The land itself goes from beach to jungle, with beautiful Florida flora and fauna and long winding driveway from the street. There is a natural creek that runs along the North side of the property. PLEASE NOTE: The house and grounds need serious repairs. The sellers have not lived there for many years.

BE THE HERO THAT RESTORES THIS MAGICAL PROPERTY. A new survey (2019) and some original floor plans are available for your kind review. Please come see this magical place and imagine the possibilities today.  SEE MORE PHOTOS HERE
