SOLD - THE PALMER HOUSE: You will love this one of a kind mid-century waterfront property designed by Architect Dan Duckham, well known for his creative Organic Architecture. The Palmer House, according to the architect, followed the development of circular forms into a kind of free-form vocabulary. Everything is circular here, and flows beautifully. The 2 bedrooms and full office / study have built-in beds, desks and storage areas, and sliding glass doors that open to landscaped courtyards, gardens, decks, and finally converge at a striking triangular 39 x 31 pool overlooking Julie Lagoon, a freshwater canal off of beautiful Lake Hanna. Mostly furnished, and move-in ready for you. Bring your kayaks!

SEE PHOTOS OF PROPERTY HERE: Wait until you see the round window in the living room, and the built-in fireplace, curvilinear custom seating areas and spectacular open, volume ceilings and skylights.

This courtyard-style home is nestled in Lutz, located 15 minutes from Tampa's airport and universities - near everything you need to do, but tucked away in a quiet, peaceful environment. There is no homeowner's association or HOA fees. Owners say you can park up to 9 cars in the driveway. On septic & well, there are already some green features in place. Interesting article about this property and the architect, Dan Duckham is available for your kind review.  Thank you for your interest!

Also in the back, the ensuite master bedroom has its own private, screened (13'x16') porch and sunken bath. All 3 bedrooms have large walk-in closets. The kitchen and dining room areas flow from the front to the back of the house, and if opened up could measure 22x20' combined. The roof was replaced 2013. There is a 2-car side-load attached garage (22'x20') with lots of built-in storage, and a separate 12x20 workshop building.

This property does not require flood insurance. It has plenty of room for a horse, RV, boat and toys.

November 13, Sunday, from 1-4 I will host the Herron House for its owners during the Sarasota Architectural Foundation's MOD Weekend, honoring Sarasota School of Architecture legend Victor Lundy. The Herron House has been beautifully restored by Ursula Kohl and Peter Bartos, who use this mid-century architectural icon as their cherished private island home.

The Herron House is, to me, the essence of Victor Lundy's work in Florida, and is often used to illustrate his mid-century period. In 1962, LOOK Magazine wrote about the Herron House and its architect and published a number of vintage photos, including these - by Phillip Harrington.

Ursula Kohl and Peter Bartos have been renovating and restoring projects in Europe and SW Florida for over 25 years, from large city buildings to small architectural gems. SEE EXAMPLES HERE

I have the honor of helping them buy and sell many of their Florida properties, including the Castile House, the Cooney House, a Sarasota mid-century modern gem and one of Ursula and Peter's favorites, Manasota Beach House, a Bauhaus-inspired modern property with beautiful contemporary finishes. It is ready for a modern architecture lover like YOU to move right in. Please contact me privately at 941.724.1118 to learn more about it.
