You'll love this mid-century Florida modern residence (1965) designed for relaxed, inside-outside living by Miami architect Arthur Breakstone. Situated on over an acre, this unique home's private entry begins with a large screened 35' x 20' courtyard and fountain. Once inside you'll enjoy the way the living room, artist's studio, kitchen and dining room areas open, with sliding walls of glass, to very spacious screened porches in back, and a 34' x 14' swimming pool. The pool is surrounded by a very large patio area, and is completely fenced with custom designed cedar and a special trellis ready for your colorful bougainvilla. 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. Very close to the Legacy Trail Bike Path, Oscar Scherer State Park, and Casperson, Venice, Nokomis and Siesta Beaches. Just 10 minutes to downtown Venice, 20 to Sarasota, 5 minutes to access I-75. This is a delightful property.
