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

 … "The idea for a British design-led agency came to Hill in 2004 when as a writer at Wallpaper* magazine he was sent to Florida to interview an estate agent, Martie Lieberman, who was growing Modern Sarasota — then an unusual business.  

“There was a flowering of really good architecture in Sarasota in the 1950s made by [architect] Paul Rudolph, and there was a real scene there — loads of fantastic, relatively modest houses,” he says. “[Lieberman] had recognised that there were savvy New Yorkers who wanted Paul Rudolph-designed holiday homes. And so she had a preservation angle.”

SOLD by Martie: Architecture on the beach! Voted one of 100 Best Buildings by AIA Florida, this one of a kind residence was designed by renowned architect and author William Morgan, FAIA for his own family. You will love the friendly North Atlantic Beach location, where neighbors can be seen running, riding bikes, walking dogs on the beach and along the charming streets of this beachfront community. Dining and shops are nearby in the delightful beachfront village. This one-owner home has three bedrooms and three and one-half baths. William Morgan's architectural study is still handsomely built into the loft, and painter Bunny Morgan's artist studio overlooks the ocean.
