The Home Where Walter Farley Wrote the Black Stallion Books is Finally For Sale.
The home—a rarely seen Sarasota School of Architecture gem—is on the market for $1.9 million.
Of all the famous homes that made up the Sarasota School of Architecture, the Farley house is one of the most mysterious. Few people have been there and even the experts are a little confused as to exactly where it is, or even if it still exists. The main reason: It has never changed hands. It’s still owned by the Farley family, which built it back in 1953.
Visiting the home today offers a unique experience. You step back in time into a Sarasota School home that has never been altered. All the details are original, and the signature motifs—the Ocala block construction, clerestory windows, mahogany louvers to let in the breeze—are all there. When the windows are open, as they always were in those days, you hear the gentle waves. You can see what an exhilarating surprise these homes must have been when new.
