Island Mid-Century Modern, Walk to Private Beach Access
Venice, Florida Mid-Century Modern
SOLD by Martie - June 2023
This mid-century modern gem (1959) on the Island of Venice comes with a prized Golden Beach private access to the Gulf of Mexico. The well-maintained home was built during the heyday of the Sarasota School of Architecture, and you will love discovering its original hallmarks, including three-quarter-inch thick, tongue and groove vaulted wood ceilings and walls, light-filled clerestory windows, the living room's dramatic centerpiece fireplace, and the iconic stacked Ocala block and brick walls with their famous exuberant grid pattern that enhances the Florida landscape and tropical setting. The master bedroom's en-suite master bath addition has a large sauna, walk-in shower and many custom details. The patio is accessible from the screened porch and a charming walkway that winds its way around the property. There is a large screened porch, an outdoor shower and a workshop with electric, and double doors that open for big projects if you need it. This could be a terrific art studio and storage area. The Island of Venice is one of the most desirable places to live in the USA, located between Sarasota and Naples. You'll love the Island's laid-back style, and enjoy walking and biking to nearby restaurants, shops, yoga and island beaches. This home is in a quiet neighborhood, yet it is close to historic downtown Venice, galleries, theater, and easy access to the Venetian Waterway bike and walking trail, and the very popular Legacy Trail, a 'rails to trails' project which goes to downtown Sarasota to the North and down to North Port to the South. This property is not in a flood zone.
