Mid-Century Modern on Venice Island
500 Gulf Street, Venice Florida - Walk to Beaches on Gulf of Mexico
$1,149,000 Furnished - Photos!
This furnished, important Mid-Century Modern gem was built during the hey-day of the Sarasota School of Architecture. Fifty years later, Chicago Architect John Banks began a meticulous, sensitive restoration of the original home's terrazzo floors, southern pine wall paneling, clerestory windows, fireplace, jalousie ventilation, vaulted wood beam ceilings, Ocala block walls inside and out, and added low, stacked Ocala block walls to continue the exuberant grid pattern and enhance the landscape. The home is included in TOUR VENICE ARCHITECTURE published by Sarasota Alliance for Historic Preservation. The architect's master suite design was built using the same materials expressed in the original home. The en-suite master bath is simply beautiful, with its illuminating skylight, large walk-in shower, and custom privacy doors. The master bedroom's french doors welcome you outside to a very private family-size garden patio and 3.5' deep heated spa that also functions as a fountain. (Or you can install a new pool there if you like.) The patio is accessible from the screened porch and two bedrooms and has a wonderful sense of privacy, and beautiful landscaping. This home is being sold furnished with interesting vintage and contemporary pieces, and includes some personal items and art. Located between Sarasota and Naples, this historic home is on the Island of Venice, one of the most desirable places to live in the USA. The owners love the Island's laid-back style, and enjoy walking and biking to nearby restaurants, shops, yoga and island beaches. Survey, Floor Plan, and Furnishings list are available for your kind review. This property is NOT in a flood zone. I have more good houses coming up this year.
