Here is a professionally renovated Sarasota landmark. A magical winter retreat developed by a Westinghouse in 1927. Now a 4 bed, 2 and one half bath home with as much drama and architectural detail as any Ringling era estate home. Also includedon this large parcel of land just steps from Sarasota Bay is a two car carriage house currently being used as a media room with a charming office above that looks out over neighborhood tree canopy with glimmering bay waters beyond. Known as MediterraneanRevival style of architecture, this home was completely renovated in the last decade including all new wiring and new plumbing. All of the barrel tile roofs have been replaced and the kitchen updated and modernized to function in a new century. However, you'll still find the appeal of a bygone era including soaring vaulted ceilings made of pecky cypress adorned with hand forged wrought iron fixtures, refinished oak floors throughout and a centrally located wood burning fireplace. More unique featuresinclude a small fireplace welcoming you on the front porch but behind a decorative gated entry and a fireplace in the second level master suite. We only have a dozen of these masterpiece homes left in Sapphire Shores, a mid 1920's development designed to compliment the historic and nearby Ringling properties which include the gilded era mansion known as Ca d' Zan, the Ringling Museum of Art and the Charles Ringling mansion which now houses the University of South Florida. Minutes to downtown Sarasota.
