Property Description

Those familiar with mid-century Sarasota might recognize this as a 1965 Ruth Richmond ranchette. That means we have a quality-built house. The extra steps Richmond Homes took are legendary and can still be found in surviving brochures. Superior lot preparation, material choices, efficient floor plans, large pocketing glass doors to bring the outside in for the “Florida Lifestyle”. But when you view this property don’t expect to find “frozen in time”, kitschy features for this place has been transformed. Most buildings grow and adapt. Some that are well loved, become part of a continual flow as our needs and uses change over time. While this house still presents a modest exterior, what lies behind is now a three bed, two bath house, with a charming “coastal cottage” aesthetic. Inside you'll find a split plan, a private interior porch/courtyard, a luxurious master bath Ruth Richmond would have highly approved of (I’ve seen her actual home on Bird Key) and a unique floorplan allowing multiple uses. That’s the difference today. We want home offices. We need room for live in family members. We want rental income. How about the Zoom Room? A second living room with a bar and kitchenette? This property has it all and functions as a fun, modern ranch just as well as a 2 bed 1 bath with an adjacent 1 bed 1 bath dwelling. It’s a large lot in a non-deed restricted neighborhood so there’s room for the boat or RV and still plenty of space for a garage or pool. This is what many people appreciate about the Indian Beach/Sapphire Shores neighborhood. You’ll be surrounded by your neighbor’s pride of ownership in an eclectic bay front neighborhood but enjoy the freedom of avoiding planned communities with their exorbitant fees and regulations. Live here to be nestled between many of Sarasota’s most prominent cultural and educational institutions. These include the John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art, the Asolo Theater of Performing Arts, New College of Florida and the Ringling College of Art & Design. Just minutes north of downtown Sarasota and the Ringling Bridge which spans to serene Gulf of Mexico beaches on Lido and Longboat Key.
