my next house
Point of Rocks Rd - Sarasota: This incredible display of Prairie style architecture was designed by the legendary John Randal McDonald in 1979, a follower of Frank Lloyd Wright. Sited on 180 feet of private Gulf of Mexico beachfront, this home captures spectacular views from each and every room. A bold open design gives way to stunning sightlines utilizing; multi-level flowing spaces, double-sided fireplace, open riser staircases and a continuous span of sliding glass doors. Privacy is created by moving partitions and operable shutters. Functional spaces and storage areas are skillfully concealed behind sliding Brazilian mahogany panels. Innovative before its time, this home incorporates energy saving features such as, floor air conditioning ducts and glass skylights working with our tropical Florida climate. Steel pilings and mahogany clapboard insure that this home is structurally sound. Price reduced from $3.9mil to $2.9mil. What a bargain!
