move in now! This purchase offers you the fantastic opportunity to work with renowned
Sarasota School of Architect’s Frank Folsom Smith to build a home that will serve you,
body and soul. Frank has owned this property for several years and has come up with
this design he calls "The Flex House". A Modern Zero energy design for Florida’s climate
that delivers Florida comfort and connection while making you energy self-sufficient and
hurricane ready. The home features an exquisite owner’s suite, wonderful master bath
with a separate garden tub, walled Zen garden, outdoor shower, and gate to the pool.
Outside the enclosed pool area is a larger privacy walled courtyard bringing the outside
in to the living space and covered lanai. Inside the 12’ ceilinged great room and open
kitchen offer exquisite Florida living with masterful design awaiting your requirements
and finishes. Above the garage are a den/study area plus 2 BRs and a full bath. The
oversized garage has plenty of storage but every space is designed for utility and
convenience with built in storage at hand. The home feature a generous entry foyer and
adjacent den/ office with an en-suite bathroom which could be great as an extra
bedroom. You can sit down with Frank today, make your final changes and selections
and be out to bid before the ink is dry.
The existing 1BR/1BA Guest House has been lovingly remodeled to a high green
standard by Frank and is a great place for you to stay while your new home is being
built. New plumbing, electrical, and insulation along with Low-E hurricane rated
windows and doors deliver quiet safety and comfortable living. Attached to the guest
house is the original 1923 garage, now airconditioned, providing an opportunity for live
work or hobby space. The front courtyard wall could be made high to give separation if
the end-use of the guest house is for rental or left low if you want to incorporate the
guest house with the new contemporary home.
The land is in zone “x” requiring no flood insurance and buildable on grade. Truly lovely
mature trees, palms, and tropical flora grace this quiet side street in the highly
desirable Indian Beach neighborhood. around the corner from “A rated” Bay Shore
Elementary and Indian Beach Park on the Bayfront. Minutes to downtown shopping or
the Ringling Museum, Asolo Theater, Ringling College, New College, USF, and Sarasota
airport you will be at home here.
This “Flex Home” could be a live-work, raise your kids, retirement, multi-generation,
kids-home-from-college, live-in help/home care, age in place home, or any combination
of the above. This is a thoughtful high design healthy living space for today and
tomorrow. If this piques your interest, the final home build and price will depend on your design considerations and level of finishes, but here's a chance to shave months off the design & permitting process & work with a master.
