"Welcome to one of Florida's very best examples of mid-century architecture, the iconic Round House - Leech Art Studio, designed for American Painters Dorothy Leech and Hilton Leech, by Sarasota School of Architecture originals, Jack West & Elizabeth Boylston Waters in 1960. Beautifully updated by Sarasota modern architect Tatiana White, the property is one of Sarasota's most beautiful homes according to Sarasota Magazine. The private three-lot compound includes the Round House, heated pool, terraces, and lovely gardens. The home consists of two levels, a ground floor with living room, custom built-in kitchen and dining areas, art gallery & master bedroom, ensuite master bath, and a separate powder room. The second-floor loft space overlooks the first floor and serves as a second bedroom with its own full bath and original skylight. Clearstory windows and strong custom glass doors and windows provide an abundance of natural light and tropical garden views while maintaining ample privacy. Systems maintenance: New air conditioning and condenser (2018), roof is resurfaced every 5 years (2018), heated pool has new heat pump, custom cover to retain heat, and new control panel (2018). All appliances are under warranty. Room dimensions are not exact as the house is round - but floor plans are gladly made available for your kind review. Seen by appointment, seller requests qualified buyers only please. This property is not in a flood zone and expensive flood insurance is not required for its purchase."
