Rarely does the opportunity come along to own a true mid-century modern gem that also happens to be within walking distance of world-renowned Siesta Key Beach. The current owners meticulously renovated the property to provide all of today’s conveniences and comforts while embracing its original mid-century character and charm.

Classic mid-century Ocala block was uncovered in pristine condition by the homeowners during renovation.

This fully furnished 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath home sits on a ⅓+ acre corner lot with beautiful tropical landscaping, a circular drive, and a private, resort-style pool and spa. Prepare to be impressed with the architectural intention of this home. Its clean lines, layout, two screened-in lanais, transom windows, and four sets of sliding glass doors bathe the house in natural light and keep it true to its blending of indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

Whether you are enjoying a poolside cocktail or lounging with a good book in your own private oasis, you’ll find it easy to slow down, listen to the wind pass through the palm trees, and enjoy the moment. Inside, you’ll find polished terrazzo floors, a vaulted wood-beam ceiling, and a wood-burning fireplace in the living room, along with an updated chef’s kitchen.
