Property Description

This Mid-Century Modern Sarasota School of Architecture "Thyne-Swain House" an Edward "Tim" Seibert Architects designed home has been RESTORED to its Glory and UPDATED for High Performance. Gas stove and on-demand tankless water heater, PV Electric Solar panels, updated plumbing and electrical, closed cell spray foam insulation in the ceiling and outer walls, brand-new commercial-grade roof with a 20-year warranty and slight pitch to shed the water, plus new 6 zones, 3 compressors 24 SEER mini-split AC systems. All these (and more) thoughtful updates make for super low energy bills while maximizing comfort, soundproofing, and longevity of the structure while honoring the original design of the home. Walls of sliding glass disappear leading you out of this "U" shaped design to a massive center courtyard capped with 6" SIP roof (cool & water tight) tied into an 18' wide cement footer (hurricane proof) on the outer edge, effectively increasing the usable square footage of the home by 440 Sq' making the lanai the largest room in the house. This amazing indoor-out design also includes an extremely productive mature organic edible landscape with vegetable beds, fruit trees, herbs and spice trees that provide 30-40% of the food for the owners. Named 1 of 6 nationwide "Best Home Designs of the Year" for 1958 by Better Homes & Gardens Magazine. It is as appealing now (or more so) as it was when it was built, now Modernized for the 21st Century Living and Structural Integrity. Please watch this video and marvel at the design: Featured in: Tampa Tribune, Better Homes & Garden, House and Home, and recently Sarasota Magazine. Are you ready to embrace the joy & liveability of this home and be the next custodian of this architectural masterpiece?
