This is a rare, authentic exquisitely restored & renovated 1950's Ocala block island home in the Sarasota School of Architecture tradition. Location is 3 blocks from the beach, walking distance to historic downtown on the Island of Venice, just south of Sarasota. The 3 bedroom home has original terrazzo floors, rich cypress walls & cabinetry, fireplace, beamed high ceilings and clerestory windows. The home was lovingly restored & furnished in authentic retro style with original Heywood Wakefield & period furniture and accessories throughout.


Fiesta dishes, 50's cutlery, retro records , tapes, books & other retro entertainment-all evoke the era of Elvis. Bicycles, retro rattan patio furniture, hammock & backyard grill all complete the fun. Yet the home also has all the modern conveniences with brand new top of the line appliances, central air, TV, DVD, VCR, CD player and wireless Internet. The beach, fishing pier, Intracoastal waterway, and charming downtown Venice are all a short walk or bike ride away.


Watersports abound. Come and enjoy the beautiful sunsets & beaches. Take a guided tour of the waterways, a horse & carriage tour of downtown or visit our local cultural attractions.-Venice Theatre, the recently expanded Venice Art Center, Venice Cultural Center, The Venice History & Archives etc. Sarasota & its multiplicity of attractions & entertainments is just a short drive north. This gem of a home & its surrounding community are a living tribute to the 50's. Come relive or experience for the first time the pleasures of the fifties in classic beachfront , small town America.
