Located in South Florida, the city of Sarasota is known for its beautiful weather and great beaches. After all, what’s not to love about a place where you wear shorts almost year round? However, something many people don’t know is that Sarasota is also home to lots of incredible architecture. Post World War II, the Sarasota School of Architecture designed several homes along the Florida Gulf Coast, and now one of those homes, The Cooney House, has officially been placed on the market with an asking price of $1.6 million. With just over 2,000 square feet of living space, the home was once considered one of the most beautiful in all of Sarasota. Despite being built in 1967, the home has an extremely modern feel. In 2013, the house underwent more than $800,000 worth of renovations, and now with a new and updated feel, it’s certainly going to make a lovely home for whoever decides to make the purchase.
According to the property’s listing, “Some admirers remark that the residence feels like a three-dimensional Mondrian painting. After the owners completely renovated the home, the architect, Tim Seibert, commended their results as reinforcing his original design. Winner of numerous awards, architects and historians prize this home for its flawless simplicity.” With an incredible open floor plan and beautiful outdoor grounds, is easy to see why this home has always been held in such high esteem. Th home’s history combined with its undeniable design mean that it won’t likely be on the market for very long. Check out these beautiful pictures of The Cooney House in Sarasota Florida.
