What we like about this property

This beautifully preserved mid-century treasure couldn’t have gone to a better steward than the author of “Sarasota Modern” who recognized not only its historic pedigree, but refined and restored it into a shining example of the east coast modernist movement. We love its expressive period features and impeccable vintage style. 

Description

This home located in Lakeland Florida is part of the lesser known Sarasota School of mid-century architecture. Developed and founded by famed architects Paul Rudolph, Gene Leedy and Mark Hampton, they were the vanguard of a thriving east coast architectural movement that closely mirrored the Case Study projects on the west coast.

Discovered by author and design authority Andrew Weaving, this heritage house is at the epicenter of the region that is also home to the largest concentration of Frank Lloyd Wright structures in the world. Designed and built by Hampton in 1956, the home’s original structure and furnishings are largely intact, and both the exterior and interiors have been immaculately preserved.

The low slung horizontal silhouette was constructed of steel beams and open plan spaces that incorporate the natural environment with walls of glass. All of the original finishes, fixtures and detail remain including walnut walls and cabinetry, terrazo and marble and beautiful stained glass screens that divide the living and dining areas. A finely curated collection of vintage art, decor and furnishings complement the period architecture creating a living museum of mid-century style. With two en suite bedrooms, the house sleeps four and is ideal for entertaining with a fully equipped kitchen and dining for six inside or poolside.

This is a rare and strikingly preserved treasure that transports you back in time with flawless style.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, TV, housekeeping and laundry facilities.  

AROUND

Lakeland and the nearby Winter Haven and Lake Hollingsworth are part of a lesser known mid century architectural enclave of east coast modernism that is also home to the largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings in the world. Just a short drive to Winter Haven, you’ll also find many examples of the Gene Leedy buildings and homes here. Sarasota and the Sarasota School architecture buildings are just over an hour drive and Tampa and the bay areas of Clearwater and St. Petersburg are under and hour west. Miami lies a few hours south.  

LOCATION

Lakeland Florida. Nearest Airport: Tampa International Airport (40 miles)

    One of the most well preserved Moderns I’ve ever seen. Impeccable in every way. I walked in with a decent understanding of Mid- Century Modern architecture, and left with a deep appreciation. Andrew was very helpful and accommodating, promptly answering any questions I had. When you arrive, you know you’re staying someplace special. I look forward to returning sometime soon.

    Our stay was a fantastic experience. Every piece of furniture dates from the late 1950’s. If you love design, this is it! It still feels so contemporary. Also, the proximity of the lake is great (and beautiful to stroll). Lakeland is a strategic location to visit both Orlando and the west coast. Wonderful.

    Really good architecture and a delightful place, near Frank Lloyd Wright’s largest body of work at Florida Southern College. Lovely and fun place!
