The Cooney House, a Midcentury Time Capsule, Asks $875K

New, 5 comments

The Cooney House, one of the renowned "Sarasota Modern" homes built in the 1960s, is on the market for $875K. Designed by Tim Seibert, an original architect of the regional design movement (whose most famous member was Paul Rudolph) and built in 1967, the 2,184 square-foot four-bedroom has earned a ton of praise, local (Sarasota Magazine) and beyond (HGTV), and features an airy living room with floor-to-ceiling glass windows and what the brokerbabble bills as "a secret garden in back." This is the first time the Cooney House has been on the market since 2009, when it sold for $550K, and interest, as evidenced by packed open houses, is already running crazy-high. "The simplicity of form required perfect detailing," Seibert told the Herald-Tribune last month, rightfully patting himself on the back a bit. "Less is more, but the 'less' must be flawlessly done." Below, additional photos of the home, which is filled with—what else!—iconic furniture by Harry Bertoia, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Arne Jacobsen, and more, plus a rockin' chartreuse kitchen.
