Location: Nokomis, Fla.
Price: $1,985,000
The Skinny: This excellent example of the Sarasota school of Midcentury Modern residential architecture is, as we like to say, a perfectly preserved time capsule of residential interiors of the 20th century, except in this case the wrong (very wrong) portion of the century has received the embalming treatment. One look inside of the lovely, economical post-and-beam design by Tim Seibert reveals a case study in the décor of 1985: much-vacuumed deep-pile white carpet, dining chairs with casters(!), variegated sofas that deaden the mind by deploying the full spectrum of soothing, snooze-inducing pastels, and polyester quilted bedspreads that come in both varieties: floral and not floral. Sepulchral décor notwithstanding, the place has good bones, and its location on the southwest coast of Florida means there will be plenty of sunny days to enjoy a swim in the pool (which can helpfully double as refuge for youth-restoring cocooned Antareans). It's asking $1.985M.
