This beautifully preserved midcentury modern home in Sarasota, Florida was designed by Jack West, a leader of the Sarasota School of Architecture, of which Paul Rudolph was a part, and which is known for a style that responded to the region’s climate and vernacular architecture.

First designed in 1952 then expanded in 2001 (also by West), the 3,323-square-foot four-bedroom features characteristics of the Sarasota Modern movement including Ocala block construction, walls of sliding glass doors that open up to the outdoors, a skylit, step-down dining area separated from the living room by glass accordion doors, and a floating staircase. Floors are tiled, and bedrooms have in-wall storage

Outside, a private courtyard pool, fountain, and seating provide ample space for further entertaining. Located at 1833 North Shore Drive in the Oyster Bay Estates, it’s asking $1,395,000. Take a look below.
