Location: Sarasota, Florida
Another day, another midcentury modern home waiting to be snatched up—not that we’re complaining, of course. The latest entrant onto the market is this beauty by William Rupp, a modernist architect who worked with Paul Rudolph and ran his Sarasota, Florida practice before starting his own studio. As a member of the Sarasota School of Architecture, Rupp subscribed to the tenets of the movement, and this 1957-built residence certainly reflects them.
Although the 2,691-square-foot house has been renovated and updated since then by Seibert Architects, whose founder, Edward J. “Tim” Seibert was also a member of the Sarasota School, the three-bed-three-bath boasts the horizontal planes, floor-to-ceiling windows, dynamic open floor plan, and flat, floating roof that were emblematic of the style.
Set behind a wooden wall, the single-level is accessed through glossy red double-doors, which lead to the home’s main glass entrance and its fresh, all-white interiors. The living room’s extensive glazing looks out onto the black river stone lap pool and a yard landscaped with specimen trees. The master suite is encased by three walls of glass, while the office and second bedroom also feature significant glazing, establishing a home that treasures its environment and privileges indoor-outdoor living. Located at 1155 Center Place, the home is listed for $2,200,000.
