Description

This 1926 Mediterranean Revival home was built in the same era as John & Mable Ringling’s mansion, the Ca d’Zan, in 1926. With its Ca d’Zan look and feel, and its situation on three lots amounting to 2/3 of an acre, you will feel as though you’ve stepped back in time and are part of Sarasota royalty. It was built over three lots, in an enclave of historic homes once known as Ravellan Gardens, now known as Whitfield Estates, and is located West of the Trail in sunny Sarasota, FL. It is convenient to the Ringing Art Museum, the Asolo Theatre, New College, and The Ringling School of Art & Design. It’s also just a short drive to Downtown Sarasota and to the gorgeous white beaches we are renowned for on the Gulf Coast. With its Ca d’Zan look and feel, and its situation on three lots amounting to 2/3 of an acre, you will feel as though you’ve stepped back in time and are part of Sarasota royalty.

The 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home retains the charm and details that homes of this era were known for: stucco exterior, barrel-tile roof, a wood-burning fireplace breasted with quarry tile and decorative rosettes on the hearth, black strap iron lighting fixtures, and a built-in wood server in the dining room.  It has the original quarry tile throughout the downstairs, and original heart pine hardwood floors upstairs. A wonderful update is the the windows, which were updated to be impact resistant, and were custom-built to fit in with the historic aesthetic of the home.

The backyard is very private, and there is plenty of room to add a pool and a guest house. Those who appreciate spending time outdoors will be delighted by the majestic banyans, seagrape, cuban laurels, carambola, and ginger. An impressive driveway leads to a detached garage in the back, currently being used as a workshop, as well as 2 carports and a storage shed.

This home achieved recognition in the National Register of Historic Places in 1993. However, while the Historic designation is a coveted badge of honor, there are no limits to what one can do with this home. One could keep it historic in character and be a docent of Sarasota history, or renovate in any way they choose, as it has a very desirable flood zone categorization of X that has no restrictions. There are so many opportunities with such a beautiful and large property!
