The Hudson House, 1953, Ralph Twitchell, Sarasota School of Architecture Beach House on Venice Island

616 Valencia Rd, Venice, FL 34285, USA
$839,000

Description

Here is the one you’ve been waiting for…a spectacular mid century modern beach house on Venice Island, designed by world-renowned Sarasota School Architect Ralph Twitchell in 1953. The Hudson House, constructed of Ocala block in a ‘stacked bond’ pattern, has been featured in Andrew Weaving’s stunning book, Sarasota Modern and frequently highlighted on architectural tours. Not just a house, this home is an experience: sliding glass walls lead to private tropical courtyards, while screened panels offer the cool beach breeze. The playful connection with sunlight and the natural world can be enjoyed from every room, and just 7 houses away is the beach of the Gulf of Mexico.  Meticulously maintained, the house offers two master bedrooms each with their own ensuite, the larger of which also has a bonus room with a closet which can be used as an office, studio or nursery. Nestled in a quiet, walkable neighborhood of tall tree canopy, you are only a few blocks from the farmers’ market, sidewalk cafes and shops of historic downtown Venice, designed by Master Planner and Landscape Architect John Nolen in the early 1920s. The HVAC system was replaced in 2018, the roof recoated in 2019, and the block sealed in the Spring of 2020. Original plans and a survey are available.
