Martie Lieberman, Sarasota's maven of modern architecture and avowed Paul Rudolph fan, contacted us about a unique opportunity for a lover of modern architecture. A Mid-Century house designed by Ralph Twitchell, who worked with Paul Rudolph in the 1950's, is available for rent.
The home in Sarasota, Florida was designed in 1959 and is featured in the book Sarasota Modern by Andrew Weaving. This 2 bedroom/2 bath home is located near downtown Sarasota, with its excellent beaches and the Ringling Museum of Art. The house is also located smack in the middle of Sarasota's legacy of modern architecure.
To learn more about the importance of Sarasota's contribution to American architecture, you can find more information at the Sarasota Architectural Foundation.
While renting this historical home, you can take advantage of Martie's fun and informative guided architectural tours of Florida modern architecture. Half-day and full-day tours visit important examples of "Sarasota School of Architecture," mid-century modern and Florida modern sites from past to present. Her enthusiasm and knowledge makes these tours a rare treat!
Other homes for rent in and around Sarasota in the past have included Rudolph's Cocoon House and Umbrella House.
Its time to start planning your Summer vacation - so book your trip today before this gem is already rented! To reach Martie for tours or rentals which are created just for you, you can call her at 914-724-1118.
