801 Idlewild Way

A treasure such as this rarely becomes available for sale. For those who savor midcentury modern design, this offering is exceptional. Designed in 1963 by famed architect, Tim Seibert, who was among the original movement that came to be known as the Sarasota School of Architecture. Combined with deep boating water on the island of Siesta Key, near the white quartz sands of Siesta Beach on the Gulf of Mexico, this home is truly special. Reflective of a time when life was less cluttered; the clean lines and open spaces invite the outdoors in through walls of glass. You are welcomed into the large foyer and will be immediately drawn to the expansive outdoor pool area, an extension of the home’s living space. Offered for sale by the second owner, this home was originally designed by Mr. Seibert as a winter retreat for his northern executive client; the original raised-seal building plans are offered with the sale. The current owner expanded the home, maintaining the integrity of the original design. Featuring a living and dining room with original Seibert Japanese privacy screens and original terrazzo floors which are repeated throughout the home, a kitchen with a sliding privacy screen wall and a private outdoor courtyard. The ensuite master bedroom offers original terrazzo floors and a sitting room with views of the pool and waterway. Additional areas include a guest room with a sitting room, 1.5 baths, den, bonus room, office/workspace and laundry. The unique 40’ pool and pool deck encompass approximately 2,000 sq. ft. of screened outdoor area and overlooks 184’ of curved waterfront on an oversized, tropically landscaped lot. Boat dock, 10,000 lb. boat/kayak lift with water and electric. Oversized driveway, 2-car carport. Located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the waterfront community of Siesta Isles. Near quaint Siesta Village’s shops and eateries and only 15 minutes to downtown Sarasota’s shopping, restaurants, entertainment, cultural amenities. Virtual video tour
