About 7211 Broughton Street

(Note: This home was recently featured in The New York Times. The article is attached to this listing.) The iconic Sarasota architect Ralph Spencer Twitchell came from New York to Sarasota in the 1920s. His job was to oversee the completion of the construction of the home of John Ringling. That home is now a museum just a short distance south of several Broughton Street homes Twitchell designed and built circa 1929. Splendid and unique examples of Mediterranean Revival architecture, these homes are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Such a listing typically increases the property value. 7211 Broughton Street has been meticulously maintained by its current residents. Their understanding of the timeless design by Twitchell is evident in their own interior and exterior choices. The property offers a main home of two or three bedrooms, and two and one-half baths as well as a turnkey furnished one-bedroom and one-bath guest home. There are fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom suite (a merging of two bedrooms easily reversed). Rooms on the second floor and an exterior deck provide limited water views of the nearby canal and the deeded boat slip included with this two-thirds of an acre property with perfect plantings and elegant nighttime lighting. The extraordinary kitchen with solid walnut cabinetry, brass fittings, honed marble surfaces, and top-line appliances serves indoor and shaded outdoor dining areas. There is a dipping pool (6 foot plus depth) behind the main home and room for a larger one alongside the one-bedroom and bath guest home with its own private sunning patio. With frontage on two streets (Broughton and Holly Circle), there is ample covered and onsite open resident and guest parking as well as on-street parking. This is architectural history pristinely preserved; an estate ready for its next discerning occupants. Showings are by appointment (see instructions below). Some listing information is taken from public records and should be verified by interested parties. Note that the flood zone is X500. This home has endured the extremes in Florida weather for nearly 100 years, and it was a safe haven in the most recent storm, Idalia.
