Construction of this home was completed in 72, 9 hour days at a cost of 350,000, in 1929. It took 120 days to furnish and occupy. Longer than it did to build it.
The house was heated with steam radiators and all fixtures were porcelain.
The stairs above lead to a porch that is behind the wood frame you see below. the doors open into the hall or the bedroom that belonged to the lady of the house.
the view from the porches if the beautiful Sarasota Bay.
We were resting after the tour and you know who was sitting on the wall snapping photos of unsuspecting friends... the best was yet to come......LUNCH...
