Valencia is a well-curated story of a midcentury-modern home born in 1957, surviving the ravages of poor taste while maintaining its great bones and terrazzo floors. Now, in 2021, it gives the feel of an open, light contemporary design with midcentury flavors that give it personality, curiosity and welcome. Updated with white and soft khaki colors, the textures of the wood, walls and brick play off each other ever so subtly. The home sits on a rise in the land; is graphically landscaped to accentuate its asymmetrical architectural design. The interior layout flows smoothly. In the great room, the ceiling is high with beams, and the generous windows bring the outside in. The updated kitchen is cheeky and lovely, with details of the past and thoughtfully remodeled function. With countertops opening both to the den and the great room, the kitchen is the center of the flow. The den or music room has been touched by the artist's brush with murals of impressionistic scenes of Sarasota life. With a glass wall and door, the den transparently brings your eye to the back porch, which is another invitation to the restful sweet mood of times past. The backyard patio enjoys a lush cooling canopy of trees. Off the den is a charmingly cute guest bedroom with its own entrance, coffee bar and remodeled bath. Along the rear of the house are two more bedrooms and another remodeled bath. The third corner bedroom with two windows has a cozy, toasty tone and is currently used as an office/tv room. For its square footage, there are a lot of places to go and be in this home. It embraces you. Renovations began in 2018 and have been tastefully executed.
