Originally marketed as Vision-Aire Homes, this is one of 13 homes which were inspired by homes the architect, Glenn Q. Johnson, had seen in the Philippines during a tour in WWII and designed specifically for the climate on the Pinellas Peninsula. This two-story/split-level home has thick concrete floors (even on upper stories). Lower levels are constructed of concrete block for added cooling, & upper levels are steel frames clad with insect-resistant cedar, cypress & redwood. Hallways usually have walls, however, this home's interior walls were constructed as wooden jalousies, allowing cool breezes to flow through the entire house. South-facing facades have large overhangs with one- and two-story covered screen balconies and lanais -providing extensive outdoor living space. Since its original construction, the current owners have updated some elements including: remodeled kitchen; updated windows; air conditioning; solar panels; and an artists studio, (and much more) to better suit their needs. Owning a Vision-Aire home is an experience and, to quote the owners "Life in a Vision-Aire home is comfortable and inspiring. Walls of windows give way to the out of doors. Simple, linear, in-ornate wooden walls and ceilings surround one with a cozy, organic feeling." All of this overlooking lovely "Lake Flori" (named for Johnson's first wife). These homes are rarely presented for sale. Don't miss your chance to own not just a home, a living, breathing work of art. Private showings to qualified buyers only please.
