Constructed in 1929 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places (Whitfield Estates--Broughton Street Historic District) this Mediterranean Revival home was designed and developed by Ralph Spencer Twitchell, considered the leader of the Sarasota School of Architecture, who acquired several building sites he called Ravellan Gardens when his first local assignment was to supervise the completion of John Ringling's Ca' d'Zan, now part of the nearby Ringling Museum. Acquired in 2015 by a former owner, a meticulous restoration began including the addition of a spacious first-floor master bedroom and bathroom, and was continued by the current owner. (Please note that photos in this listing are from 2020 and the window curtains in the master bedroom, a direct match to the bed headboard, are included in the sale of the home. The dining room table and chairs, also appearing in the photos, are included in the sale.) The pecky cypress initially used in the interior is present, and updating required throughout the home is of high caliber and consistent with the original design. Since 2020, the current owner has replaced the roof and multiple air-conditioning systems. The pool area has been resurfaced, and a pool heater has been added. Electricity has been updated and specific plumbing lines have been relined. NOTE: There is a detached guest apartment of 528 square feet which offers a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom, and bath. The square footage of the guest apartment and the number of bedrooms and baths therein are included in the listing totals. This property, with frontage on Broughton Street, also has access to and from Holly Circle. There is not an HOA but a community association; membership is voluntary. This home is located in an X500 flood zone, has endured all aspects of Florida weather for nearly 100 years, and was a safe haven for its current owner during the most recent seasonal storms.
