This is where it all started. My very first house in Sarasota. This is where I fell in love with the town – and its real estate. Right here at 2012 N. Huntington Ave. My brother bought it around 1980, then I took it over, then my folks moved in and remodeled it in 1988. (Architect Rick Garfinkel did the design.) They lived here until they moved to the Sarasota Bay Club in 2001. This, more than any place in Sarasota, is Home.
2012 N. Huntington Ave.
It’s just come on the market again, and let me first emphasize that I have absolutely no financial interest in it. But I do have a great emotional interest. It is first and foremost my mother’s house. It completely expresses her personality and style. She lived all over the world, usually in very grand houses, and when she and my father retired to Sarasota, they – and especially she – knew exactly what they wanted. It’s a very grand house on a very small scale.
