Jack West & Elizabeth Waters

The Round House, 1960

4433 Riverwood Avenue Sarasota FL 34231 USA


One of Florida’s very best examples of mid-century architecture is a Sarasota School of Architecture icon, the Round House. Originally an Art Studio designed for American painters Dorothy & Hilton Leech by architects Jack West & Elizabeth Boylston Waters in 1960 it has been beautifully restored and updated by contemporary Sarasota architect Tatiana White, AIA. This private compound includes three lots, the house and its extensive grounds, heated pool and lovely gardens are on two of the lots. The third lot is vacant and buildable as a separate property, or an excellent opportunity to build an important architectural gem within the compound for extended family, guests, motorcars, etc. The current owner uses the well-groomed third lot for privacy and as parking for events at the property. One of Sarasota’s 10 Most Beautiful Homes according to Sarasota Magazine. This property is not in a flood zone.
