From the agent:  "Here’s a rare opportunity to own the famed Butterfly House in the coveted Lake Park community. The residence is named for its dramatic inverted roofline. This midcentury-modern gem is replete with thoughtful elements and a distinct aesthetic that blends beauty and function. The entryway welcomes guests into a spectacular art gallery. Designed with intention by architect Andrea Clark Brown and rebuilt by Connor & Gaskins Unlimited, the utmost attention has been given to every detail."

The original client for this three-bed, three-bath home in the Lake Park neighborhood of Naples, Florida, was an art collector. After she purchased the 1960s Butterfly House, she tapped architect Andrea Clark Brown for renovations. Though the termite-infested residence would need to be torn down, the redesign stays true to the midcentury spirit while providing plenty of gallery space.

The living room is spacious enough to host a workspace.

Here, the slant of the roof is most pronounced, with clerestory windows ushering light into the open space.

A galley kitchen with plenty of streamlined cabinetry features a skylight and a cutaway in the back wall that opens the space to views of the backyard.

Folding doors connect the dining area with an outdoor living space complete with a fireplace.

The back patio features a pool, and continues on to a grassy area that meets the shore of the neighborhood lake.

The principal bedroom opens onto a private courtyard.

The oversize folding doors create an indoor/outdoor shower and tub experience.

The property also includes a two-bedroom, one-bath guesthouse with views of the water. 

The home’s distinctive butterfly roof gives it serious curb appeal.
