Recently renovated, this 1956 residence in Fort Myers, Florida, was designed by architect Ralph Spencer Twitchell, one of the founding members of the Sarasota School of Architecture. Measuring 2,377 square feet, the home features three bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, and direct canal access.
Thick vegetation bordering the perimeter of the property creates a lush, secluded setting for the midcentury, which was treated to a top-down renovation in 2018. French Oak hardwood floors were incorporated throughout the interior, as well as new hurricane-impact windows and doors. The roof was also replaced, along with all of the light fixtures and the dual-zone air conditioning systems.
Now, a bright, open floor plan allows the main living spaces to seamlessly merge, catering to easy entertaining. Sliding glass doors in the living and dining areas open to an expansive rear patio, blurring the lines between inside and out. The spacious kitchen is located just steps away, featuring a striking suite of Bosch stainless-steel appliances.
The three bedrooms are nestled in a separate wing of the home, ensuring plenty of privacy. Also included in the residence are two spacious storage rooms, as well as storm-safe underground utilities. Keep scrolling to see more of the property, currently on the market for $799,500.
