Single Family Home, Contemporary - ST PETERSBURG, FL
A RARE ORIGINAL mid century masterpiece. This one level light-filled home with separate yet attached design studio plus an in-law suite, sits quietly on 4 lots & is "one of the best kept secrets of modern architecture in Tampa Bay". Designed to open up to the sky & stars from the interior it ushers in natural light throughout the home. High ceilings, terrazzo floors, brick details, mid-century style lighting & built-in seating(w/"hair pin legs) plus storage details, a wonderful 50's kitchen, an outdoor/ indoor water feature, soaring screened patio(dine al-fresco even when it storms)are some of the features of this home with 2 separate garages(studio/workshop/exercise/yoga). The interplay of materials & shapes, some tall concertina interior doors, terrazzo, glass, veneer, tile, stone, brick, steel & block enhance this home of the modern movement. The current owners commitment to maintaining this design rather than revising the vision of the renowned architect is evident throughout. Designed to integrate & engage with nature (towering palm & pines, tropical plantings & secret pathways), Jan Reiner built the home for himself(a protege of Le Corbusier & Gropius in Paris, author, & lecturer) He is considered as one of the important mid-century designers of the 50's and 60's. Current owners (lighting designer & engineer) are the 2nd owners of this home. Located within 10 minutes of the beaches & also downtown St Pete, & close to shopping, bike trails & coffee shops. This is a TRUE & RARE Mid Century gem.
