Cherokee Park West

This 1920’s-inspired residence sits in Cherokee Park, one of the oldest, most established residential neighborhoods in Sarasota, Florida. Most of the homes were built in the 1920’s, and the architects designed this residence to blend in with the traditional feel of the neighborhood. While a sense of classicism guided the architects’ overarching designs, it was simultaneously balanced with a more modern appreciation for simplicity, precision, and geometry. This blend is harmoniously expressed through elements such as the entry court (a 1920’s-inspired feature), the sophisticated black and white color scheme, and a procession of arched doorways and demure balconies. Even the garage deserves mentioning, as well as praise for its placement. With the garage doors off to the side, any potential eyesore is adverted - even while it is adorned with elegant lanterns.
The concept for the outdoors was to extend the interior architecture by creating a series of intimate exterior spaces within an elegant, unified area. As the courtyard architecture pulls the outdoors in, the landscape extends the interior and mirrors the architecture in style and function. Noteworthy features include a moon garden, mosaic pool, spacious outdoor area, and tall, expansive windows. The result is a graceful home that evokes a sense of grandeur and a nobler time.
