I am a Sarasota School of Architecture home on the water – both of which are pleasurable for any home owner in the 1950s. The St. Augustine grass plugs and palm tree had just been planted by Pearson, Conrad, Nobel and Howell Landscapers. These were the days before air-conditioning so my occupants relied on the gulf breezes to keep cool at night. My architecture was well suited for this. Your task is to name my location; Where am I?
