Sarasota-Manatee 2018 Parade of Homes a shopper’s dream tour BY NICK STUBBS Times Correspondent

New home buyers eyeing the Sarasota-Manatee County area have the ideal shopping opportunity, with 116 new model homes open for touring every day of the week through March 11. It’s the Manatee-Sarasota Building Industry Association’s 2018 Parade of Homes, which is featuring models starting around $200,000 to more than $5 million. It also is showcasing communities, with 11 developments participating, and 66 specialty contractor entries by pool builders, designers and

landscapers. Models are open daily Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday noon to 5 p.m. This year’s event has much to offer, said Jon Mast, CEO of the building association. “It’s a very robust, strong parade of homes that rivals anything in the state,” said Mast. It’s a great time for builders and buyers, he said, adding that a thriving economy and housing market means lots of new construction over the two-county region. Choice is the big plus for buyers, while builders are celebrating the rebound of the housing market. “I’d say the market is back,” said Mast, noting that like many parts of the country, Sarasota-Manatee suffered during the housing crash 10 years ago. After a decade, the excess inventory of homes

during the bust has adjusted and the supply-demand balance stabilized, said Mast. Between young working families, upwardly mobile boomers and retirees attracted to the area for its beaches, parks, shopping, schools and infrastructure, the market is good, said Scott Neal, director of sales and marketing for Sam Rodgers Homes, one of the local builders displaying in the parade. “The market as a whole is doing well,” said Neal. “Traffic levels (shopping buyers) are up, though we don’t build at a feverish pace like national builders.” Instead, Rodgers focuses on lower volume and “doing its best to accommodate buyers instead of a take-it-or-leave-it,” Neal said. That means customizing.

Rodgers’ offerings in the parade include the Captiva at Greyhawk Landing in Bradenton, a 3/2.5/3 with 2,222 square feet of living area, a café and walk-in pantry. It’s priced starting at $335,600. The Bellisimo at Gran Paradiso in Venice is a 3/2/3 with 2,386 square feet of living space. One of its distinctive features is 10-foothigh walls, making the central living, dining and kitchen area “feel extravagant.” It starts at $363,774. Neal describes Greyhawk as more family oriented, with 5 miles of hiking trails, while Gran Paradiso is a mix of families and retirees and lots of amenities. The homes are important, but it is the Sarasota-Manatee See Housing, 6H

SINGING THE PRAISES OF ‘BIRD CAGES’ Nearly a dozen of the homes, designed in the mid 1900s by architect George Leonard Ely to complement Florida’s climate, still exist locally.

Scott Keeler | Times

BY SUSAN TAYLOR MARTIN Times Senior Correspondent

In the 1950s, before air conditioning came into widespread use, the new Vision-aire homes at the tip of the Pinellas peninsula were designed ‘’by Florida itself.” To take advantage of the semi-tropical setting near Tampa Bay, all living areas faced the prevailing southeast breezes. Wide overhangs provided protection from sun and rain. Concrete walls were replaced by glass and wood jalousies, adjustable to suit weather conditions and ventilation needs. “Don’t fight Florida’s climate!” urged the sales brochures. “Take the good things Florida offers.” A dozen of the houses were built along 69th Avenue S and on Pinellas Point Drive. Over time, the Vision-aire name faded in use, and they came to be known as the “bird cage houses” because of their airy design. Eleven houses have survived, and now some of the current owners hope to have them designated historic landmarks so their distinctive looks won’t be altered beyond recognition. “The reason we want to do it is that they are unique houses,” says Ananda Kelley, a bridge

engineer who has owned a bird cage home since 2013. “They are really cool, and it’s important to us they are preserved.” Kelley and others seeking landmark status for their homes are in the process of submitting applications to the city that will include descriptions of the houses and their historic significance. The owners are working with St. Petersburg Preservation, which will be the beneficiary of a fundraising “porch party” Feb. 7 that will include tours of at least two of the houses. It was architect George Leonard Ely who designed what were to be 95 Vision-aire homes in a new community called Bay Vista Park at the southern end of Fourth Street. He worked with another modernist architect, Glenn Q. Johnson, who went on to design the St. Pete Beach Library, the North Shore Aquatic Center, the Pinellas County Judicial Building and several area schools. Though the floor plans varied, all of the houses were a split-level style with the main living areas high enough above ground that the air would be 10 to 12 degrees cooler. Roofs were made of 3-1/2-inch tongueand-groove cedar, “nature’s best insulation.” Built-in closets and cabinets were kept off floor level

for ease of cleaning and to allow “passage of cool air.” In keeping with the minimalist style, there was minimal upkeep and maintenance - no paint, no plaster. Outside, “every Vision-aire house is carefully and appropriately landscaped, using proper tropical plants, flowers, shrubs and trees,” the brochure said. “Frozen gravel is a practical substitute for large areas of grass, which involve maintenance, considerable expense and labor.” Just one of the houses is currently for sale, that owned by accountant Gerry Broughman. Broughman had redone two bungalows in Historic Kenwood but often visited a friend who lived in a bird cage home. “I fell in love with the style,” he says, so he jumped when one came on the market. A previous owner had replaced the original cedar roof with a metal one. Another owner had enclosed most of the open areas, added vinyl siding and gutted the interior before losing the house to foreclosure. Broughman got it from the bank in 2009 for $55,800. “I bought basically a wreck for land value,” he says. But the house had great bones, including wonderful cantilevered ceilings. Brough-

A restored “bird cage” home at 721 Pinellas Point Drive is for sale for $425,000 in the Pinellas Point area of St. Petersburg. An effort is under way to get a historic designation for the distinctive homes.

man found a copy of the April 1956 issue of Living for Young Homemakers, which featured a bird case house in Crystal River on the cover that was nearly identical to his. He used that as a guide as he began a major renovation and restoration. “The city was great,” Broughman said of St. Petersburg building officials. “With a place like this, they could have made it hell, but they didn’t.” On the ground level, which already had a bedroom and bathroom, he enclosed a carport to expand the living area and make room for a kitchenette. Otherwise, that level looks much as it did originally, with exposed concrete block walls and hard-surface floors. The house is in a low-risk flood zone, but “if it did get flooded, all the electrical is upstairs, so you just take out the baseboards and rinse it out,” Broughman says. He got rid of a rickety deck and took off the siding that partially enclosed the two patio levels, which are connected by floating stairs. To comply with current building codes, he removed the patio railings be-

cause they had panels spaced far enough apart that a child could fall through. He replaced those with horizontal rails and a metal bar close to the floor to keep a beer bottle from rolling off and hitting someone on the head. The house originally had jalousie windows - no longer allowed by building codes - so Broughman enclosed the main living area with hurricane-resistant windows left by a prior owner. He salvaged vintage St. Charles steel drawer cabinets from another mid-century house to use in the kitchen. New cork flooring replaced the old. In total, the renovations ran well over $100,000, “though I stopped keeping track,’’ he says. “It’s not just the money, but all the time I put in.” Broughman’s next project is a 49-foot, all-wood boat on which he intends to take an “extended cruise,” as he puts it. It is now up to a longtime friend, real estate agent Eileen Bedinghaus, to sell the house, which is priced at $425,000 and offers a glimpse of Tampa Bay through the trees across the street. A bayfront park is just a block away. Bedinghaus, a fan of all

things mid-century modern, or MCM, has staged the home with ‘50s era tables, chairs, couches and accessories from the Foundry Furnishings on Burlington Avenue. Even before she put the house on the market, she got an offer from the former treasurer of St. Petersburg Preservation, who now lives in Indiana and flew down expressly to see it. Sarasota has often been touted as Florida’s mid-century mecca, but Bedinghaus notes that Pinellas County also has a wealth of MCM architecture. A main purpose of the fundraiser for the preservation group, which typically focuses on older buildings in and around downtown, is to draw greater attention to the county’s mid-century heritage. Interest in bird cage houses was so high that the event quickly sold out after a notice went up on Facebook. “We had 600 people interested,” Bedinghaus said, “and 200 tickets.” This story was originally printed in the Tampa Bay Times on 1/26/2018.

communities that are the major factor in buying decisions, said Neal. “Once they see what we offer from a community standpoint, that’s what attracts people.” Mast said the communities in the parade – whether it’s the upscale Concession in Bradenton; Lakewood Ranch, with its own Main Street shopping, dining and gathering center; the new master-planned Trevesta with expansive recreation areas in the northeast Manatee County; or Esplanade on Palmer Ranch with wellness services, fitness and outdoor recreation, are all first rate. “They’re all good, with lots of open space, parks, sidewalks and gated – even our moderately priced (communities) are gated and safe,” said Mast, who added that all of the developments are beautifully landscaped and “well connected” to local shopping, services and points of interest. Mast said buyers in the “Marvelous Middle” price bracket of around $400,000 would be hard pressed to get more for their money than among the offerings in Sarasota-Manatee. Sarah Ozgun, marketing director for Medallion Home, is looking forward to a great parade this year. Medallion has seven models on display, including the St. Thomas at Cross Creek in Parish, a 3/2/2 with 2,159 square feet of living area, a gourmet kitchen and

8-foot doors. It starts from the mid $200,000s. At the other end of the spectrum is the luxurious Santa Maria at the Inlets at Harbour Walk. With water access to the Manatee River, the home is a 3/3/3 with 2,614 square feet of living space, a breezy lanai, outdoor kitchen, pool and spa. The model is priced in the high $600,000s. Buyers can expect a high level of detail and craftsmanship in Medallion Homes, said Ozgun. “We offer a level of customization that a lot of times other builders can’t do,” she said. These days, buyers have specific needs, she noted, and among the trends are offices for work-at-home owners – sometimes twin offices. Expanded laundry rooms are another frequent request, and elaborate outdoor spaces are in, said Ozgun. Some Medallion homes include backyard waterfalls. Shoppers touring the parade of homes have something else they can look forward to, said Mast. Many of the homes feature “smart” technology, which allows owners to do things like open garage doors or turn on pool heaters from anywhere in the world via cell phone. Many of the homes will be “green,” he said, with energy-saving insulation and technologies, as well as extensive use of “sustainable” materials.

Lavish tropical landscaping is a hallmark of Medallion Homes, which is featuring seven single – and multi-family models in the Manatee-Sarasota Parade of Homes 2018.

well. Be sure to keep mulch away from the stem or trunk of your plants to avoid encouraging fungal disease. Reading a pesticide label is very important – even with organic pesticides. It lists the pests to be controlled, how to apply and how much, and precautions to take while handling and mixing the product. There are also instructions on

what to do in case of accidents. Taking time to read the label may save the life of your plant or even your own.
