A home designed by famed architect Don Chapell as his personal residence and studio is now on the market in Sarasota's Lido Shores.
Located at 150 Morningside Drive
, the 6,843-square-foot property sits on a waterfront lot, which was purchased by Chapell in 1983 for $138,000. A decade later construction of the home began, and it was finished in 2000, just six months after Chapell suddenly died at the age of 55.
According to the Herald-Tribune
, the house was completed by his wife, Heather, along with help from contractor Pat Ball and interior designer Wilson Stiles.
“So much of it was in Don’s head,” said Stiles to the publication. “It’s an exceptional house. It’s Don’s best work and one of the most important houses in Florida.”
As part of the Sarasota School of Architecture, Chapell was well-known for many of the “New Modern”-style homes in the area, as well as homes in places like Texas and along the beaches of the Hamptons in New York.
The Sarasota School of Architecture calls his Lido residence his "masterpiece
," and it's easy to see why.
The curvy, pastel-colored home sits along the Pansy Bayou wildlife refuge, and has two master suites, a library, a children's wing, a lap pool, maple and stone floors, 20-foot ceilings, a three-car garage, and more.
The home, which has only been on the market one other time, is currently tagged with an asking price of $10 million. The listing agents are Lisa Morris and Amy Drake of Premier Sotheby's.
