This vintage Sarasota modern home was in dilapidated condition when the clients first purchased it as a winter haven. Former owners began restoration but could not complete the effort due to financial problems. The new owners hired landscape architect, David Young of DWY Landscape Architects, to assess the site and create a fresh contemporary landscape. "When we started there was a privacy wall with a gate, but what was missing was a way to screen the motor court and carport from the entry. The biggest problem was visitors entered through the carport door that opened onto the kitchen!"
