It’s a holiday let – and holiday lets don’t come much more stylish than this. Leedy designed this in 1954, with the current owner lovingly restoring the house to its former glory, packing it with some midcentury classics along the way. Yes, you can live the dream – even if it is for days, rather than years.

The house has two separate wings divided by a pool and hot tub, a design very much out of the Sarasota School of Architecture, which produced designs ideally suited to the warm Florida climate. There’s also three double bedrooms, three bathrooms,a large reception room, office / den, kitchen, dining room, laundry room and a double garage outside. Plenty of space for a group of you in fact. Suddenly that price seems a little more realistic.
