While we’re still on a bit of a Mid Century Modern jag here at Retro Roadmap I wanted to give my dear readers in the Sarasota Florida area a heads up on a modern home tour this Sunday, to benefit to Benefit Habitat for Humanity Sarasota, Inc.

Mod Realtor Martie Lieberman of  Modern Sarasota and I exchanged a couple of notes when I admitted to being smitten with a mod bungalow down in Venice (not that we can afford a Retro Vacation Location, but a gal can dream!) Martie specializes in Mid Century Modern and Current Century Modern homes in the Sarasota area, and also runs guided tours of Florida modern and mid-century architecture.

I am intrigued by the house above, known as the Rupp-Siebert House which Martie informs me

…is a 1960 house designed by William Rupp, who used to run Paul Rudolph’s office. The Rupp Seibert has gone through a number of mutations and was completely renovated and restored back to its original intent by Seibert Architects.  It is an authentic Sarasota School of Architecture mid-century modern architecture.”

The Rupp Seibert house will be open for this tour, so if your interested in mid-century mod architecture of the Sarasota School, check out Sunday’s tour!

Here’s a link to the official invite, and if you do go, tell ’em Retro Roadmap sent you!

Now that you’ve got that slightly off-kilter ditty running through your head like I do, let’s see what awaits behind the door with a giant spoon handle, shall we?
