Description of 1956 ROSE STREET, SARASOTA, FL 34239

PRICE IMPROVEMENT!! Uniquely historical home on a fabulous West of the Trail Flower street lot. Perfect central location near dining, shopping, and A rated Southside Elementary School. Build your new home, or refurbish the extremely rare all metal home that currently exists. It is the only surviving "Lustron" home in Sarasota and we've been told that it's one of only six in the country. A "Lustron" is essentially a "kit house" that was manufactured in the late 1940's for soldiers returning from WWII. It is essentially, fireproof, and termite proof. This particular model is known as the Westchester and features a zig-zag column that is the signature feature of Lustron homes. Renovate and use as a rental or vacation home in the middle of all that Sarasota has to offer. Nestled on a .20 acre lot that faces due North in a highly sought-after neighborhood located only a few blocks from the water, minutes to downtown, Siesta Key Beach, and the newly renovated Southgate Mall and Cinebistro. Please note: the Lustron home is not historically protected and may be torn down without penalty.
