A rare mid-century modern 'Vision-Aire' home is on sale in St. Petersburg right now

Built in 1954, this two-story "Vision-Aire" home in St. Petersburg is just one of 13 designed by prominent architect Glenn Q. Johnson, and is currently on the market for $720,000. Located in the Pinellas Point area at 780 69th Ave S, the 4 bedroom and 3 and half bath work of art was designed specifically for the climate on the Pinellas Peninsula, and was built with insect-resistant cedar, cypress and redwood. The home sits on a near half acre facing Lake Flori, named after Johnson's first wife, and features a pool, an artist studio,  a remodeled kitchen, updated windows and air conditioning, as well as solar panels.

An open house for the home is scheduled for March 14.
