This midcentury atomic-style round house is now for sale in Sarasota

A home fit for George Jetson is now on the market on the Gulf Coast.

Located at 3201 Peachtree St, in Sarasota, this perfectly round midcentury gem was built in 1971 by electric engineer Frank Williams, and is known locally as "The Other Round House.

The more well-known round house is the nearby home of artists Dorothy and Hilton Leech , which designed by Sarasota School of Architecture partners Jack West and Elizabeth Boylston Waters.
However, this 1,268-square-foot home is just as impressive.

The three bedroom, one bathroom home was completely renovated by the current owner, who purchased it in 2018 for $229,000, according to property records, and brought it back to its full atomic-style glory.

“It’s been a labor of love,” said owner Sue Tapia of White Sands Realty Group to Global and Mail. “I hope somebody can take it to the next level and appreciate the hard work that was put into it; and I will never drive by this house again, because I don’t want to see it for the better or for the worse.”

The concrete-block home still features the original Maltese patterned breeze block privacy wall, a kidney bean vanity, vintage appliances, and more. But the real bell of the ball is the oversized bathroom, which sits at the heart of the home, and features a massive tub and shower, and a backlit round mirror.

The current asking price $899,000.
