The home of preeminent Florida architect Sanford Goldman is now for sale


The home of local preeminent architect Sanford Goldman is now for sale in St. Petersburg. Goldman, an apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright, is responsible for the Hernando County government center, numerous schools throughout Florida, and quite a few impressive mid-century modern homes in the Tampa Bay area, including this one.

Asking $1,100,000, the 3,114 square-foot home is located at 227 Colony Point Rd. in St. Petersburg, and comes with four bedrooms and four bathrooms. It also features 145-feet of waterfront, a courtyard with a fountain, a sailboat dock, raised decks, a vaulted ceiling in the master bedroom, two fireplaces, a mother-in-law suite, and stunning views of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. 

Goldman studied under Wright for two years in the late 1950s at the Taliesin fellowship in Wisconsin, and practiced architecture in Tampa Bay for over 50 years. In that time, Goldman was known for his skill at "blurring the lines between exterior and interior," and his use of glass walls and courtyards.

Just last year, Goldman, who is now in his last 80s, received a proclamation for his accomplished career and contributions to mid-century modern architecture from St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman.

The listing agent is Moe Mossa of Savvy Avenue.
