Designed in 1957 by Victor Lundy, 25 South Osprey is not just a piece of the Sarasota School of Architecture movement but also the new location of Murray Homes and Murray Realty. Careful renovation by Murray Homes keeps continues the Sarasota Modern legacy, and brings the past into the present in a meaningful way.
Originally built for Joe Barth Insurance Office, Victor Lundy differentiated himself from other designers at the time by utilizing sharp angles. A benefit to maximize widow exposure for street traffic, a uniquely commercial benefit. Victor Lundy used a concept of expressing the structural load-bearing design for a modern, industrial appearance that maintains an open lightweight appearance.
Renovated in 2013 by Sarasota Luxury Home Builder, Murray Homes, owner Steve Murry restored and enhanced the original vision of the architect, by adhering to the original color scheme and contemporary fixtures.
The building is also home to waterfront real estate specialist Murray Realty.
