Private Residence
*Included in Lido Shores Self-Guided “Gulf & Gardens” Tour

Explore one of the largest residential properties on the Gulf Coast of Florida encompassing more than 5 acres of grounds with a one-third mile walking path encircling the property.  Landscape Architect Richard Anderson created the path to link a series of different “garden rooms” to be experienced as you stroll around the grounds. 

The Butterfield House
Carl Abbott
*Included in “Carl by Car” Self-Guided Driving – South Tour
This residence pays homage to its neighbor across the bayou, Ralph Twitchell and Paul Rudolph’s “Cocoon House” (1950), by orienting the building and extending the linear pool out towards the historic structure. A generous outdoor space ingeniously solves the requirement to protect the structure from flooding and provides the large outdoor Great Room the clients requested for their love of outdoor living.
