10th and Cocoanut Ave, Sarasota, USA
Price on request
By the early 1980s, American artist John Chamberlain was already becoming famous for his crushed metal sculptures but he needed a studio space to take him to the next level. This 18,000 sq ft warehouse in downtown Sarasota, Florida, was just the ticket.
Several years after buying the warehouse, Chamberlain commissioned local architect Yehuda Inbar to design a two-storey clapboard house for him on its adjacent plot, but both have been shuttered for several years following his relocation to New York shortly before his death in 2011.
Now the warehouse, offices, a garden and the home are all for sale. More of a ‘fixer upper’ than a ‘move-in-ready’, the property will make up for what it lacks in beauty with its cultural significance. (And damp, too, which you’ll probably want to get looked at…)
