Our mid-mod vacation rental

Postby Connie » Sat Dec 20, 2008 10:29 am

This year we rented a part of an oceanfront house that was built as a single family home in 1961 (by Jacksonville architect: Taylor Hardwick). It was converted into three condos in 1979. We mostly rented it because of the architecture, and today the owner, knowing this, provided us with original photos of the property which was also published in the January 1963 edition of a magazine called “Town & Countryâ€￾.

And, lastly, this is a part of the article in Town & Country, with the house plans:

I hope you enjoy the photos as much as we enjoy staying here.
