A preservationist in all ways ,I spent 1 and a half years rehabbing the Manor , bringing it back to its original glory.The house then was listed on the Historic register in Sarasota County..Being an artist ,the Manor was a perfect canvas for my passion..I lived in the home for 8 years,then having the opportunity to save another historic home I now enjoy my guests enjoying the Manor and gardens.
