Sarasota's West Coast Symphony was said to be founded in the Cohen House music and conversation pit, designed for this purpose. Many feel the Cohen House is Sarasota's best Rudolph. (Sold by Martie Lieberman in 2004.)

Fascia, exterior overhangs and delicate posts repaired, replaced appropriately. All new screen porch off living room pit with appropriate doors, trim and screen details. Cohen's original dropped covered walkway between house and carport (Yeah, baby!) being rebuilt to Rudolph's design. Complete exterior paint with appropriate historic color. Landscaping and exterior lighting designed, installed, beautiful. Seawalls strengthened, roof updated + warranted. Kitchen counters, refrigerator and insensitive additions removed and replaced. SEE PHOTOS.

This house is a labor of love. The Vross Family and Jonathan Parks recently won a 2005 Historic Preservation Award from the National Trust for Cohen House interior work done up to 2001, while Parks was working for Seibert Architects. Parks now has his license and his own firm.
