The Weaving House

Lake Hollingsworth, Lakeland, Florida, USA

UNDERSTATED MODERNIST BEAUTY

The Weaving House is on one hand a perfectly restored and curated example of Modernist architecture, but on the other it’s simply a fab place to be on holiday. Beautifully preserved it feels like a set from Mad Men, but it’s practical, airy, sun filled spaces make it an ideal place to chill – ideally whilst sipping a martini by the pool – or to use as a base for exploring this area.

Location

Near the stunning Lake Hollingsworth, one of over 38 lakes dotted around the city of Lakeland. There’s nature trails nearby for hiking, plus the gems of the city, including the biggest cluster of Frank Lloyd Wright designed buildings on the Campus of nearby Florida Southern College.  With its subtropical climate this part of the world is a good all year round destination, and the Weaving House designed to deal with the most humid of days.

Tampa and Orlando are equidistant at about an hour. Just over an hour the beautiful beaches of St Petersburg and Clearwater make a nice alternative to Orlando (about four hours) and has a huge Pride every June.

About The Owners

Owned with his partner Ian, the Weaving House has been curated by London-based Modernist writer and dealer Andrew Weaving. The house reflects their passion for the period and the details of the interiors are designed to capture the flavor of the 1950s, but without compromising on the modern cons you expect from a villa rental. They and their son love the relaxed vibe of Lakeland and the family also owns Maison Centrale in Ferrals-les-Corbières, France.

  • The sheer retro glamour of this house. With sliding partitions, huge picture windows and stunning open space it provides the ultimate in relaxed Florida vacation’ing
  • The stylish pool provides a welcome relief from the Florida heat as well as a perfect backdrop for al fresco eating (and cocktail parties…).
  • Heading off to walk around beautiful Lake Hollingsworth, taking in the copious birdlife. There are also plenty of cycle routes nearby.
  • Lakeland is relatively unknown and lets you live like a local, with great markets, bars and places to eat nearby, without being in the midst of the nearby tourist meccas

  • Sleeps four in two double rooms, with two bathrooms
  • Open plan living space with open fire
  • The house has air con and wifi throughout
  • Well fitted kitchen – all in keeping with the 1950s theme, but up to date
  • Beautiful pool surrounded by landscaped tropical gardens
