The Historic Alfred Ringling House in Sarasota, Florida, Has Been Listed for $1.499 Million
Historic Ringling House
SARASOTA, Fla. – March 30, 2022 – PRLog — One of the most historic homes on the Florida Gulf Coast, the original Ringling house built between 1918 and 1920 for Alfred Ringling, has just come on the market after an extensive two-year renovation.
Listed by John and Christina McNaught of the McNaught Group at Vacasa Real Estate LLC, the property is located in southern Manatee County at 7715 Westmoreland Drive near the Ringling Museum and is being offered for $1.499 million by owner Sherri Coble, President of Coble Enterprises.
“It is honor to help this spectacular home find a new owner who truly appreciates its history,” said listing agent John McNaught.
With almost 4,700 square feet of living space, five bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, and expansive pool deck, this house is unlike any other on the market. The palatial country home was built on 218 bayfront acres for Alfred Ringling, the middle brother of the seven Ringling brothers.
Alfred died before the home was completed, leaving his widow, Elizabeth, and son, Richard, to finish it. Richard and his wife were said to have entertained lavishly in the home until 1924, when he sold the entire 218 acres to the developers of Whitfield Estates. The placement of the house conflicted with the Whitfield Estates proposed street and lot layout, so the house was later moved a short distance to its current location.
The house is known as the original Ringling house because even though circus magnate brothers John and Charles Ringling already had winter homes on Sarasota Bay, they did not build their palatial homes until around six years later.
With classical columns and a gabled second floor, the home has been described as a 19th-century Southern coastal plantation home. The inside of the home, however, is much more resplendent. The two-story main room, originally used as a ballroom, sets the tone of grandeur with Venetian columns, Renaissance-style coffered ceiling, eight sets of French doors, and a second-floor mezzanine with 18th-century English balustrade, which overlooks the room on three sides. The original Dade County Pine hardwood floors have been fully restored and the original porcelain door knobs remain intact.
New replacements in the recent renovation include the roof, hurricane shutters and fabrics, chandeliers and light fixtures, composite deck, five air conditioners, pool pump, landscaping and irrigation system, indoor and outdoor paint, all kitchen appliances, and all new electrical, water lines and sewer lines.
Until recently, a two-bedroom guest house existed on the northeast corner of the property. However, it was removed as part of the renovation effort after concerns about its structural integrity. The property appraiser still lists the land use as two or more houses and according to the building department, the guest house can be rebuilt.

Sober St. Patrick’s Day
NEW YORK – March 29, 2022 – PRLog — Sober St. Patrick’s Day Founder and Grand Marshal Bill Reilly is “over the moon” in 2022 and credits his team, board of directors, community, and 2022 Emerald Spirit Honoree for this year’s success.
William Cope Moyers escorted Mr. Reilly on 5th Avenue, gave a moving acceptance speech on behalf on Betty Hazelden Ford and the recovery community, and penned a stirring “Recovery on Parade” blog post about the day, he said: “Recovery was on parade up Fifth Avenue on St. Pat’s Day and for me, professionally and personally, it was a milepost in my long journey that I will remember and cherish along the rest of my way.”
Co-host Samantha Kelly made the trip to NYC to meet her Sober St. Patrick’s Day family and friends and march in the storied parade. She beamed, “Marching with Sober St.Patricks day was a dream come true! The nicest experience for me was strangers in the crowd who lit up when they saw us and shouted to us how many years sober THEY were and how happy they were to see us. I can see this event getting bigger and bigger every year. Well done to everyone involved.”
Treasurer, co-host and emcee Jim Frawley flexed his speaker skills and enthusiastically delivered the #ReclaimtheDay message. “It’s refreshing to be part of a St. Patrick’s Day experience that highlights the best of what Ireland and Irish America has to offer, without the distraction of the binge drinking and excess which many people associate with the day,” he explained.
Tami Ellen McLaughlin, who was Mr. Reilly’s guest at the 2015 Sober St. Patrick’s Day event, joined as executive director in 2020. And in 2022 she accepted a Proclamation from Matthew McMorrow, Constituency Relations, on behalf of Governor Kathy Hochul. “Amazing work — and now state recognition— happens here in Little Italy!” explained Ms. McLaughlin. “I am proud to be a part of this nonprofit that advocates for healthy St Patrick’s Day celebrations and in honor of our heritage works hard to counter the negative stereotypes about Irish and Irish America.”
