Cross over a historic swing bridge into the serenity of private North Casey Key. Here, in this tranquil community nestled along a winding island road, is a rare opportunity to own a slice of paradise not on the market for 40 years. The custom-built, Key West styled residence lays a short distance from the exclusive Casey Key beach. Come home to collect sand dollars and shark teeth, fish from your backyard and absorb pristine Gulf-front views. An intelligent, elevated coastal design centers a modern floor plan around a soaring vaulted great room. Four bedrooms plus a loft allows ample space for guests and family retreats. Walls of windows with transom details and doors open onto an expansive deck, where the wide-open views of the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico steal your breath away. Recent upgrades include new paint inside and out, a new metal roof in 2016, 2 new AC units in 2018, updated LED lighting and on a practical note, the home has electric roll down shutters for peace of mind. The lower level garage accommodates five to six vehicles. Remember, you can own a home anywhere, but there is a limited number of opportunities to live on North Casey Key Road. Balance, privacy and proximity with nearby Sarasota, Venice, Pine View School, Legacy Trail, shopping, dining and I-75 from the tranquility of an island retreat.
