Welcome to "Casa sur la Baie" with perhaps the most spectacular intracoastal waterway views on Casey Key, the best-kept secret on Florida’s west coast near Sarasota. The residence sits 220 feet from the road on this 8-mile barrier island and is secluded on a peninsula with canals on both sides, separating the property from neighboring lands. The island is noted for its low density and conservation measures to prevent high rise development. Here you will find an eclectic mix of both manicured estates as well as Old Florida ambiance, offering the ultimate relaxed lifestyle to calm the soul. The approach...is through a gated entry, down the long pavered driveway circling to the winding staircase where you enter the residence on the north side of the property. The main living area--sitting high at 16+ feet elevation--offers sweeping 270-degree vistas from the wrap-around terraces, creating an experience as if you are perched on a ship’s bow watching other yachts go by. Renovated in 2007, the 4,000-plus square foot home has a casual elegance and is intentionally designed to offer spaces for gathering family and friends, as well as private spaces. With three ensuite bedrooms, an office, studio, living room, family room opening to the dining room, gourmet kitchen with Wolf/Subzero appliances, the master suite includes a sitting area used as an additional office, and amazing closet space. The gardens are lush with native plants attracting butterflies, a fig tree that produces a healthy harvest each year, as well as night blooming cereus cactus that begins its blooms in the daytime. Whether you wish to enjoy dining on the balcony, swimming in the newly resurfaced pool, fishing/boating from the dock, or taking long walks on the sand from your private deeded access to the beach, Casa sur la Baie promises to delight the senses. With proximity to excellent schools, golf courses, tennis, shopping, and restaurants, there’s no better time or place to be - nowhere but here. Some furnishings are included.
