Directly on the Gulf of Mexico with a bayfront easement, this classically elegant home was built to the highest standards in 2008 with impeccable design and quality craftsmanship. From the moment you arrive at the porte-cochere and through the custom mahogany doors, you'll be drawn into the spacious two-story gathering room with views of sparkling blue water and the wide sandy beach. The kitchen affords every amenity including a butler's pantry, walk-in wine cellar and is flanked by two islands for seating and entertaining. The open concept still provides well-defined spaces, an adjacent eat-in kitchen, generous family room and views of the Gulf. The formal dining room and study reflect the art of Venetian plaster walls and the Jerusalem marble floors are honed for ease of care and enjoyment. Take the grand staircase or three stop elevator to any of five en-suite bedrooms. Two master suites each have private Gulf-front balconies, sitting rooms, well-appointed baths and walk-in closets. With more than 6800 finished square feet, this home provides abundant bonus space and flexibility. Beautiful landscaping, large saltwater pool and spa overlook a lush private backyard, an emerald green lawn and steps to your own private beach. Casey Key is a rare place where there are no high rises and commercial development was frozen in time. Here you'll find solitude, yet easy access to great shopping and dining in nearby Sarasota and Venice. Several airport travel options make this a wonderful place to call home.
