3528 Casey Key Road, Nokomis, FL | Key West Style on the Bay

MORE PHOTOS COMING SOON!

Welcome to this uniquely designed and built Key West style bayfront home set on over half an acre in this convenient mid-key location, on idyllic Casey Key, the 8-mile barrier island situated between Siesta Key and historic downtown Venice. The rich wood paneling is evident of the original owner who, as an heir to the Weyerhaeuser timber fortune, appreciated the warmth of fine paneling detail in the main rooms. You and your family will enjoy the comfortable open floor plan with its volume ceilings, dramatic fireplace and walls of glass opening to the resort-style pool and decking. Two guest ensuites are in separate wings on the ground floor; the cook’s kitchen allows for easy meal preparation to be enjoyed in either the formal dining room or on the terrace. Retreat to the master suite on the second level with beautiful gulf views, chic and modern double baths, double walk-in closets, two offices and an additional balcony with stunning bay views. Venice airport is conveniently located just 10 minutes away from Casey Key where private jets can land and charter services are available. One of the aspects that makes Casey Key unique and desirable is there are fewer than 400 single family homes, no commercial activity and a ban on high-rise structures. Because the 8-mile strand of properties can never get longer, sprawl inland or soar upward, demand for Casey Key properties continues to increase as buyers look for serenity and a casual beach life with private dockage at most bay front residences. Truly a place to call “home.”
