About 608 North Casey Key Road

Rarely available Gulf to Bay estate size property with 175 feet of Gulf frontage, 175 feet of Bay frontage and encompassing 1.5 acres is located on the exclusive North End of Casey Key. Casey Key, distinguished for its absence of high-rises, traffic congestion, and private beaches, is one of the most esteemed barrier islands of Sarasota and Florida’s Gulf Coast. Positioned amidst exclusivity and privacy, this property presents a prime canvas for luxurious coastal living. Opportunity to build a spectacular new residence with no barriers to removing the current structure; or embrace “Old Florida” and restore the original house built in 1916. This building is the first and oldest structure built on Casey Key and was utilized as a “Fishing Lodge”. Uniquely the front of the house is oriented to Little Sarasota Bay because when it was built there were no bridges and the guests arrived and departed on boats from the mainland! Numerous infrastructure items have been completed facilitating a seamless progression for prospective owners. Most noteworthy is the successful approval and issuance of the permit by the State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection Agency to build west of the coastal construction line, which allows for a 6600+ square foot two-story single-family residence, a 1600+ square foot one-story detached accessory structure with bonus suite, swimming pool, and a reflecting pond at the entrance of the main residence. This is significant because the State EPA permit is the most difficult permit to obtain; also, the Sarasota County building permits are currently in process. The impressive new dock is constructed with premium composite decking and sturdy pilings, which accommodates various vessel sizes, including a 40,000-pound boat lift for vessels over 40 feet, a 17,000-pound lift for boats ranging from 25 to 37 feet, plus a double wave runner lift. Extending 162 feet into the bay, the dock offers power and water access throughout its length, alongside amenities like a fish cleaning station and other conveniences. Additionally, the newly drilled 4-inch and 400-foot-deep irrigation well assures that the estate grounds will be a lush and tropical environment. Embracing the island lifestyle, residents relish the warm Gulf breezes by day and breathtaking sunsets at dusk. A favorite transportation choice by residents is often Golf Carts with easy access to nearby tiki bars, restaurants, grocery store, pharmacy and more. The property's strategic location just north of the historic Blackburn Point bridge facilitates excellent proximity to the mainland with top-rated schools, fine dining establishments, Downtown Sarasota, St Armand’s Circle, The Island of Venice, and world-class medical facilities. Notably, Casey Key is the ONLY barrier island in the region with an expressway from Tamiami Trail to I75 creating easy access to all area international airports, plus private air travel options within ten minutes. The allure of this locale is undeniable, as Casey Key Road was recently acclaimed as the most impressive street nationwide, underscoring the unparalleled status of this magical barrier island.
