Casey Key

The Most Quiet of Sarasota's Barrier Islands


casey key in sarasota florida   "Casey Key is one of Sarasota's hidden gems," says one experienced Sarasota real estate agent friend of ours. A somewhat isolated and exclusive enclave, Some of the most spectacular estate homes and mansions in Sarasota are located on Casey Key. You'll immediately notice, as you begin your tour that this is a unique place, different from Sarasota's other barrier islands. This 8-mile narrow strip of land is home to only about 400 residents. It is one of the most prestigious island keys in the state of Florida. Casey Key runs from the southern tip of Siesta Key down to where a short bridge brings you back to the mainland in the city of Nokomis, Florida. Residents enjoy an unspoiled tropical key with glistening white sandy beaches, a sense of private elegance by day and picture-perfect sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico in the evening.

  Casey Key Road, a scenic winding road, is the only road on the island. As you drive along the road, sheltered by a canopy of old-growth oak, palm, and pine trees, you catch glimpses of elegant, modern Sarasota luxury homes as well as some old-Florida beachfront homes, virtually all of which are located either directly on the beach or just across the street from the beach. Some of the homes include docking facilities while others rely upon the boat launch at Nokomis Beach just north of the Albee Road access to the mainland.

  When, from time to time, a Casey Key home comes onto the Sarasota real estate market, it is frequently bought very quickly by people yearning for the lifestyle that only Casey Key offers. If you'd like to have the opportunity to purchase a home on Casey Key, it would be wise to establish a relationship with a Sarasota real estate professional knowledgeable about Sarasota luxury waterfront homes who can apprise you immediately of Casey Key properties that come on to the market.

  Casey Key's beaches add to its serene atmosphere. Nokomis Beach, which fronts both the Gulf of Mexico and the Intracoastal Waterway, is one of the most pristine and untouched beaches in the area offering a canoe/kayak launch, restrooms, swimming beach, a boardwalk, and a boat ramp on the Sarasota Bay side. And then there's North Jetty Park at the southern tip of Casey Key. This park extends from the Intracoastal Waterway to the Gulf of Mexico.

  There isn't a lot to do on Casey Key, but to many of its residents, that very serenity is part of the island's charm. It is the perfect place for leisurely walks or bike rides along its beaches, but its closeness to downtown Sarasota makes it convenient to get to all the many arts and cultural attractions of Sarasota Florida.

  Competent Realtors like Dick Plumb, a successful Sarasota Florida real estate agent who we know would be delighted to show you waterfront homes and condos on Casey Key.
