SARASOTA, FLA. (April 27, 2021) — A one-of-kind coastal retreat on Casey Key has sold for $16.5 million. Nestled on 3.7 acres between the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay, this resort-like compound encompasses 120 feet of direct Gulf frontage and well over 1,000 feet of bay frontage. Located at 1900 North Casey Key Road, the property was marketed exclusively by Joel Schemmel of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s Downtown Sarasota office. Jennifer Linehan of Michael Saunders & Company brought the buyer.

Designed by Naples-based Stofft Cooney Architects and crafted by award-winning Sarasota homebuilder Michael K. Walker in 2018, the 9,600-square-foot primary residence blends comfort and sophistication to achieve the ultimate tropical escape. Framed by 12-foot ceilings and walls of glass, the home showcases turquoise water views from every room. From custom millwork and hardwood flooring to exotic marble and stone, all materials were hand-picked by the owners, who curated an elegant and livable sanctuary. Exceptional interior appointments include an inviting chef’s kitchen, his-and-her offices, and an extraordinary master wing with its own family room, terrace and boutique closet. The second-floor guest retreat includes four bedrooms, a bonus room and two expansive terraces with water views. 

Outside, a tropical resort paradise awaits, with multiple outdoor covered and uncovered seating areas, saltwater pool, spa, fire pit, and bocce ball court — all brilliantly complemented by extensive landscape architecture. A separate guest house/party pavilion has 

2,320 square feet of living space that includes over 1,600 square feet of covered outdoor entertainment space. A canopied nature preserve leads to two private beaches on the bay, while a boat dock, two grandfathered boat lifts, and a kayak launch provide easy access to the Intracoastal Waterway. The property is equipped with smart home automation and lighting, a generator, and 10-car drive-through garage. 


“This amazingly curated property has everything aligned to maximize its stunning Gulf-to-Bay views. The significant sale price demonstrates the strength of the luxury market and the infinite appeal of waterfront property.”
