This prime 1.5 acre property has 175 ft. of Gulf front and 175 ft. of Little Sarasota Bay front and is more than 450 ft. deep. Secluded by mature oaks, palms, pines, agave and an enormous banyan tree, the rustic residence has changed little since it was built in 1916. It's unlikely the Old Florida homestead, constructed of pecky cedar can be salvaged, but perhaps the 10 ft. ceilings, hardwood floors, 4 fireplaces, original blown glass sconces, French doors and lunette windows will provide an inspiration to the buyer. Submerged pilings that extend into Little Sarasota Bay is evidence of an old dock that once stood on the property. Construction of a new dock would complete what could be one of the finest estates on Casey Key. OF NOTE: This is one of the first homesteads on Casey Key and is said to have served as lodging for adventurers and their guides who arrived by boat to hunt the lushly vegetated 8 mile long barrier island at the turn of the century. Seller may consider some financing.
