North Casey Key Road is narrow and full of potholes and the residents want to keep it that way. It deters the casual visitor, which suits the multi-millionaires who live there just fine. It also provides a walking path for the street’s most famous resident Stephen King, who can often be seen strolling intently down the road, deep in concentration as he dreams up another one of his legendary thrillers.
1042 N. Casey Key Road was built back in 1980. It’s a rambling ranch-style home typical of the period. Back then, Casey Key was still rather simple and unspoiled, a beach retreat for the discreetly wealthy. Today it’s much more opulent and elaborate, which makes this unpretentious home even more of an anomaly. This is the first time it’s been on the market in 20 years.
It’s big and comfortable—four bedrooms and close to 5,000 square feet under air. The floor plan is rather traditional, with a formal living room, dining room and family room. The master bedroom is downstairs.
It has 131 feet of frontage on the bay, but you can also see the Gulf, and there is deeded private beach access. It has a dock and a boat house that will accommodate a 25 foot boat. The lot is well over half an acre, with beautiful mature landscaping, and the cachet of the perfect location on the most prestigious street in the area.
1042 N. Casey Key Road is priced at $2,978,400. For more info call Lynn Robbins of Coldwell Banker at (941) 376-5077.
