This “cottage” on Casey Key is perfect for the multimillionaire looking for a getaway that isn’t overpowering in size and upkeep but still manages to pack in a major dose of glamour. Right on the water, it offers spectacular views and a crisp style that’s half Palm Beach, half barefoot island life.
The home has three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths in just over 2,500 square feet of living space, and it’s set on almost half an acre. The layout is simple and semi-open in concept. There’s a large living room lined with windows overlooking the water, and an expansive vaulted cypress ceiling. Each bedroom—two have water views—comes with its own bath.
In addition to a pool, you’ll find several outdoor seating areas surrounding the home. The current owner has it furnished in a simple but opulent style whose neutral colors let the turquoise water and green lawn add all the color that’s needed. In the air-conditioned garage, you’ll find a Rolls and a Bentley, both white. I don’t think they come with the house, although they complement it perfectly.
North Casey Key Road may well be the most prestigious street in the area. It’s the ultimate retreat for eccentric millionaires looking for privacy, and everyone from the Gotti family to Stephen King has enjoyed its secluded charms. In fact, Mr King is known to spend his afternoons strolling down the street, dreaming up his latest horrific plot twist in this most unlikely setting.
141 N. Casey Key Road is priced at $3,795,000. For more info call Lisa Napolitano (941-993-0025) or Valerie Dall Acqua (941-445-7295) of Premier Sotheby’s.
