Casey Key is a narrow barrier island located south of Siesta Key and north of Venice. The unique geography of this Sarasota Key makes it ideal for developing upscale real estate and unique neighborhoods. This small housing market is part of Osprey and Nokomis, two Sarasota County towns that have managed to retain a significant amount of Old Florida charm.
Prospective home buyers will find real estate offerings in Casey Key to be more diversified than in other barrier islands on the Gulf of Mexico. Simple beach cottages and bungalows compete against Florida ranch-style homes, condominiums, resort villas, and spectacular beachfront estates. The most upscale listings can be found on the northern Osprey portion of the island; this is where you can find imposing Mediterranean-style mansions that feature dramatic views of the Gulf of Mexico on one side and the Little Sarasota Bay on the other.
The southern Nokomis portion of Casey Key features more modest residences. As expected, the most sought-after properties are those located right on the beach, but all residents on this island have easy access to the white sands and warm water of the Gulf of Mexico. The beaches on this southern section of Casey Key are less crowded than those in Siesta Key, but the sand here also features an incredible shade of white; plus, there are plenty of shells and shark teeth to collect.
Residents of Casey Key will find some essential suburban comforts such as shopping and dining on the island. For business, culture, entertainment, and education, residents must travel to continental Florida, which is just a short drive away on two scenic causeways: Blackburn Point Rd to the north and Albee Road to the south. Casey Key will prove most attractive to homeowners who are passionate about the beach, nature, boating, and fishing. Still, living in Sarasota County means being close to golf courses, racquet clubs, pristine state parks, the arts, and much more.
Casey Key is more than just an attractive housing market in Southwest Florida; it is also a great place to raise a family. School-age residents on the island can enroll in some of the most highly-rated public schools in the region, and this community is known as one of the safest in Sarasota County.
