Nokomis, FL, USA
Sited directly on the Gulf of Mexico, this LEED Platinum certified property completed in 2011 by My Green Buildings, with a 2012 Aurora Award for green construction, offers a Zen-like experience like no other on Casey Key's 8 mile island near Sarasota. This coastal contemporary residence sited on 160 feet of beachfront, offers just under 4,000 s.f. of living space with an open floor plan and a chic coastal vibe. Designed by Yehuda Inbar Architecture, great attention was given to the space between the structures to frame the views to the Gulf of Mexico. The compound is connected by an inviting exterior courtyard where the various species of stately palm trees set the stage. The design invites you to enjoy the gardens, entertain family and friends on the expansive outdoor decking, or enjoy beachcombing and glorious sunsets. The walls of glass take your sight lines from the entryway right out to the dune and the azure hues of the crystal Gulf waters. Features include pecky cypress ceilings and crown molding, two wood-burning fireplaces, Lutron lighting, outdoor shower, green walled and gated. This is truly a place to unwind, reflect and experience the beauty of nature. Casey Key is the crown jewel of the barrier islands near Sarasota and those who discover its unique character appreciate the low density, proximity to both the historic walking town of Venice with its own airport, easy access to I-75 and Sarasota with its vast cultural offerings.
