Designed by Naples-based Herscoe Hajjar Architects and built by The Aerial Companies, the six-bedroom, seven-and-a-half-bath refined residential offering boasts a meticulous level of craftsmanship highlighted by a thoughtful selection of classic and modern elements. Guests are welcomed through an elegant entryway featuring a custom staircase inspired by the Harvard Club in New York City. An open, light-filled layout flows into a chef’s kitchen and gracious living areas ideal for effortless entertaining. Intended to take advantage of the crosswinds from the beach to the bay, the home seamlessly blends its interior and exterior spaces leading into screened terraces that overlook breathtaking views.
A secluded outdoor oasis showcases a resort-like infinity-edge pool, chickee hut on the beach, boating and kayak lifts. The property is equipped with smart home automation and lighting, an integrated solar panel system, a whole-house generator, an eight-plus-car drive-through garage, a separate boating garage and hurricane impact-rated windows and doors.
“We always envisioned a beautiful location to build our family retreat, and the best location for us was Casey Key. This home was designed for ultimate relaxation and ample amenities to entertain our children and grandchildren. We hope buyers will love this residence as much as we loved building it.” – Todd and Marenda Stitzer, current owners of 1213 Casey Key Road.
“The thing that makes Casey Key unique, there are so few properties statewide on a barrier island that span gulf-to-bay. Eight miles long and limited to only 400 residences, the residential areas are in a State of Florida conservation district and not zoned for any high rises or condominiums, maintaining its charm and desirability.” – Lisa Napolitano and Valerie Dall’ Acqua, Premier Sotheby’s International Realty.
