Residential Property Sale Establishes New Benchmark For Casey Key
Posted by Tom Heatherman — July 21, 2011
Casey Key, FL - (July 20, 2011)—A Gulf-front estate listed by Linda Roe Dickinson of Michael Saunders & Company became Casey Key’s highest selling property of 2011 when it closed on July 15, selling for $7.575 million. The sale was also the year’s second highest involving residential properties in Sarasota County; yet another indicator that the market for high value properties in Southwest Florida has improved considerably. The last time a Casey Key property sold for a higher amount was in November 2009.
The 1.65-acre estate, whose mansion includes more than 10,000 square feet under air, is situated on 200 feet of Casey Key shoreline with magnificent views of the Gulf of Mexico. There are two master suites - one up and one down - and three guest suites. The outdoor spaces include a living area that wraps the Gulf side of the house, a summer kitchen, disappearing edge swimming pool and spa. Gated and walled, the home is accessed via a handsome porte-cochere with circular drive and motor court. There is an 8-car garage and separate caretaker’s building.
Linda Roe Dickinson has lived in Sarasota since 1975 and has been the top-producing agent for Michael Saunders & Company for the past seven consecutive years.
