When you combine award-winning architecture with an extraordinary Gulf to Bay location the result is pure perfection. Welcome to West Wind, a sprawling modern masterpiece gracing the coveted north-end of Casey Key. Created by New York architect and former architecture department chair at Harvard, Toshiko Mori, the main home is a curated study in how to create awe-inspiring spaces using natural surroundings. Coupled with the design architecture of James Carpenter, the sun hits his prized dichroic glass prism, diffusing daylight from clerestory windows into a spectrum of colors creating a living-art spectacular. Construction by Michael K. Walker & Assoc., renowned for building island and Gulf front manses. Details abound including a completely renovated 2-bedroom guest house which formerly served as barracks for the U.S. Coast Guard. Incredible Gulf of Mexico views from every room and a dream terrace perched above the palms. 3 car-garage. Meandering through botanical gardens on over 1.6 acres, a private pool and 1-bedroom guest quarters plus pavilion with a large covered terrace enjoy expansive views of Little Sarasota Bay. The dock was built in 2002 delighting boaters near & far. Enjoy the sunrise over the Bay and sunset over the Gulf on Casey Key, an island paradise where life is about dipping your toes in the sand and then boarding your boat to explore the Bay waters. The cultural and dynamic city of Sarasota and the quiet and quaint city of Venice are nearby. This defines island living at its best.
