A Little Information About Casey Key
Casey Key is a small island community with fewer than 600 residents. It sits along 8 miles of beautiful shoreline with white sandy beaches. It is secluded from the hustle and bustle of big city life, but still near enough to enjoy the perks larger cities have to offer like shopping and fine dining.
Casey Key is situated between Siesta Key at the North and Venice Beach at the South. To the east you will find Blackburn Bay, Dryman Bay, and Little Sarasota Bay. The Gulf of Mexico makes up the west side of the island. Access to the mainland is provided via a bridge at the south end of the island and Blackburn Point Bridge at the north end. Blackburn Point Bridge is an old-fashioned 1920s swing bridge, one of only two swing bridges remaining in the United States.
The real estate in Casey Key offers a pleasant mix of waterfront and bay view homes in an array of sizes with exquisite architecture styles like Spanish-Mediterranean, Old Florida, and Modern. Homes sizes here range from quaint 1,400 square feet to massive 14,000 square feet floor plans. Many of the homes include boardwalks to Casey Key’s private beaches, tennis courts, and swimming pools.
If you buy a home in Casey Key, you could end up with a celebrity as your next-door neighbor as Stephen King and Rosie O’Donnell both own homes on the island, along with several other well-known celebrities.
There is a lot of history to be had in and around Casey Key and the surrounding areas. For a period of time in the 1920s, Casey Key was known as Treasure Island. The name was eventually changed back to Casey Key. Many of the homes on the island have been in existence since the late 1800s and many still have some of the historical features that were original to the estates.
Dining establishments are not allowed on the island. However, to the west of the North bridge sits Casey Key Fish House which serves mainly seafood, but you can find a few other items on their menu such as burgers, hot dogs, chicken and steak. There is a large tiki bar outside the restaurant where you can enjoy drinks and conversation with a nice view of the water.
In Osprey, Florida, which is just on the other side of the Little Sarasota Bay there is an archeological and environmental museum called Historic Spanish Point that sits on 30 acres of land. You will also find historic buildings from the pioneer era, a beautiful butterfly garden, a boardwalk that overlooks the bay and nature trails that will take you through beautifully landscaped gardens.
While the beaches in Casey Key are private, there are two public beaches located at the south end of the island called North Jetty Park and Nokomis. These are two popular spots for visitors to come to take in the breathtaking views, enjoy the wildlife native to the area, and to revel in the beautiful history that surrounds and makes up Casey Key.
