Casey Key, FL, June 02, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The largest single-family Gulf-front property currently for sale in Sarasota County on the Florida Gulf Coast, with ties to the steel industry, has been recently listed for $15.75 million by RE/MAX Platinum Realty.
Located at 230 N. Casey Key Road on Casey Key, this winter estate consists of three parcels that were assembled in the 1950s by Elbert Gary Sutcliffe, whose grandfather was Elbert Henry Gary, the key founder of U.S. Steel, bringing in partners J. P. Morgan, Andrew Carnegie and Charles M. Schwab. The city of Gary, Indiana, was named after him.
The 8.83-acre Gulf to Bay property consists of 6.25 upland acres, a private lagoon and submerged land, with 400 feet of Gulf frontage and 275 feet of Bay frontage.
This private peninsula, shaded by banyan trees, palm trees and mature landscaping, includes an updated single-family estate cottage, a guesthouse with a two-car garage and a detached two-car garage. The lagoon has a dock, and there is room for a private helipad.
The barrier island of Casey Key is home to CEOs, authors and celebrities who love the Florida lifestyle but want a high level of privacy and seclusion. Venice Airport is just minutes away to fly in a private plane.
"It is an idyllic lifestyle," said former professional racecar driver George Sutcliffe, who represents the family selling the home and has many fond memories of living and vacationing there.
