Mansions on the Market: The West Wind
316 N. Casey Key Road, Osprey
Listing price: $7.650 million | Specs: 5 bedrooms | 6 bathrooms | 7,121 sq. ft.
Details: Welcome to West Wind, the main house and a sprawling modern masterpiece gracing the exclusive north end of Casey Key with dreamy views of both the Gulf of Mexico and Little Sarasota Bay. Created by New York architect, and former architecture department chair at Harvard University Toshiko Mori, the residence is a curated study in how to create awe-inspiring spaces using natural surroundings. The sun hits the prized dichroic glass prism, diffusing daylight from clerestory windows into a spectrum of colors creating a living-art spectacular. The solid concrete construction is by renowned builder Michael K. Walker & Associates. The completely renovated two-bedroom guest house, which formerly served as barracks for the U.S. Coast Guard, enjoys incredible Gulf of Mexico views from every room and a dream terrace perched above the palms. Botanical gardens of more than 1.6 acres, a private pool and 1-bedroom guest quarters, with a pavilion with a large covered terrace, enjoy expansive views of Little Sarasota Bay.
