Located on north Casey Key along the sparkling waters of Sarasota Bay, a very private dream estate known as Laffin Place is perfectly nestled on 1.2 acres of luxuriant landscaping. Built in 1937, it is one of the few original island homes still in existence, complete with deeded beach access to the Gulf. A sensitively executed renovation in 2001 beautifully caters to this four-building property with 3,600sf in appointed outdoor living space to celebrate Florida's amazing weather. Experience the serenity of the island with a five-bedroom principle residence, guest cottage, bunkhouse, potting shed/workshop, and boathouse with a 100' dock and boat lift. Take a step back in time to the days of Old Florida with gorgeous hardwood floors, exotic wood paneling, French doors, a Grand Salon with fireplace, and library. The expansive Chef's kitchen with breakfast nook has been completely updated. Enjoy invigorating conversations in the dining or family room framed by flagstone floors and Pecky Cyprus walls. The master bedroom boasts dual baths - one with a luxuriant 7ft long copper tub! Family and guests are provided every amenity including four additional bedrooms, media/game room, and a sunset deck to behold the beauty of the Gulf. Enjoy the artistry of indoor/outdoor living; entertain on the screened veranda or pool deck. A romantic terrace along the water's edge features a summer kitchen shaded by oaks. The boathouse features a rooftop deck inviting you to explore the endless waterways of the coastline.
