When you combine award-winning architecture with an extraordinary 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 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.
Details abound throughout the property including a two bedroom guest house which formerly served as barracks for the U.S. Coast Guard, meandering botanical gardens, a private pool and pavilion with a large covered terrace and an expansive dock in Little Sarasota Bay.
Enjoy the sunrise over the Bay and sunset over the Gulf - this rare find is a waterfront haven ideal for the beach comber, boater, architectural enthusiast or anyone looking for a quiet respite in one of Sarasota’s best kept secrets.
