Glass Dream

Casey Key, FL

Built in 2022

A north Casey Key paradise sits on the Intracoastal waterfront with unparalleled views towards Spanish Point and the Gulf of Mexico. The three story home nestles into the sloping site for a rare Florida basement below the 4,600 square feet living area above. A two story glass vessel Great Room element lends the home its name as the Dining room, Kitchen, and Living room open space fold off the Great room. A guest suite, laundry room, and powder room remain on the first floor. A four stop elevator connects the basement, garage, first living level, and second living level spine as a Ferrari red painted, 3D tile art wall rises alongside the entry volume.

The second floor has an identical second guest suite and the spacious primary bedroom suite. The Primary bathroom has a soaker tub and steam shower to unwind before moving into a large built-in dressing room with a floating island. Through a secret door passageway, the home office sits like a bird’s nest above the great room; overlooking the Intracoastal waterway via three walls of ten foot tall glass. Balconies to the north and south allow cross ventilation and chimney effect passive cooling.

A spacious sun deck, outdoor living, and bar area layers underneath the floating primary bedroom suite. The west facing railing multi-purposes as a privacy screen and sun diffuser as the aluminum fins double up spacing at the three foot railing height. Vertical repetition is conveyed from the window mulls to the railing fins to the front entry concrete piers. The pier spacing is carried into the landscaping and driveway design with eight inch gaps filled with grass stripes for a parking area while entertaining.
