Villa Pallidio on Casey Key

A four-story, Italian-style villa on a barrier island near Sarasota, which had been listed for sale for $8.9 million, will sell to the highest bidder at a Feb. 22 auction.

Concierge Auctions will conduct the auction without reserve, or a minimum bid, in cooperation with Kim Ogilvie of Michael Saunders & Company.

The owner and architect who designed the 5,886-square-foot residence on the Casey Key barrier island is George Scantland, whose design was inspired by influential 16th century Italian architect Andrea Palladio.

The property, called Villa Pallidio, has a walled and gated entry featuring a stone fountain, a master bedroom with two bathrooms, a dining room with a fireplace, a penthouse office, a roof garden with a summer kitchen, and multiple travertine loggias and balconies.

Scantland designed Villa Pallidio so that every major room would have views of both the Gulf of Mexico and Blackburn Bay. “You can wake up in the morning to watch the sunrise and see the sunset later in the day in the same room,” Scantland said in a prepared statement.

A preview event at the residence at 1492 Casey Key Road on Casey Key will be held Feb. 8 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. – Mike Seemuth
