Beachfront, Barefoot Luxury

The Casa Marina district showcases mid-century modern architecture, ranging from clean-lined bungalows and private enclaves to statuesque mansions. Its wide, tree-lined boulevards offer the ideal space to showcase royal palms and poincianas.

The Casa, as locals call the neighborhood, was developed in the 1950s as an exclusive neighborhood for wealthy residents. It retains its upscale aura today, offering quiet streets, large lots and walled gardens.

Today, relics of that time remain in buildings such as the Curry Mansion, which once housed Florida Keys’ first self-made millionaire.
