Property Description

One of Captiva's most iconic residences resting on over 2.5 acres with 200 ft of bay-frontage overlooking the sparkling waters toward the preservation land beyond. Situated on a peninsula this property affords unparalleled wide water views unlike any other on the islands. As you approach up the shell drive you are surrounded by mature specimen plantings from around the globe that can only come with decades of establishment and deliberately arranged garden paths highlighting many exotic species. Upon arrival you are greeted with bay views before even entering due to the wonderful breezeway design which looks through to the wrap-around covered boat basin and gazebo. As you enter, you are welcomed with a hand forged cascading stairway which brings you to the interior for a knockout view. This sprawling one level home design is only possible because of the double water frontage of 200ft. Unequivocally the ultimate home for entertaining, with a massive relaxing area along with a knockout outdoor kitchen, spa and huge pool with billiards and more. Beautifully remodeled with a cool coastal feel that blends well with the architecture. Remember to visit the guest house too. Matterport soon.
