About This Property
This awe-inspiring home is surrounded by majestic deep-water views over Peekins Ranch Cove and is privately located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and moments from the sugar-sand beaches of Boca Grande.
From the moment you arrive through the tree-lined gates of ‘Floridad’, you will be captivated by the lush tropical landscaping and lavish grounds of this estate property. Within this peaceful oasis, you’ll find fruit trees and elegant sculptures created by local artists, some dating back nearly 100 years. These elements effortlessly blend, building the tapestry of an idyllic lifestyle by merging Boca Grande’s unique history and stunning gifts of nature for truly gracious living.
The impeccably constructed and maintained home has 3,524 square feet of living space and a generous pool/spa offering total privacy. The estate has limitless water views, 175 feet on open water (including 75' perpetual easement and submerged lands), no neighbors in sight, and only dolphins, manatees, and shorebirds in your backyard.
Walk up the steps to the entrance and prepare to be dazzled the moment you open the door, as you gaze through the wall of windows to the spectacular, wide-open vista of Gasparilla Sound and Charlotte Harbor. This home was designed to take advantage of the stunning views and every room features a water view and showcases the beauty of nature. Featuring exquisite custom finishes throughout the meticulous and elegant interior, as well as numerous decks and patios that take advantage of the tropical panorama. The sun-drenched kitchen includes premium appliances and provides plenty of space for cooking, entertaining, and dining, and the wide-open floor plan provides views from sunrise to sunset. Take the three-stop elevator up to the main bedroom suite, where you will pause for a moment, captivated by the panoramic views before you, with blue skies and sparkling marine waters as far as the eye can see. The suite features a dramatic string of picture windows and encompasses the entire floor. You’ll find here a generous lounging area and his and her office spaces, one of which is located above the suite, affording incredible views and total privacy. Back on the main floor, the guest wing is ensuite, tucked away from the living area. It has its own mini-kitchen, easy access to the outdoors, and views that will lull your guests into a state of bliss.
If your day includes a trip on the water, you’ll find your boats at the waters edge. The covered dock accommodates a boat up to 60’, plus two additional lift stations, and plenty of room for your water toys. There’s immediate access to deep water, for limitless adventures on the coast. When you’re ready to return home, stately tropical elegance awaits you.
Gasparilla Island is nestled on Florida’s Gulf Coast, roughly halfway between Tampa and Fort Myers. This barrier island is a recreation enthusiast’s dream, bordered by the Gulf of Mexico, Charlotte Harbor, Little Gasparilla Pass and Boca Grande Pass. It’s a place where bicycles and golf carts rule the roads and old Florida charm warms both the sand and the heart, with arguably the best tropical climate in the country. The moniker “Tarpon Fishing Capital of the World” is deserved but does not adequately describe the variety of both inshore and direct deep-sea fishing opportunities, set among world-class dining and recreation. For your convenience, ‘Floridad’ is conveniently located just 6 miles from the private Coral Creek Airport and close to Coral Creek Club’s celebrated, Tom Fazio designed, 18-hole golf course.
