Designed in 1938 by the renowned Palm Beach architectural firm, Wyeth and King, known for the  distinguished, Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach – this 5,056 Sq. Ft. waterfront estate exudes grace and style.

Here, elegance and refinement exist in perfect harmony with the vibrant natural surroundings. Established bougainvillea, thick fern and grasses combine beautifully with manicured bushes, tropical plants, and swaying palms.  The exquisite estate resides in a setting of bright blue skies, rich green tropical landscape, white sandy beaches, and sparkling aquamarine gulf water; an exceptional masterpiece of captivating design, impeccable mature landscape, and a rare gulf-front estate in historic Boca Grande.

A promenade of palms lead the way through the gated, long drive to the property which encompasses five bedroom, six luxurious full and two half bath. Suffused comfort and opulence for entertaining family and friends, the home has been thoroughly modernized while diligently preserving its historical integrity and original details.

An elegant and grand foyer welcomes arrivals to this island lifestyle, complemented with warm wood finishes, tray ceilings, impact windows and custom French doors leading outside to the Gulf.

Imagine spending warm days basking on the beaches or shopping in the quaint historical town of Boca Grande. Fend off the chilly nights comfortably, centered around one of several fire places throughout the well-appointed  home. Through the large windows athwart the back of the house, the calm gulf water is reflected in the moonlight.

The guest wing and pool house provide coveted privacy and comfort for your guests while the single-level primary residence is a haven of luxury and repose.

Ideally positioned between Sarasota and Naples along the emerald green gulf coast of Florida, Gasparilla Island has much to offer the discriminating homeowner. Small-town charm, quaint community with an active social season, and terrific culinary offerings, Boca Grande residents enjoy a unique lifestyle.

Opulent waterfront living at its finest, this historic island residence takes a step back in time, yet offers every modern convenience.  With walking access to charming downtown Boca Grande stores, shops, and restaurants, and incredible beach access in your own backyard, the home is perfectly situated on the island. Ideal for everyday relaxation and memorable entertaining alike, this retreat in Boca Grande is an enchanting delight.
