16979 Captiva Dr
Captiva, FL 33924

6 Bd   7 Ba   5,598 Sqft   714 Days
One of Captiva's most iconic residences resting on 2.5 acres with 200 ft of bay-frontage overlooking the sparkling waters toward the preservation land beyond. 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 an knockout outdoor kitchen, spa and huge pool along with billiards and more. Remember to visit the guest house too. Unlike any other location on the Islands', here the wildlife entertainment is endless from wading spoonbills to diving brown pelicans and the manatees along with dolphins passing by.
