Little Bokeelia Island is a 104-acre property in the Pine Island Sound, off the coast of Florida that was once owned by Duracell battery inventor Charles Burgess, and which is now in need of a new owner. Currently listed at $29.5 million, it includes a stunning main mansion, an informal history museum that displays Burgess’ inventions, a separate guest retreat, and a caretaker’s cottage.
These last buildings make up a sort of Old-Florida Village, with stunning terraces, a koi pond, a lagoon, and a beautiful cascading waterfall. The main residence offers four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and a total available space of 8,000 square feet.
If that’s still not enough for you, you should know that the property permits the development of 29 additional waterfront lots, as water and electricity have already been installed on the island. Currently only reachable by boat or helicopter, this property is ready to become one of the most desirable luxury destinations in the world. All it needs is a new owner with a big vision.
