Owning an 8,000-square-foot luxury mansion is great. But when you put that house on an 104-acre private island, great suddenly turns into extraordinary! And if this sounds good to you, you should act fast and be ready to splash out $29.5 million on this wonderful property called Little Bokeelia Island. It is situated in the Pine Island Sound near Bocca Grande, southwest Florida.
This was once the property of inventor Charles Burgess, the mastermind behind Duracell batteries, and it is now a sprawling tropical paradise with superb gardens, a 4-bedroom, 5-bathroom villa, numerous water features, and even an Old Florida Village with informal history museum, separate guest retreat, and caretaker’s cottage.
The lush vegetation of the island brings a wild charm to it, while the handmade gardens enhance the luxe feel of the property. A lagoon, a koi pond and a waterfall reflect the raw beauty of the water that surrounds the island, and the entire island is a wonderful blend of natural and man-made paradise.
Water and electricity are already installed underground, giving the future owner the possibility to develop 29 large waterfront lots if he or she will want to. You can learn more about Little Bokeelia Island on Christie’s real estate website.
