Rare - Gulf and Bay acreage. Coming back to you now on 5 acres located on Little Gasparilla Island - a private - boat access only -piece of paradise! This comes with 4 lots on the island, 2 beachfront - one with a house already in place, possibility of building 3 more houses for your own little resort, along with 1 lot at Placida Pointe offering boat access thru Coral Creek. On the West coast of South Florida, the Gulf of Mexico glows turquoise under an eager sun. It’s warm translucent water laps quietly at the fine white sand laden with colorful shells. Conchs, whelks, scallops, pen shells, arks, fossilized sharks teeth—the endless list keeps a beachcomber busy. Pelicans dive for fish off the beach, herons and egrets walk the surf, and little sandpipers jump back and forth as the water sweeps forward and then recedes. Its no wonder why Ponce de León came here looking for the elusive Fountain of Youth. It truly is a spectacular place to be here on the Cultural Coast. Among the stretch of barrier islands which line the coast is Little Gasparilla. It is here where you will find this quintessential private island retreat. Five acres of vibrant subtropical beach-life, this property is the essence of postcard perfect. From the bay side mangrove lined dock and boardwalk entrance to the vast stretch of natural sand dunes, this island escape has everything you need to immerse yourself in the laid-back beach bum lifestyle—including privacy. Accessible only by boat, yet only minutes from the mainland, the island is free from commercialism and hosts only golf carts on its sandy lanes. Old Florida runs strong here and you can feel its history in the unspoiled natural landscape, the gentle hum of fishing vessels, and the understated beach cottages. The property features a home seemingly built by Hemingway himself. The hip rustic interior is lined with wood finishes and a wall of windows looking West out over the beach. Wrap around porches provide ample opportunity to take in the salt air and temperate breezes. A lingering sandy trail leads out from the house through the dunes and their swaying grasses to reach the private beach where peace and solitude is complimented by unlimited ways to explore and invigorate. Paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, skim boarding, swimming and beach walks are all favored activities here, but so are reading, sunbathing, and afternoon naps. The size of this property is immense. Again, five acres of private island living to design or develop as you see fit. The ideas are endless. And to top it off, a mainland lot is included! Includes the following: 9188 LGI w/house, 9192 LGI, 9182 LGI, 9202 LGI, and 13115 Via Flavia.
