1 Crescent Island

Sold At Auction

– Sold & Closed –

Crescent Island, located conveniently in Pine Island Sound with direct Gulf of Mexico access, overlooks the spectacular JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, and is just minutes by boat to nearby Sanibel Island, Captiva Island, St. James City, and beautiful Cayo Costa State Park with its endless white sandy beaches. A potentially significant rental income makes the property a remarkable investment opportunity, and it’s already been in the spotlight, having been featured in an episode of HGTV’s Island Hunters. 

Crescent Island is quite special for the fact that it is truly a private island, with the principal residence as the only home, and a deep-water dock that provides unrestricted access to the Gulf and the Intracoastal Waterway. For anyone who desires to escape the madness on the mainland to their own private island retreat, or simply a peaceful spot of respite along the Florida coastline for themselves, your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity awaits. 

The entire island is yours. 

Built in 2003, this “Old-Florida” style home features three levels, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and boasts breathtaking 360-degree views from every level. For peace of mind during hurricane season, the home was built to meet Florida’s most stringent building codes. The bountiful artesian, freshwater well supplies life to the property and may indeed have been what Spanish explorer Ponce De León sought as the Fountain of Youth in the year 1513. 

Inside, captivating waterfront views surround the residence, giving one the feeling of complete isolation from the mainland and its complications. The guest suite overlooks the main living area, with amazing views of the horizon – it can also be partitioned off for privacy when guests come to call. This loft bedroom includes a full ensuite bath. The master suite, also on the same level, provides a private deck, with views of Pine Island Sound and the nature preserve. There is also a full bath and washer/dryer. 

The third bedroom is located on the main level, and can also be partitioned for privacy. The main level also features a half bath and an outdoor shower on the outside deck beachfront. 

Surrounding the residence is a serene setting provided by mangroves, tropical and subtropical foliage, and the water teeming with wildlife – coastal seabirds, fish, dolphins and manatees. Just north of the island is magnificent Boca Grande Pass, world-renowned for sport Tarpon fishing. Kayak, watch the dolphins, take a ride on your boat and return just in time for dinner with the catch of the day – your recreation options are practically endless.  

One of a kind Crescent Island is close enough to civilization to be convenient, yet far enough offshore for a cozy, intimate getaway or time well spent with family and friends. Morning sunrises to the east over the mainland, and sunsets over the Wildlife Refuge in the evening to the west; the views are breathtaking.
