Mansion Global: Private Island in Sanibel, Florida, Heading to Auction Next Month

Ideal for buyers looking for seclusion, tranquility and convenient social distancing, a private island in southwest Florida—where your only neighbors are dolphins and manatees—is headed for auction with no reserve. 

The four-acre Crescent Island will go under the hammer on site on Nov. 21 with Elite Auctions. 

“In Sanibel, Florida, Crescent Island sits off the shoreline of Pine Island, surrounded by the beautiful waterways of Pine Island Sound,” Tara McLean, president of Elite Auctions, said in an email. 

The single, three-story residence on the verdant tropical island was built in 2003 and is also available to buy for $2.59 million, its asking price since hitting the market in the spring of 2019, listing records show. 

The house is fitted with three bedrooms, wood flooring, cathedral ceilings, a rooftop deck, and 360-degree waterfront views from every level—across to the mainland to the east and over to the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge to the west, according to the listing. 

There’s also a pool and a deep-water dock that provides unrestricted access to the Gulf and the Intracoastal Waterway.

Mangroves, tropical foliage, and of course, the ocean surround the property and teem with wildlife from coastal seabirds to fish, dolphins and manatees, the listing said. 

As well as a peaceful family retreat, the property could also be used as an investment. “A potentially significant rental income makes the property a remarkable investment opportunity,” Ms. McLean said.
