Realty Check: What Your Money Will Buy

Find out how much you have to fork over to buy one of Southwest Florida's fanciest homes.



Southwest Florida is home to some of the nicest real estate in the country. Thinking about buying a slice of paradise? Find out here how much you'll have to hand over to be able to afford the toniest homes in the area.

$12.2 million

Previous Naples residents purchased the expansive Port Royal home at 4100 Rum Row for $12.2 million in late summer 2017. Custom-built in 2006, the more than 10,000-square-foot-under-air property is just shy of 1 acre and boasts six bedrooms (including a spacious master suite and oversize guest suites with a separate cabana), seven full bathrooms and two half-bathrooms. It also has a library decked from floor to ceiling in rich, dark wood. The traditional-style estate has somewhat of a Northeastern feel, says Frank Sajtar, the William Raveis luxury properties specialist who listed it, with wood trimming found throughout. Other details include Waterford sconces and chandeliers, touches of marble flooring, and a kitchen and butler’s pantry created by Colorado-based manufacturer William Ohs. The outdoor area is shaded by front and back landscaping and includes a large pool and spa, screened-in lanai and covered lounge areas, plus “a real wide water view,” Sajtar says. A four-car garage, a boat dock and membership to the prestigious Port Royal Club are added perks for the owners.

 

$3.7 million

A newly added outdoor entertainment area led to the sale of the 172 Seabreeze Ave. home in Naples. Purchased for $3.7 million in September 2017, the waterfront abode previously belonged to well-known area philanthropists and features an oversize pool and spa, 50-foot boat dock and 7-ton boat lift, plus an outdoor kitchen, flat-screen TV and unique wall treatments. “It really made the whole downstairs,” listing agent Shirlene Elkins, a Premier Sotheby’s International Realty sales associate, says of the remodeled space. Another high selling point was the 6,331-square-foot home’s space. “The size of the house is enormous,” Elkins says. Inside, there are six bedrooms, six full bathrooms and two half-bathrooms, along with a built-in entertainment center with surround sound, plus a club room and home theater. There’s also a gourmet kitchen and formal dining room with a lighted tray ceiling and elevator. The Mediterranean-meets-modern-style home is just half a block from the beach and right near LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort.

 

$1.6 million

Buyers who purchased the 2474 McGregor Blvd. estate for $1.6 million last August now have a taste of a popular Florida theme park within their home. The same designer who planned the Pirates of the Caribbean-themed exhibit at Walt Disney World also designed the pool for this dwelling, according to listing agent Bert Parsley, broker/owner of Barclay’s Real Estate Group’s Fort Myers office. The 60,000-gallon negative-edge pool and waterfall overlook the river, with underwater port holes providing a deeper view. There’s also a long wooden dock and a boat lift. Indoors, the four-bedroom, five-and-one-half-bathroom, Mediterranean-style residence includes a large kitchen, two master suites and more. The best part of the 5,572-square-foot estate? “It’s located perfectly between the bridges [of Fort Myers],” so noisy traffic doesn’t travel across the river, Parsley says. “You hear nothing in the back except for the occasional boat passing by, which is nice.”
