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.

$6.1 million

Buyers purchased the 329 Neapolitan Way estate for $6.1 million in July because of its open great room floor plan and 9-foot glass wall overlooking the pool and Venetian Bay, inviting the outdoors in. Pastel walls, European wide-plank oak-wood flooring and white accents add to the home’s airy feel, as do the neutral furniture and color accents, which came along with the purchase. “This home has a timeless coastal-contemporary feel,” says Amy Becker, a real estate agent with Premier Sotheby’s International Realty who listed the Park Shore property. “The moldings, ceiling detail and well-thought-out overall design set this home apart from others.” Built by Coleman Homes in 2014, the 5,348-square-foot dwelling includes a master suite with dual closets on the first level, plus a marble-floor bathroom with a soaking tub. There’s also a gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and double island, butler’s pantry, gas stove and more. The second floor, accessible by stairs or elevator, holds a living area and wet bar, three guest suites with full bathrooms and walk-in closets, and two balconies. The outdoor area features a dock, fire pit,
negative-edge pool, kitchen and plenty of lounge space. A three-car garage is also included in the home, which is in close proximity to dining and shopping options at The Village Shops on Venetian Bay.

 

$3.2 million

Bonita Beach residents purchased a second beachside home at 26972 Hickory Blvd. for
$3.2 million in June as a rental property. “A contemporary single-family home on the beach is relatively unique” to the area, says Clint Parsons, who listed and sold the space with his wife, Pamela, on behalf of The Parsons Luxury Team at Premier Sotheby’s International Realty. But that’s not the only reason the home stands out. The inside features purple accents throughout, including purple carpeting in the lower-level game room and on the winding staircase. “Of course, the carpeting would be easy to change, but we found that many people loved it,” Parsons says. Buyers purchased the estate with its rich furnishings included. Designed by Randall Stofft, the 4,279-square-foot home also boasts three full bedrooms, three full bathrooms and two half-bathrooms, along with floor-to-ceiling windows, curved interior walls, and a second winding staircase leading to a rooftop terrace with unobstructed views of the Gulf. There are also two balconies and an outdoor patio with a pool and spa.

 

$1.1 million

A family from up north had been searching for the perfect waterfront home before purchasing the 4505 SE 20th Place estate in Cape Coral. Aside from an upgraded boat lift and water access leading to local beaches and downtown Fort Myers, what really made an impact on the buyers was the feel of the home. “It has kind of a Spanish-Mediterranean style,” says Angel Gonzalez, broker and owner of M&M Realty Solutions LLC, who listed the property. Designed by Bud Lawrence, the 3,352-square-foot estate features custom wood and glass front doors, a copper-trimmed roof with handmade tiles, precast stone columns, Italian travertine walkways and more. “(The buyers) really loved the curb appeal,” Gonzalez says. “It was different from any other houses they looked at.” The residence also includes four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and one half-bathroom, plus an outdoor area with a summer kitchen, stainless steel appliances, and an enclosed pool and spa.
