We get it: You're looking for a house with Spanish-Mediterranean architecture, but you also want to be far away from the bright lights and traffic of the city – any city. And you don't want to compromise on comfort.
That's why O Little Bokeelia Island in Boca Grande might be right for you! All 104 pristine acres of this private island off of Florida's west coast could be yours for $24.5 million. It comes with a four-bedroom mansion that's a stunning example of Spanish-inspired architecture.
The house is fitted out with everything you need to be marooned in style: Central A/C and an in-ground pool to escape the semi-tropical heat. On a clear, balmy day you could just swing in a hammock under one of the palm trees, or retreat to the waterfall oasis. There is also a wood-burning fireplace in the family room to take the chill off of deep-winter nights. Whatever the time of year, you have amazing options to make every meal a beautiful experience, whether you want to eat in the formal dining room, poolside, beachfront, or out on one of the property's patios overlooking the island, harbor and ocean.
O Little Bokeelia has at least three piers for you and your guests to dock their boats, and there is golf cart parking.
The current owners have lived on the property for 26 years. They didn't own the whole island originally. They ended up purchasing the entire property to prevent further development. According to an interview with ABC, the owners are selling the house now so they can focus on their Christian missionary work.
But you have to be a motivated buyer, and put up a $150,000 deposit before the seller will give you a private tour. A three-hour tour!
