Romance, rarity and history. The only Gulf-to-Bay estate on Captiva’s Gold Coast to be offered in decades! The story of this charming beach house began in 1912 on Useppa Island, as part of the Tarpon Inn Resort by famed developer Barron G. Collier. Noted philanthropist and big-game hunter Col. Francis T. Colby acquired the cottage in 1948 and moved it to its current rare location on Captiva’s Gold Coast, atop the beach dune with 131 feet of Gulf frontage. No stairs to the beach! The meticulously restored beach house combines modern comfort with old world quality and materials and together with the expansive pool, pool house with fireplace, and guest house with covered boat dock (20,000-pound lift) on Roosevelt Channel offer a one-of-a-kind beach and boating experience that can no longer be duplicated because of regulations. The entire estate is lavishly landscaped and is sold fully furnished. Your very own private oasis on the Gulf of Mexico!
