Create your private tropical oasis off the coast on
Southwest Florida's East Part Island. Just two miles
offshore from Pineland Marina on Pine Island, Florida,
approximately 20 miles west of Ft. Myers and the
Southwest Florida International Airport, and only 125 to
145 miles from Miami, Tampa, Orlando, Palm Beach and Ft.
This 100 acre tropical
island has some well known neighbors like the nearby
prestigious islands of Useppa, Captiva and Boca Grande.
Also, just a short boat ride away in the waterway
neighborhood, are the adventure destinations
Cayo Costa Island,
which is a state owned park, Cabbage Key and Upper
Captiva Island. There are many diverse dining
destinations on these nearby islands.
East Part Island has
approximately three to five acres of uplands surrounded by the
pristine waters of Pine Island Sound and the
Intracoastal Waterway. The Gulf of Mexico is just two
miles away which can be seen through Captiva Pass. The
island is covered with native vegetation and Australian
pines, ficus trees, cabbage palms, coconut trees and
more. There is a fresh water artisan spring well already
on site. A cement block constructed house on the island
is no longer habitable. However, building a home on East
Part Island can be a rewarding experience when hiring
Dan Davenport, an experienced island
builder, who will build to suit an off the grid solar
and propane generator residence.
Two new docks accommodate access to the island which is
best achieved with a shallow draft boat at any tide.
Otherwise, there is four feet or more water at each dock
at low tide.
A one acre lot on nearby
Cayo Costa State Park Island is also for sale by the
owner of East Part Island.
The property includes the use of a dock and seven miles
of white beaches. Purchase both properties and enjoy the
short boat road to and from your two idyllic island
agriculture/residential with Lee County. The owner is
selling the 100 acre island intact, not as parcels.
However, buyer opportunities abound. The county allows
for one house per 20 acres including the wetlands. There
are several great sites for homes. Build one or two
large homes and two or three cottages to be developed as
a tropical nature resort, a B& B or a fish camp. Create
a design for green living, with low impact septic
systems and solar power, a perfect fit for the
environmentally sensitive island.
