A beachfront estate has sold for $17.15 million — the highest-priced residential sale in the history of Sanibel and Captiva Islands and the top sale in the Lee County MLS. Located at 16660 Captiva Drive, the Caribbean-style manor home is situated on over two acres and boasts more than 200 feet of Gulf frontage.

Premier Sotheby’s International Realty sales associates Jeff Burns (The Burns Family Team) and Michael Lawler represented the seller; Maxwell Thompson brought the buyer.

After only a short marketing period by Burns and Lawler this property had multiple offers, all brought by Premier Sotheby’s International Realty sales agents, and ended up selling for over asking price. 

This spectacular property features breathtaking views of the Gulf from nearly every room and includes two family rooms, a study, master suite with spa retreat, spacious media and fitness rooms, two-story guest house with two fully-equipped guest suites, and freestanding garage with two bays (in addition to the main house parking bays), gazebo for seaside meditation or contemplation of the koi pond, and a saltwater pool and spa surrounded by a multilevel, coquina-stone lanai. 

Headquartered in Naples, Florida, Premier Sotheby’s International Realty has over 1,400 associates and employees in 40 locations throughout Florida and North Carolina. Premier Sotheby’s International Realty also benefits from an association with the storied Sotheby’s auction house, established in 1744. For more information, visit premiersothebysrealty.com.
