SANIBEL AND CAPTIVA, FLA. (April 22, 2021) — A magnificent 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 Jeff Burns and Michael Lawler this property had multiple offers, all brought by Premier Sotheby’s International Realty sales agents, and sold 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. 

“Our family team along with our Premier Sotheby’s International Realty colleagues, were proud to unite the buyer and seller of this jaw-dropping beachfront estate,” said Jeff Burns. “A true oasis of luxury, the lushly landscaped grounds and soothing sounds of waves epitomize the serenity of island life. The record sale price indicates that there is a significant demand for high-end homes in this market and we are proud to be leading the charge in attracting buyers to these stunning island properties.”

In addition to this record-setting sale, The Burns Family Team and Premier Sotheby’s International Realty have also helped multiple local sellers set all-time historical sales records in their communities throughout the area.

“Our marketing program has proven to be the clear leader in not only the ultra-high-end luxury market but is also proving to be an invaluable resource for sellers of all property types,” said Burns. “We are constantly growing and striving to maintain the cutting edge for our valued clients in this fast-moving market. Results speak volumes in this industry and we are pleased to have so many sellers elated with our results.”
