Why Build in Boca Grande?
Located on Florida’s Southwest Coast on Gasparilla Island, you will find Boca Grande midway between Sarasota and Fort Myers. The name is Spanish for “Big Mouth” and comes from the mouth of the waterway at the southern tip of Gasparilla Island, which is more than a mile wide and reaches depths up to 80 feet.
Gasparilla Island is home to seven miles of powdery white beaches and world-class tarpon fishing, and no more than five dwelling units can be built per acre. Everyone gets around using bicycles and golf carts, and boating is a way of life.
The Historic Village of Boca Grande was a second-home getaway for presidents, dignitaries, and celebrities over the years, including the Astors, the du Ponts, the Rockefellers, the George H.W. Bush family, Audrey Hepburn, Katherine Hepburn, and Harrison Ford.
Where To Begin?
- Where will you build? The lot’s location will determine any structural and aesthetic limitations for your new home. Is the lot large enough for the design you imagine? Will your builder have to demolish an existing home? Do you want the hot afternoon sun blazing on your back patio? If you already have a lot, you will want to take advantage of its best features and maximize any views.
- Who will live in this house, now and in the future? How many bedrooms and bathrooms would you like, and how large should they be? Do you plan to live in the home throughout your golden years? Would you like an outdoor entertainment space? A special space for your hobbies? Would you like a gym or yoga room, a home theater, or a temperature-controlled wine room?
- What are your color and style preferences? What do you want the overall look and feel of the house to be – beachy, modern, contemporary tropical, or old-Florida style? If unsure, research different design styles, pick two or three that interest you, and discuss them with your designer and builder.
- Have an honest discussion about your budget and what you will be comfortable spending.
