The Most Expensive Home in Southwest Florida

Direct beach access on Sanibel Island. Uninhibited views of the Gulf of Mexico. Opulent beachfront luxury. Can you guess the price tag?

Photo by: Royal Shell Real Estate/Christie’s International Real Estate Mandalay, a luxurious Mediterranean-style estate, is nestled on the white sand shores of Sanibel Island.

For $23 million, this 10,000-square-foot Mediterranean mansion can be all yours. The property has a whopping 700 feet of private beach access. And if you've been to Sanibel Island before, then you know why its sugar sand beaches are famous: shells, shells and more shells.

Sanibel Island, which was named by Barron’s magazine as one of the “Ten Best Places for Second Homes,” is a barrier island off the Southwest coast of Florida.

We love the island for its pristine beaches and its relaxed, private setting. Whether you're a seashell collector or a beach connoisseur, this could be your dream home.

Unique finishes and custom details have been incorporated throughout spacious living areas, including barn wood flooring, wood-beamed ceilings, fine stone accents, designer tiling and three gas fireplaces. 

The estate’s master bedroom wing has been designed with multiple offices, walk-in closets and a luxurious bath. A gourmet kitchen has been outfitted with a large eating area and the adjoining dining room can seat up to 14.  

In addition to top-rated schools, fine dining and shopping, residents of Sanibel Island can enjoy access to a litany of recreational facilities and natural areas including 15 miles of unspoiled beaches, fishing venues and a 22-mile scenic bike trail.
