Property description

Danny Morgan islander ballader, wrote in the late seventies about Captiva Island, 'The Island of My Dreams.' He sang of the island's beauty and our home was built to forever portray that beauty. Some call it, 'The Old Key West House' and some younger folks call it 'The Tree House', but whatever you call it,you will love being nestled in the natural lush vegatation like a tropical rain forest. The house has many special architectural features like an English antique stain glass front door, a hand carved veranda from a victorian home in Chicago inverted over the bar, and antique furniture throughout. This home has a lovely contrast to the typical Florida decor.

Captiva has miles of luxurious award winning sandy beaches, pristine waters, unprecedented shell hunting opportunites, a charming village with resturants & live music, shopping, and it is all within walking distance of a picturesque, unforgetable sunset.

Our home is only steps away from the beach, a two minute walk by the historical cemetery and the Chapel By the Sea. Watch a beautiful sunset, walk to the Mucky Duck for dinner or come home and enjoy one of the more tranquil parts of Captiva

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: My husband has been a college professor for over 40 years. His career began at Cornell University and he has been traveling south every since which is why we now reside in Nashville, TN and we built our home on Captiva Island. My husband's hobby or passion, whatever you want to call it,is restoring antique automobiles. The love and the details of restoring a vauable antique is reflected throughout our home in the hand carved gingerbread on the veranada and the selection of architectural pieces used in the construction of the home. My career for the past 25 years has been in real estate managaing our property in Nashville, Alligator Point and now our home on Captiva. My hobby is moving plants from one spot to another...never would I describe myself as a gardner but my love for vegatation is reflected in the surroundings of our home. We are one of the few on Captiva that has maintained the orginial lush, tropical vegagtion. Our home is not like so many of the cookie cutter mansions you will see. It is a reflection of our love for the purest of designs and 2 years of labor reflecting alot about who we are.

Why the Owner Chose Captiva Island:
Wiles and Gore is near the down town area, The Village, but one of the more peaceful streets. Our home is surrounded by original tropical trees and plants.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We built the house with architectural antiques that make this home different than most Floridian homes adding warmth that only antiques can give.
