For 2010 the most expensive property sold was located at 14000 Schultz Rd, Fort Myers, FL 33908 located next to Gulf Harbour. The property boasts of a private River Front Estate on the Caloosahatchee River in Fort Myers Florida. This estate spans over 7 acres and offers a Victorian Mansion of over 12,800 square feet. It was sold in January 2010 for $3,700,000 and was only on the market for 30 days. The property has room for everyone and every toy, with 5 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, mother-in-law quarters and a custom 5 car garage for all those toys. From every angle in the house and on the property you have expansive views of the beautiful Caloosahatchee River.
What this home begged for and I am sure it received from it’s new owners, Mr. and Mrs. Cutler was a make over. Bringing the beauty and elegance of the 19th Century, up to the standards and demands of the 21st Century Homeowner.
If we do the numbers, this home 7+ acre, 12,000+ square foot home sold for $288/square foot! For representing Lee County in 2010 as the most expensive real estate sold, the price per square foot is low, when considering a standard 3 bed room 2 bath room home on the River with less than 3000 square feet sold for over $400 square foot during the real estate boom. The Cutler family made a great purchase when they closed on this property. As we look back at the most expensive sale for 2010, you probably are looking forward to know what the most expensive sale for 2011 is, or will be. Come back soon for the update on the most expensive real estate sold in 2011 in Lee County Florida. I am willing to bet it is one many beautiful beachfront homes found on Sanibel Island, Captiva Island, Fort Myers Island or Bonita Beach.
