With timeless appeal, this beautiful property provides an oasis of calm in a busy world. Evoking the essence of yesteryear, "The Ark" seamlessly combines vintage charm and stunning location with the convenient touches of today. This stunning property spans the width of Captiva and offers Gulf frontage on the sugar sand beach as well as a dock and views of the bay and Buck Key beyond. The story of "The Ark" starts in the 1930s when this home was a houseboat bobbing in Roosevelt Channel. The houseboat was eventually beached and enlarged adding a living room and bedrooms. Throughout the years the owners added on to the home with a watchful eye to preserving its elegant charm. Upon entering you'll notice the touches of a bygone era are masterfully intertwined with today's living. The stunning floors and ceilings frame the views of the pool dock and bay beyond. The large kitchen still has portholes as windows while offering stainless steel appliances. The stunning 2nd-floor master suite is oversized with beamed ceilings, an office/den, his & her bathrooms & a very large reading room where plantation shutters hint at greens and blues of the palm trees, bay & serene environment beyond.
