$2.69M Pirate Harbor Home is the Most Expensive in its ZIP Code

PUNTA GORDA, FL (July 27, 2016) – A new construction home in Pirate Harbor, located at 24129 Jolly Roger Boulevard has just hit the market for $2,699,900 and is the highest priced residence currently on the market and the only one over $2 million in the 33955 ZIP code1. Todd and Tamra Murray of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate’s Punta Gorda office and Darren Dowling with the Sarasota Downtown office have co-listed the waterfront luxury property.

“Luxury buyers will get a much better value for their money in Punta Gorda compared to Sarasota, where this same house could easily be listed for double,” said Dowling. “The luxury market is very crowded in Sarasota, which could be part of the reason for the high prices.”

The luxury housing market is still small in Punta Gorda, with only 25 total luxury properties available for sale in June2, compared to the city of Sarasota, where there are 417 properties with a much higher average list price of $2,485,9392.  To further compare the value in luxury properties, this waterfront four-bedroom and three-bathroom residence is estimated to cost upwards of $5 million if it were located in Sarasota, according to co-listing agent Dowling who also sells properties in Sarasota.

Completed in April of this year, the home is situated on a private cul-de-sac on Charlotte Harbour with unobstructed access to the Gulf of Mexico.  The 4,000-square-foot property features a private dock and 100 feet of waterfrontage, visible from nearly every room of the home. 

Each of the bedrooms are highlighted by floor-to-ceiling windows with access to the balcony. The master suite is complete with granite counters, a double vanity, marble floors and a soaking tub wrapped by a bay window.

Additional luxury amenities of the home include impact resistant windows, intercom system, home electronics, Sub Zero appliances, propane cooking and an elevator. An expansive, covered upper balcony allows for sweeping views of the bay and LED-lit pool. The residence boasts a private beach, fire pit, tiki hut and frequent dolphin sightings provide entertainment options, while the mosquito magnet system ensures bug-free outdoor enjoyment.

A Broker’s Open event will be hosted at the property on Friday, August 5 from 6—9 p.m. with a benefit raffle supporting ensemblenewSRQ.
