Property Description

"La Maison Jaune" In the early 1900's, some of the country's most prominent families traveled by rail car to Gasparilla Island to escape society and enjoy the great outdoors in this special coastal setting. Eventually some of these families purchased land and the development of our historic cottage colony began. Henry DuPont was among these early settlers and it is said he specifically chose this site above all others to construct the 'DuPont Beach House' in 1924. In almost 100 years only 4 families have resided in the home. The current owners aptly named the home "La Maison Jaune" - The Yellow House- as the DuPont family was of French descent. The enormous lot is guarded by majestic Banyan trees and is fully enclosed for ultimate privacy. The exquisite side yard contains a large open pool, brick paver patios, summer kitchen, gas fire pit and beautifully maintained grounds, perfect for quaint gatherings or large parties. This entire environment fills with natural sunlight which makes it an ideal cozy retreat on chilly days. The stately 8 bedroom, 9 bath home underwent a major restoration in 1999 and the main house has recently been improved with new bathrooms, an updated kitchen, new appliances, Hardy siding, Anderson (architectural series) impact resistant windows, a new elevator and many new mechanical systems. This is a rare opportunity to own one of the most renowned historic properties in Boca Grande which is walking distance to town and just steps from the beach without communion with public right of ways and pedestrian traffic.
