Welcome to New Latitude ... The premier Captiva Island beach front estate. The home features six bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms, one half bathroom and a half bath on the beach level adjacent to the outdoor shower and game area. New Latitude is the perfect home for family gatherings and once-in-a-lifetime destination vacation. As you pull up and drive through the winding drive, you are welcomed by native and tropical foliage on either side. Up the stairway to the main entrance of the estate opens into your private courtyard style, saltwater, heated pool with two guest suites that open onto the pool area. Each guest suite has an en-suite bathroom and private balcony overlooking the gardens. You can't help but get swept off your feet gazing at the endless views of the Gulf of Mexico from the rows of 8 foot high sliding glass doors. You experience a gulf view from nearly every room in the house!
Open the sliding doors from the pool into the spacious living area with comfortable seating, 70" wall mounted smart TV. The living area is part of the great room with a high end dining table and open kitchen with new solid surface, stone countertops, ultra high end appliances, coffee bar with a Keurig and Traditional Coffee Pot as well as a second refrigerator/freezer for additional storage. The main level of the home also features a media room/den/sixth bedroom with another 70" wall mounted smart TV, and sectional sleeper sofa with en-suite bath. Follow the hallway around to your private fitness room with several professional grade pieces of equipment, free weights and half bath. There is also a wall mounted TV to enjoy as you have your morning workout. The best feature about the main level of New Latitude is the deck off the great room stretching from one side of the home to the other. This area features some of the best views you will find of the Gulf of Mexico anywhere on Captiva Island. Enjoy a meal, morning cup of coffee or evening cocktail from the ample seating areas and additional dining table.
Up the stairs or private elevator, is the second level of New Latitude. On the North end sits a king master suite with full bath and huge glass slider doors which open to the second level balcony. Here you are greeted by both the morning glow on the water and the breathtaking panoramic sunsets. Follow the hallway South and you come to the perfect room for children or younger adults with a full size bunk beds and a twin bed with a trundle. There is another full bathroom just off this bedroom as well that boasts a bathtub and shower featuring more direct views of the water. On the South end of the estate is your second private master suite with another ultra comfortable king sized bed, wall mounted smart TV, personal washer/dryer and en-suite bathroom. This suite also has another additional outdoor private shower which enjoys spectacular views out to the Gulf of Mexico.
The second level balcony has a unique spiral staircase which leads to your private sun deck and views out to the Gulf of Mexico that go on seemingly forever. The sunset views are awe-inspiring to say the least ... you have to see it for yourself to fully grasp the beauty. In the morning, if you choose to venture out early enough, you can watch the sun rise from the waters on the bay to the East which are in your sights from this highest viewing point on the island.
As we didn't want to leave any detail out, the beach level of the home has a ping pong table, foosball, bag toss, swings like you would find at Caribbean restaurants, a new high-end spa hot tub, out door shower, beach bathroom and a short, winding path which leads directly to the private beach. The beach side of the property has a manicured landscape grassy yard perfect for family games of frisbee, bag toss or to just sit in the beach side chairs and read a book or daydream. There are also tropical fruit trees lining the South side of the property further enhancing and encapsulating the Tropical Florida Beach Experience.
