#328 “Paddle to the Sea” is located on private Useppa Island, upon one the highest points of elevation in Lee County, providing for bird’s-eye sunset views of the water, with 24′ of elevation at the first of three living floors. This commanding 5-bedroom, 4-bath home just underwent a thorough renovation, revitalizing it to the point of feeling like new, while bringing all elements up to current Florida hurricane code requirements. New kitchen, bathrooms, roof, generator, interior finishes, exterior siding and trim, impact windows/doors are a couple notable improvements among many made within the last year, a detailed list of which is provided in the photo gallery. Offered furnished, with three golf carts, this is an ultimate family escape ready to move into and enjoy with pride.

Enter the front door beyond a large live-oak tree standing sentry alongside the eastern walkway, and you’ll find yourself in the foyer, with the option to go down to the guest rooms, or up to the primary living room & kitchen. Four guest rooms and two full bathrooms occupy the entire first living floor, each with access to the lowest level of a 2-story wrap around screen porch which encircles the home. The second floor contains the Great Room with its high ceilings, a fireplace with ventless propane setting, a new kitchen with all new appliances, bar with beverage cooler and powder room, all surrounded by new impact rated French doors which lead out to the wrap around screened porch. The dominating tropical views of Useppa Island and water to the west are in full effect at this level, offering a picturesque backdrop throughout. The views only get better as you go up to the 3rd-floor Master Suite, which is among the highest living space on Useppa Island, and wrapped in 360 degrees of windows. There is no bad view from the Master, and it possesses a private open balcony to the west, with a remarkable sunset perspective.

Below the living space exists a massive open-air screened & decked area perfect for games, grilling, chilling and storage. Included is a large workshop/utility room with benches and plenty of space for tools, toys and fishing gear. With an enclosed stairwell offering direct access to the home’s interior, you’ll have easy access to/from the living space to watch a big game while grilling, or to access one of the three included Club Car golf carts. This ground floor space is at 14′ of elevation, offering potential to enclose as air-conditioned living space if the need arises, or tied into a private pool, if one was to be installed at the rear of the home.

An island-home possessing the qualities found at “Paddle to the Sea” is a challenge to replicate in Florida. The entirety of the parcel is outside the floodway in an “X” flood-zone, yet there are views of water and you’re within a short golf cart ride to your boat at the Useppa marina. Completely renovated with top-notch finishes and design, all of the heavy lifting has been taken care of for its new owner, who can focus on their new island lifestyle.
