Southwest Florida Living

 

Cape Coral - Sailing at Sunset

 

Cape Coral is the 3rd largest city in Florida in terms of land mass with nearly 115 square miles of residential and commercial space. Over 55% of its population is under 44, so the city is family oriented, schools are important, and the quality of life is exceptional. Both the Midpoint Memorial and Cape Coral bridges give quick access to the shopping centers of Lee County located on the south shore. And, The Cape has long been known as a boater's and fisherman's paradise. Surrounding the Cape Coral Yacht Club at Redfish Point is the original heart of the City. Here you'll find a sand beach on the Caloosahatchee River, a city park, and public boat launch. Near by the Antiqua, Bimini and Rubicon Canals are where you’ll find homes fronting the River where true sailboat water access is available.

 

The Cape Beach

 

Located just 10 miles west of I-75, the Cape is a large peninsula west of Ft. Myers and the Beach on the Gulf of Mexico. It is a self contained community with all the amenities of more well known cities in Southwest Florida. The Cape's recent expansion is prolific, especially to the west and north. Because of extensive boating and Gulf water accessibility, many of the marina communities like Cape Harbour, Tarpon Point and Burnt Store Marina are flourishing. Nearly everywhere in the Cape real estate market you’ll find some form of new home development in progress. Coral Lakes and Sandoval are just two examples that come to mind.

 

Most established neighborhoods like Cape Royal exude "Olde Florida" charm, while the newer areas open to the Cape's fresh sea breezes and endless days of sunshine. With all the recent real estate development, you'll find plenty of canals, parks, sidewalks, bike trails, boat ramps, schools and shopping. So, no matter what type of lifestyle and residence you want, from a second home or condo, to new family starters or that special elegant estate, the Cape Coral real estate market has it all.
