Amazing Opportunity! Nicely Renovated Waterfront Home for Sale on Lighthouse Way Sanibel Island
The property at 488 Lighthouse Way is available for sale! This is a rare opportunity to purchase a waterfront home on one of Florida's favorite islands and on one of the island's most sought-after private streets.
488 Lighthouse Way is located on the island's east end on the bay side. Just as the street name implies, it is not too far from Lighthouse Beach Park. Owning waterfront property in Sanibel is highly desired by many but only obtained by a few as land mass and shoreline is limited. The views from this home right on the island's northeast shore offer panoramic water sightlines. The home is right on the water nothing between the shoreline and the property. You can walk out the back door and enjoy kayaking, paddleboarding, swimming, fishing, beachcombing, shelling, and much more.
The home is just as impressive as its location. Built in 1991, the home has been nicely updated and upgraded in several areas. It has been meticulously cared for inside and out. The exterior features new Hardi-board siding, a metal roof installed in 2020, and new impact windows and doors. The inside of the home is even more impressive with a newly renovated kitchen that includes brand new quartz counters, high-end Sub-zero, Wolf, and Cove appliances, and a Grohe faucet. The main bathroom suite is also nicely renovated with new vanity, Grohe fixtures, and quartz counter. Other new home upgrades include new central vacuuming, new fans, interior and exterior paint, LED light fixtures, and an HVAC unit. All of the new work and plenty of space are included in this 3,286-square-foot home on a 0.29-acre lot. The most notable features, however, are the multiple decks including the roof line deck and the private pool allowing you to enjoy even more about the location.
This home is in a great location near the Sanibel Marina, a great place to keep your boat or grab a bite to eat at an island favorite restaurant, Gramma Dots which will be open on October 1, 2023. It is also just a ten-minute walk or a very short bike ride to Dixie Beach or Lighthouse Beach Park. The Sanibel Causeway is less than a five-minute drive to get you on and off the island.
