It’s been a long time coming, but earlier today Dustin and I were finally able to put our eyes on the first finished product for Marina Villas at Cape Harbour. I looked back through my notes and he and I first visited the newly opened sales center for Marina Villas back in May of 2020 when even Phase 1 was still just a sheet of paper. That was almost 4 years ago! Since then while showing Funky Fish Houses or condo units we have seen it go through every stage of construction from clearing, to horizontal, to vertical. As you might imagine, a project of this magnitude takes a lot of planning, design, and permitting before any dirt ever gets moved. I would also assume that Hurricane Ian slowed things down a bit after it came through.
Today’s brokers open was put on by the staff at Marina Villas to give local brokers a first look at the three story townhome style units that they built right there on the South side of the development. This is one of three property types included in phase 1 in addition to the villas and two story townhomes. The unit we saw today is privately owned but is being leased back for the next couple of years by the developer for use as a model.
The fully furnished and decorated model is stunning. The views are what strike you first as you walk up the stairs to each level. The property looks out over the South Spreader waterway and preserve and comes with its own deeded dock. The layout is also ultra functional with general living space on the first two levels and the bedrooms on the third. All of the glass on the back of the unit, the light color palette, and the Southern rear exposure keep the space light and bright. The style has a modern beach feel with hints of farmhouse mixed in. A lot of time and money went into the trim and wall details including multiple areas utilizing board and batton. I could definitely see myself vacationing there or with the 2 car garage even calling it home. Unfortunately, the four units in this building are already spoken for.
The rest of phase 1 is still under construction with a few of the units still available for sale. From the looks of things today it sure appears that they are nearing completion with this phase. The horizontal construction for Phase II there on the Northwest side of the marina is also underway.

We’d love to help you find your piece of paradise.
