Sanibel Island, Fla. — (April, 2014) — Thanks to an upcoming auction, the once idyllic dream of owning a private island now may be within reach. And this island comes complete with an 1,850 square-foot, tri-level custom designed home.
Fisher Auction Co. is preparing to host an online-only auction from 10 a.m. April 22 through 3 p.m. April 24 for the 4.6-acre Crescent Island.
The picturesque island, which is located a short distance off the southern tip of Pine Island near the St. James marina, restaurants and shops, is surrounded by the waters of Pine Island Sound and San Carlos Bay, across from Ding Darling Nature Preserve on Sanibel Island.
The island includes a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home with spectacular views from every vantage point. The beautifully-appointed home offers a living room with fireplace, kitchen with stainless-steel appliances, distressed tung and grove pine flooring and tile bathrooms.
The island also includes a private dock, deep artesian well, state-of-the-art septic system, full perimeter and interior electronic surveillance and separate motor house with two propane storage tanks and generators.

“It is truly a rare opportunity when a private island is sold via the auction process,” said Lamar Fisher, President and CEO of Fisher Auction Company. “Given its location and custom home on-site, we feel this property will draw an abundance of attention from prospective buyers from around the country.”
Fisher Auction Company has previously handled numerous high-profile auctions including the Miami Arena, former Versace Mansion, numerous private islands and multi-million dollar mansions of business executives, celebrities and professional athletes.
