PAGE 6 of Cape Coral Waterfront Guide section

Weíve now covered the sections of Cape Coral that offer the direct sailboat access, letís now turn our attention to the areas behind the bridges.  In many cases, if you go this route you will quite simply get more home for the money.  So if you donít NEED the higher clearance, then you donít necessarily need to pay for it!  Thereís also some very pretty areas that went undeveloped for long periods of time due to being behind bridges, but which have now built out into very desirable neighborhoods of late model homes.  The downside being that they donít tend to be quite as high appreciation areas and in most, but not all instances, they tend to be at least a bit longer boating runs to open water. Thatís the tradeoff, but again, you get a nicer home because of it.  If you spend more time in the property and enjoying the waterfront setting from your pool deck overlooking the canal, perhaps this may be better suited to your needs anyway. 

I like to think of it as the following example.  If you are spending, letís say $500k: With that budget you can have a wonderful, short boating run on a direct sailboat access parcel of land thatís worth $325k of that figure. Letís also assume it has a swimming pool and a fairly decent boat dock and lift, accounting for another $50k of that value. That leaves only $125,000 of value in the house.  This of course means that you are getting a very modest home actually, in order to accomplish such a great boating location! Alternatively, on the opposite end of the spectrum, you could have a beautiful brand new house with a pool thatís everything you want in a home, but itís behind a couple bridges and itís a long boating run out (ex: 45 minutes). Granted these are the rather extreme examples, and most everyone naturally seeks that happy balance somewhere in the middle of a nice house and a reasonable run, but this just goes to show how itís often a matter of being behind a bridge and a little bit of run time to get the best house for a reasonable price point.  Just a matter of whatís most important to you!

Now whether or not you NEED sailboat access or not depends largely on the size boat you are looking to accommodate. As already mentioned in the section about bridge heights, they tend to vary from about 7í to 11.25í in height.  So if your boating plans call for a large or particularly tall vessel, behind a bridge may simply not be an option for you anyway.  This depends entirely on the type of vessel you have in mind, but in very general terms most of the boats behind the bridges do not exceed around 32-34 feet or so.  Again, it totally depends on the specifics of the vessel and itís clearance though.

In this section, we will cover the following areas located behind the bridges:

Being added shortly:

  • Lake Finestarre
  • West of Del Prado Blvd, below Veterans Pkwy
  • West of Del Prado Blvd, North of Veterans Pkwy
  • Pelican Blvd and Santa Barbara area
  • The long boating run portions of SW Cape Coral (North of Spreader, SW 17th, etc)
  • NW Cape Coral

Letís now go over the various neighborhoods, beginning with the most premium locations and working our way down in price points as we go. We will start with an area of Cape Coral referred to as the ĎRose Garden.í
