Seagate Development Group LLC is developing a 9.98-acre gated enclave called Hill Tide Estates on the southern tip of Boca Grande for a select group of just 20 homeowners who cannot resist the allure of the hill tide phenomenon and the otherworldly fishing it affords.
Currently in the final stages of securing entitlement approval for its 20 single-family homesites, Seagate envisions a site plan that will include custom designed luxury residences on brick pavered streets overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, Boca Grande Pass and Charlotte Harbor.
The Hill Tide Estates property is the only site on Boca Grande that overlooks Boca Grande Pass. The south side of the property is bordered by a state park and offers unobstructed views of Cayo Costa, a relaxed barrier island that is only accessible by boat and known for its excellent fishing, oak-palm hammocks, mangrove swamps, and beaches.
Boca Grande Pass is situated at the mouth of Charlotte Harbor between the southern tip of Gasparilla Island and the northern tip of Cayo Costa. Approximately 300 yards wide, the pass is a destination in a tarpon migration pattern that spans roughly 100 miles of Florida coastline and is acknowledged by fishing enthusiasts as the Holy Grail of tarpon fishing. With an average depth of 80-feet, Boca Grande Pass is the deepest natural pass in the State of Florida and serves as the gateway from the Gulf of Mexico to Charlotte Harbor.
Due to the unique geography of Boca Grande Pass, the new and full moon phases in May and June produce strong tides known as hill tides that flush millions of crab out of Charlotte Harbor and into the pass. Thousands of tarpon congregate the inside of Boca Grande Pass, known as the hill, and wait for the powerful tides to flush the crab down. When a hill tide occurs, the tarpon fishing experience is beyond compare.
Seagate recently announced it is developing plans for its first furnished estate model at Hill Tide Estates. The first model is being designed by John Cooney at Stofft Cooney Architects. As planned, the model will include four bedrooms, a study, four-and-a-half baths, a three-car garage, a custom pool and spa, and an outdoor living area with an outdoor kitchen. Custom ceiling details and a Control 4 Home Automation System are just two of the features included in the design. The model will be on a homesite offering Hill Tide’s views of Charlotte Harbor, Boca Grande Pass and the Gulf of Mexico.
Seagate Development Group LLC is a full-service commercial and residential development and construction company and a provider of commercial property management services.
In addition to developing Hill Tide Estates, Seagate is developing Windward Isle, a gated enclave of 28 single-family luxury homes just south of Orange Blossom Drive on Airport-Pulling Road in North Naples. Two furnished models have been completed and are open for viewing and purchase at Windward Isle. Six floor plans by Weber Design Group and RG Designs showcase the community’s coastal West Indies architectural style. Three additional floor plans are in development and expected to be released within the next 30-45 days.
Seagate is also a preferred builder at Quail West and celebrated the grand opening of its furnished Oakmont estate model the last weekend in April.
The 5,524-square-foot estate residence features an architectural design by RG Designs and showcases an interior by Ruta Menaghlazi, Senior Interior Designer at Freestyle Interiors. The Oakmont’s open floor plan includes an additional 2,931 square feet of outdoor spaces under roof. Windows throughout the home’s living areas create a light-filled ambiance and provide views of an infinity edge pool and spa surrounded by a deck finished with a low maintenance, weather resistant composite material that is cantilevered over the pool. The Oakmont is priced at $4.7 million, including furnishings.
Seagate has started construction of its furnished 5,693-square-foot Pine Valley estate and 5,464-square-foot Calusa estate models at Quail West. The Pine Valley is scheduled for completion in January 2017. The Calusa is being built on a southern exposure homesite on Quail West’s Lakes golf course.
