Legacy Island lies in the tranquil waters of the Caloosahatchee River, halfway between Lake Okeechobee and the Gulf of Mexico, in Fort Denaud, Florida. A private bridge transports you onto the nearly 14-acre island, home to more than three acres of pasture and four acres of tropical nursery that support an agricultural enterprise focused on pineapples and four varieties of dragon fruit (red, white, yellow and pink). The verdant terrain also yields healthy crops of bananas, mangoes, papayas and avocados. A terraced pond is stocked with tilapia and big mouth bass, adding to the commercial potential.

The property includes a two-bedroom, one-bathroom guesthouse constructed in termite-resistant Brazilian hardwood with living room, full kitchen and wraparound porches on two sides, as well as a 30-foot-by-40-foot drive-through steel barn, caretaker’s shed, garden shed and shooting range. There also are two wells with full island irrigation capacity, underground electric and a septic system in place. A golf cart, tiller, John Deere JD300 with forklift, riding lawnmower, and EZ GO electric/gas cart with dump bed are included in the purchase price to keep nursery operations running smoothly.

This quiet, agriculturally rich area of Florida is also steeped in history. Fort Denaud was established as a military post in 1838 during the Second Seminole War, and while all that remains of the fort itself is a historic marker, you can still see a few structures from the farming town that sprang up nearby in the 1850s. Less than a 10-minute drive away is LaBelle Nature Park, a lush, nine-acre hammock on a bluff along the river with numerous hiking trails winding among bromeliad-draped live oaks and tall cabbage palms. The vibrant beach community of Fort Myers sits just 40 minutes west for those occasions when you want a diversion from island life.
