FORT MYERS — The sale of a home built on what was once a Civil War-era plantation set a landmark high for price for Fort Myers in the last 10 years. Shaddelee Plantation, a fully furnished, 9,200-square-foot contemporary home on the Caloosahatchee River, recently sold for $7 million.
The five-bedroom, six-bathroom home was built in 2017 by German builder Klaus Kermel, who builds five-star luxury hotels in Europe. The home was built to withstand hurricane-force conditions with 18-inch thick exterior walls and impact UV-rated window and door glass, according to a statement.
The listing agent was Ted Stout, broker of Realmark Realty. “This is a one-of-a-kind property built by a master craftsman and couldn’t be reproduced at this price,” Stout says in the statement. The buyers were represented by Aaron Wolf and Trae Zipper.
Located off McGregor Boulevard at 5648 Shaddelee Lane, the estate has an apparent European influence from the exterior with a white façade and minimalist landscaping highlighting the modern design, the release states. The home features a wide riverfront view from its 55,000-gallon infinity edge double pool, spa, fire bowls and wet bar. The property has 103 feet of seawall and a private dock on the river.
