Burnt Store Marina Real Estate
Burnt Store Marina is considered one of Southwest Florida’s premier boating communities, located on the border of Punta Gorda and Cape Coral on Burnt Store Road near Charlotte Harbor. Legend has it this master-planned community draws its name from the burning of an iconic trading post in the 1850s after a skirmish between the Seminoles and the settlers. Fact or fanciful story, the colorful name helps distinguish this 626-acre gated community which is known for its marina and array of amenities offering something for everyone.
Established in the 1970s with newly constructed homes built up until the present, Burnt Store Marina offers a variety of architectural styles and options including single-family homes, sprawling estates, condos, and villas. Prospective buyers can choose from condos located directly on the golf course, homes fronting canals or properties situated along the exterior wall. Scattered lot communities in established areas are a new construction option where a builder can work with a buyer to build a home in a select community with landscaping, mature trees and neighbors already in place.
