Naples Home Seeking Record $295M

A sprawling Gordon Pointe compound in Naples, Florida, has hit the market with a price tag set to shatter real estate records. Listed at a cool $295 million, this luxurious property floats the possibility of becoming the country’s most opulent residential sale, a title currently held by the $238 million New York City penthouse acquired by billionaire Ken Griffin in 2019.

The genesis of Gordon Pointe is steeped in entrepreneurial vision. Back in the halcyon days of 1985, financier John Donahue, alongside his wife, Rhodora, cast their sights on a 4.3-acre slice of untamed land, investing a modest $1 million. Their legacy, now in the custodial hands of their 13 children and 84 grandchildren, encompasses an impressive near 60-acre holdfast within the enclaved grandeur of Naples’s Port Royal community. The compound, a beacon of family unity, now seeks new custodians as the Donahues look to diverge paths with a portion of their estate.

This nine-acre sanctuary, a confluence of opulence and serenity, spans three residences, a 231-foot yacht basin, and a dock that can entertain up to six maritime vessels. At its heart, an 11,500-square-foot main mansion captivates with six bedrooms and a screened-in swimming pool. The narrative of expansion is marked by the addition of two more residences in 1990 and 2013, extending the invitation of luxury to guests, among them the presidential virtues of George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush.

Commanding a private peninsula with over 700 feet of beach frontage on one side and another 950 feet on Naples Bay, Gordon Pointe luxuriates in boundless possibilities, from a majestic single dwelling to a more subdivided, nuanced approach to luxury living. The property represents more than just a haven of extravagance; it is a legacy, an exclusive tableau for the next chapter of discerning opulence.
