A remarkable beachfront residence has sold for $6.5 million — the highest-priced villa or condo sale ever recorded on Hideaway Beach. Located at 1000 Royal Marco Way #6, the waterfront property is nestled along the community’s crescent-shaped shoreline. Cathy Rogers, of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s Marco Island office, represented the seller; Jim Prange, of the company’s Marco Island office, brought the buyer.
Rogers has consistently ranked in the top 1.5% of REALTORS® in the nation, achieving over one-half billion dollars in career sales volume. In 2022, she closed two other record-breaking sales on Hideaway Beach: In March, 202 South Beach Drive was the highest-priced single-family home sale ever recorded at $11.875 million; and in May, 992 Royal Marco Way was the most expensive lot sale of all time at $6 million.
The stylishly renovated three-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath villa is the latest sale to shatter records on Hideaway Beach. It boasts three levels of luxury living surrounded by walls of glass that highlight endless Gulf views. Guests are welcomed into an elegantly designed interior and light-filled layout framed by 30-foot ceilings in the great room featuring a spectacular floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. A gourmet kitchen is crafted with imported Italian Snaidero cabinets, Sub-Zero refrigerator and drawers and induction stove adjacent to a dining room and terrace offering additional outdoor kitchen. An enchanting owners’ suite is lined by a private terrace overlooking awe-inspiring water views. The lower-level lanai delivers an exceptional entertaining experience showcasing a custom-made bar area, built-in cabinets, outdoor kitchen and several seating areas complete with a carefully curated wine room.
Five terraces capture panoramic vistas and stunning sunset scenes. This sophisticated home is just steps to a private pool and the emerald waters of the Gulf. The property is equipped with a three-car garage and three-story elevator.
Hideaway Beach is a sought-after coastal community featuring two miles of beaches, a nine-hole golf course, tennis and pickleball courts, croquet, bocce ball, pro shop, fitness center and beach club with a lounge and three dining areas.
“This outstanding villa offers a serene island sanctuary with uninterrupted Gulf-front views in an exclusive gated enclave,” said Rogers. “The record sale price demonstrates the continued demand for luxury properties and for beachfront real estate in particular.”
