Welcome to Tierra Verde.

Among this property’s most outstanding features is its location on Tierra Verde's Grand Canal, widely considered to be the premier boating water on the Gulf Coast.

This extra wide canal was designed by the Army Corps of Engineers to host yachts of almost any size on deep, protected water.

The canal provides quick access to the Gulf of Mexico at one end, with no bridges, so you are out in the open water after leaving your dock in just moments, and at the other end of the canal, you'll find a vibrant resort marina, offering fuel, sundries, restaurants, hotel, swimming pool, and more.

The Grand Canal is a boater’s paradise.

Secluded lot with exquisite tropical landscaping.

Featuring countless flowering trees and plants, palms, fruit trees, winding pathways, and an expansive lawn. It’s one of the finest landscapes on the island, like having Sunken Gardens in your own backyard.
Set back slightly from the waterfront, the home was designed to provide privacy for its residents, who can enjoy the fabulous resort-like yard or lounge by the pool, completely out of sight from the other Grand Canal residents and boaters passing by, yet, from the main entertaining and living areas, you get to enjoy water views through a tropical canopy.

The kitchen also features a separate wet bar and tons of storage, and the large, walk-in butler’s pantry rounds out the kitchen’s sense of luxury and day-to-day practicality.

Tierra Verde's Grand Canal Lifestyle.

The newly refurbished dock features two slips, each with its own lift, one rated at 10,000 pounds and the other at 13,000 pounds. The dock is also the perfect place from which to launch Kayaks to explore the Grand Canal and surrounding waterways, and two Hurricane kayaks are included with the purchase of the home. The gorgeous Gorbon 295 Hinkley Style Picnic Yacht may be available for purchase, as well.
Besides the supreme boating water of the Grand Canal, the island of Tierra Verde offers its residents a lifestyle that no other local area can match. With a variety of restaurants, shops, and services right here on the island, life here is outstanding. For beach lovers, Tierra Verde is the gateway to Ft. DeSoto, with miles of pristine white sand beaches, multi-purpose trails, and mangrove tunnels for exceptional kayaking, and then just to the west you've got the chain of barrier islands that make up the gulf beaches.
