Stock Development Has Opened New Sanibel Model At Hidden Harbor


Stock Development has opened The Sanibel, a beautifully furnished new model at Hidden Harbor, a waterfront boating community in South Fort Myers.


The Sanibel is a four-bedroom/four and one-half bath harbor-front home with 3,080 square feet under air and 4,847 total square feet, including the covered entry, attached three-car garage and spacious outdoor living area.


This open floorplan features a great room design that is perfectly designed to take advantage of Hidden Harbor’s outdoor, waterfront lifestyle. The back of the home features walls of stacked sliding glass doors and French Doors that open to an amazing outdoor living area with spectacular harbor views. It includes a pool, a covered living room, an optional outdoor kitchen with bar seating, a pool bath and a boat and pool storage room.


This waterfront model provides homeowners with a boat dock option to take advantage of Hidden Harbor’s Gulf of Mexico water access.       

Inside the Sanibel, there is a large island-style kitchen with a dining room that overlooks the outdoor living area through stacked sliding glass doors. It is adjacent to spacious great room, which is bathed in natural light from four stacked sliding glass doors leading directly to the pool area. There is the formal study and the master suite offers his and hers walk-in closets and each of the three guest suites has a full bath and a walk-in closet.


The interior of the model was completed by Cherie Clark Interiors.


“We designed the interior of the Sanibel model to capture the tropical setting that we all embrace here in Southwest Florida,” said Sheri Sirmans, Lead Designer for the project.  “The location lends itself to boating/outdoor enthusiasts who utilize the immediate environment for entertainment and lifestyle.”


They chose a color scheme of seafoam green, mushroom and pale yellow to keep the interior light and bright.  Tropical floral patterns give a feeling of being in a high end resort in the Caribbean, while the accessories have nautical accents and include a painted mural in the powder bath to include a large octopus. 


“The master bath has faux finished walls to appear as water from the Caribbean,” said Sirmans.  “Tile work includes seafoam glass accents and stone pebbles imitating the beach.  The overall feel of the model represents a spa atmosphere which comforts and soothes the soul and acts as an escape from our busy lives.”




At Hidden Harbor three additional furnished models are open and two more are under construction. A total of 12 floorplans are offered, including several new floorplans priced from the $400s. These three and four bedroom homes feature from 2,327 to more than 3,100 square feet of living area.


“We have three new floorplans priced from just the mid-$400s, providing even more options for homebuyers,” said Stock. “These plans feature the same beautiful Contemporary Coastal architecture as our original plans and the community clubhouse.”


Hidden Harbor is one of the last new home communitues south of Tampa Bay with Gulf access and exciting news was announced this summer.


The community recently received approval from South Florida Water Management District that removes all boat size restrictions for vessels moored at Hidden Harbor's private boat slips.


“If you've been searching for a luxury boating community with direct gulf access and exceptional amenities, Hidden Harbor now truly has it all, including the opportunity to moor your boat of any length in one of 52 private docks,” said Stock.“This is a nautical paradise. Residents may boat, kayak and canoe directly from their personal boat dock.”






Homeowers with boat docks have access to the Gulf of Mexico by way of the Ten Mile Canal and Estero Bay. The private harbor is a sport fisherman's dream. It is a haven for manatees and provides access to The Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail, a 190-mile marked canoe and kayak trail that meanders through the coastal waters and inland tributaries of Lee County, Florida. Common species in the backwaters of Estero Bay and the surrounding creeks include snook, trout, redfish, tarpon, sheepshead, sharks, snapper, jacks and black drum.


The 4,484 square foot community clubhouse has been completed and is situated on a premium waterfront site at the entrance to the harbor. The fitness center is equipped with new state-of-the art equipment, a comfortably furnished lounge area and a club room that is available for social events.


“This beautiful amenity complex features waterviews on both sides in an amazing tropical setting,” said Brian Stock, CEO of Stock Development. “Outside is a resort style pool with a fire pit, a barbeque area and a beautifully furnished sundeck. There is also a kayak launch and open green space to enjoy the beautiful Southwest Florida weather.”
