Punta Gorda Isles (PGI) was developed as a deed-restricted, waterfront & golf community. All homes, with the exception of a few located on St. Andrews Golf Course, are on wide canals (no less than 100') with access to Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico. This is truly a boater's paradise. Where else can you live with you boat 20' from your back door and have quick access to the best boating in Florida. The City of Punta Gorda maintains the seawalls and canals, which is a huge benefit to the local homeowners.
There is a variety of amenities and a wide price range of resale homes, condos and new construction available in Punta Gorda Isles. Time to the Harbor, age of the home, view of the water and size of seawall all contribute to the difference in pricing. Home sizes range from modest, 1,800 sqft bungalows to 4,000+ sqft manses built on double lots.
Punta Gorda Isles first development started in 1957 and different areas were opened over the years. The last area to open did so in 1981. There was never a mandatory build time so there are still vacant lots scattered throughout the old and new area. The developer, PGI, Inc. finished their development in the early 1980's, therefore all vacant land is private
