Please see Supplement for a full description of the propertyThis rare property offering lies over 4 miles from the Overseas Highway, providing unmatched privacy, peace and quiet for its owners, set amidst a native landscape on open water that is almost unobtainable in the entire Florida Keys. The western horizon consists of small uninhabited mangrove keys over a mile away, creating priceless sunset views that can never be altered by development. Over 550' of natural shoreline, rimmed by mangroves that have been meticulously manicured to protect the waterfront, frames the million-dollar views of the open water. There is an intimate little beach tucked into the mangroves, providing a perfect launch site for kayaks and paddle-boards. The dock offers further access to the pristine waters of the Keys - equally serving up both ocean and backcountry experiences. Personal watercraft and boats can be moored on the floating dockage units included with this offering. After fun on the water, step off the beach into your own private tiki bar and sunning deck. A coral stone path leads you to the existing home, featuring an open updated floor plan with almost 2500 square feet of living space which can be configured as a 2 or 3 bedroom house. There are 2 full baths featuring finishes of coquina stone, Brazilian slate, mahogany, and premium fixtures. The kitchen features high-end stainless appliances, a custom wine rack, hand-finished cabinetry, travertine and granite surfaces, and a lighted tier above to display personal collectibles or art. There is an abundance of custom millwork found in the interior and exterior of the home consisting of approximately a quarter-million dollars' worth of unique river-recovered old growth "sinker" heart cypress. The house is connected by fiber optic cable to the Internet at 1000 mb speeds and includes all custom-installed rack-mounted audio/video equipment currently on hand. There are a dozen discreetly positioned cameras for monitoring the property outside the home and a perimeter security alarm system that is accessible by smartphone apps. Environmentally-conscious buyers will be interested in the 70,000 gallons of rainwater storage capacity on-site, available for household and landscape water needs. The forthcoming FKAA water and sewer connections (sewer slated for 2019 and water by 2020) will add to the flexibility of options and peace of mind for the homeowner. On the ground level is an enclosed garage, workshop, tackle room, and storage room with space for storing vehicles and boats. Just a short stroll from the house is a multi-purpose "tiki hut" custom built structure currently used as a seasonal home for an RV. The offer also includes a pair of discreetly located 40-foot steel shipping containers used for secured seasonal storage at a "high and dry" elevation of 7-feet above sea level. The home is accessed through 2 separate gated entrances off of a small private road. The home is kept comfortable with a 5-ton central air conditioning unit and a 2.5-ton mini-split unit. Utility expense and property tax histories are available upon request. Finally, and perhaps the single most uniquely appealing aspect of this 8.4 acre property, the Sparsely Settled Zoning allows the ability to be granted permits to build a single larger primary home or multiple smaller cottages adjacent to the existing structure, thus creating an unrivaled opportunity to own a world-class estate or a rare "family compound" to realize your own personal vision for this very special property in Paradise.
