Property description

ElE Shack is a property located in the middle of a deer preserve. The Keys deer are federally protected and though authorities urge human trespassers of this amazing natural retreat to avoid contact, the deer don't seem to be nearly as stressed as they wander through your yard. I'v even been woken by one which nuzzled my ear while I was sunning by the canal.

The house is constantly being upgraded. New beds, linens, HD Flat screen with bluray / surround sound, Uverse 450, new furniture, appliances, wide plank wood floors and brand new kitchen. Everything has been custom built so that cleaning is a snap. This is one house that has no dust under the beds or cabinets!

Location

Bird & Wildlife watching, photography. Some of the best diving and snorkeling is only a 10 minute boat ride from our house.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I am a photographer / programmer residing in Miami Beach. This is the first home I have owned. When I saw it I knew that I loved it. Prior to working as a photographer I was a carpentry contractor on high profile projects for the likes of Harrison Ford, Cynthia Gregory, Lena Horn, etc ... and will be applying those skills with the help of my girlfriend (who is a designer) to create a luxurious retreat for our guests as well as ourselves.

Why the Owner Chose Big Pine Key:
Quite Simple - There is no other place like it in the world. If you want to be in the midst of nature, among wildlife, clean air, beautiful sunsets, then this is your place.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
For me, its all about relaxing. However if you want to have a little fun with your human counterparts, Key West is only 30 minutes drive away. Warning, even one weekend at this property and you may not be able to face the rat race again.
