About the Property

3 bedrooms and 2 baths, sleeps up to 8 people

Located on the open water of Big Pine Key, this is a tranquil and natural property just 30 minutes from Key West. This property has an unparalleled and fantastic open water sunrise view of nearby mangrove islands and the old Bahia Honda railway bridge. Located on Spanish Harbor with easy access to both the Gulf and Atlantic alike, this property caters to salt water enthusiasts, fishermen, sun lovers and folks that just desire peaceful enjoyment in a wonderful hunk of paradise. Diminutive Endangered Key Deer wander around freely blending right in with the natural surroundings.
Open concept, well maintained, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated elevated concrete stilt home with 2 elevated covered verandahs. 3 bedrooms, two of which are on the open water with french doors to the verandah, 2 baths, a large well equipped and modern kitchen and a great living room. Large coconut palm lined clean concrete patio waterside with cleats, seawall and fender boards allows shallow draft dockage subject to tide fluctuations.

All this with a view that just can't be beat. Almost 1/2 acre of land right on the open water.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: Originally from Ohio I moved our family here before the children grew up because it is the opposite of cold and grey. In the decades since I have grown to love the natural beauty of things in, on and around the water.

Why the Owner Chose Big Pine Key, FL, USA:
We had wintered in the area for 2 years and picked this location because of good neighbors, easy water access and a quiet street that was still near enough to US1 to have easy access to necessities. Honestly, the view from the house across the water is the best I've ever seen down here. There's not a house in the Keys that I've ever visited that has a better view. See for yourself and decide.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The view. Almost a half acre which is quite large for the Keys. Lots of privacy fenced parking for friends , boat trailers and good times. Both blue water and backwater access right outside the door. Did I mention the view?
