Take A Tour Of The $3 Million Florida Home That Comes With Its Own Private Island

If living steps away from the beach in a spot that has gorgeous weather almost year-round sounds ideal, you may want to check out a recently listed Florida home that comes with a unique perk. The property is in Summerland Key, Florida, located just 15 miles from the popular Key West, according to the Realtor listing. The home was built in 1999, but you wouldn't be able to tell from the interior, which has been renovated with a chic, minimal aesthetic and color palette that allows you to put your own twist on the space. Plus, when you're surrounded by such vibrant shades in the trees, plants, and flowers all around the property, why not allow those to take center stage?

The home is listed for $2.99 million and has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms. The listing states the home has 3,663 square feet of total space, although the property details mention a higher figure of 5,235 square feet, meaning the home likely has a developed basement that can't technically be counted in the home's square footage, but that will nonetheless be enjoyed by a future buyer.

One of the most unique details of this property, however, is that with its purchase, you also have the option to bump up the price a bit in order to also buy a nearby private island.

Read on to learn more about this stunning home — and the private island you could call yours were you to buy both.

A tropical paradise

The home's exterior is painted an eye-catching vibrant blue hue that stands apart from the smaller gray properties bordering the estate, as per the Realtor listing shots. The home sits on a 0.42-acre lot, but you don't need much more than that, considering the property is actually oceanfront. You're right on the Atlantic Ocean, and one of the listing photos even has two chairs set up in a serene spot where the future owner could take in the waves in privacy, right on their own property.

The wrap-around porch on the upper level offers the perfect spot for enjoying the Florida sunshine, and there's also a sizable covered patio on the second story, creating an abundance of stunning spaces from which to enjoy the Florida weather. The backyard also has a patio space bordering a pool for those times you'd prefer to take a dip right by the house rather than venturing the few extra steps to the beach. The entire grounds are a tropical paradise with hundreds of palm trees and lush flowers, as well as solar-powered lights and tiki lights illuminating the yard in the evening.

And, if you're looking to enjoy the gorgeous Florida weather on a more private beach, there's a unique option for that with this property — for an additional $500,000, a reduced price according to the listing, you can also buy Little Crab Key, a small island just under an acre in size that's located nearby.

The perfect blend of beachy and luxury

As the Realtor listing photos highlight, while the home's exterior is a vibrant shade, the interior is done in a neutral gray and white color palette. However, white planks along the ceiling and a few accent walls combined with an abundance of ceiling fans add a little twist, making the home customized to its Florida location.

The kitchen has a unique layout that's essentially split into two areas and connected with an arched walkway. One portion is located in the open concept living room area, creating a bit of an entertaining hub with several large islands topped with butcher block countertops. There's also an accent wall covered in blue tile in a bit of a scalloped pattern that gives a wave-like impression, bringing in those beachy vibes. Once you step through the doorway, you're greeted with the rest of the kitchen, including two fridges, a stove, and all the other necessary appliances tucked away from view of the main living space. The same blue tile carries through in the backsplash, and the entire space is open and bright thanks to the abundance of windows throughout.

And, if you're planning on having guests, you may be interested to know there seems to be almost a separate suite on another level, with another small kitchen, living area, and dining area, providing any future visitors with their own little haven.

Serene, airy sleeping quarters

While you'll likely be spending the majority of your day outdoors on this property, either enjoying the sandy beaches nearby or lounging on one of the deck or patio areas to soak in the sunshine, you do need a place to rest your head at the end of the day. As the Realtor listing photos demonstrate, this home definitely has serene sleeping quarters that can be customized to whatever your preferred aesthetic is.

The upper level of the home seems to contain most of the bedrooms, and they're all done in the same gray and white palette spotted in the rest of the home, allowing your furnishings to take center stage. The bedrooms all have large windows that allow natural light to flow in, and many also have French doors with glass panels that open out onto balcony areas, allowing you to start or end the day by enjoying some fresh air. While some bedrooms feature white planks along the ceiling for a beachy feel, others have slightly higher, sloped ceilings that make the room feel even more spacious, with ceiling fans added for staying comfortable in the Florida heat. The bathrooms are likewise done in a neutral yet chic aesthetic with marble tile in the showers and shower-bath combinations and the same gray and white color palette in the vanities.
