Want to Own Your Own Island?? Now you Can ...for $12 Million!!! East Sisiter Rock in The Florida Keys is Now for Sale!!

Who hasn’t dreamed of owning their own island? Well, now you can, and it’s in our very own backyard.  The Iconic East Sister Rock Island in the Florida Keys is now for sale.

Iconic Sister Rock Island, now Available for $12M
I could really get my Hemingway on, in this exotic retreat, long a landmark or shall I say seamark, as you navigate into Marathon and Key Vaca.

It's been getting a lot of hype and press, since coming on the Market a few days ago, and why shouldn't it??  The 3 bedroom, 2 bath home is situated on 1.4 acres and is about a quarter mile off the shore of Marathon, here in the Keys. It boasts over 5000 sq ft of living area, with about 2700 sq ft of veranda, helicopter pad, a pool and two docks.
Reachable only by boat or helicopter, the Island is nestled amongst a coral reef, making it great for impromptu snorkeling and fishing. Perfectly situated 2 hours from Miami and about 45 minutes from Key West, and a quick boat ride to Marathon for provisions. The house has a multitude of sliding glass doors and also features a veranda which wraps around the entire house, providing views and sublime sea breezes all the way around.

Klaus Meckler built the island by digging a moat from the coral rock and making a plateau that rises 15 feet. The house was concrete poured and rests on 75 pilings drilled into the coral rock. The current owners - who bought the island in 1995 from Meckler, made the island green by installing a wind turbine and solar panels. Water is taken from rainwater that is filtered and stored for use.

Imagine watching the sun rise from the veranda, snorkeling and fishing all day and winding down with a glass of wine or your favorite Caribbean libation, some stone crabs and lobster that you caught mere hours ago right THERE at the Island, and watching the sun set from the hammocks swaying among the trees. I have motored by in my boat many times…it’s worth the hype!  It is one of just 9 private islands in the Keys.
A long time rental property, the estate, is now available for purchase, and is listed for $12 million.
Talk about Your Island in the Stream!!! OK yes I know, another shameless Hemingway Plug...what can I say... I work next door to the Pilar and visit it almost every day. Hemingway is THE Apex preditor when it comes to Keys writers and he would have LOVED this place!
