House of the Day: Florida Island Paradise
Here's another floating piece of paradise we can add to our list of private islands we'd like to buy
when we win the lottery.
Located in the glistening azure waters between Sarasota
in Florida, Little Bokeelia Island is the idyllic island resort you dream of escaping to when you're sitting at your 9-to-5 desk job.
It offers 100 glorious acres of land, including a stunning Spanish-style estate built in the 1920s. The four-bedroom house boasts soaring, wood-beamed ceilings, arched entryways, elegant columns and classic wood detailing throughout.
Outside the 6,486-square-foot home, you'll find acre upon acre of lush, wild greenery, a smattering of tropical palms and an incredible waterfall (pictured at left).
If you thought the coolness ended there, you're so very wrong. The island heaven that is Little Bokeelia also offers a stunning 3½-mile beach that looks like it could've been lifted right off the coast of Guanacaste in Costa Rica.
And it can be yours, all yours -- if you have a spare $29.5 million lying around. Thanks to our friends over at Business Insider
for the tip.
