WHAT’S HOT IN MIAMI ASIDE FROM THE WEATHER?
Answer: Key Biscayne
Here are some fast facts about the “Key”
· 26 Homes sold since January 2011
· Average Home Value: $ 2,340,000
· 70 % of the residents are Home Owners
· 1st Quarter Ending showed a 11.6% increase in luxury residential sales
· Population on Key Biscayne is roughly 10,000
If living in luxury means to reside on an island, then one should consider Key Biscayne. This protected island is set between the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay National Park and holds the treasured Crandon Park which is home to our very own Bear Cut Wilderness Preserve as well as the 500 acre Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park where the 156 year old “Cape Florida Lighthouse” sits at the southernmost tip of Key Biscayne (take a walk to the top, it’s a great view). Not only is this island extremely unique for boasting two protected/dedicated parks but the residents have a strong loyalty to not only their village community but also to the delicate eco system and the original inhabitants of the island. To write that the residents are “involved” in their community would be an understatement!
The attractiveness of Key Biscayne is not only in its’ natural beauty but in the graceful development throughout the years of this unique community village where all villagers and visitors alike take advantage of the locally branded markets, restaurants and shops as well as participating in the island’s hosting of world class events such as the Sony Ericsson Open (tennis tournament) or the most competitive local regattas and fishing tournaments. The known fact that this is the easiest 20 minute commute, whether for work or play, to reach the heart of downtown Miami, Miami Beach, Coral Gables and Coconut Grove alone makes all the amenities Key Biscayne has to offer the truest of luxuries in itself!
