This spacious waterfront 5-bedroom home is a one of a kind and was built by owner native to the Keys. The home is unique with very vibrant colors and a Keysie atmosphere. Pine Channel Estates is a very private, quiet & safe neighborhood with the top canals in the lower Keys. You will love just snorkeling from your back yard dock or taking the Tandem Kayak for a ride across the bay for cocktail hour at Kiki's or just to sit and watch the sunset over the Ocean. We have 75ft of waterline and have many marine visitors like Manatee's or schools of large fish. You can even snorkel or sit and fish off the dock for dinner. The house is huge and set up for family. It's just a step down from the Kitchen into a spacious living grand room with high ceilings, overstuffed furniture and a queen siz...This spacious waterfront 5-bedroom home is a one of a kind and was built by owner native to the Keys.

We have 75ft of waterline and have many marine visitors like Manatee's or schools of large fish. You can even snorkel or sit and fish off the dock for dinner. The house is huge and set up for family. It's just a step down from the Kitchen into a spacious living grand room with high ceilings, overstuffed furniture and a queen size sleeper for a 6th bed if needed. This grand living area is perfect for a big crew! With 16 feet of sliding glass doors that open to the porch over-looking the canal on the cooler days. Watch from the large porch as your family plays on the 6ft x 18ft lily pad. There are many unique art sculptures, photos and pictures along with handmade driftwood furniture making this home comfortable and interesting. Much of the artwork is from Mark Rackley a well-known photographer for Shark Week. The master bedroom is exotic room with lots of bold colors and a very comfortable King size bed and sitting area. Along side of the sitting area is an ensuite with a deep two-man tub and separate glass block shower. We also have a very large front bedroom which is also equipped with a sitting area and half bath. This room has 16 feet of sliders that pocket off the porch and cathedral ceilings to give you that spacious bright feeling. The porch over looks our pristine canal. There is a jack & jill bathroom that connect to our back bedrooms for double access and both bedrooms have queen beds. Lastly the office is also converted into a bedroom with an overstuffed full futon The washer & dryer are in the hall and we have a central vaccum. Our home is very clean with a central AC that was replaced in 2018 with a Hepa Solace air system which also removes at least 99.97% of all bacteria, mold, dust and particles from the air. The backyard has seating for a large group, fire pit by the canal and tandem Kayak ready to go into the water at any time. The 25 ft dock can hold up to a 32 ft boat while the rest of our waterfront is naturally landscaped for privacy and has a walkway along the mangroves with native foliage and a hammock. There is an enclosed outside hot shower that is easily accessible after swimming and boating or just as an extra shower for a big crew. The downstairs enclosure has a 2-carport garage, tons of storage, a small box freezer, fridge with freezer, workout room, sitting area & darts. The back yard had a gas and charcoal grill combined, hammock, yard chairs and a tandem kayak. The dock is only 400 feet from open water with quick access to both the gulf & Atlantic Ocean. Located on Pine Channel this location is perfect for fisherman & divers! Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 5093977

About the neighbourhood
Big Pine Key is a Sanctuary for Key Deer. The island is full of trails for bikes or walking.
Getting around
Bikes are great to get around our island. Everything is pretty close within a mile of many restaurants and stores on the island. We recommend a car to visit the adjoining islands.
Access
Car advised
How to get there
Besides driving there are 2 ways to Fly: Into Key West (EYW) is easiest & quickest but you will miss seeing most of the upper Keys. Key West is about a half an hour drive to the house OR Fly into Miami (MIA) or FT. Lauderdale (FLL) and drive about 3 hours (MIA) or 4 hours (FLL) to the house through the bottom of Florida and the upper Keys from Key Largo (mile marker 110) to Big Pine Key (MM 29)
