Luxury Homes for Sale in Key Colony Beach Single Family, Florida Keys, Florida

Key Colony Beach is a picturesque island community located in the Middle Florida Keys.

Considered one of the most desirable and highly sought-after communities in the Middle Keys, Key Colony Beach is a throwback to days gone by and exudes what small island living is all about. Incorporated in 1957 as its own city, this idyllic island offers nearly everything one needs within easy walking or biking distance. On Key Colony Beach you’ll find many mom-and-pop businesses, including a marina, dive and tackle shop, restaurants, clothing boutique, gift shop, charter fishing boats and a couple small motels. Key Colony even has its own post office and five person police department. This tranquil community is worth checking out. Give me a call today to learn more about all Key Colony Beach has to offer.

SANDY BEACHES: If there is one thing the Florida Keys are famous for not being famous for, it is their beaches, especially the lack of those with soft sandy shorelines. Key Colony Beach is one of the few exceptions to offer oceanfront single-family homes for sale in the Florida Keys with private white sand beaches. Although these homes do come with a steep price tag, typically starting over $5M. For homebuyer’s looking to spend less, canal front single-family beach homes for sale in Florida Keys are a nice alternative. In Key Colony Beach, all residents can have access to a sandy beach by joining the Cabana Club, which is a member’s only private swim and beach club. And, perhaps Key Colony’s most exclusive beach, is Inch Beach located on W. Ocean Drive; there are 160 owners/shareholders and shares rarely come available to purchase.

STILTED HOMES: Key Colony Beach offers a variety of homes styles, including stilted and ground level. With limited land, stilted structures maximize the utility of the site by building a home above flood, while also allowing the downstairs space to be utilized for storage, outdoor entertainment, and covered parking. With single-family homes for sale, Florida Keys, carports are more commonplace. Fewer than 20% of Keys homes have attached garages, leaving many homebuyers to wonder why. Garage doors create a distinct vulnerability in hurricanes, as wind often enters through a garage door, creating uplift on the attached roof structure. Whereas a carport allows the wind to pass through the opening.

LEISURELY COMMUNITY: If you’re looking for something to do off the water, Key Colony Beach offers a variety of activities to participate in for residents and visitors. Spend the afternoon at the Key Colony Beach 9-hole golf course or bike to a game of tennis or pickleball. Looking for an opportunity to socialize, join the Key Colony Beach Fishing & Boating Club or Community Association, both participate, support and/or organize many of the annual community events such as the KCB Christmas Boat Parade, Clam Bake, KCB Days, Kids Fishing Tournament and more. When considering single-family homes in Florida for sale, know that plenty of activities are right out your front door.
