Located across the channel from sunny Key West, Florida, is an elite destination called Sunset Key. This island retreat is the true southernmost paradise of the United States.
This privately held island between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico has humble roots. Constructed by the Navy in the 60’s as a fuel depot for their Atlantic fleet, plans were eventually scrubbed. Sunset Key then sold to a private developer who realized its potential as a high end vacation and residence spot.
Now the Westin Hotel in Key West operates several cottages on Sunset Key and provides exclusive access via their shuttle boat. It has played host to esteemed guests and residents such as Oprah Winfrey, who once rented out the island’s cottages for a private affair. And then there’s Latitudes, the premiere Key West restaurant with a view of sunset second to none.
For the rest of the island, real estate doesn’t get more exclusive than this. Take 45 Sunset Key Drive, for example. You couldn’t get closer to having a home on a resort, with access to amenities like tennis courts, spa/gym access, and even a beach on the property.
The house itself is pure luxury. A wraparound porch lets you take in all the beauty on the surround, as well as master suite deck for a more private view. Indoors you’ll find a 3-bed, 3-bath palace with unparalleled space from open floor plan to high ceilings, and crafted detail in crown molding and true wood floors.
