Open Water Homes in the Florida Keys - starting lower than you may think!

The ultimate Florida Keys home is one that has easy access to the open water, with tranquil views from the living areas inside.

At just under 300 open water single family homes to choose from, there should be something for just about everyone's budget.

The lowest priced home is listed at $390,000 - but it did suffer considerable damage from Hurricane Irma.  It is also located on Cook's Island - a unique off-shore community unite any other in the Keys.

My personal favorite is 95 Seaview Ave (pictured, top). This house just isn't overlooking the water - it's actually over the water itself. It has a very unique and historic feel to it (built in 1958), but is updated to modern standards. And it is listed at just $699,000.

But if money is no object, be sure to take a look 94100 Overseas Highway,  the most expensive property (pictured, bottom)  on the list - topping out at $24,500,000. Set on over 12.5 private acres, this incredible home features two stretches of private beach, 3 separate structures and several lush nature trails. Upon entering the expansive main house through the porte cochere one begins to feel the essence of the property as you cross a bridge overlooking waterfalls, koi ponds and lush greenery. With exceptional direct unobstructed views of the bay and open airy spaces this house was made for entertaining.
