An island paradise off the coast of Florida just sold for $US14.5 million to a former teacher and homemaker.
With 104 acres of pristine wilderness and 3.5 miles of oceanfront, the island is a certifiable semi-tropical paradise. It also has a four-bedroom Spanish villa-style home on it, built in 1928.
Though the asking price was $US24.5 million, the owners were looking to move quickly and all serious offers were considered. This led to the $US14.5 million final selling price.
The new owners are Mark Pentecost, a former teacher and homemaker turned entrepreneur, and his wife Cindy.
Michael Saunders and Company handled the listing.
