Key Biscayne Homes

Key Biscayne is the southernmost Florida barrier island located, beneath Virginia Key and Miami Beach, just off the coast of Miami. It’s approximately 5 miles long and 1-2 miles wide. A scenic drive across the Rickenbacker Causeway takes you to the island paradise, where you’ll find a marina, golf course, gorgeous sandy beaches, and the Crandon Park Tennis Center. This picturesque luxury home neighborhood lies nestled between 2 sprawling parks: Crandon Park to the North, and Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park to the South. Both parks feature stunning beaches, mangroves, lush forests, and exotic wildlife. Golf carts are a common mode of transportation here which you’ll see along the main drag, often parked at the local restaurants, shops, grocery store, and other businesses lining Crandon Boulevard. Offering gorgeous waterfront homes and those of interior lots, Key Biscayne is the quintessential tropical island paradise. Its laid-back charm gives way to a true sense of escape from the commotion of downtown Miami.
 
Key Biscayne Homes History:
Large scale residential development did not begin in Key Biscayne until the opening of the 4-mile long Rickenbacker Causeway in 1947. Prior to that time, the top 2/3rds of the Island operated as the largest coconut plantation located in the continental US. The Matheson family, who owned the plantation, donated over 800 acres of this land to the county to form Crandon Park in 1940, in exchange for the promise of the county that a causeway from the mainland would be constructed. The rest of the plantation land was sold to developers, and eventually, after multiple transfers and sales of the southern third of the island stemming from original owner James Deering, the state of Florida purchased what is now the Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park. In 1991, the village of Key Biscayne was incorporated as a new municipality of Miami-Dade County.
