Located just minutes off Florida’s historic Cedar Key on the beautiful Gulf Coast, Deer Island offers a grand lifestyle. Experience unique privacy, outstanding outdoor recreation, and a tropical paradise all on your personal, secure, and exclusive 90-acre island. This private island is rich with native bird species and is well-suited for a family get-away, recreational sports, camping, hiking, nature watching, and much more!
The island features an exceptional sugar white sandy beach along the entire west coastline. The interior rises to an elevation of 14 feet above sea level and is densely forested with large oaks, pines, cedars, and palms with an understory of counties, wild coffee, palmettos, and more – perfect for Florida’s native wildlife habitats. A narrow dirt roadway runs north and south along the spine of the island. The island house sits on the north end of the island near the dock. The 45 acres on the north end is 14 feet above sea level, the 45 acres on the south side is not above sea level but may offer a revenue source as a conservation easement.
The island is located inside the Big Bend Aquatic Seagrass Preserve and adjoins the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge. The historic fishing villages of Cedar Key and Suwannee are eight miles south and north of the island, respectively. The city of Gainesville, home of the University of Florida, is 50 miles to the east, and the pristine waters of the Gulf to the west.
Access to the island is by boat, seaplane, or helicopter. With deep water access on the northeast corner of the island, the new long dock facilitates any conveyance.
Given its location among several protected lands and refuges, there is a potential to sell the southern portion as a conservation easement. Other income opportunities include leasing the property to boaters, campers, or organizing fishing trips! The island has been home to indigenous peoples as well as settlers, and with the local interest in marine life by the University of Florida Nature Coast Biological Station in Cedar Key, the ingredients are ripe for tourist development.
