We've all done it once or twice — dreamt of living on a private island paradise away from the world fit for tropical kings and queens. What could make it even better? If it could also function as a bunker if things were to hit the fan. A home for sale in the Florida Keys offers those tropical vibes with a touch of luxury and self-sustainability.
This survival homestead sits perfectly perched on a Florida island peninsula named Sugarloaf Key.
The four-home, four-acre gated Atlantic Oceanfront estate totaling 5,000 square feet could house you and your doomsday crew with nine total bedrooms and eight baths, all surrounded by a grove of hundreds of coconut trees.
You could kick back in a hammock as the ocean breeze gently shakes the trees and the sun kisses your skin, or dive deep into a stunning custom rock-pool grotto, complete with your very own waterfall and pool-side tiki bar.
A 500-foot dock stretches out into the ocean where you could dock your ship, or you can drive the winding roads to the remote location where the owner says you can grow a sustainable garden seven months out of the year, according to the listing description.

"There is unlimited food and water without leaving the property," the listing reads.
"I successfully grow a huge garden every year. Chickens, ducks, turkeys, and rabbits are easy to raise here. ... Literally unlimited fish and lobster from the dock. Tropical fruits, bananas, pineapples, and coconuts grow all year long."

The owner, Troy, says the property is also perfectly located for adding solar or wind power that could take you off the grid.
Despite its dreamy private location, it's only 100 miles from the Florida mainland, and 150 from Miami with its rooftop bars and robust nightlife.

Just because you're off the beaten path doesn't mean you have to skimp on the amenities of modern life either. The property has access to Comcast and AT&T fiber internet, county water, electricity, cell service from all companies, as well as satellite services.

How much does something like this cost? The Sugarloaf homestead is currently listed at $4,800,000. With the ability to self-sustain and a touch of modern luxury, the price tag might just be worth it.
