If you're tired of the hustle and bustle of urban life and have $17 million to spare, this could be a perfect opportunity for you: A private island in the Florida Keys is on the market.
Terra's Key, which is connected to the mainland by a thin, mile-long peninsula, is 15.8 acres of secluded paradise. It's dotted with towering palm trees and has spectacular views of the mangroves, ocean and the Alligator Reef Lighthouse, says listing agent Patti Stanley.
