Build the home of your dreams in this beautiful tropical paradise, sunset key island is a heart shaped island and it is approx 450' wide x 650' long and has approx 1,900' of waterfront shoreline. It is 5' to 7' in elevation above the mean high water mark and has permission from the county to construct one dwelling of any size. The property can be used as a single family residence or split and used as a rental / investment property. There is a permit approved by the U.S. Army corp of engineers to build a boat dock.

This island is located at the entrance to the anclote river, just 200 - 250 yards from the anclote river county park. Watch the dolphins swim and feed daily. The channel at the north end of the island is 14' to 16' deep, so barges can bring any equipment and building materials to the island during building construction.

This is an awesome place to build your dream home or an investment opportunity for what the price of a small waterfront building lot would sell for locally. Property taxes are approx $200 per year at the present time. The island sits just 200 yards from multi million dollar homes to the south. Electricity and utilities can be brought to the island by duke energy through directional drilling under the river or another alternative for electricity would be the use of solar or wind turbine power. Water has been found on the island at a depth of 3 feet this is quite common on islands it is called the lens effect, this means that a low sandy islands just a few feet above sea level can have a water table which can be 3 - 4 times the height of the island because the fresh water forces the salt water out and creates a lens shaped aquifer under the island, cell phone reception is very clear on the sunset key island.

Tarpon springs is a very quaint and historical area and in the 1900s the city was considered the sponge capital of the world, there are so many great places to eat from waterfront restaurants to fine dining.
