A secluded 51-acre island only accessible by boat or seaplane is heading to auction in Central Florida — now with $1 million knocked off the price. (No BOGO, though.)
The island, dubbed Bird Island
, is located in the middle of Lake Griffin, which is part of the Harrison Chain of Lakes, just outside of the Villages. The 1,120-square-foot house, the only house on the island, has two bedrooms and one bathroom, plus a wrap-around porch and vaulted ceilings.
According to the listing, the island is already zoned for additional, larger homes to be built on the nearly 4 acres of cleared land.
Bird Island is going to auction with a base price of $1,350,000 — that's down from asking price of $2.7 million in early 2021, and down from $6.7 million before that. The island is set to go to auction Oct. 18 with real estate firm Tranzon Driggers, in cooperation with Whitetail Properties Real Estate. Bidding
opens Oct. 11.
