For those who want to enjoy island living while still being a short distance from all the advantages of being near a major city, Fisher Island may be just perfect for you. Over the years, Fisher Island has become one of the most desired location in the Miami-Dade County area and for good reason. The island itself is still relatively sparsely populated yet offers all the features you expect when living in the Miami area.
It should be noted that Fisher Island can only be reached by ferry, helicopter, or boat, which provides a peaceful, tranquil setting of a tropical paradise. However, you can still reach the city quickly by all three methods thanks to the island’s location in Biscayne Bay.
The settlement of the 216-acre island can be traced back to the turn of the 20th century when Carl Fisher, of whom the island is now named, purchased the property and subsequently traded it to William Vanderbilt II in 1924 for a 250-foot yacht. Vanderbilt proceeded to construct a sumptuous mansion on the island which has now become the center of the Fisher Island Club.
Over the years, the island has been developed to include more villas, homes, and condominiums for rent or purchase. Yet, it still remains exclusive and for those living on the island, it is a wonderful place to live. The homes themselves are quite attractive and built to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and sunny skies that make up the Miami experience. All this, while being on a small island.
A 2010 census demonstrated that Fisher Island had the highest per capita income in all the US for its size. You can enjoy luxury living that provides you with endless activities both indoors and under the sun.
For those who want the best in exclusive living on an island, yet also want the amenities and conveniences of being near a modern city, Fisher Island is for you. This exclusive destination offers plenty of activities for you to enjoy while living in a tropical paradise.
