Shangri-La in the Florida Keys - SOLD

James Hilton created the mystical place called "Shangri-La" in his novel Lost Horizon. That term has become synonymous with paradise; a totally remote utopia isolated form the rest of the world.

Yesterday, Laurie McChesney of Preferred Properties sold Shangri La in the Florida Keys for $3,250,000. CLICK HERE to see the property Laurie described this way:
"Shangri La in the Florida Keys! This secluded Sugarloaf Beach estate sits on five lush acres & offers a private, stunningly beautiful white sand beach. (460' of ocean/beach frontage)The main house combines island style and interior comforts with the natural beauty of the outdoors. The master bedroom & one guest room open to wrap around decks and offer panoramic vistas of the ocean, palm trees and the beach. Soaring ceilings with a dramatic artistic sculpture anchors the living area. This estate offers a relaxing yet elegant island lifestyle. Ancillary buildings include the guest room/office, a double garage and an equipment pavilion all connected by wooden covered walkways. One of a kind!"

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

Key West, Florida, United States
I first read about Key West in a magazine called "After Dark" sometime in the mid 1970's. But it wasn't until March 1984 that I made my first visit to the island that would become my home. I had two weeks for a vacation and reserved a room at Colours Guesthouse (now Marrero's Guest House) for one week. I thought that if I didn't like Key West, I could always go back to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale for the rest of my trip. But after a couple of days in Key West, that was no longer a consideration. But when I wanted to extend my stay for the extra week I found there was no room at the inn. The guesthouse owner did find me a room at LaTeDa, the infamous guesthouse/restaurant. That's a story I'll write another day. But those two weeks in Key West gave me the realization that I had found Paradise. Key West has been my home since 1993 and my only regret is that it took me so long to get here. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties CRI. Let me help you find your new home or business in Paradise. Living in Paradise is not a slogan, it's a way of life.
