About Fisher Island Homes
Fisher Island is a census-designated place situated on a barrier island just 3 miles from Miami, South Florida.
Fisher Island is one of the most affluent communities in the United States with the highest per capita income (over $1 million), as of 2015.
With a total area under a square mile, the island sits east of downtown Miami, across Biscayne Bay and south of Miami Beach. It hosts a community of a limited number of households who reside around a golf course along a private shoreline. No roads or causeways lead to Fisher island, and it’s only accessible by helicopters, private boats, or a secured ferry on which outsiders are not allowed. The community started developing in the 1960s. Today, it’s an oasis of stunning landscaping and Mediterranean-inspired real estate.
Fisher Island’s real estate is mostly multi-family apartments that meander along the coastline in urban-like planning. Most homes have several stories with a few apartments in each. There are some single-family mansions available as well. Listings in Fisher Island can exceed $25 million. The square footage usually ranges from 3,800 to 10,000. Most homes feature spacious kitchens and bathrooms, large porches, open-floor plans, rooftops with pools, and many other premium facilities.
The majority of Fisher Island homes have magnificent views. However, the most upscale residences look over the ocean, the spectacular skyline of downtown Miami, or both. As there isn’t much room for additional construction on the land, Fisher Island homes for sale are an unmissable opportunity.
Nearly 700 families own properties on the island, but they are rarely there at the same time. Many celebrities and CEOs have resided in Fisher Island, including Oprah Winfrey.
For a small island, there are several amenities available for residents, including eight high-end restaurants, a 9-hole golf course, eight tennis courts, and a private beachfront.
