Unequivocally one of Florida’s most interesting homes for sale is this spectacular 6,183-square-foot home in Tavernier with a mesmerizing grotto that would appear to rival the famous grotto of the Playboy Mansion.

The modern glassy residence was built in 2013 and has hit the market asking $8.8 million, with five bedrooms and six bathrooms while embodying the Florida Keys dream vacation home.

Beyond its expansive underground cave are an array of amazing features, like towering Alaskan Cedar wood ceilings, bay views from all over the house, a home theater, gourmet kitchen, resort-style pool, waterfalls, swim-up bar, and an outdoor kitchen.

Additionally, there’s a private beach, protected dockage, boat lift, and home automation. The property previously sold for $900,000 in 2001, a dozen years before the current specimen was completed.

The three-story residence is one of the 12 most expensive homes for sale in the Florida Keys, and sits just north of Islamorada.
