Built in 1980, the designing of the house includes eco-friendly low energy consuming mechanisms, for making it apt for a location of this kind.
Robert and Elena Williford originally purchased the property in 1995 to enjoy with their four children. Now that their family have grown up, they are spending less time there and have decided to sell.
As the family grew, the owners began renting it out as a luxury getaway that demanded as much as $5,000 per week.
The islands’ $12 million asking price ensures it will be scooped up by either a wealthy isolationist, or a vacation company looking to capitalize on the private paradise.
