Are you searching for a bit of quiet time after a busy holiday season?
If so, an uninhabited island in Florida’s Intracoastal Waterway could be yours on Ebay for just $460,000.
Emilio Cirelli, the current owner of the private land in the Halifax River, just off the coast of the city of Port Orange has put the deeds on Ebay with no strings attached.
Tranquil: This little bit of Florida could be yours for just $460,000
Location, location, location: The island is situated in a river, close to the beach
The interior of the island is ready to be built on
As reported in the Orlando Sentinel, Cirelli acquired the land in Volusia County after a previous owner defaulted on property taxes.
Now Cirelli says he can’t afford to build on the land so has put the three-acre uninhabited property on the auction website. But at the time of writing there hasn’t been too much interest.
The advantages of the plot are obvious. A prime waterside plot, with no neighbors, the island was created as the Halifax River has been dredged.
Cirelli claims the land is ready for development and the Ebay listing is full of promising details. But be quick, there are only a few hours of the auction left.

The land is close to Port Orange and some famous Florida beaches
The private island is 2 miles south of Dunlawton Bridge and the land is only accessible from the river.
As the Ebay page states: ‘Islands are unique properties as 97% are government owned, not in private ownership, and typically priced over $1,000,000.’
No back taxes are due and a down payment of just $25,000 is required. Cash, money order or certified funds will be accepted. Only Paypal is not welcome.
Cirelli also claims that the island is close to some of the nicest beaches on the eastern seaboard.
Though there are some downsides to the secluded private island. Everything has to be taken to the property by barge and there are no power facilities.
The new owner would need to seek permission from local government to build anything there, and the highest point is only five feet above sea level.
Most island properties sell for over $1,000,000 but this one is less than half that price
