Florida’s largest private island for sale borders the Ocala National Forest


Listed for $7.9 million, a 273-acre key in Central Florida is currently the biggest private island for sale in the state.

Bordering the Ocala National Forest, Hog Island sits in the middle of Lake George, which is part of the St. John's River in Polatka, Florida. Accessible only by boat, seaplane or helicopter, Hog Island comes with three unique cottages, multiple boat docks, two ATVs, two pontoon boats, a historical one room school house, full electric utilities, phones,  internet and well water, and of course, near total seclusion.

Formerly called Belle Island, Hog Island has a network of trails, and is largely undeveloped, leaving the possibilities for customization virtually endless, especially for any eccentric billionaires interested in "The Most Dangerous Game."

The property is listed by Andrew Holland and Hal George of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty.
