Marathon house description

Gated, Ocean Front, 4BR, 2 Master Suites, Sleeps 8, Private
This two-story, ocean-front Florida Keys home is the ideal locale for busy executives, families, retirees and vacationers alike. Developers thoughtfully considered every last detail when designing and constructing this architectural masterpiece – from its breathtaking, scenic ocean views to its high-definition flat-panel televisions in the living room and all four bedrooms.
This sunrise beach house is elegantly decorated with classic charcoal and crème tones. Interior space is enhanced by rich custom wall mosaics, while the home’s exterior is graced with professional landscaping, lounge chairs, a hammock and two, four foot pool-side hand-carved granite statues. Designer furnishings extend into the two master bedrooms, where visitors are greeted by plush, luxurious king-sized beds and attached bathroom with Jacuzzis. Two additional bedrooms house lavish twin beds, one with walk-out French doors and year-round ocean views.

              • With incredibly mild seasons, the Keys rise and fall just 12 to 20 degrees year-round. Residents and visitors enjoy average 70 degrees in January and 80 to 90-degree summer months. Warm tropical showers and thunderstorms roll through the shores between May and October, creating an extraordinarily moody, romantic and dramatic ambiance. The Key’s cobalt-colored waters and coral reefs are a haven for scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, kayaking and boating. Sport fishermen flock to its waters, with 10 percent of the world’s salt fish records set just off the shores. Visit the Adelaide Baker historic shipwreck, Telta Shoals and the famous Thunderbolt wreck dive site. Swim with dolphins or indulge in local Eco Tours. The opportunities are limitless. Arts abound at the nearby Tennessee Williams Theater, while The Key West Literary Seminar draws hundreds of new and well-known creative writers each January....moreless

                              The temperate Florida Keys provide an atmosphere all their own, with idyllic tropical temperatures, clear, shallow waters and white sandy beaches. Step onto its shores and wrap yourself in its serenity. Steeped in tradition and history, The Keys have provided a rejuvenating retreat for the likes of Ernest Hemingway, who penned his infamous novel A Farewell to Arms while living on the islands, and Tennessee Williams, who purchased a home on its shores.

                              Marathon, coined the Heart of the Florida Keys, is located at the center of the island chain and connected to the southern islands by the famous Seven Mile Bridge, the longest fragmented bridge in the world built in 1985 adjacent to its original counterpart. The bridge, offering a scenic view of the Atlantic ocean’s sparkling waters, has been featured in several movies including True Lies and 2 Fast 2 Furious. Anglers are drawn to its “longest fishing pier in the world”, where they can catch dolphin fish, yellow tail and barracuda.
