                              About: I am the owner's daughter, grandaughter to Del and Mary Layton, and I manage the property for my mother. I grew up in Miami and came to the Keys often as a child with my grandparents, spending many summers here with them. I remember fondly the 'long' drives down on the rough roads and the rattling draw bridges in the back seat of the Chevorlet Impala with Pat, the family dog. After marrying and having two sons, we continued coming down to see my grandparents each chance we could, bringing friends and church groups to enjoy our blessings. Mary and Del were gracious, enjoyed people and were loved by all that knew them. I hope to continue sharing the joy that the Layton House has brought to so many over the years as families and friends build lasting memories.

                              Why Long Key:
                              This property has been passed down from my grandfather, Del Layton, to his daughter, Aileen Howard. He founded this little piece of paradise in the Middle Keys after selling his grocery business in Miami in the late 1940's to follow his dream. You can read the history in his biography, Pioneer in the Florida Keys. The property is very spacious, tranquil and private.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                              The Layton property is one of the most beautiful in the Florida Keys with views of the Bay, gorgeous changing sunsets, and swaying palm trees from the many windows in the home. The huge kitchen with a large semi-circular bar area is the gathering place for young and old to cook, eat and enjoy each other's company. Pictures displayed around the home recall moments from the past. The large circular fresh-water pool, surrounded with native landscaping, is a fantastic place to unwind and relax before grilling your catch and having dinner in the tiki.
