Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: Steven & Kathy searched for the perfect spot in the Lower Keys, came across a diamond in the rough. You guessed it ....TORCHVIEW, with foresight and some hard work managed to make this piece of heaven 'our Paradise'. We know its 'Paradise 'because we have been told so by ALL who stay here. We KNOW you'll feel that way too, COME CHECK IT OUT! We live in West Michigan when were not in the Keys. We are on the premises from Dec. to April.

Why the Owner Chose Big Torch Key:
We have bought a house on Cudjoe and built another there too ( both on canals), it was crowded, noisy and our pets had no where to run. We wanted seclusion, privacy, open water and space to breathe. The first time we saw TORCHVIEW WE knew IT was home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The most incredible sunsets at TORCHVIEW will capture the tropical flavor of the Keys without leaving the country. Our views off the deck will give you peace and tranquility. Isn't that what we came for????
