Marathon house description

Private wide waterfront home. 4,200 square foot with banquet hall, seats 14. Three central air conditioners, the house is so big. Party room with unique Bar embedded with sand dollars, a real $100 bill that only kids can find, sometimes drunken adults; watch out for the 8 piranhas. Game table, big screen TVs
A cannon guards the direct channel to the Atlantic. Please bring 2 pound balls and powder with you. Fed Ex will not deliver. I used the last of it on a boat that I sunk within view of the house. Luke's Law, if a boat passes the home does not wave to my guests or is not playing Jimmy Buffet music, you have permission to fire the cannon on them. Examine the remains of the boat I sunk with use of my free kayaks. Rental boats can be delivered to my 528' of seawall. Cut i boat slip for dockage. Football Cornhole Game(bring your own stickers,I can't pick a team. Park 6 trucks and Trailers. Pirate parties on request. Have someone kidnapped.
There is only 52 weeks a year for 52 lucky families.

Fishing from our docks is always an exciting surprise... tarpon, barracuda, nurse shark, sting rays; don't touch my pet lobsters at the seawall. Close to mediocre Golf courses. Swim with the dolphins.
Go to Keys Fisheries for a Lobster Rueben sandwich. It's so big, buy one for 2 people.
Next go to Captain Pips for a Fried Key Lime pie, buy 2 for one person or there will be a fight for the other persons pie.

                              We are located at Mile Marker 54; Key West is Mile Marker Zero. Yup, the calculator says that's 54 miles away. A scenic one hour drive and the most memorable sunset ever at Mallory Square with the circus performers. Free Kayaks Fishing, fishing, fishing. Anything that swims in the Atlantic swims past this house. As a matter of fact, the fish swim circles around this property as we are a bridge connected island. Come have your photo put on my wall with your 6 foot catch.

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2001

                              About the owner: I'm on my zayak out near Gilligans Island, (couple of miles away) looking for the downed Malaysia Boeing 777. Come help me look! In 2001 was on my sailboat in the process of buying an incredible home overlooking the Sea of Abaco when an aerial photo of CannonPoint showed up on my laptop. I started to worry about maintaining the Abaco property having to boat to the mainland for parts. Marathon had just put in a Home Depot so I bought CannonPoint sight unseen. I'm addicted to kayaking and the Keys are my favorite place in the World.

                              Why the Owner Chose Marathon:
                              Deep Dock water frontage of 528' with cut in boat slip. 528' concrete seawall. Privacy, incredible view from every slider. Cathedral ceiling in every room, except the love shack.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              For Large family reunions, weddings and other large group events, the Office Suite of rooms with a 5th bed and bath can be rented for an extra $1,000.00.
