Marathon estate description

' Sunset Point ', is a stately private home situated at the very end of a point overlooking a beautiful protected lagoon. Sombrero Country Club and golf course are directly across the water nestled behind a shoreline of lush mangroves, providing a natural landscape. The sunsets across the bay from the porch and pool area are spectacular.
Built in the temple style of architecture, the ground level single story structure is at once spacious and luxurious.Massive bronze front doors open into an impressive great room to include a dining area and sunken living room with gas fireplace. The vaulted ceiling is constructed of fine Honduran mahogony. Standing just inside the entrance, one can see through the opposing wall of glass to the huge indoor pool and the bay and shoreline beyond.
The dinning room will seat ten to twelve guests comfortably, and the adjacent living room\ tv area will accomodate an additional ten to twelve.
The large, completely renovated kitchen\ family room has granite counter tops and all stainless steel premium appliances. This kitchen is fully equiped with the best of knives, utensils, cookware,a commercial blender,and numerous other electronic conveniences. Doors open from the family room onto the outdoor porch as well as to the indoor pool . The porch is home to a gas barbeque and a stunning set of Lloyd Flanders all weather wicker furniture and cushions . The adjoining indoor pool is surrounded by a wide tile patio and seating area, and further enhanced by a border of tropical planting. The vaulted Honduran mahogony ceiling completes the picture.
The five bedrooms and three full bathrooms have just been completely redecorated using only the finest of beds, mattresses, and bathroom fixtures. The master bath has a walk in shower and large tub with a walk- in [ handicap ] door. All bedrooms have new flat screen TVs.
More than an acre of landscaped grounds surround the residence; the lawns are a lush green and meticulously maintained. Over 600' of seawall encompass the property, and a high stucco wall and iron entrance gate keep the property secure and private. There is ample secure parking behind the gates for personal vehicles. ALL boats, trailers, RVs, etc., are to be stored on our lots at the end of Avenue D on Cocoa Plum which is only four miles from the house. We recommend trailer locks when stored there. An ideal vacation retreat, 'Sunset Point ' offers ample space for a family reunion or special function.

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  Why Marathon:
                  Our family has vacationed in Marathon for many years and when the opportunity arose to purchase this house which we had always admired, we took it. The area is reminiscent of the islands with a relaxed, informal lifestyle. There is plenty to do in and around Marathon, the fishing is fantastic, and the kids love it.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                  ' Sunset Point ' is a private little kingdom secluded behind it's walled entrance.The Sombrero Beach location is certainly the best in Marathon for a variety of reasons. First, the fantastic Sombrero Beach itself with its bathrooms, showers,and two volley ball courts, is only one mile away. Secondly,it is centrally located; only a short distance to supermarkets,restaurants, and shopping. Additionally, Sombrero Beach is one of the finest neighborhoods in Marathon.
