Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Jennifer & Glenn Faulk have been vacationing in the Florida Keys for over 15 years together. We are from the Chicago area, so escaping the cold winter months and brutal weather has become more and more important to us.
Why the Owner Chose Marathon: This house is our dream home and we hope to retire to Marathon someday. The property is everything and more than we could have hoped for with the open concept and water access. The natural light that floods the house is magnificant changing with the changing sun's location. The lines of the house remind us of the Frank Lloyd Wright houses we admire in the Chicago area. My favorite part of the family room is the ceiling - tongue and groove with beams that speak of times gone by. The house is one of a kind and you won't find another like it in the keys...we haven't and we looked for years!
The Unique Benefits at this House: We have invested over $60,000 in building an outdoor space that is the WOW Factor of a high end resort. The new in-ground heated pool and Travertine tile patio area that is a showpiece for entertaining with outdoor lighting for the evening hours. We have purchased the furniture from Crate-N-Barrel with Sunbrella fabric to make a great impression on your guests. There is also a new dining room set to maximize the use of the outdoor space at all times of the day and night.
