Plantation Key house description

Located in Islamorada, the fishing capital of the world, this house is tucked away in a quite neighborhood on the bay side. The backyard consists of a private beach, custom BBQ pit, and a long pier with magnificent views of the Florida bay. There is ample room and depth to dock several boats in case you have any company. You will experience beautiful sunsets right off the end of the dock with a nice cool ocean breeze. During the day grab a rod and reel and toss in a line right off the dock, or jump in and grab a lobster nestled in the rocks below.
If the surf is too much for you to handle the house is just minutes from the famous Tiki Bar. If you want to go more upscale jump in the boat or car and head over to Mile Marker 88, a half mile away. Fantastic restaurants and bars abound, guaranteed not to disappoint.
The house comes equipped with high speed Internet accessible throughout the house along with cable and HDTV so you don’t have to worry about missing your favorite team play.
All the bathrooms have been recently updated with marble tile and fresh new fixtures. The master bedroom is furnished with a king size bed and it has a big walk in closet and a master bath with a separate powder room. The upstairs guest room is made up of two twin beds.
In the living room and family room there are plenty of couches just incase the sleeping quarters get too cramped. Just outside the living room and dining room there is a great screened in porch for relaxing and reading. There is a nice deck just outside the screened in porch running the length of the house for catching some rays.
Downstairs you will find a private suite with a queen bed and a full futon (comfortable spring mattress) along with its own private bathroom. Just outside the suite is a custom BBQ pit ready for grilling up your catch of the day.

              This house is located in the heart of Islamorada, just minutes from the famous Robbys marina where you can feed the giant Tarpons. It's well worth the trip if you haven't been there before. If you have a desire to swim with dolphins the theater of the sea is just around the corner. The famous John Pennekamp coral reef park is just a 20 minute drive north. Take a snorkeling tour of the reef and see all the amazing marine life, a must do! If you are into bird watching the wild bird center is just a 10 minute drive away. They have a diverse variety of birds that they rescue and reintroduce into the wild. To sum everything up the location doesn't get much better.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1982

              About the owner: Born and raised in Miami. Growing up I spent most of my weekends down in the Keys fishing, diving, and doing plenty of water sports. Recently I have been very busy with work and have not had much time to spare. We as a family finally made the decision to share this wonderful place.

              Why the Owner Chose Plantation Key:
              This house has been in the family for thirty years and will continue to stay in the family for at least another generation. This is where my dad taught me how to dive and fish and I plan to do the same with my own.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The warm water, marine life, and quick boat rides to all the cool spots in the middle keys made me fall in love with this place. The view and sunsets are amazing. It's close enough to Miami to make it an enjoyable drive yet far enough away to make you believe you are in another world.
