Property description

Located in the Lower Keys, this comfortable and elegant 2200 sqft 3BR/3BA two story home is a tropical paradise. Built in 2008 it features a large gourmet island kitchen, granite counter tops, dual built-in convection ovens, gas cook top, wine cooler, and large built-in refrigerator. If you love to cook, you’ll love this kitchen! After creating the perfect meal, you can enjoy it in the formal dining room. There are wood and tile floors, central air/heat, and ceiling fans throughout the home offering total comfort. A full-size, front-loading washer and dryer are also included for your convenience. Along with flat screen TV's, Wi-Fi and cable in each bedroom, a 46 inch HD flat screen TV, blu-ray DVD player & Apple TV are in the main living area. Off of the main living area is a wrap around porch with an outside eating area and hammocks to enhance the ultimate relaxation experience. If you're into fitness, you’ll enjoy the gym adjacent to the master suite which features a weight machine and an elliptical machine. The exterior doors in the master suite open onto a wrap around porch overlooking a private dock on canal with beautiful vistas (great spot to watch the sunset as well as stargaze).

Downstairs has a large open area with barbecue grill, hammock, seating area, hot tub, lush tropical landscaping with palm trees and fruit trees, swim ladder on private dock with electric boat lift, outside shower and many other amenities. Landscape lighting offers beautiful views at night in front yard, dock and backyard. There is plenty of room for covered parking, RV and a boat trailer.

From the house it's a quick walk to 5 Brothers Two Grocery which has the best Cuban coffee and Cuban pastries in the Keys. One block south of 5 Brothers is Boondocks Bar & Grill, a great place to eat and listen to live music most nights in the large Tiki open air restaurant. You definitely get the island feel here, and miniature golf is also available. There is also a large grocery store (Winn-Dixie) on Big Pine Key, just minutes away by car.

Of course, one of the best things about this home is its close proximity to Key West. This quaint, historical southernmost city is always entertaining and has some of the finest dining establishments anywhere. It is hard to choose as there are so many to pick from. There are also many activities to enjoy, from sunset cruises to snorkeling adventures, and everything in between.

The house is on an open canal which has access to the Atlantic and Gulf waters just 10 minutes away. The water is crystal clear and great for snorkeling and swimming. If you don't have a boat, there are marinas within blocks from the house that offer dive trips that will take you to some of the most spectacular diving and fishing spots in the world.

You can experience the crystal blue waters of Looe Key Reef, rated as one of the top ten spots in the world and the only living reef in North America, just a quick boat ride away. Looe Key Dive Center is located on Ramrod Key, offering daily dive, snorkeling and fishing trips aboard the Kokomo Cat.
