Property description

Built new by us just 4 years ago, the house has all the modern amenities that you would expect, and the open plan layout gives that spacious airy feeling that suits the tropics. Cable TV, broadband, a full kitchen (approved by my French wife) fully screened deck with loungers so comfortable you won't feel guilty about taking an afternoon nap. The concrete dock and electric boat lift will make it easy to use the water if you bring your boat. If you prefer more low-key aquatic adventures, there are two kayaks available to go manatee watching.
The house overlooks a small private airstrip, and it's novel to watch as people land their small planes and taxi to their houses (no big jets)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I'm a retired businessman from England who just can't get enough of the warm sunshine, warm water and blue skies in the Florida Keys.

Why the Owner Chose Summerland Key:
I'm a pilot, and also a boat guy, - Summerland Key is the only place in the World where you can have your airplane under your house and your boat out back. See the views of Summerland from an aircraft on www.FD51.net

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Summerland is quiet and peaceful without being isolated. If you want to get immersed in the frenetic activity of a major destination resort, Key West is just 20 minutes down the road. But stay in the locality and there are great restaurants, cafes and bars. Not to forget fantastic scuba and fishing!
