                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: I'm a physician practicing in Savannah, Georgia. I am originally from Connecticut and did my undergraduate work at Mount Holyoke College. I did my medical training at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond. I love to fish, lobster,swim, snorkel and paddle the beautiful, clear waters of the Florida Keys!

                  Why the Owner Chose Cudjoe Key:
                  I've been going to the Florida Keys for many years, predominantly in the Islamorada area, where a colleague owns a home. I decided to buy a home in the Lower Keys because it's more laid-back and more low-key than the Upper Keys, which is too close to Miami for my taste. I love the natural beauty and access to open ocean and the back country from my home. At the same time, I can be in Key West in 20 minutes. It's the perfect Keys location!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The water in my canal is turquoise. It's a clean, flow-through canal, which means it's nice for swimming. My home is literally 4 minutes from open ocean, boats up to 30 feet can get in and out of our neighborhood, there are no bridges to contend with. The home's location makes it great for boating, kayaking and paddle boarding with beautiful areas to explore.
