Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: I have lived in the Florida Keys for 30 years, and in this house for 24. When we first came to the Florida Keys my husband and I fell in love with it. It is the only place that comes anywhere close to the Bahamian Islands where I grew up and spent the first 12 years of my marriage. When it was time for our daughter to go to school, Marathon and this property was the perfect solution. My husband had been a shipwright and I had always loved working with wood which prompted us to start a Boat Refinishing business. I've always said, 'I get paid to play'. I continued the business successfully for 10 years until we had a Hurricane that did a great deal of damage to our property. I found It necessary to start the transition into working more on my house and less on my business. This was the best decision I have ever made. I love Building & Designing things and my years of experience with wood and varnish have given me the opportunity to make this property a beautiful and relaxing sanctuary for all to enjoy.

Why the Owner Chose Marathon:
You would never know that you are so close to everything. Hidden at the very end of the street on a corner lot providing seclusion from everything but the amazing views in front of you. 5 restaurants within walking distance- .02 miles Publix & Winn Dixie (Grocery stores)- 1.1 miles K-Mart 1.1 Miles 14 Acre Community Park, with lighted tennis courts, skate board park, basketball, soccer, amphitheater, exercise trails & playground.- .03 miles

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
There is no need to leave your home away from home. All the peace and tranquility of paradise awaits you right outside your front door.
