Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: Lyman is a retired naval officer and I am a native of Arlington, Virginia. While we have owned property in the Keys since 1978, we did not move permanently to the Florida Keys until 2012 and love it here. Please come down to the Keys and enjoy this tropical paradise with us.

Why the Owner Chose Venetian Shores (Islamorada, FL, USA):
We were lucky to buy a waterfront lot on our first visit to the Florida Keys in the late 1970s. Kathleen designed and had the house built in 1990. It was always our dream to move to the Keys and enjoy the warm sunshine, keys style casual living and the many friends we have been fortunate enough to get to know along the way. We treasure "Irish Ayes" as it is a very very special home that has served as our primary residence since 2008. We have recently purchased a "fixer upper" on the bay just two miles north and we are keeping busy working on it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The "Captain's Quarters" are the expansive master bedroom suite on the third floor with mini kitchen to keep drinks cold, snacks fresh and ice cream frozen until we are ready for a mid-night snack. The views from the large covered patios on levels 2 and 3 have beautiful views of Florida Bay. Plus a commercial elevator can take you to any level in the house. The ground floor has a private apartment just for quests. A swimming pool and jacuzzi just for relaxing in the Florida Sun. You will certainly enjoy this well appointed tropical home.
