Enjoy endless open water views from anywhere on this acre-sized, Gulf-front estate. Coconut palms, private hot tub & pool, boat ramp, and a newly built private dock great for catching fish or spectacular sunsets. Like a resort, you can play giant chess on the beach, win at ping pong, take out a kayak, or paddle board or stroll through fabulous gardens.
This home is a private oasis but still part of Marathon. It hits you the moment you pass the discreet open gate into the long forest drive. The natural hardwood hammock ends in a stunning seascape. This elegant concrete stilt home stands on a 140 foot wide, private sand beach. You won't want to leave once you get here.
Even though it's a short walk to several quaint, Keys-style restaurants, and the Dolphin Research Center, this hidden gem feels like your own private resort. And best of all, theres no need to get up early to reserve a recliner!
Enter the house and be instantly mesmerized by the view of the gulf. The large open living area highlights the blue waters through a wall of glass doors to the massive balcony. The great room boasts elegant, white, top-grain leather seating, a wide flatscreen TV with DVD player, cable, Netflix, free WiFi, and indoor dining for eight. A portable bluetooth soundbox is provided for your enjoyment. Use it in house, by the pool, or in the lower level recreational area.
The fabulous gourmet kitchen keeps your chef in the conversation. Custom granite counters, a chic tiled backsplash, stainless appliances, and lots of gadgets add to the ambiance. Keeping it outside? You can grill your steaks on the high-end barbecue by the pool or over the beachside fire pit. This home was built for entertaining.
Four ample bedrooms, each with a tv, three with queen beds and ocean views, the fourth, with two extra long twin beds and large windows overlooking the tropical gardens. Three full bathrooms are finished with travertine stone or tile. This home sleeps eight easily. And of course, there's a new front load laundry in the hallway.
After a light breakfast on the balcony, (also seats eight easily) take your morning coffee and stroll through the young orchard full of exotic tropical fruit trees and plants like dragon fruit, sapodilla and carambola. Or, take your stroll down the 285 foot peer, a great time to spot sealife. Catch some sun on the beach, dip into the warm Gulf waters for a refreshing swim, or explore the marine life from the dock with provided mask and snorkel. Use the private boat ramp to launch your medium/small boat or jet skis during high tide, or use the kayaks or paddle boards for a little exercise. Boating and fishing enthusiasts will love the addition of a newly constructed long dock with dolphin piles for safe mooring.
Stiff muscles? Relax in the hot tub, then plunge into the pool. Or just relax on one of the many recliners or Adirondack chairs and be mesmerized by the sea (we counted more than 60 chairs or loungers). Enjoy a good book, watch the pelicans race for the best fish, or listen to the high-pitched call of the local osprey. When the water is still and you're quiet, you might spot a pod of dolphins moving gracefully just offshore or a manatee swimming under the dock.
The day ends in the hot tub, on the balcony, or at the beach with a cool drink as you watch the sunset paint the sky in its afterglow. This home features a seemingly endless array of amenities that includes a movie library, a book library, music, adult games, board games, ping pong table, children's toys, crib and bedding available, high
chair, 32-inch Roku TVs in three bedrooms, 32-inch TV and DVD player in the twin bedroom, beach bocce ball set, and even a Keurig coffee maker.
