About Karen Jolley

Mark and Karen are from Michigan - a little town called Brighton just north of Ann Arbor. Mark is a retired CPA and Karen a retired Real Estate Broker. They spend time with family in Durham NC and in Ontario Canada on a little island called Pelee. They love water. Having had a sailboat on Lake Erie in Michigan, they have almost always planned vacations around water. They have sailed in the Virgin Islands many times. This is a vacation home and they love the area, the weather and the way Stuart has become a destination vacation location.

Karen Jolley purchased this House in 2016

Why Karen Jolley chose Stuart

Mark and Karen bought this house right before Thanksgiving 2016 from the builder. It is new but set in an older neighborhood. The house next door is a Spanish style cottage built over 100 years ago. The whole neighborhood is a mix of cottages, professional businesses and private homes and looks like it belongs in Key West. This area was attractive to them because the weather is usually warmer in the winter due to the Gulf Stream hitting along this coast and warming the area more than other areas of Florida. And, Stuart has been so beautifully developed. Mark and Karen also are foodies and love trying all the great restaurants. The best part is that almost everything is walkable and the location makes walking to dinner an experience. Grab ice cream or fudge at Kilwins after and take an evening stroll. Or get up early for a morning power walk and end up at the Blue Door for a french press coffee on the outdoor patio. Does it get much better???

What makes this House unique

The best part of this home is the neighborhood and location. It is a completely new home inside and out - including the furnishings, and the neighborhood is so walkable. Early mornings are great on the front porch or going for a walk to the local coffee shops and along the boardwalk. Visitors often pass by this house slowly - looking and enjoying. They love the cottage look and they love walking the neighborhood with all the quaint and cute homes, cottages and businesses.

Walking distance to many shops, boutiques and restaurants - everything from good bbq to good vegan to great, high end chocolate being made just a couple blocks from the house. Communication was always quick and easy with Karen the owner. Electronic lockbox made coming and going very easy.

                                                            Very nice and great location to nice restaurants and the water!

This property has obviously been upgraded recently with premium appliances. We really enjoyed the lovely home and had a wonderful time. Hope to return! Steve
