About the property

Close To Key West, Great Fishing, And Great Scuba Diving

Amazing canal front 3 bed conch style house located in prestigious community of Summerland Key Cove. It is the first canal from open water and one of just a few flow-through canals providing excellent water quality. The canal is deep and wide. Expect to see lobsters, crabs and other sea life on your 60 ft. sea wall. You will be surrounded by million dollar homes and just a few minutes boat ride from open water in the Gulf and Atlantic.

Property is close enough to Key West to matter (20 miles) but far enough away for R&R (rest and relaxation). Being on the end of the Key, prevents the irritating noise of Hwy 1 traffic, which is rare to find.

Features include:

Seawall with stepdown to water

Handicap accessible

Large downstairs storage

Great access to gulf and Atlantic.

No bridges on boat ride b to gulf

RV & Motor Coach Storage/Parking Allowed

Large yard

High speed internet

Cable TV

Large outdoor porch of main living area

2 panel sliding glass door that opens the main living area onto the canal

Tile flooring throughout home

42" Flat Screen TV in Living Room

Swim canal

Ladder on seawall to get in and out of swim canal

Full size washer & dryer

Deep/wide/flow-through canal

60 ft. Sea wall

Fisher’s paradise

No road noise from Highway 1 (far enough away)

About Craig

I'm a professional engineer who loves the water. I am also a commercial pilot hinse the home on a airport. I live in SC most of the time where I have a electrical engineering company. I spend as much time in Florida as I can but when I'm not there I enjoy watching the tides go in and out from my porch on Edisto Island.

Craig purchased this house in 2016

Why Craig chose Summerland Key

I bought this property because it had everything I wanted. It is a very warm and welcoming neighborhood, great fishing with access to the Atlantic and the Gulf, a runway to land on, a place to park the plane in the yard, and did I mention it was close to Key West ?

What makes this house unique

Home is on ground level so no stairs or elevators. If you have mobility problems, the property is easy to access due to walkways from the car to the rear of the house.

Adorable house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house may look little on the outside, but it's perfect on the inside! 3 spacious bedrooms with every amenity you could want. The neighborhood is so nice, the neighbors are friendly and Craig is a dream to work with. The only downside is leaving!

Clean and neat

  • 5 of 5

Nice neighbors, Canal in the back yard very clean and provides easy access to ocean for kayacking, fishing, etc. Nice shade tree in backyard. A few planes use the airstrip across the road in front of the house making for interesting entertainment. Close enough to Key West to allow experiencing the unique sights and activities of this one of a kind city.

Wonderful Ground Level Home That Is Well Maintained And Clean

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time our family rented a home in the Keys and we could not have chosen a better location, home or owner to work with. The location was close to everything that we wanted or needed. We took our 22' Boston Whaler with us and it was so nice to be able to dock the boat and just hop on and off each day at our leisure. The house was super clean and obviously well cared for. It had everything that we needed. We rented bikes and kayaks and utilized them everyday! There was a gas grill outside and we utilized it almost everyday. Craig was super friendly and helpful. My husband is a big fisherman and a neighbor sent us numerous coordinates for the best fishing spots and my husband caught fish every day! We will definitely return and hope to make this place a yearly vacation spot for our family!

August Purple House Review

  • 5 of 5

This Purple house may be on the small side, but it has everything you need. The A/C units are amazing and you can out right freeze in that house in August!!! The canal is super clean, and we swam in it almost everyday. The house is clean and the neighborhood is quite. Out front is a airstrip, and is really cool to see planes come and go. Having no stairs is also a huge bonus for a Key's Home.
