This home is very private and still part of Marathon. This elegant concrete stilt home stands on a wide, sand beach, the house prominent on the shore. You won't want to leave once you arrive. Even though it's a short walk to several quaint, Keys-style restaurants, a sheltered deep water marina, and the Dolphin Research Center, this hidden gem feels like a private resort.
It hits you the moment you pass the discreet open gate onto the long forest drive. The natural hardwood hammock ends in a stunning seascape on a 140-foot wide private beach with coconut palms.
Enter the house and the large open living area, which highlights the blue waters of the Gulf 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, high-speed internet and indoor dining for eight. Home also has a soundbox that is portable and can connect to blue tooth so you listen to your music down by the pool area or under the home. Under the home has new seating to eat out by the pool or just sit and relax in the couch area next to the pool.
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 finest steaks on the high-end barbecue by the pool. This home was built for entertaining. After a light breakfast on the balcony, (also seats eight easily) take your morning coffee and stroll through the gardens. There are papayas, bananas, starfruit, mango, avocado, dragon fruit, lemons, and many more exotic trees.

Catch some sun on the beach, dip into the warm Gulf waters for a refreshing swim, or explore the marine life with your 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.

When the water is still and you're quiet, you might even spot a pod of dolphins moving gracefully just offshore.
The day ends in the hot tub, on the balcony, or at the beach with a cool drink as you watch the sunset and paint the sky in its afterglow. Book this home for your next Marathon getaway today!
