MARATHON, FL - A waterfront home at the Sister's Creek Inlet, on Corte del Brisas, in Marathon just sold for $7.6 million, making it the third property to sell in the Florida Keys for over $7 million in 2021.
The property was marketed and successfully sold by agents Carolyn Ambler and Kelly K. Shaw, of American Caribbean, Christie's International Real Estate.
Custom built by the sellers, in 2001 and 2004, the two attached homes are a perfect family complex providing 12,800 square feet of living area, prominently situated at the edge of Sister's Creek Inlet with open ocean views and features 200 feet of pristine sandy beach. The property hosts a main residence and guest home, caretaker's apartment, home theater, separate office and gym, along with two pools and a deep-water pier dock.
"This amazing property was designed to maximize the stunning views of the ocean," said Kelly K. Shaw, Broker Associate. "Homes of this caliber have been in high demand recently, and this sale confirms the ultra-luxury real estate market in the Florida Keys is one buyers are seeking."
One year after the COVID-19 pandemic began, homes for sale in the Florida Keys have seen a rapid increase in sales pace. With the change to remote working, homeowners flocked from their primary residences to take refuge in the Keys, enjoying the advantage of the outdoor environment and all of the island community.
"The sellers custom-built the homes for their family and friends to gather and as a place of respite from busy lives. The buyers were looking to upgrade their FL Keys vacation home and found that this amazing waterfront residence exceeded all their requirements," said Carolyn Ambler, Realtor Associate. "This property had a lot of interest, but ultimately, the successful buyers closed in just 11 days, with an all-cash contract."
"As the only Christie's International Affiliate in the Florida Keys, we can provide our clients with extraordinary levels of market exposure and white-glove service," said Joy C. Martin, Broker-Owner of American Caribbean Real Estate. "Carolyn and Kelly were able to utilize the luxury outlets we provide to our customers in addition to developing a strategic marketing plan for this estate that included digital and print press ventures internationally."
As we continue into 2021, the real estate market continues to be a motivating factor in our economic boost. We can expect demand to remain high in all sectors of our market, including the ultra-luxury sector. As the Christie's International Affiliate, American Caribbean will remain the leader in luxury standards, with influence globally, while maintaining their local market expertise.
