Key Largo’s Ocean Reef has a new community
Aimed at merging modern luxury with the upscale tradition of Key Largo’s Ocean Reef Club, 121 Marina is the first new residential condominium development to be built within the community in nearly two decades.
The project, which includes 29 three- and four-bedroom residences, is situated on the marina in the heart of the Ocean Reef complex, which is at the northern tip of Key Largo and has a history dating to a fishing camp that started in 1948. It has 2,500 acres, two 18-hole golf courses, shopping, an airstrip and school from pre-kindergarten to eighth grade.
The condominiums were designed by Stofft Cooney Architects and the Coral Gables-based architecture and interior design agency Edge of Architecture. Units start at $4.6 million and are configured in three-story buildings. Floor plans range from 2,971 square feet to more than 4,695 under air.
The designers emphasize fine finishes to accommodate an entertaining- and outdoor-oriented lifestyle. Kitchens have Italian cabinetry, stone countertops, Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, plus an integrated espresso/cappuccino bar area with Sub-Zero wine coolers.
Each residence, prewired for high-speed internet and smart home technology, also boasts a terrace of more than 500 square feet-—with some more than 1,000. All feature summer kitchens with a barbecue and sink, as well as sunset views.
There are two parking spaces and one golf cart space per residence, along with electric vehicle charging stations.
121 Marina, which has 750 feet of marina footage, has a prime position within the Ocean Reef complex; it’s within walking distance to the Buccaneer Island swimming lagoon and beach, Carysfort Hall and the Fishing Village shops. It includes a junior Olympic-sized swimming pool with lap lane and deep lounge steps. Private pool amenities include cabanas, sun deck and barbecue area.
A fitness center overlooks the pool deck and marina, and other recreation areas include a putting green and yoga lawn. There’s also a special club room planned for children, to be outfitted with multimedia facilities and gaming tables.
All residents of the controlled access community will have access to personalized concierge services and private, individual storage areas, which are considered a premium find in the Florida Keys.
