Folks who are familiar with Key West know that it has many unique neighborhoods. The Meadows area is one of those. It is located just east of Old Town and is bounded by U.S. Navy housing to the north, the Garrison Bight Marina to the east, and Truman Avenue to the south. The area is primarily made up of traditional cigar maker cottages, eyebrow houses, two story conch homes, and there is a smattering of buildings that have been condominiumized or made into apartments. There is no commercial activity in the interior parts of The Meadows, but there are commercial operations on the perimeter. I estimate that about 80% of the homes have been renovated at least once during the past 20 years. Unlike Old Town, most of the homes here are owner occupied. The streets tend to be more narrow than the streets in Old Town, so most are one way. (The exception is Georgia Street that is extra broad.)
The compound at 1110-1112 Georgia Street is a 2 bedroom,2 bath home plus a guest house cottage with 1 bedroom and 1 bath plus a detached office structure. The compound is situated on two lots and has off-street parking. Features include a bright Florida room with French doors that open onto a beautiful heated pool & waterfall. The cottage has its own kitchen & living room, tucked away with Dade County Pine walls, hardwood & tile floors and vaulted ceilings. Special details that complete the tropical charm includes brick walkways, private outdoor shower, beautiful covered porches and complete privacy with fencing & lush tropical foliage all located in a wonderful neighborhood.
This lovely 1693 square foot property on a 7197 square foot lot was just listed at $1,395,000 or $806 per square foot. CLICK HERE for more information on this home.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

- Key West, Florida, United States
- I first read about Key West in a magazine called "After Dark" sometime in the mid 1970's. But it wasn't until March 1984 that I made my first visit to the island that would become my home. I had two weeks for a vacation and reserved a room at Colours Guesthouse (now Marrero's Guest House) for one week. I thought that if I didn't like Key West, I could always go back to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale for the rest of my trip. But after a couple of days in Key West, that was no longer a consideration. But when I wanted to extend my stay for the extra week I found there was no room at the inn. The guesthouse owner did find me a room at LaTeDa, the infamous guesthouse/restaurant. That's a story I'll write another day. But those two weeks in Key West gave me the realization that I had found Paradise. Key West has been my home since 1993 and my only regret is that it took me so long to get here. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties CRI. Let me help you find your new home or business in Paradise. Living in Paradise is not a slogan, it's a way of life.
