Won't You Be My Neighbor?

This is a very dramatic yet comfortable home set in a tranquil and private garden in the Casa Marina Area. The Von Phister Street house, designed by architect Matthew Fowler and built in 2000, has a soaring two-story living space with a wall of glass overlooking the heated swimming pool. There are multiple outdoor living spaces in the lush grounds planned by landscape designer Carl Gilley. There is a gleaming state of the art kitchen with separate butler's pantry. the master bedroom has generous closet space and a wonderful bath which passes through to a tropical outdoor shower. Floors are Egyptian limestone and bamboo. This property is being offered furnished with pieces especially chosen for this home.

The 2014 sq ft house has 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths and sits on a 4488 sq ft lot. It is offered at the price of $1,595,000 or $792 per sq ft. Not a bad price. I know the house and area well since it is across the street from where I live. As I have so often mentioned the location of a house has a big impact on its value. This house is in a very good, quite area with most of the surrounding homes being of equal or higher value. CLICK HERE for more details and photos of the house.

This house is different from many Key West homes because of its avant garde architecture. It is not the typical Key West conch house at all. Instead, it is a very dramatic modern interpretation on island living. The major living areas open onto or look onto the front garden or the rear pool area. Like many Key West homes, the living area opens directly onto the pool area so it seems as though the livingroom extends to the outside. This is the kind of home empty nestor's or a gay couple would find very inviting. It has everyday utility for a couple with the extra living space that can double as guest quarters when the occasion warrants.

Give me a call at 305-766-2642 and let me show you this lovely Casa Marina Area home. Won't you be my neighbor?

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.
