1418 Leon Street

Just Listed: 1418 Leon Street, Key West, Fl. Offered at only $3.6 million or $1,161 per sq ft.

If you aren't familiar with Key West, and maybe even if you are, you may not know where Leon Street is located. So CLICK HERE. The house is located one block east of White and one block north of Flagler. So it is near the Casa Marina area, but not quite there. The area homes are predominantly mid century and have been renovated into larger and more usable living spaces for today's lifestyles. The streets are broad and tree lined, and most of the yards are fenced and gated in the front, sides, and rear for privacy.

The house boasts outstanding architecture and has spectacular garden views from the widows walk of this elegant four bedroom home. Marble floored entry, 30' living room, 10' ceilings, and connecting dining/living porch that overlooks tropical gardens, flagstone terraces, pool and waterfall. State of the art kitchen including wine cooler and walk in pantry. There is a charming dormered room that may be suitable for another bedroom/bath, office or gym. The master suite has 12' vaulted ceilings, walk in closet and glorious master bath. Car parking for two. The house is very large by Key West standards (3100 sq ft) and sits on a 6335 sq ft lot. CLICK HERE for more info and additional photos.

This is not my listing, but I was in the house in mid October. The owner is a local architect who has done several notable projects in Key West. One of the workmen told me that the owner is a stickler for perfection. He actually put in another way, but I'll not repeat what he said.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

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.
