826 Olivia Old Town Key West -- Short Sale

I wrote about 826 Olivia Street a while back. I am totally surprised that this little gem has not sold because it is so sweet. Let me tell you the negatives before I expound on the positives. It has no off street parking, there is no pool or room for one, and it is located across the street from the Key West Cemetery. Oh, the house next door to the east isn't as cute as it could be. (But the house directly behind this home is gorgeous and it is on the market for $2,595,000.)

This charming home, with extraordinary ambiance and comfortable, convenient floor plan, is located in Old Town Key West. Upon entering the large Great Room, with soaring wooden, beamed Cathedral ceilings and wood floors, you view the landscaped yard with deck, patio and Jacuzzi. The windows, and the French doors on 3 sides, make this space spectacular! The kitchen, which is open and airy, lends itself perfectly for entertaining, is all new with wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances, granite counters and tile floors. The bathroom, also all new, features granite counters, neutral tile and new cabinetryIt is now offered at only $645,000 or $640 per sq ft. This is a short sale so you may be able to negotiate an even better deal. CLICK HERE to checkout what the listing Realtor/Owner says about this property.

The property has been successfully rented as a seasonal vacation rental. CLICK HERE to see the vacation rental company's website for the cigar maker's cottage.

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.
