Just Listed: 916 Fleming Street, Old Town, Key West, Florida. No it is not my listing. But if you have the glue, you need to checkout this stunning new addition to one of the best streets in Key West.
Two years ago a friend who owned the house next door at 912 Fleming was in the process of starting the renovation of 916 Fleming when he passed away. His estate sold the property very quickly at a very good price at the time. The new owner completed the demolition of the interior of 916 Fleming and created his own vision of how to redevelop the property. For years the property had been known as the Baker House and all I can say is that it wasn't pretty. CLICK HERE and CLICK HERE to see pics of what the property looked like before renovation.
Fast Forward to today and the revelation of an exquisite designer Old Town Home offered turnkey, stunning furnishings with state of the art amenities included. Dramatic great room welcomes you with coffered ceilings, wood walls, sophisticated gourmet kitchen, wet bar & beautifully appointed living & dining area. Indoor/outdoor living room finished in IPE flooring, pool, waterfall & new guest house. Unsurpassed craftsmanship & custom designer materials grace this home including walnut counter tops, marble selections, bamboo & sea grass treatments, plantation shutters, generator. This gem comes fully furnished with 9 flat screen T.V.'s, all accessories, most of the art & linens. A Truly impeccable work of art to be appreciated by the most discriminating buyer. Offered at $3,400,000 or $1063 per sq ft. CLICK HERE for more photos and additional information on this home.
The home two doors west at 908 Fleming recently sold for $3,600,000 ($1,158 per square foot) and is undergoing a massive remodel. That house is huge and sits on a huge lot. The house across the street at 911 Fleming sold in 2007 after 120 days on the market for $4,340,000 or $1401 per sq ft. The other homes on the block are not as expensive, but they are very attractive and share what I consider to be an excellent location. The homes are a short 5 minute walk to Duval Street and an equally short walk to the Historic Key West Seaport.
Of course if you are looking for a house that is perhaps just a wee bit smaller and maybe not quite as expensive, there are several available in all price ranges--even in Old Town.

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.
