804 Elizabeth Old Town Key West Historic Eyebrow






804 Elizabeth Street in Old Town Key West is a quintessential classic Key West “eyebrow” style home complete with two saw tooth additions. One sawtooth addition is the formal dining room with vaulted ceiling. Just behind the dining room is the second sawtooth addition (probably the "cook house" in olden times) with its authentic naturally weathered wood vaulted ceiling. The owner has been careful to preserve the Dade County pine walls in the older parts of the house. Upstairs there are even some of the original floors. This home is a great example of the transition from old eyebrow house to a comfortable home that reflects today’s lifestyle. There is a new kitchen in the rear that overlooks the stunning 36 foot pool and gardens. This home was the subject of the TV program “In a Fix”, a few years ago. Truth be known, the owner had to redo what the TV program "fixed". But it was fun to watch.

I've shown this house several times and I absolutely love it. It is a charm to show. The house invites you to sit down and relax. Not a lot of houses do that. But this one does. This is a house you could be comfortable to live in. The rooms are people sized. They aren't too grand. They are not too small. They are livable. And that pool is incredible. The only complaint I've heard is that there aren't enough trees or foliage. That's fixable: plant more.

The master bedroom is located on the ground floor at the rear overlooking the pool. There is an adjacent office that could be remodeled to create a new master bath and master bed suite. And there is room to expand the master bedroom area if desired.

804 Elizabeth sits just a few feet below to the top of Solares Hill. It is a short three minute walk to Duval. The famous Seven Fish Restaurant is a one minute walk. The 800 block of Elizabeth has a mix of restored homes and houses that have been in place of decades. It is a real Key West neighborhood. This 4 bed 2 bath Eyebrow House has 1940 sq ft and sits on a large 5876 sq ft lot. It is offered at $1,250,000 or $644 per sq ft. CLICK HERE for more details and additional photos of the property.

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.
