After Thanksgiving - Open House Saturday - 4:00 to 6:00 PM

Preferred Properties CRI is hosting an Open House on Saturday between 4:00 P.M. and 6:00 P.M. Stop by 416 Elizabeth Street and 712 Southard Street and 1110 Curry Lane to view four beautiful Conch homes with great Old Town locations.

416 Elizabeth Street is a rather unassuming property consisting of two houses and one cottage with six en suite bedrooms and seven baths. Built circa 1873, the historic main house features a peerless restoration, with details such as polished hardwood floors, with the original windows and doors restored. A veranda overlooking the swimming pool and lush grounds is carefully built around an ancient Spanish lime tree. A galley kitchen includes stainless-steel counter tops and appliances and custom cabinets. This historic gem is a classic example of the casual, yet elegant, indoor and outdoor living lifestyle for which Key West is famous. Thomas McGuane, known for his "92 in the Shade" and "Panama", resided at 416 Elizabeth St. CLICK HERE for more photos and info on this elegant property.

712 Southard Street is a beautifully appointed shotgun style Conch Cottage on the best block in Key West. The house has two nice size bedrooms and bathrooms, a great new kitchen with cathedral ceiling that opens onto the glass tiled kidney shaped heated pool surrounded by tropical landscaping. And it is located only two blocks from world famous Duval Street. CLICK HERE for more info and photos of 712 Southard Street.

804 Elizabeth Street is a classic Eyebrow house with sawtooth additions has two driveways. It has been recently renovated with new kitchen, baths, ac/heating systems, and upgraded plumbing and electrical systems. The ceilings have been vaulted in the dining room and den and there is a new heated swimming pool. And there are two off street parking spots. CLICK HERE for more info and photos of this beautiful home.

1110 Curry Lane is located on one of Key West's hidden lanes between Fleming and Southard Streets and sandwiched between White and Frances Streets. The lane is only one block long and it has several ultra sweet homes like this one.

Please join me, Gary Thomas, at 712 Southard Street and my fellow Realtors at 416 Elizabeth Street to view both of these charming Key West homes just before the sun sets and the evening begins. You will get a chance to see how wonderful life can be in your own Key West Conch House, whether it is a cottage or a great house.

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.
