If you did click the link you saw that the house has the following: 5 bedrooms, 4 baths in the main house and a detached one bedroom one bath guest house. The main house has a fireplace in the living room, a formal dining room, a casual dining area, a new pool, and cabana.The custom kitchen is finished in granite, Viking professional appliances, wine cooler, pass-through, breakfast nook, computer station & walk-in pantry. The spacious master suite includes a luxurious bath & custom closet. Beautiful outdoor living space with large new pool, waterfall, spa, shower & a fully equipped kitchen.

This property was listed for $5,300,000. Now the property is offered as a short sale at the incredible price of $2,995,000 or $786 per sq ft. For the buyer with the bucks and an eye for value, I would point out that adjacent development parcels are also available. That means to me that one could enlarge the already spacious grounds to create an even larger living space.

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.
