825 Ashe Street - Old Town - Key West






A couple of years ago I purchased the right to use the image of the quintessential Key West Cottage from Kimberlee Clark, the artist who created it. CLICK HERE to see more of Kimberlee's art. She has a lot of great Key West images.

When I decided to write about 825 Ashe Street in Old Town Key West I thought, that's the house Kimberlee used as the model for my logo. Maybe it was; maybe it wasn't. You decide.

This is how the listing Realtor describes 825 Ashe Street: "This historical Conch charmer in the heart of Old Town Key West has been beautifully restored with great attention to detail. Located on a quiet street in a very desirable neighborhood this home has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom downstairs and 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom upstairs (with it's own private entrance). Dade county pine and bald cypress throughout, wood floors, guest cottage/art studio, two car off-street parking with carport, cocktail/dip pool and rear deck area are just some of the amenities you will appreciate." CLICK HERE for more detailed information and photos of this beautiful property. 825 Ashe is now priced at $699,000 or $567 per sq ft for this 1232 sq ft home on a 2530 sq ft lot on a quiet street in Old Town Key West.

For the uninitiated, Ashe Street is a small two-way street that runs between Olivia on the south and Southard on the north. It is one-half block to the west of White Street. And it is one block east of Frances Street, the eastern border of the Key West Cemetery. I feel the need to explain where Ashe Street is located, because many locals don't even know. And that means you probably won't see any Conch Trains or tour buses on the street. And I doubt that you will see many tourists on bikes or motor bikes. But Ashe Street is close enough for a short walk to Duval, the Historic Key West Seaport, or the neighborhood coffee shops, art galleries, gyms or small restaurants on White near Truman.

I have been warning readers for quite a while that they should not put off buying too long. Well, the number of really nice houses like this is shrinking. I urge serious buyers to take a look at this house as a potential dream house.

If you would like to see 825 Ashe Street or any other charming house in Key West, please call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642 or e-mail me at kw1101v@aol.com.

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.
