731 Waddell Avenue - Casa Marina area - Key West

The asking price on the large and very lovely home at 731 Waddell Avenue in the Casa Marian area of Key West was just reduced to $1,649,000 or $589 per sq ft. CLICK HERE to read the detailed information on this home and see all the nice photos supplied by the listing Realtors.

The listing Realtors (my neighbors, in fact, live about two blocks away from this property) describe the property this way:
"Casa Marina Beauty...circa 2007, this solidly built home features impact windows, hardie plank siding, a custom kitchen, double decks off the front and back, first floor bedroom and bath, and a generous great room to stretch out and relax. The second and third floors all have bedrooms with bathrooms ensuite. Sitting on a large corner lot with plenty of convenient off-street parking, a heated pool and spa with an elegant water feature and a mature landscaping presentation all contribute to this terrific home and the Key West lifestyle."

You can see the Atlantic Ocean from the third floor (5th bedroom) of the new house at 731 Waddell Avenue (at William Street)in Key West's Casa Marina area. CLICK HERE for a view of this really big home. It's only a partial view but that beats no view at all. CLICK HERE for a view of this home with a giant corner lot. The house is a one block walk to both public and private beaches in the area. The Casa Marina Resort has a private beach club, tennis, and gym that you can join so your second home could almost seem like living at the resort itself.

The newly constructed three story home with 2800 sq ft of living space that sits on a 5000 sq ft lot (50'x100'). There is a formal entry with an office/den/guest room and adjoining private bath that doubles as a guest bath. The huge living room (or great room) takes up the right rear half of the house and the kitchen takes up the balance. The kitchen is very large, open, and bright. It was built to accommodate more than two people at a time. You can tell that the architect designed the this home for some serious entertaining.

The master bedroom and en-suite bath take up the front half of the second floor. There is a second story front balcony where you can watch the world very slowly. Two bedrooms share the rear half of that floor. Both have en-suite baths and separate doors opening onto a large second floor rear balcony that overlooks the pool and gardens.

Then there is "nosebleed", the third floor bedroom with en-suite bath. There is even a lighted storage area as well.

The heated "auto clean" pool is 16'x12' and has a spa and waterfall. Mature plants and shrubs surround the pool, deck and patio. Other exterior features include Fencing, Irrigation System, Landscape Lighting, Outdoor Shower, Outdoor Kitchen, Patio, Storage, Water Display.

The nice thing about the Casa Marina area is that you are close to everything, but you are far enough away not to be on top of everything. You can ride your bike to just about any place in Old Town in 5 to 6 minutes. You can drive to the airport to pick up friends at the Key West International Airport in about 5 to 7 minutes. You are a couple of minutes walk to the beaches, public tennis, or join the Casa Marina Beach Club. I live about 4 blocks away from this home, and I love the area.

An interesting take on this listing from Mr. Rock:

Is this property on Waddell Ave still available? Also, 727 Waddell ave available too?

To last reader: the listing expired on December 1st. I'll contact listing Realtor today to find out what the heck is going on.

Both 729 and 731 Waddel Ave became short sales and the asking price was reduced to $1,499,000.

These houses are huge and have a lot of real living space with good sized bedrooms, full baths, private decks off each bedroom, a great pool, and a convenient location.

The asking price at $1,499,000 is much more realistic.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

My photo
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.
