Grand Bahmian - 1123 Washington Street - Key West

Just listed, but not by me, 1123 Washington Street is this Grand Bahamian Style home in the Casa Marina area near the beaches. This home was built (not renovated) in 2002 and captures the essence of island living.

The listing Realtor describes 1123 Washington Street this way:
"Stunning and Elegant home in the highly desirable Casa Marina neighborhood. Bahamian architecture featuring high ceilings, great porches and incredible finishes. Crown molding, chef's kitchen with designer cabinets and open floor plan. First floor master suite overlooking lush tropical yard, pool and spa. Dramatic staircase with vaulted ceilings adds an air of sophistication and brightness. An Exquisite Island Retreat for The Most Discerning Buyer!"
Let me add that this 1841 sq ft homes has three bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths and sits on a large 4973 sq ft lot (44.4'X 111'deep). CLICK HERE to read more info and see several photos of the interior and exterior.

1123 Washington Street is listed at $1,195,000 or $649 per sq ft. Listen-up! This is a real bargain at this price and at this location. There just aren't very many nice three bed and three bath homes with beautiful pools that are located in good locations in Key West. I just created a "comprables list". The list only includes similar homes in the Old Town and Casa Marina areas. CLICK HERE to view the list so you can do your own comparison shopping. I have written about some of the homes on the list before.

I live a block away. I love this neighborhood. It is convenient to everything. But for the most part it is really nice and quiet. I can bike to the gym or Fausto's Grocery on White Street in about two minutes. The beaches are a five minute walk. I can get to the airport in about five minutes by car. On July the 4th I could watch the fireworks shot off at Higgs Beach from my pool. Key West is a great place to live. And 1123 Washington Street is a house you can pretty much move right into.

If you would like to see 1123 Washington Street, or any of the other houses on the list above, or any other house in Key West, please call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties in Key West Florida. Our office is an affiliate of Christie's Great Estates.

Would be interesting to see your list of comparables but only this house is included. Are there more?

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.
