Love Muscle? Buy this House in Key West!

Love Muscle? Buy the appropriately named "Love Muscle House" located at 819 Whitehead Street in Key West, Florida. If you are expecting kink, forget it. This place does rock, however.

The listing Realtor describes the property this way:
"Tropical little gem in Old Town. 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths. Large deck and room for a pool. Mexican tile and bamboo flooring throughout. Fully renovated, new bathrooms and kitchen. This festive house comes fully furnished. Priced right."

The Love Muscle House is offered at $475,000 or $447 per sq ft. This place could be the right size for someone looking for a Key West getaway. It measures 1062 sq gt including the second floor (where the master bedroom and master bath are located) and includes the guest cottage at the rear. The lot measures 2874 sq ft and it is big enough for a real pool, not just a dip pool.

I showed this colorful house last week and somehow managed to lose the photos I took. There is a cute smaller bedroom at the front of the house. A spiral staircase leads to second floor which has a really good sized master suite. The views up there are great. The living room and kitchen share the main part of the house and that space totally rocks. There is a very large bath at the rear of the house. The cottage at the back is oh so private and very sharp. CLICK HERE to get more details on this house and view photos of the interior and exterior.

The Love Muscle House is located 1/2 block north of the Hemingway House and one block west of Duval Street. There is lots of foot traffic, vehicular traffic, trolley cars, and bicyclists during the daytime. But the street reverts to typically quiet Key West residential after sunset.

If you'd like to checkout The Love Muscle House please call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Coastal Realty Inc. in Key West, Florida.

Sounds like a deal that would be hard to beat.

Any idea why that name was chosen?

I have no idea where the name came from. And the wording "Established 1892" is odd in that the house was built in 1928 or so says the Monroe County Appraiser.

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.
