Pied-à-terre pour vous? 526 Wiiiam Street - Old Town - Key West

The term "Pied-à-terre" comes to mind when you first see 526 William Street Unit #3. This sharp 2 bedroom 1 and 1/2 bath two story unit is located on the second and third floors of the chic Delancey Hall Condominium. The living room and kitchen share the second floor space with a half bath and the interior stairway to the third floor bedrooms and bath. The front second balcony is shared with the unit across the hall. Other units in the building have their own private outdoor spaces.

There are only five units in this building that was very tastefully renovated in 2001. The front just oozes class. The side gate provides entry to the shared pool and bricked courtyard area. There is no off street parking. But since most of the surrounding properties are single family homes, street parking is not an issue.

The listing Realtor described this unit this way:
"Short Sale! Prime Old Town Locatation: 2bedroom 1.5 bath two-story condo. Delancey Hall Old Town Building. Spacious second floor plan with open living area, granite counters and custom cabinets. Dade Co. Pine wallsn Brazillian purple-heart hardwood floors, Italian marble floors, cathedral ceilings with crown molding. Brick terrace with landscaping and heated pool. Entry Bell & intercom on front. Convenient to Library, restaurants, Duval St and Waterfront. Most desirable William St block between Fleming and Southard Streets."
CLICK HERE to read more detailed information on Unit #3 that is priced to sell at $365,000. Don't get greedy. This is a price the listing Realtor believes that the mortgage lender will accept. So there is no sense is wasting printing ink or brain matter on a low ball offer. It will not fly.

I co-listed this unit in 2004-2005. I held several open houses at this property. Everybody loved it and the location. The only problem I know about this unit is the height of the bathroom ceiling. It is tucked into the roof and a tall person (someone over 6') will have to bend the neck to the side while taking a shower. Other than that the rooms are comfortably sized. This unit would make an excellent getaway place or one could live here full time.

If you would like to see 526 William Street please call me, Gary Thomas 305-766-2642. The unit is rented and requires 24 hour notice to be shown.

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.
