Waterfront - Transient Licensed - Key West

The Coconut Mallory Condominiums are located at the far east end of the Island of Key West. They sit at the edge of Cow Key Channel and provide immediate deep water access.
There are three units left unsold. Two of the units are one bedrooms that are priced at $250,000 and $260,000. Each has a transient license and a boat slip. But the one I want to tell you about is a two bedroom two bath unit on the top floor (the building only has two floors). It occupies one-half of that floor and has the premium water view. This unit is offered at $450,000 or $400 per sq. ft. Like the other condominiums at Coconut Mallory, it has a transient license and a boat slip. It comes fully furnished and ready perhaps to turn Cow Key Channel into a cash cow for the new owner.

The listing Realtor describes Unit 201 this way:
"Boat slip & transient license! Second floor unit boasting an open floor plan with water views. Elevator access from pol area to private wrap around balcony accessed from living area and bedrooms. Recently renovated kitchen and baths. Offered fully furnished ready to move in today or start earning rental income. Dock Fees associated with the boat slip are $1,140.00 paid one time annually. Condominium Fees paid monthly include all utilities, electric, water, sewer garbage & cable along with exterior insurance and building/common area maintenance."

There are many condos offered for sale right now in Key West that have transient licenses that are priced similarly to this unit. You might be able to buy a Shipyard Unit in Truman Annex with two bedrooms and one bath unit with 680 square feet for around $450,000. Shipyard is very popular with returning vacationers because of its easy walking access to everything in Old Town. The units with transient licenses have some restrictions not applicable to Coconut Mallory. The Shipyard location is a valuable asset indeed. On the other hand, you might be able to purchase a 1380 square foot unit with two bedrooms and two baths with a transient license at 1800 Atlantic. 1800 Atlantic is located directly on the ocean and has beach access, tennis courts, a huge spa, and a huge pool. Many returning vacationers prefer the 1800 Atlantic location over Old Town because of the waterfront amenities and larger sized units. Units with transient licenses at 1800 Atlantic do not have any restriction on the number of days per year a unit may be rented.

Unit No. 201 at Coconut Mallory has 1126 square feet of newly remodeled interior space and wrap around covered lanais. The living room and both bedrooms have immediate access to the lanais and this makes the interior spaces seem even larger. The are no neighbors across the courtyard or next door to watch your every move. The only "neighbor" occupies the west one-half of the floor and that unit has no view. The neighbors to the south, east, and north are open skies, some palm trees, and the waterfront where the Coconut Mallory Marina is located CLICK HERE and CLICK HERE.
This unit has a real killer view of the adults only pool just to the north. (There is another pool that does permit children. That pool is secluded and surrounded by palm trees.)

Unit 201 has a large covered parking space with easy access to the enclosed stairway or elevator. That means you do not need to get beat up by the occasional rainstorm or blistering heat when you are bringing in the groceries. There are no bowling alley long hallways or tourists to dodge on scooters zooming around the parking lot. When you are home, you are home.

The interiors were very recently tastefully renovated to provide both utility and style. The space was designed for a lot of potential use but it looks great. I recently took some interior photos. CLICK HERE, CLICK HERE,CLICK HERE,CLICK HERE,CLICK HERE.

Life is full of choices. If you want a place in Key West to make your permanent home or that you can rent out to help pay for itself, there are many options available in the mid $400,000 price range. Unit No. 201 at Coconut Mallory is one of them. Please give me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642 a call to schedule a showing. These units cannot be showed when they are occupied.

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.
