The very cute two bedroom Key West cottage located at 815 Eaton Street is offered as a short sale at the asking price of $325,000. The listing Realtor describes the house this way:
"Happy home. Quaint wrap around people watching porches frame this whimsical and romantic gingerbread Conch cottage. Lots of natural light and windows. Lovely Old Town neighborhood between William and Margaret. Relaxing retreat just around the corner from the historic seaport, orange and gold sunsets, tall ships, great food, tasty drinks and lively entertainment. Walk or bike to everything fun and interesting. Duval Street art and culture just a hop, skip and a jump! Excellent location for fun-lovers. Beautiful wood floors, 5 ft side yard, nice sized back yard. Pretty little front yard with a white picket fence. Huge cistern would be a great wine cellar."The house has 725 sq ft of living space and was updated a couple of years ago. There are nice new floors and the kitchen looks relatively new. The second bedroom probably works better as a place for a child or as an office. It would be difficult to use as a full time bedroom.
The owner advised me that there is room for an 8' x 14' pool at the rear of the property and that the pool could be built to code setback requirements. (CLICK HERE to see what an 8'x 14' pool could look like.) The house needs a little re-working in my opinion (not because it needs fixed but because it could function better as an escape place with pool).

This house does not have off street parking but it has just about everything else a second home buyer wants (minus the pool).
This house is offered as a short sale. The listing Realtor told me that the lender has already agreed to the asking price and that a closing may be able to occur within 60 days or so.
