Pretty as a Picture - 720 Passover Lane - Key West

If you are looking for the pretty as a picture Key West Cottage that sits on a secluded lane in Old Town, you need to see the new listing at 720 Passover Lane. The listing Realtor describes the property this way:
"Tucked away at the end of a quiet, walking Old Town Lane sits this beautifully renovated historic home. Manhattan meets Key West in the level of decor and finishes chosen for this historic jewel. Wonderful vaulted ceiling in the living room with open floor plan and chef's kitchen. Bright and airy dining/family room with glass doors all around to view the gorgeous tropical garden. Lovely master suite with loft and ensuite bathroom, bamboo wood floors and decorator touches. Granite floors add elegance, stained glass accents and Rick Worth painted doors add Key West Charm. The Ultimate Historic Oasis for the discerning buyer."

This property sits at the far end of Passover Lane. This is a walking lane so you will never see a Conch Train or Trolley Car in front of the house. In fact you will hardly see anybody at that location as only three other houses are located on that lane.

With that being said, the property is located in just about the center of Old Town. The Historic Key West Seaport is a five minute walk to the north (down Margaret Street). Duval Street is a five minute walk to the west going down either Windsor Lane or Southard Street. St Mary's of the Sea Catholic Church is a five minute walk to the south (Truman at Windsor Lane). The Coffee Mill, Old Town Gym and Island Gym are located within a five to seven minute walk. And the best damned fried chicken in Key West is located at Dion's which is located inside the Citgo Gas Station at the corner of Truman and White. Scoff if you want, it is the best in Key West. And it's only a six minute walk back to the house or a two minute bike ride to the beach where you eat your chix and watch the chicks.

That's the thing about living in Old Town. You can walk to just about everywhere you really need to go. Season is almost here and that means the local theatre companies will start their new productions. The Red Barn and Waterfront Theaters are each a five to seven minute walk from Passover Lane. Tropic Cinema is located just off Duval on Eaton Street. There is always something interesting playing there.

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.
