1217 Pearl Street - Key West

Just listed, but not by me, 1217 Pearl Street which is located directly across the street from the famous Key West house "The Rose Tattoo" CLICK HERE and the neighboring former residence CLICK HERE of Tennessee Williams.

This is how the listing Realtor describes the cottage at 1217 Pearl Street:
"A Classic Cigar maker cottage sited on a beautiful private corner lot. This renovated 2 BD 2 BA home has an open kitchen and living room which exits to the exceptional out door living space with an expansive covered porch, pool area and gardens. There is a shed suitable for studio or additional guest bedroom and a carport."
The cottage is fairly good sized with 1274 sq ft of interior living space but the huge corner lot caught my attention. The lot is 4327 sq ft (44' X 98'). The house sits back from the street behind a white picket fence. There is a carport located on the right. The white picket fence ends at the rear of the house but the rear yard is protected by a large hedge to provide ultimate privacy. The rear yard has a large pool and deck area. This property is listed at $749,000 or $588 per sq
Duncan Street view
This house is located at the corner of Pearl and Duncan Streets - three blocks east of White and three blocks south of Bay View Park (on Truman Avenue). The MARC House CLICK HERE is located one block to the south. This is a must see every chance you can destination for gardeners. The Island Gym CLICK HERE is located three blocks to the west.Duncan Street is a five or six minute walk to the Atlantic Ocean. It's quicker on a bike or scooter, of course. Old Town is a ten minute bike ride, but you can walk to the restaurants and bars on upper Duval in about five to seven minutes. Another real estate agent referred to this area as "the highly desirable Arts District of Old Town Key West". I describe the location as quiet. After you have heard enough tourists and locals walking home at 3:00 AM telling each other how much they love each other or despise each other, you appreciate quiet neighborhoods. Believe me!

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.
