You can't find a slower lane in Old Town Key West than Fletcher Lane. The lane is only one block long, and it is located between Grinnell and Margaret Street just off Eaton Street. The lane is populated by only a few houses. Most people have never heard of it because few houses located there ever get offered for sale. But the new listing at 5 Fletcher Lane (not my listing) is your opportunity to purchase a really special property. The listing Realtor describes the property this way:
"Luxurious & Elegant Historic Home on one of the most desirable lanes in Old Town Key West. Situated at the end of a quiet lane on a lush tropical lot, this 4 bedroom home underwent extensive renovation and additions in 2007. High ceilings, hardwood floors, bright & airy kitchen with open floor plan overlooking tropical yard and inviting pool. Master suite on first floor with vaulted ceilings, 2 large guest bedrooms plus a wonderful guest cottage provide comfort and privacy for you and your guests.

The two houses pictured are connected to create one very large living space of 2352 sq ft.

The result is an island oasis within the island oasis of Key West.
The Historic Key West Seaport is two blocks to the north. There you will find Harpoon Harry's, my just about favorite spot for breakfast or a good old fashioned real cheeseburger. The Schooner Warf Bar is right on the waterfront as are Turtle Kraals and the Half Shell Raw Bar. Coles Peace Bakery (where you can get some great artisan bread and incredible sandwiches) is a two block walk east of Fletchers Lane. Duval Street is five minutes to the west. Everything a man (or woman) could want in life all located within a five minute walk from the house.
