8 Nassau Lane - Old Town - Key West - No Need to Look Further

A few years ago I had floor duty and some walk-in customers came in and wanted to look at small homes in Old Town. I showed them several houses on the computer and said there was a new listing on Nassau Lane. I called the listing agent and we drove over to see it. Nassau Lane is located just off Fleming Street between Grinnell and and Frances Streets. It is a one block long lane that dead ends perhaps 150 feet from Fleming. I parked on Fleming and we walked down the lane. As we approached the house the lady said "Gary, I love it. I want to buy it!" I said you haven't even seen the inside. She re-iterated she wanted to buy it. We had a signed contract (both sides) in about two hours time. We became friends and see each other occasionally for dinner. Last year I was walking another couple down that same lane when the couple that bought the house came outside. She came up and gave me a big hug and told my buyers that they love their house and Nassau Lane. I made a remark about only looking at one house and she said the house and the lane are what she had dreamed of. There was no reason to look further.

Just listed, but again not by me, 8 Nassau Lane. This beautiful 2083 sq ft home was just built in 2006. This is new construction and not a remodel. The listing Realtor describes 8 Nassau Lane this way:
"Hidden away on a quiet lane in Old Town is this recently built home in the style of Key West Conch architecture. The front porch features the classic 3 bays and opens into a wide gallery entry with an open custom designed staircase with cable railing. At the rear of the home is an expansive great room with a beamed 22 foot ceiling, maple floors, custom cabinetry and a well designed kitchen. This spectacular room opens to the landscaped yard with pool and spa. The master suite is on the main level while two guest suites occupy the second. Both levels are clean, crisp and light-filled. This contemporary take on a classic has been designed for low maintenance, carefree living with GE Smart Sense wiring and wind resistant doors and windows."
There is nothing for me to say except the price: $1,995,000 or $958 per sq ft. CLICK HERE to see more detailed info on this home and view some great photos of the interior and pool. And CLICK HERE to see an aerial perspective of 8 Nassau Lane.

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.
