626 Grinnell Street - Old Town - Key West

626 Grinnell Street Old Town Key West

Corner of Angela Street and Grinnell Street Key West

Just listed, but not by me, 626 Grinnell Street in Old Town Key West. This is one of those great eclectic and cheerful Key West houses that has so much too offer. This home has nearly 3000 sq ft of living space with a very friendly front porch for people watching, an old fashioned formal living room at the front of the house followed by a formal dining room at the rear. There is a newer kitchen with very tall wood cabinets and great natural light. There are high ceilings, crown molding, and lots of Victorian charm that you do not see in a lot of Key West "conch style" homes. Much of the original house has Dade County Pine. There is a huge second floor master suite with great outdoor views from rear porch. The master bath is very large and sunny. The house has three bedrooms in total. (The mater bed and bath area is a later addition and can be seen in the photo below.) The rear yard has a heated pool, mature trees, and privacy.

626 Grinnell Street is located one house in from the corner of Angela Street. (Angela is a one lane, one way street that runs from west to east on the north side of the Key West cemetery.) Conch Trains and Trolleys can't drive on either street so this is one of the quieter locations in Old Town. A small Key West Pocket Park (see photo) is located across the street. Five Brothers Coffee Shop is located at the end of the block on Southard Street. The Historic Seaport is three blocks further to the north and Duval Street is a five minute walk to the west. The White Street arts district is a five minute walk to the east and south.

This house shows very well. It does not have off street parking and that is a put off to a lot of potential buyers. But almost all of the houses in this block are single family residences, and there is not a lot of competition for on street parking. Remember the cemetery is only about 40 feet to the south so the area is very quiet at night and there are not a lot of cars at any time of the day.

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.
