Preferred Properties Coastal Realty, Inc. just listed the two home compound at 1120 Packer Street with an incredible amount of real Key Westie living space. The listing Realtor describes this property thus:
"This is a rare four bedroom, three bath house all on one level on an extra large lot(6473 sq ft.). The owners renovated the historic cottage and added an impressive and compatible addition. The addition includes a great room, dining room, beautifully appointed kitchen and a luxurious master suite, all of which have vaulted ceilings and french doors opening to porches overlooking the heated swimming pool. There is a real laundry room and parking for several cars."This place is really fun to show. There are so many different areas outside where you can go cogitate or whatever you do by your lonesome. Those areas include two front porches, the front alcove off the kitchen, the rear deck off the living room, the deck off the master suite, the ruins from the old bakery (absolutely a killer feature-nothing like it anyplace else in Key West), and assorted benches placed in various areas around the grounds.
The two cottages are interconnected so you do not have to leave air conditioned space to go from one part of the house to another. Some compound type homes sometimes require the occupant to move from house to house in the pouring rain or beating sun. Not here.
Each part of this property has been smartly renovated and, like the outside, there are numerous interior nooks and crannies where one can go curl up to read a good book or take a nap. The master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling that gives the already spacious room an even greater feeling of importance. A set of French doors open onto the private rear deck that provides instant access to the cozy pool. The master bath has a vaulted ceiling as well. This room has a shower, separate bath, a large vanity and storage space that singles it out from the ordinary.
The living, dining, and kitchen areas are very informal but the interiors are not. There is a simple graciousness of about this place. Everywhere you look there is something to see but you are not overwhelmed by things. Instead you are awed by the simplicity of each component part.
