Key West Beach Club - Ocean Front Unit

One of Two Pools at Key West Beach Club

Key West Beach Club at Sunrise

This is one of those Just Listed but not by me blogs. The newly listed property is Unit # 107 at Key West Beach Club Condominiums located at 1500 Atlantic Avenue in Key West. For the uninitiated the Beach Club Condominiums are unlike any other condo development in Key West. The condos are located right at the beach front. If you had legs long enough, you could dangle them over the edge of the balcony and wiggle your toes int the the sand. The coral reefs protect the Keys from roaring waves. Instead of hearing roaring tides crash ashore you will only hear the gentle lapping of the waves. Wouldn't that be a nice sound to put you to sleep by every night.

Unit #107 is located on the first level of the western building at Beach Club. The listing agent shows that this unit has 1550 sq ft of living space including two bedrooms, two baths, a remodeled kitchen, living room and dining area. The living room and master bedroom each have dead-on killer views of the Atlantic. The master bedroom with en-suite bath is extra large and extra nice.

This is how the listing Realtor describes this property:
"Fabulous oceanfront view and location in one of Key West's finest gated communities; The Key West Beach Club. This beautiful, sunny 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with full length balcony comes fully furnished including a kitchen stocked with everything needed to cook and serve fine meals. Turnkey for vacation rentals or for the pleasure of the new owner. Extra large jacuzzi tub in master bath, large walk-in closet, bonus area at entry, renovated and upgraded kitchen including granite countertops. The parking space is conveniently located next to elevator and close to unit. Two oceanfront swimming pools, gym, covered entertainment areas with grill, tennis court and downstairs storage unit. This condo is earning vacational rental income."
The Beach Club was built to be and became the premiere condominium development in Key West. Most of the original owners that purchased when the buildings were built in 1987 still own their units. There has been little unit turnover during the past twenty odd years unlike most other condominium developments in Key West. That is important to consider because it means the condo association has a solid financial foundation. The buildings and grounds are professionally managed and very well maintained. (Some places in Key West have hit the skids. The buildings and the grounds in some developments are showing the signs of financial strain.)

It used to be that there was never a unit for sale at the Beach Club. There just has not been a big turn-0ver of units like there are at other developments. So when a new unit goes on the market it is cause for attention. Unit #107 is offered at $1,250,000. Unit # 107 has been rented as a vacation rental. The unit is professionally managed and the monthly rental rate charged is $6,000 to $9,000 depending upon date. CLICK HERE to see the listing info on this unit and to view some really great photos.

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.
