The Phones are Ringing Off the Hook !

The Wall Street Journal ran a piece today on Queenly Restorations and chose a house in Key West for inclusion. CLICK HERE to see the house as shown in the Wall Street Journal.

The house the WSJ presented is a listing of Preferred Properties Coastal Realty, Inc. (that's where I work). I wrote at least two blogs about the particular house at 1307 Truman Avenue. CLICK HERE to view the mls listing info and to view more photos of the property. This house is a short sale and it is under contract at this time.

They (whoever they are) don't make houses like this anymore. It is a grand old dame, that is for sure. It has high ceilings, large rooms, a stately presence on Truman Avenue across from Bayview Park. The house was totally and tastefully renovated. The 4426 sq ft home was offered for sale at $1,750,000. It is presently under contract. The WSJ did not mention that in the nice little piece they did on queenly restorations. The phone has been ringing off the hook all day with people asking for more information on the property. While the queenly restoration at 1307 Truman may be gone (if the contract closes), there are still some really nice homes available at good prices.

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.
