Casa Marina Retreat - 1128 Johnson Street - Key West

If you are looking for a very sharp, clean and contemporary home in the Casa Marina Area of Key West that is priced at under one million dollars, I may have the home you are looking for. The 1130 sq ft home at 1128 Johnson Street is offered at $898,000. The listing agent describes this home this way:
"This charming 3 bedroom, 2 bath home is located on one of the most desirable streets in the Casa Marina. Nice and private this light filled home features terra cotta tile floors throughout, vaulted ceilings, custom cabinetry and multiple sets of French doors to the gardens. There is a large porch for relaxing or outdoor entertaining and a spacious garage. The property does not have a pool but there is plenty of room."
The listing agent is right about the location. Most of the houses on either side of Johnson Street as it stretches from White to Reynolds are mini-mansions. All but a few of the houses are either new or have been substantially renovated in the past few years. This property is the lowest priced home in the Casa Marina area that is not a short sale or theat does not need substantial renovation. The Casa Marina Resort sits at the far end of Johnson Street as it meets Reynolds. The Atlantic Ocean and they beaches are two blocks to the south as is public tennis courts and Astro Land for the kids. The Key West International Airport is a five to seven minute drive and Old Town is within easy biking distance.
The Casa Marina Area is the beach and homes shown immediately above

Higg's Beach is one of three public beaches in the Casa Marina Area

The house is hidden from street view by a tall privacy fence. The yard is lush with vegetation. The house sits midway between the front and rear property line on the 50' X 100' lot. A pool could be built either at the front or rear. The extra large existing garage could be remodeled into a guest cottage to create more living space. CLICK HERE to view the garage.

This property would be perfect for someone who loves clean lines and not a lot of fru-fru. And this home is ready to move in. There is no need to fix something. Everything looked in very good condition. The present owner is replacing the existing shingle roof with metal v-crimp.

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.
