The new listing at 1908 Staples Avenue in the Mid Town area of Key West is one of only a few homes constructed of Indian Block. Several other similarly built homes sit on the same block while a couple of very large homes (including the mansion built by George Reynolds at 901 Flagler Avenue). This house was built in 1910 (a hundred years ago).
The listing Realtor describes this 1080 two bedroom one bath home very simply:
"BANK-OWNED. A classic Shot-gun design with parking in front and rear. Ready for your personal touch." This house is priced to sell at $243,540 or $226 per sq ft.

The Monroe County building records show that this house has new windows, storm shutters, and air conditioning that were installed in 2007 as part of the airport noise abatement program valued at $23,000. CLICK HERE to view.
There is an alley behind all of the houses on this block. A chain link fence with gate encloses the back yard. I guess you could use it for parking, but it looks large enough for a pool. You be the judge. CLICK HERE.
Houses in this price range tend to sell fairly quickly. If you would like to see this house, please call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Coastal Realty, Inc. in Key West, Florida.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

- 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.
