900 White Street - Old Town - Key West

It is getting harder and harder to find houses and condos in Old Town priced under $400,000 that actually look really nice and that have more living space than a large shoe.

The condo at 900 White Street (Unit #2) has 1042 sq ft of living space plus 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The original craftsman style home was made into condos a few years back and this nice looking unit is now available at $325,000 or $312 per sq ft. This is how the listing agent describes this Key West property:
"Striking three bedroom, two bath condo is one of only three units in an authentic Craftsman Bungalow. Spacious living/dining room, large cook's kitchen, gleaming wooden floors and high ceilings. Private yard, hot tub and sitting porch. High end renovation with many special touches. Entrance on Olivia Street."

I must confess I have not been inside but I think this one is definitely worth taking a look at. CLICK HERE to review the mls listing data sheet and to checkout the listing photos. If you are looking for a nice place that appears to have been thoughtfully renovated and you do not require a pool, let's go take a look together.

Yes White Street can be busy at times, especially around rush hour. (That's from 4:45 to 5:15.) After then traffic is intermittent and decreases as the night grows older. Traffic on the weekends is very moderate. I think a place like this is worth looking at several different times so you can judge for yourself whether the traffic would cause you not to want to consider it.

Consider the location for another reason: proximity. 900 White Street is located on the corner of White and Olivia. One block to the south you can get the best fried chicken in Key West at Dion's. Two blocks to the south you can get your morning con leche at Sandy's Cafe, or walk across the street to Faustos to do some quick shopping. Three blocks to the south is Island Gym where you might run into me. Of course you could walk just one block north and hit up a couple of galleries, take a yoga or spinning class, or maybe indulge in some Cuban food at Jose's Cantina. A couple blocks further and you could dine at Cafe Sole, but bring a big appetite cause they have big forks and spoons. 900 White is perhaps a 10 minute walk to some of the nightlife on Duval. Check for Adam's apples!

I saw this property over the weekend. It is very well done. The kitchen is beautiful, the floors are fabulous. It just does not have parking or any outdoor space other than the hot tub. That being said, it will make a very nice home, or second home, for someone at a fairly reasonable price.

Gary's right about the parking--it's always easy in that area of White Street. I go to the evening events at The Studios of Key West, just up the street at White and Southard and always find parking.

Great neighborhood.

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.
