529 United Street - Old Town - Key West

The quaint little cottage at 529 United Street was just listed by Preferred Properties Coastal Realty, Inc. The listing agent implores the reader to "Think Outside the Box" when exploring the possible uses of this cottage. This is how the agent describes 529 United Street:

"Think outside the box on thischarming 2 bedroom, 2 bath cottage. Legally zoned to house one commercial space and one residential apartment, its all in place. Your location could not be better, just 1/2 block from Duval Street with plenty of street parking available. This cottage is a receiver site for a transient rental license offers great curb appeal and would make a delightful vacation rental property or single family residence. Past uses of this cottage include a Real Estate Office and a Mortgage Brokerage office."

The listing agent says the house has 900 sq ft of living space and sits on a 1563 (58' x 226') sq ft lot. The cottage is located near the corners of United and Simonton Streets at the southernmost end of the island. The place does not have room for a pool or even a hot tub. What it does have is an excellent location that is near the Atlantic Ocean. (South Beach is just one block away.) The quieter section of Duval is just one-half block to the west. Old favorites like La Te Da and the Banana Cafe are only a couple of minutes by foot. For a cup of con leche or an economical lunch, Ana's Cuban Cafe and the adjacent Southernmost Deli & Groceries is one block to the south.

529 United Street is offered at $389,000. I was inside the building a few years ago when it was used as a mortgage broker's office. The price and location make this listing interesting enough to take a look to see what uses it could be put to today. I agree, think outside the box on this listing.

That's a good price and a good location. I don't think this will be on the market very long at all.

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.
