611 Simonton Street - Old Town - Key West

611 Simonton Street Old Town Key West October 2010

Just listed, but not by me, 611 Simonton Street in Old Town. You may recognize this great old house as it is located adjacent to the Conch Republic Embassy on Embassy Row in Key West. Priced at $699,000.

The Conch Republic Limo is parked next door to 611 Simonton Street

The listing Realtor describes this property this way:
"This is a wonderful spacious home which has a great covered outdoor entertainment area with a Fire-place. The Master-bedroom with balcony and master-bath is located upstairs. Downstairs is featuring a large open Living-area, two Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, separate Dining-room and Utility-room."

The original house was built in 1953 and was enlarged sometime later both downstairs and by adding the second prominent second story. The house now measures 2080 sq ft. The lot is an oddly shaped 3908 sq ft that wraps around the rear of the adjacent commercial two story building next door. This property is zoned HNC-1 which is short for Historic Neighborhood Commercial-1. Uses for this zoning include include residential (including single family, duplex, and multi-family) and limited commercial including professional offices, banking and financial services, personal service shops, specialty shops, limited retail, transient accommodations and guest cottages. Rather than rely on what I write, do your own investigation to determine suitability for the use you intend. CLICK HERE to read the City of Key West zoning ordinances and consult with your own attorney. Just because some use may be permissible does not mean you will necessarily be able to do what you want.

I have not been inside this property. I could not locate any recent listing for this property either. The Google aerial photo CLICK HERE suggests there may be room for a pool in the rear if the pool would not interfere with the root system of the neighboring trees. You never what to expect in a place like this. There is always something to learn and often something to capitalize upon.

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.
