806 Shavers Lane - Old Town - Key West

The cute new listing at 806 Shavers Lane in Old Town Key West is one you won't soon forget. You walk in the front door and POW! the entire living space lights up with an explosion of color.

Shavers Lane is located one-half block west of Duval Street and just south of Petronia Street or north of Olivia Street. The lane is so small and discrete that most locals would need a map to find it. But if you know the area, you know this home is close to all the rah! rah! on Duval.

The listing Realtor describes 806 Shavers Lane this way:
"Built by one of Key West Premier builders, is this cheerful Conch style home in the very Center of Old Town. On the main level you have a very large living/dining/kitchen area which all opens to a very private pool and garden area with beautiful tropical landscaping. Also on the first level are several closets and 1/2 bath. On the second level there are two identical bedrooms with a shared bath and terraces. The master bedroom is more than ample with a walk-in closet and private bath and its' own terrace. There is room for two off street parking with a gate. Furniture available."
806 Shavers Lane is offered at $729,000 or $521 per sq ft for this three bedroom two and 1/2 bath home with a pool and bricked off-street parking in Old Town. The house was built in 1999. I took photos of the house yesterday and did not see any signs of deferred maintenance. CLICK HERE to see the photos I took.

The main floor is typical Key West comfortable living area with combined living, dining, and kitchen areas. Two sets of French doors open out onto the large deck, pool and rear garden. Upstairs there are two bedrooms in front that share a front balcony to overlook Shavers Lane. The master suite is at the rear and it has its own rear balcony to overlook the pool below. There is even a chair-elevator installed in the closet in case you have someone that has difficulty walking stairs.

Cute house but the orange colour is atrocious! The whole place would have to be repainted. Orange is SO last year (more like 2006). The colour is a turn off for me – I hope a buyer will find it … interesting to say the least.

Oh, and your link goes to 809 Sawyer Lane but it is easy to get to your pics for this property.

Thanks for catching the error.

Orange is probably an acquired taste.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

My photo
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.
