905 Elizabeth Street - Old Town - Key West

2004 Historic Preservation Award Recipient

The listing Realtor of 905 Elizabeth Street describes this award winning home this way:
"This fully-renovated 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath house on a quiet street in Old Town surprises. Renovation won coveted 2004 Historic Preservation Award. House naturally flows from living and dining areas through French doors to private outdoor tropical setting with semi-enclosed rear porch, lush landscaping, pool and spa. Outdoor cooking and entertainment zone was featured in a 2009 national publication. Upstairs is the master suite with ensuite bath, vaulted ceilings and French doors leading to a wonderful balcony, plus additional bedrooms and bath. Downstairs bedroom with ensuite bath plus a powder room make this property ideal for guests and a large family. Classic historic house with modern additions, provides indoor outdoor living at its best!"
"French doors to private outdoor tropical setting with semi-enclosed rear porch"

Potential buyers that want a "big" house should look at this property. The listing agent shows the property as having 2091 sq ft of living space. If you live up north or the Midwest that may not seem very large. But 2091 sq ft of living space is a big deal in Old Town. The lot is also fairly large for Old Town: 25' X 131' or 3275 sq ft. I always tell people you have no idea what sits behind so many of the houses in Old Town. Consider the remark of the listing agent about this house as being a "surprise" as an invitation to see what is beyond the facade. And a pretty facade it is.

If you have done your "looking" at Key West homes, you already know that thoughtfully remodeled homes always try to create a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living areas. We come to Key West to live in the outdoors as much as possible. The weather in Key West beats the cold snowy messy gray days and nights in New Jersey. Look at the night time photo below of the of the rear living area overlooking the pool. Take a glance to the second floor as well. You will soon see that the outside is a big deal. Better yet, let's go take a look at this great property.

During the daytime you can let the outside in as shown in the photo below taken in the living room which opens onto the ground level deck.

The above photo was taken in the master bedroom which has a very private second floor balcony that overlooks the pool (shown below). Note the outdoor kitchen at the rear of the pool.

Cheeseburgers in Paradise forever!

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.
