Bring Your Toothbrush - The Truman Annex - Key West

Adorable and Comfortable are words that describe the new listing at 418 Porter Lane in Porter Court, a community of just 19 townhomes in The Truman Annex area of Old Town Key West. The listing Realtor describes this property this way:
"Looking for the perfect carefree retreat...look no further! This beautifully decorated 2 Bedroom/2.5 Bath condo is located in the gated community of Truman Annex. Nicely sited for privacy, yet just steps away from the pool and 2 blocks from Duval Street. The unit is being sold turn-key and comes with a transient license. A fabulous opportunity to own a second home or a vacation rental property. This pristine unit is in move-in condition. Everything stays in the unit except for a Debra Yates painting and 3 David Lee prints...just pack your suitcase!"
This property is a listing of Preferred Properties. We toured the unit last week and it is really sweet. This unit has a valuable Transient License, but the unit has never been rented as such. So you will not see lots of wear and tear. Instead, you will find a getaway place that is almost pristine and it is just adorable. The large and open first floor living area has French doors that open onto an extra large and very private rear deck. Those two areas seemingly merge into one very large Key Westy living space. Upstairs both bedrooms have private decks as well. The master suite has a vaulted ceiling and the deck there overlooks the pool below. 418 Porter Lane is offered at $699,000.

This unit is located at the far end of the cul de sac Porter Court. Off Street parking is right outside the door just beyond the white picket fence. The neighbors across the street are the large private homes of Truman Annex located on Front Street, and most of those homes are valued at $2 million price range and higher. I mention that because location matters, and Porter Court has a great location. CLICK HERE to view photos I took of this property.

If you are looking for a nice and squeaky clean place that is move-in ready, this may be the place. If you are looking a special place that you would like to occasionally rent to help make the mortgage payment, this may be the place. You won't know until you take a look. Please call me, Gary Thomas, 305.76.2642. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Coastal Realty, Inc. in Key West, Florida. Our office is the Exclusive Lower Florida Keys affiliate of Christie's Great Estates. Just bring your toothbrush!

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.
