Classic Eyebrow Home - 1108 Southard Street - Key West

1108 Southard Street - Old Town - Key West - November 2010

Recently listed, but not by me, this classic Eyebrow Home at 1108 Southard Street in Old Town Key West. The listing Realtor describes the property like this:
"A beautiful classic eyebrow style home in one of the best locations in the Old Town Historic District of Key West - This renovated home features a main level open floor plan with living room, a wonderful large kitchen/dining room with vaulted ceiling, a separate laundry room, guest or master bedroom and full bath. Multiple sets of French doors open to a large loggia and decked private rear yard with heated pool. Upstairs is a master bedroom with French doors to a private porch with roof top views, a large bath with separate tub and shower, walk-in closet and a small guest bedroom or study. The home has beautiful architectural detailing throughout including wood floors on both levels and Dade County Pine walls. Off-street parking."

This home has 1820 sq ft of living space and sits on a good sized lot (56' x 67' or 3752 st ft) on one of the very best blocks in Old Town. That may seem redundant as the listing agent said about the same as to location. But location is often critical to long term value in Key West, and this location is a winner. A few doors to the west of this house is the feature home that appeared in Architectural Digest about 6 years ago CLICK HERE. The Ginger Breadman House is located in the same block CLICK HERE. Across the street is the very large single family property that sold in 2006 for $5.5 million CLICK HERE The home to the rear spans the entire length of Ashe Street to Frances Street, and it is a doozy.

1108 Southard Street as it appeared in 1965

1108 Southard Street was built in 1885. I found one of those older photographs of this house that was taken in 1965 (above). Note how similar the exterior looks today, nearly half a century later. The simple elegance has not been altered, and that is what makes buying a house like this in great location such a good, long term investment. This home is offered at $1,150,000.

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.
