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 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.
