217 Truman Ave - Short Sale - KeyWest

217 Truman Avenue - Old Town - Key West
I normally write about the cute Conch cottages on the east side of Duval Street because that is the area where most buyers are looking. But today I want to suggest that potential buyers consider the cute Conch cottage located at 217 Truman Avenue as a potential property in Paradise.

The two story house is located three blocks west of Duval Street in the Bahama Village area. The nearest landmark you may recognize is the Bethel AME Church at the corner of Truman and Thomas Street (see photo below).

The listing Realtor describes the property this way:
"This quaint Key West home was renovated in 2006. Upgrades include new kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. French doors lead out to the private pool and waterfall. Spiral staircase takes you to the upstairs bedroom with balcony view of the pool area. This is a potential short sale transaction subject to lender approval."
I have shown this house a couple of times. I am surprised it has not sold. It is all redone and it looks very nice on the inside and outside. The main living area is downstairs at the rear of the house. The kitchen is located mid-way and a bedroom and bath are at the front. A spiral staircase leads to the second floor where there is another bedroom and bath. There is a Romeo & Juliet balcony at the rear that overlooks the pool and deck area below. The asking price on this place is now $369,000 (down from the original asking price of $519,000). CLICK HERE to check out the mls data sheet and to view listing photos of this cute Conch Cottage.

This house is definitely worth looking at. There is a lot of house at the asking price. Please call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642, to schedule a showing. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Coastal Realty, Inc. in Key West. Just think, you could be using that lovely pool this winter when your friends up north are shoveling snow.

I wish you had a photo of the staircase. Spiral staircases are such space savers. That's also what our outdoor spiral staircase has done to our backyard and garden. Plus, it's visually appealing, and it's fun to climb at. You just have to make sure that the staircase that you order is not too tight. You can have it custom-made if you want.

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.
