The new Bank Owned duplex located at 6 Tern Lane on Geiger Key is a property that may appeal to a select group of buyers who want direct water access at an affordable price. The property is located east of Key West at Mile Marker 10. CLICK MAP. While I have not yet seen this particular property, there are two things I know about the area. First, the Naval Air Station located there. That means houses in the vicinity will always be subject to the noise of jets. Second, there is a desolate nude beach up there someplace. If either offends your sensibilities, don't read any further. (Please don't send me emails asking how to find the beach because I don't know.)

Below you will see some photos I found that show how this same property looked in 2006. Please note that the old photos are just that: old photos of what a house and grounds and pool looked like a four years ago. Do not assume that the place looks nearly the same now. The photos are offered only to entice potential buyers to take a personal look at the property to see the current condition.
A place that has this much to offer at such a low price (by Key West standards) deserves a look by a potential purchaser that wants space, seclusion, a pool, water access, and an affordable price.
