The Campbell Courtyard Condominiums have one of the best locations in Old Town. They are close enough to Duval Street and the Historic Key West Seaport that you can be in either place in five minutes or less. But they are far enough away that you do not hear the frenzy on Duval. Many of the neighboring properties are among the highest priced homes in Old Town. And there are still some of the undone houses that make Old Town so appealing. The area is chic but not too chic. CLICK HERE to view a Google aerial view of the location.
The condos were "developed" or assembled in the late 1990s from a group of unrelated buildings into the compound with a shared location, identity, and an incredibly inviting pool. The nine units were sold off and there has not been a large turnover of ownership since then. The main building shown above was built in the 1920s and the eyebrow cottage (just below) was built in the 1890s. All buildings were totally renovated during the condo conversion.
The developer that did the condo conversion retained a unit and that unit was just listed, but not by me, at the asking price of $529,000 and who describes the unit like this:
"Enjoy all Key West has to offer when you live at Campbell Courtyard in Old Town. This contemporary two story condominium offers two bedrooms and two bathrooms with a balcony overlooking the neighborhood. The common areas are beautifully maintained lush gardens surrounding the pool. Walk to galleries, shops, clubs, and more from this central location. Furnishings are negotiable so you can move right in!"
Look up to the very top photo and you will notice a wide balcony on second floor. That is the main level of this unit. The living room is on the left (west side) and the kitchen is on the right (east side). The doors open to the balcony where you can sip your morning coffee or early evening martini and watch the people on parade forever. But every Friday during the last week of October you will have the ringside seat to watch the official Fantasy Fest "People's Parade". There is a spiral staircase that leads to the third floor where there are two good sized bedrooms and two baths.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

- 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.
