That's why I decided to discuss the United Street property. The asking price is just $324,000 or $300 per sq ft. The listing Realtor (at Preferred Properties-that's where I work) describes 1518 United Street this way:
"Three bedroom, two bath mid-town home located next to the electric substation which is the quietest neighbor you could ever hope to have! Ceramic tile floors, wood floor in Master bedroom. Lots of windows, new kitchen cabinetry and the living area has glass doors leading to the deck and large yard. Very private and completely fenced."
The 3 bedroom two bath house has 1080 sq ft of living space and sits on a large 5025 sq ft (50'x100') lot. The house is a big rectangle with main entrance on the side. The livingroom is at the rear house. The livingroom has nice new windows and French doors that look out to the rear deck and lush tropical foliage. I think there is adequate room for a pool at the rear and certainly on the side. There is a large covered carport attached to the right front of the house now. A new owner might ditch that carport in favor of a bricked driveway and white picket fence. The Keys Energy power station next door to the east is probably turn off to a lot of potential buyers who decide not to look. That's a mistake bargain hunters make. They want perfect for near-free. This is a good house at a good price with a big lot. A buyer with the zeal for a deal and a good imagination, a sense of design, and a few extra bucks could turn this bare bones short sale into a very nice home within the matter of a month or so. It is worth the look. CLICK HERE to checkout the mls data base and to view more listing photos.
This property is located in the Arts District east of White Street and south of Truman. Bayview Park is only a couple of blocks to the north. The Horace O'Bryabnt Middle School (across from Bayview Park) is in the process of being replaced by a brand new school within the next year or so. The MARC House is a couple of blocks to the west where you can find wonderful plants to fill your amazing new Key West garden. The one and only Key West Dairy Queen is a three block walk-you'll be surprised by how many famous Key West locals you will find there at night getting their licks in. The Atlantic Ocean is probably a seven to ten minute walk. Ride your bike; tote a beach chair; and tan for free.
