I played golf once - with my dad and a few of the men he worked with. I was twelve or thirteen and felt totally inept and never tried it again. But that never stopped me from loving the beauty of the green links, the blue skies, and wonderful weather I associate with the game. Today I am writing about two nearly identical homes in The Sanctuary at the Key West Golf Course (square feet, bedrooms and baths) that are located just a few houses apart but that have differing views, lot layout, and asking prices.
Take a moment and consider the views from two comparable homes located in the Sanctuary at the Key West Golf Club. The two photos above were taken at 269 Golf Club Drive looking from the livingroom out toward the course and then from the deck towards the course. A small pond and mangroves protect this property from golf carts, errant balls, and talkative golfers. The scene from the livingroom and the deck is bucolic-almost as if the golf course was an after thought.
The listing Realtor describes 269 Golf Club Drive this way:
"Premiere property located in the Sanctuary at The Key West Golf Club. Simply the BEST location available and priced to sell, today! This wonderful home has it all, expansive decks, pool, space, privacy and ONLY one owner, who has lovingly maintained the property."CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls database and to view more photos on 269 Golf Club which is priced at $549,000.
It's amazing the different feeling you get when you walk in the front door of 283 Golf Course and view the fairway through the French doors. It is stunning. There's no mistaking that view for anything other than a golf course. The homes on the opposite side of the course remind you that you are in Key West and not some other locale as the Key West architecture is par for this course.
283 Golf Club Drive is offered at $649,000. The listing Realtor describes this property thus:
"Exciting opportunity to live in Exclusive Sanctuary @ KW Golf Club! Separate gated single-family residence enclave w/in gated community. Superb location near Sanctuary gates, no need to drive thru entire loop! Magnificent vista, overlooks 16th fairway/green, peaceful lake, hammock preserve w/egrets nesting @ sunset. Lush landscaping to enjoy from delightful double-decker screened verandas directly off liv. rm. & master suite upstairs. Upgrades abound, Italian tile throughout, Berber carpet on steps, Corian countertops, Radiant range, natural wooden blinds, 2-car driveway, private covered carport, inground jacuzzi w/island tin roof & wooden latticed privacy walls. Meticulously maintained home w/only two separate loving snowbird owners!"I included a view from the second floor veranda at 283 Golf Club Drive (see photo below). Both properties have them. It is just the views that are different. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls database and to view more photos of 283 Golf Club Drive.
There are many similarities and several differences between these two properties. If you are looking for a recently built single family home in Key West, you owe it to yourself to take a look at these two homes (any maybe a couple of others) located at the golf course. They make a good price and feature comparison to other homes in the Key West metroplex.
I sold a combined total of 13 townhomes and single family homes at the Key West Golf Course last year. I'm no 'pro' on golf course properties, but I do think there are still some bargains there.
