The listing Realtor describes 605 Free School Lane in Old Town Key West this way:
"Absolutely beautiful renovation from top to bottom: This transient licensed home situated at the end of a quiet dead end lane in the heart of the historic district is currently being used as a vacation rental.

Upstairs are two enormous master suites with French doors to a partially canopied balcony overlooking the landscaped yard and pool.

Landscaping would have to be reconfigured to accommodate small vehicle."
The property is located in the best location in Old Town. The house is hidden away near the very end of a quiet little lane that ends at Nancy's Secret Garden. Click GOOGLE MAP to see an aerial view of the location. Actually look at the map and see how far removed this house is from day to day life.
The house was built new in 1984 and has recently been renovated. It is used a legal vacation rental, and it has the requisite Transient Rental License which permits daily rentals (but this property is only rented on a weekly or longer basis). The house is almost always rented. The good new is the place is a solid money maker. The bad news is the more often you use it yourself, the less income you will get.
When you enter the gate from Free School Lane you first see a lush yard with free form heated pool and then you see the beautiful 2 story home with an inviting large covered front porch. The first level features a great room, large galley style kitchen, bar area, full bath, bedroom and tile floors. There are French doors on either side of the great room that allows pool and tropical garden views. Upstairs are two enormous bedrooms with private baths, vaulted ceilings and wood floors. All rooms throughout the home have French doors opening to the outdoors. You won't believe the views from the second floor. They will make your friends green with envy.
For further reference this property is located very near the Hotel Marquesa. Duval Street is just one block to the west. Sarabeth's Restaurant is only a half block to the south. The Tropic Cinema, Red Barn Theatre and The Waterfront Playhouse are within a five minute walk. The Historic Key West Seaport is also located within easy walking distance.
