The listing agent describes this wonderful home this way:
"Located in the Casa Marina framed by bamboo rolling gates sits a beautiful hidden entrance revealing a traditional Key West large home on one level with three bedrooms, three bathrooms in the main home and a separate guest cottage. As you enter you are greeted by an unusually large open living/dining area with wood flooring and French doors leading to the massive backyard, covered lanai and free form pool. To the right is the cottage which is complete with a custom kitchen, vaulted ceilings, terra cotta tile floor. Off Street parking for at least 3 cars. Close to the beach and downtown Key West."1424 Whalton Street has the features second home buyers look for in a larger Key West home: size, convenient location, comfort & charm, room for guests, and ready to move into with no work needed. While much of Old Town has big tall two story houses or small cigar makers cottages on small lots, the Casa Marina Area is noted for its Mid Century Modern architecture with a predominance of modified homes on larger lots protected by privacy fences. In this area you will find fewer tourists, fewer houses on larger lots, more full time homeowners, and mostly broad streets without a lot of traffic. You won't see Conch Trains or Trolleys going up and down the streets. But you will see people walking their dogs with plastic bags and gloves on hand. You can ride your bike down streets lined with giant palms and trees with flowers that fall to the ground like snow. The Casa Marina Area is a genuine Key West neighborhood.
The house at 1424 Whalton Street was built in 1953 and has been updated several times. It is currently configured with three bedrooms and two baths in the main house which has a large great area and kitchen plus a self-contained guest cottage with so much cuteness that your guests will never go back home. The lanai offers protection from the Key West sun but the pool has plenty of sun. CLICK HERE to checkout the Key West mls database and to view listing photos of this great property.
