Preferred Properties Coastal Realty, Inc. (that's where I work) is the listing broker for 1012 Southard Street in Old Town Key West.
We all know the Golden Rule of Real Estate: "Location, Location, Location". The home at 1012 Southard Street has a premier location. This particular block has several architecturally or historically significant homes. The house next door CLICK HERE for example was the feature home in an Architectural Digest issue a few years back. And just about everybody recognizes the Gingerbread Man House CLICK HERE house two doors to the east. The simple yet majestic home across the street CLICK HERE dominates the smaller somewhat smaller houses on the rest of the block. If you haven't been to Key West for a year or so you will see that the Haitian Art Gallery has been replaced by Jan George Interior Design but you will be glad to see that Cafe Sole is still where it belongs. Five Brothers Grocery and Sandwich Shop is a block to the west. And the rest of Key West is at your footsteps.
The listing Broker describes 1012 Southard Street this way:
"Super value in a most sought after location in historic old town! This charming property features a 3/2 home that could be a show place w/some updating/renovation plus a move in ready 1/1 guest cottage. Both houses open to the covered lanai and spacious, sunny decked pool area. The large lot features off-street parking. This is a great opportunity!"
The house at 1012 Southard Street was built circa 1899 according to the Monroe County Property Appraiser. The house has been added onto and updated over the years. There is a guest cottage at the rear that adds to the total square footage of the property. The 1932 sq ft home and cottage have a total of four bedrooms and three baths and sit on a large 50' x 100' lot. (That is a really big lot for Old Town!) There is ample off street parking.

1012 Southard Street is offered at $895,000 or $463 per sq ft. This house and its charming guest cottage are worth looking at. I hosted an open house here last November and many of those that looked said they had no idea how large the property was nor how big the pool is. You simply cannot appreciate what is behind a facade. You really must see the property to appreciate what it is and what it could become.
