Key West Waterfront at Affordable Price

This Gulfview Drive townhome in Roosevelt Annex with a private pool and killer waterfront views is offered for sale at an incredibly affordable price of just $479,000. The best thing is it not a short sale and it is not bank owned. We don't need to deal with unscrupulous ninnies in far away places to make this deal happen.

The listing Realtor describe this treasure like this:
"Beautiful open water Gulf views in an immaculate gated community.Out door deck area w/private pool and fountains. Two upstairs balconies. Open the doors for wonderful cross breezes. Hurricane shutters for all windows. Carport with storage. Due to windstorm credits total annual insurance costs are $3,370."

Roosevelt Annex was the final Key West development done by the Singh Company that developed the immensely successful Truman Annex and equally popular Key West Golf Club development. It is the waterfront setting for each single family home or townhome that makes this property the crown jewel of the three Singh created in Key West. Yes, Key West is an island surrounded by water, but very few people who live on our little island can enjoy the soothing waterfront views available here.

Locals will remember all of the intense political battles that lead to the creation of this development. An outside might look at this property without any appreciation of the fury that went into the creation of something so serene today. Enough of history: more about today and tomorrow.

This Gulfview Drive townhome is located at the far end of the lazy drive that ends just about 100 feet east of this property. CLICK HERE for a Google Map aerial view. An elaborate electronic iron gate secures entrance to the property. Then a beautiful landscaped drive takes residents to their homes. Like any Singh property, the landscaping is lush. The covered off street parking is located across the street from this property.

This 1320 sq ft property has one bedroom(and bath) downstairs opposite the kitchen. The dining and living areas look out onto the water. Upstairs you will find a good sized second bedroom(with bath) in front and a large master bedroom with ensuite bath at the rear. Both bedrooms have private porches but it is the master suite that has that incredible waterfront view.

If you walk past the private pool and through the rear white picket fence you will find a path past the other equally lovely properties that share the remarkable waterfront view. Imagine walking your dog down the path each morning and night looking out to a sight only a few lucky souls will ever get to enjoy. The best part about this Key West property is that it can be yours for $479,000. So do not wait. It will be gone, and then you will regret taking too long to make up your mind.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

Key West, Florida, United States
I first read about Key West in a magazine called "After Dark" sometime in the mid 1970's. But it wasn't until March 1984 that I made my first visit to the island that would become my home. I had two weeks for a vacation and reserved a room at Colours Guesthouse (now Marrero's Guest House) for one week. I thought that if I didn't like Key West, I could always go back to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale for the rest of my trip. But after a couple of days in Key West, that was no longer a consideration. But when I wanted to extend my stay for the extra week I found there was no room at the inn. The guesthouse owner did find me a room at LaTeDa, the infamous guesthouse/restaurant. That's a story I'll write another day. But those two weeks in Key West gave me the realization that I had found Paradise. Key West has been my home since 1993 and my only regret is that it took me so long to get here. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties CRI. Let me help you find your new home or business in Paradise. Living in Paradise is not a slogan, it's a way of life.
