1327 White Street - Bank Owned - Key West

The Bank Owned property at 1327 White Street just go a lot more affordable: the asking price has been reduced to $995,500. This is a very large house (2414 sq ft) on a pretty big lot (4678 sq ft) by Key West standards.

1327 White Street is a listing of Preferred Properties (that's where I work, but this is not my listing). The listing broker describes the property this way:
"This beautiful conch style home offers wonderful architectural features such as gracious front porch, polished hardwood floors, exposed wood walls and ceilings, multiple sets of tall doors and windows and custom crown moldings. This home has a den plus four bedrooms and four baths including a third story bedroom with it's own 350 sq. ft. terrace offering treetop views of the island. The kitchen has solid wood cabinetry and a separate laundry room. The grounds feature gated off street parking and a beautiful pool and spa surrounded by lush foliage and adjoining pool house. This charming home offers a lot of sq. footage."
The house is large when viewed from the street. When you open the front door the sense of "family" immediately enters your mind. This is a family home for sure. The interior rooms while large are not cavernous. The interiors have Dade County Pine walls and ceilings and the darkly finished real hardwood floors with bright white trim and crown moldings everywhere. A set of new French doors open onto the large rear deck complete with pool and spa. (A new owner might want to turn that space into a pool bar.) There are three large bedrooms on the second floor. The third floor is configured as a very open bedroom complete with private bath and doors that open to a very large roof top deck where you can scan much of the Casa Marina area.

1327 White Street is located at the beginning of the Casa Marina area of Key West, that's where I live. The old Key West High School is a couple of blocks to the north. The new high school is out of Flagler Avenue, within walking distance if you have teens that actually walk. The house is about a five minute walk to Rest Beach and Higg's Beach. A couple of blocks to the north you will find Mo's Restaurant, Sandy's Cafe, and Fausto's Food Palace. Bayview Park is a couple of blocks to the east - that's where the city and various charities hold festivals throughout the year. When you live in a neighborhood like the Casa Marina area, you experience a real sense of community that you do not witness as a casual tourist. The longer you live here, the more you appreciate having taken the step to move here.

Salute on the Beach is located at Higg's Beach - great food, affordably priced and what a view!

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.
