Just listed, but not by me, 516 Catherine Street in Old Town Key West. This very attractive Conch House is located in the south part of Old Town. It's closest and most famous neighbor is LaTeDa which is located at the corner of Catherine and Duval Streets. It is the proximity to Duval Street and the fact that this house has been recently redone, that make this property a house worthy of your consideration. The listing Realtor describes 516 Catherine Street like this:
"Perfect Old Town gem just 1/2 block off Duval Street. This two bedroom, two bath sweetheart home has recently been completely renovated with a wonderful new pool, tile floors, new windows, Dade County pine walls and new central a/c. Very private backyard with native landscaping. It even has off street parking!"CLICK HERE to checkout the Key West mls listing datasheet and accompanying listing photos.
CLICK HERE to view the Key West city map that defines permissible transfer sites. This house is zone Hrcc-3 which is by definition a permissible receiver site. The fact that a property has the correct zoning and is located within a permissible zoning receiver location by itself does not mean the property can automatically receive a transient license, but it is better than the alternative of being categorically unable to receive transient license. I always tell a perspective buyer that wants to buy a house that does not have a transient license to verify with his or her attorney that the property he or she wants to purchase can be a receiver site. That being said, 516 Catherine Street would be a terrific location for a transient licensed house because it has the three criteria that make transient licensed houses so popular (1) pool, (2) parking, (3) stellar location near Duval Street. The asking price of $594,900 makes this property really attractive.
While 516 Catherine Street has off street parking but it is the ability to walk to any number of daytime or night time locations that makes this house such an excellent location.
