I have written three previous blogs about the architectural gem at 830 Simonton Street. The first time was when the bank had a "for sale by owner sign" on it (I submitted a great offer to the the local bank which countered back at full price); the second time was when the house was listed with a local real estate agent; and the third time when after sold (at a price less than what my client had offered).
The new owners have totally renovated the house at 830 Simonton Street, and it is now listed for sale at $749,000. The rejuvenated house has just about everything a second home owner in Key West could ask for: classic architectural design and exquisite updating; location near the top of Solares Hill: a new pool; off street parking; and an attractive asking price. The listing broker describes the property this way:
"Handsome first class renovation just completed! Meticulously detailed throughout, this 3BD/2.5BA Conch house has it all. Classic Dade County pine walls & floors, new kitchen with granite counters, fresh stainless steel appliances, new sparkling bathrooms, and even a new cocktail pool. Bricked & remote controlled gated off street parking, wonderful relaxing front porch & outdoor shower. It is absolutely perfect!"
The new owners modified the existing floor plan by moving a couple of walls and making the rooms more functional. They jazzed the place up with subtle features like the bright white trimmed bay windows in the dining room which show off the Dade County Pine walls. They included modern additions like the kitchen cabinets that blend the old with the new. Instead of three individual rooms with individual purposes, the new great room is a tasteful re-purposing of space which enhance the original architectural simplicity. There are two spacious bedrooms with en-suite baths plus a half-bath off the third bedroom which is used by this owner as a home gym. There is even 24 hour a day video surveillance so you can see your house from anywhere in the world. I was taken by the addition of the cocktail pool and the creation of an off street parking space. A white picket fence and lush landscaping complete this property. CLICK HERE to view a progressive photo history of 830 Simonton Street.
