901 Thomas Street - Old Town - Key West

The slow summer sales season is upon us. Sellers are re-evaluating their pricing strategies and some are reacting by reducing the asking price of their properties. Such is the case for 901 Thomas Street in the Bahama Village area of Old Town Key West. It was originally listed on March 23 at the asking price of $524,900. The price was reduced on May 23 to $509,900. Yesterday the price was reduced to $499,000. I have shown this property a couple of times and I really like it.

The listing Realtor describes 901 Thomas Street this way:
"Immaculate renovated one level cottage in the heart of Old Town in a lushly landscaped compound of three single family homes. 3 bedrooms 1 1/2 baths, shared pool with waterfall, outdoor shower and off street parking make this tropical paradise the perfect setting for a second home getaway or investment."

The home is part of a three home compound created about a decade ago. CLICK HERE to see 306 Olivia Street and CLICK HERE to see 903 Thomas Street. Each of the houses and the ground underneath are owned in fee simple, just as most home owners own their homes up north. The three homes share a limited common area that includes a bricked courtyard, garden and pool. The "condo association" maintains the pool and courtyard, but otherwise the individual owners are responsible for the maintenance, insurance, and taxes for their respective properties.

The bar and grilling area are part of the limited common area

The 'third' bedroom is currently used as part of the living area

This 993 sq ft home is super clean and meticulously maintained. It is currently part of a monthly vacation rental program. The formal entry is at side near the front. The living area extends to the far rear where the third bedroom is currently used as part of the living area. There is a full bath adjacent to the left. There are two bedrooms at the front of the house that share a separate bath. The kitchen pictured immediately above is the heart of this lovely cottage home. Not visible is a rear door at the right rear that exits off to the pool. The exterior of this house is crisp and clean. It has a 'new' roof and gutters and the place looks like it has been freshly painted. 901 Thomas Street is now offered at $499,000.

901 Thomas Street is located two blocks from Duval Street and just one block west of the Ernest Hemingway House at 901 Whitehead Street. If you watch JEOPARDY, you would that Hemingway and Key West are frequent clues. One block to the north you will find two competing eateries, Blue Heaven and La Creperie which is a new addition to the corner of Thomas and Petronia. La Creperie is so cute and the food is good. Santiago's Bodega is one block further west on Petronia. Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park and the coolest beach in Key West is a five minute bike ride.

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.
