1005 United Street #B - Casa Marina Area Townhome - Key West

Just listed by Preferred Properties (that's where I work but this is not my listing), 1005 United Street #B which the listing Realtor describes thus:
"Centrally located Townhome on the borderline of Old Town and Casa Marina. Exquisitely appointed 2 bedroom 2 bath with soaring ceilings. The Main level consists of an open floor plan complete with gourmet kitchen, built in library and French Doors leading to your own covered porch overlooking the pool. Upstairs are two large bedrooms with wrap around terraces and an outstanding slate tile bathroom with a new jacuzzi tub. Custom closets throughout. One off street parking space. Not a drive by."
This unit is big and really, really nice. It has lots of room to live in and all of the living spaces are nicely finished. This is a place you will be proud to call home-even if it is to be used only as a Key West getaway. This home is one of three that share a pool so it is called a townhome for purpose of that pool. The annual pool maintenance fee is just $500. Otherwise, the homeowner pays all of his or her building maintenance, insurance, and other costs of home ownership just as in a typical house.

This home has 1272 sq ft of living space divided between two floors. Downstairs you will find a dreamy kitchen with large open pass through to the dining area which flows into the living room. The ceiling height downstairs is 10'. The living room has two sets of French doors with overhead transoms. The living room opens to a decked pool, and there is a generous decked front court yard.Upstairs you will find two very large bedrooms. Both bedrooms open to a wrap around balcony leading to a covered porch overlooking the pool. The high ceilings, custom kitchen and designer details make this home a standout!

I suggest that potential buyers that are looking a townhomes and condos in Truman Annex priced in the $500,000 to $600,000 range take a look at this place for comparative purposes. This unit is probably going to be a lot larger and have more high-end features than you will find in most units in Truman Annex. And instead of sharing a pool with 19 or 67 or 176 other units, you will only have to share the pool with two neighbors. Oh, and parking is just outside and not half a block away. It is worth looking at and considering.

1005 United Street #B is offered at $589,000. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet and to view listing photos. Better yet, please call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642 to arrange a showing. I am a buyer's agent and a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Coastal Realty, Inc. in Key West.

Love the unit and I appreciate your posts and enjoy reading your blog. I think you got the square footage wrong on this one? Or is the MLS wrong?

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.
