1208 Florida Street - Bank Owned - Key West

1208 Florida Street - Key West
The listing Realtor describes the newly listed Bank Owned property at 1208 Florida Street in Key West this way:
"Bank Owned property. Great Mid Town location close to the beach, Faustos on White Street, several coffee shops, restaurants, art galleries and retail establishments. 3Br/2Bth, two story home with off street parking for two cars. Just about everything is within bicycling distance from this unit. First floor has kitchen dining room, living room and bathroom. Second floor has three bedrooms, landing and bathroom. Second Floor balcony accessible from 2 bedrooms. Could use a facelift but is clean and livable."
I showed the property this past weekend. It was a rainy day (same day as the east coast was being brutalized by Hurricane Irene). My buyers decided they needed more room than this property provides. The house has 948 sq ft of living space divided between two levels. The downstairs consists two living areas plus the kitchen and a full bathroom. Upstairs you will find two good sized bedrooms both of which have individual access to the second floor balcony. There is a small third bedroom and a very small second floor bath. That bath needs a lot of work in my opinion. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet on 1208 Florida Street.

I took more photos which you can see if you CLICK HERE. This Bank Owned property is listed at $289,000 or $304 per sq ft. The second floor ceilings are low. The bathroom on that floor needs redone. Some of the interior space could be reconfigured to make the space more usable. The backyard has huge rear stairway that could be removed along with a nasty old tree. The removal of both could create a nice backyard space. This is a project house for someone with imagination and carpentry skills.

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.
