617 Fleming Street #4 - Old Town - Key West

617 Fleming Street - Old Town - Key West 2010

617 Fleming Street - Old Town - Key West circa 1965

The Campbell Courtyard Condominiums have one of the best locations in Old Town. They are close enough to Duval Street and the Historic Key West Seaport that you can be in either place in five minutes or less. But they are far enough away that you do not hear the frenzy on Duval. Many of the neighboring properties are among the highest priced homes in Old Town. There are still some untouched houses that make Old Town so appealing. The area is chic but not too chic. CLICK HERE to view a Google aerial view of the location.

The Campbell Courtyard Condos were "developed" or assembled from a group of unrelated buildings into the compound with a shared location, identity, and an incredibly inviting pool in the late 1990s . The nine units quickly sold and there has not been a large turnover of ownership since then. The main building shown above was built in the 1920s and the eyebrow cottage (just below) was built in the 1890s. All buildings were totally renovated during the condo conversion.

The Eyebrow Cottage and Pool at Campbell Courtyard

Campbell Courtyard Condominium #4 was just listed, but not by me, at the asking price of $499,000. This two bedroom and two bath unit has 1000 sq ft of interior living space plus front balcony. The listing broker describes this unique Old Town property this way:
" Beautiful Old Town Campbell Courtyard condominium. Contemporary two bedroom and two bath unit with a balcony overlooking Old Town. Small private compound with only nine units. Enjoy the shared pool with mature and lush landscaped grounds."
Kinda 'inviting' isn't it?

Look at the above photo and notice the second floor balcony. That is the main level of this unit. The living room is on the left (west side) and the kitchen is on the right (east side). There is a spiral staircase that leads to the third floor where there are two good sized bedrooms and two baths. The doors open onto the balcony where you can sip your morning coffee or early evening martini and watch the people on parade forever. But every Friday during the last week of October, you will have the ringside seat to watch the official Fantasy Fest "People's Parade".


This place, Dear Reader, is worth looking at if you are looking for a very well located second home in a great Key West location. Please call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642, to schedule your own private showing. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Coastal Realty, Inc. in Key West.

I've passed this many times and have always been intrigued by that balcony.

Stop by on Friday around 5:30 when the People's Parade goes down Duval. Prime viewing. Then you will get an appreciation of the location and why I like this property.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

My photo
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.
