I have written before about this lovely home and do so again now that it has been recently re listed. The listing Realtor describes the property this way:
"Opportunity knocks.This totally remodeled home was awarded the Cert. of Excellence and a Silver Star for 2010. You will feel the attention to details from the moment you step inside. The entire house has Brazilian Cherry hardwood floors. A 2-storey addition was added and there is central HVAC throughout the house. All rooms a wired with cat5 cable for phones and computers. A salt-system, heated pool with a waterfall was installed, and a propane valve is available for your backyard grill. The kitchen has all stainless steel appliances.The house is located at the intersection of Elizabeth and Angela Street. This is the highest point on the Island and flood insurance is not required. Furniture may be purchased separately."The renovation included major structural improvements that will outlast all of us. Those improvements permitted the owners to edit the traditional approach of room configuration and ceiling heights in cigar maker homes. So what you think you know about a house that looks like this probably is not what you will actually see. The living room is at the rear and has a large vaulted ceiling and wonderful built-ins. The stairway to the second floor master bed and bath is dainty and ever-so-charming.
The home has a very elegant but not overstated feel once you enter. Every detail has been attended to but not in such a way as to make you feel uncomfortable. Some houses come across as being so "done" that you don't fell you can sit down. Not here. This home was made for sophisticated but also relaxed living.
Two bedrooms with a shared Jack and Jill bath are located at the front of the house. A guest bath is tucked in the hallway just off the living room with its vaulted two story ceiling. The kitchen with French doors that open onto the pool at the back occupies most the space at the rear but there is a darling staircase that takes you up to the second floor rear master bedroom and with en suite bath.
The asking price on 627 Elizabeth Street was just reduced to $935,000 or $684 per sq ft. This home has 1367 sq ft of totally remodeled space with superior finishes throughout. The wood floors, for example, are solid wood and not some el cheapo laminate. Everything is done just right. The second floor front window is even wired for placement of an electric "candle light" for the Christmas holidays. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls data sheet and to view listing photos.
