The listing Realtor describes the wood frame Conch house at 1410 Angela Street this way:
"Located in the popular Meadows neighborhood in Old Town Key West this spacious and well maintained home features 4 bedrooms, two bathrooms, private room for an office inside master bedroom, fenced back yard with inground pool and covered deck, detached utility room with laundry. French doors in master bedroom open to the covered deck and pool. Completely fenced with off street parking and plenty of space to park on the street. The original house is a 2/1 Conch Cottage upgraded in 1998 with a 2/1 addition that is setup as a lockout,great for a mother-in-law unit or guest area, two-zone central a/c and pool. Set back from the street on a large lot landscaped with tropical trees and shrubs. Owner financing possible."
This house is a Conch style (simple one storey wood frame construction) which was expanded with a large 'mother in law' addition. The mls listing shows the property as having four bedrooms which would be correct if the living room in the mother in law unit were used as a bedroom. An interior doorway still separates (or could reconnect) the main living area from the mother in law unit. The interior of the original house is more typical of homes up north in mid-America than potential second home buyers for Key West cottages expect. The mother in law unit has vaulted ceiling that adds space and volume but also takes away a bit of privacy.
The the three big selling features of this property are the size of the home, the lovely yard, and the beautiful pool. I think a new owner might want to remove the current stucco exterior and replace it with a more correct wood siding. There aren't many houses in the Old Town or Meadows area with four bedrooms, especially nice homes with a pool and off street parking that are priced as affordably as this one. A new owner might redo the rear deck and pool by converting an existing shed into a pool bar. It's not that the place as it exists is 'wrong'. It just isn't as good as it could be.
