The "Good" Samaritan - 626 Samaritan Lane - Bank Owned - Key West

626 Samaritan Lane - Bank Owned - Key West

Just listed, but not by me, 626 Samaritan Lane in Key West. This BANK OWNED property ought to sell in a flash because it is priced at just $119,000 or $222 per sq ft. The listing Realtor describes the property thus:
"This home is a hallow shell, all of the plumbing and electrical has been removed. There are no interior walls, ceiling, floors, bedrooms, bath or kitchen. This will give you the opportunity to design your own layout and finish this home with your own personal touches. Home is located in a very private drive in down town Key West and is 1/2 block away from the very famous Duval Street."
The house is located on Samaritan Lane which is accessed off Southard Street just behind the rear of Mangoes Restaurant. The lane makes a right hand turn and ends up on Whitehead Street. Most readers probably never heard of the lane and more never walked down it. The house and lot are further removed from view as they sit behind another property which fronts on Samaritan Lane.

The property is landlocked but has access via deeded walkway. The neighbor to the south and east is Bourbon Street Pub which fronts on Duval Street. bourbon Street Pub''s garden bar is the neighbor for the Samaritan Lane property. That means you may hear music and some commotion at night. Click GOOGLE MAP for an aerial perspective of this property.

Maybe enough room for a pool?

The listing remarks refer to the house as being a shell. It is. But it's nice shell. It looks to me as the house has almost all new novelty siding, new windows, and new doors. The house needs new electric, plumbing, HVAC, interior drywall, etc. to complete the little house. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet.

Interior is ready for completion

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.
