Key West Waterfront Townhome - Bank Approved Short Sale - Record Breaker

3029 North Roosevelt Blvd. Unit No. 25 - Key West

There aren't that many homes, condos, or townhomes that are actually located at waters edge in Key West. And as a rule properties that are located on the water are pretty darned expensive. Rules are made to be broken. The listing agent for Key Cove Townhome Unit No. 25 sums up this bargain this way:
"Empty, Easy to show, Bank Approved Price, Quick Close! Highest class units built at Key Cove. Located at the rear of the property on the water (launch your kayak!) with Sunset and Gulf Vista. Spa is on second floor balcony rear overlooking the water."

I was really impressed with this unit. The unit is located at the very rear of the complex on waters edge. This unit and its nearby neighbors share a common Key West architecture that mimics the style of grand Conch houses of Old Town. But they have something the old places don't have - water views. That, and modern construction materials and techniques designed to make living less expensive and more enjoyable. Unit # 25 was built in 2002. It has 1400 sq ft of interior living space divided between two floors. The main level has an open kitchen and great room. There is a nice half bath on this level as well. But it is the rear balcony with the water views that make this unit so appealing. And then it gets even better.

Upstairs you will find a very good sized master bedroom which is located at the rear. While the main level has tiled floors, the stairway and bedrooms are carpeted. The master bedroom has an en-suite bath and large closet, but it is the rear second floor balcony with spa that really sets this unit off from other places similarly priced. Two more bedrooms are located at the front and each has access to the front balcony. Those bedrooms share another bathroom.

3029 North Roosevelt Blvd. Unit No. 25 if a short sale offered at $399,000. A previous offer was approved by the lender at a similar price. The buyer withdrew from that contract after the lender approved the price. The listing Realtor believes a new offer could easily be approved.

Having covered off street parking is a luxury in Key West. This unit has two covered parking spaces plus additional storage.

There is a nice area behind these townhomes filled with trees, tropical foliage, and mangroves. There is space already cut out for you to have access for your kayak or small boat. The water here is very shallow, but that's why small craft functions so well in places like this.

If you are looking for either a full time home or a getaway place in Key West, this unit might just work for you. It has great views, a shared community pool, water views, and it is affordably priced for the Key West market. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls data sheet on this unit.

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.
