Home Buy Chirstmas #10 - Old Town Key West

1011 Eaton Street - Old Town - Key West

Wouldn't it be lovely to open the front door and welcome your friends and family to this wonderful Key West home next year at Christmas? You can. It is offered for sale this year. The listing Realtor describes 1011 Eaton Street this way:
"This beautifully renovated home was once a Rumrunner's house. It still retains much of its original character with Dade Pine walls and hardwood floors and a handsome wood staircase. The upstairs master suite includes a separate office space, large walk-in closet with additional storage. There are two bedrooms each with a bath on the first floor plus a separate office. French doors open from the kitchen and breakfast area to the covered dining and sitting porch. There is a heated pool with lounging area, spa jets and waterfall. The rear gazebo is perfect for reading or relaxing in a hammock. There is covered gated parking in the rear off Thompson Lane. This home is located just one block from the Historic Seaport."
I recently showed this property and was totally 'taken' by the relaxed and welcoming style of this very charming home. The house has 2064 sq feet of living space divided evenly between first and second floors. The lot is deceptively large from the front because you only see the crisp white picket fence from the front. After you open the front door your eyes are immediately drawn past the French doors at the rear of the house toward the pool and garden beyond. Egads! The rear is just amazing!

Some of the biggest gripes of many potential buyers include the small size of bedrooms, or bathrooms, or the pool being too small or too shady, or the yard too overgrown, or there is no parking. That is not the case here. The rooms are spacious. Each bedroom has its own large bath. The front yard is perfectly dignified. The back yard is spacious and sunny. There is even covered off street parking. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet on this property that is offered at $1,285,000.

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.
