Are you making a list and check it twice, trying to find a place that's comfy and nice? If so, consider 626 Grinnell Street which the the listing Realtor at Preferred Properties describes this way:
"Gracious home with large, comfortable living areas hidden behind the facade of a Conch cottage. Currently configured as a two bedroom/three full bath home, this property has the potential and square footage for reconfiguration to a three bedroom home. It is a superb renovation with plenty of spaces to live in and enjoy, located in a great area. Formal living and dining rooms, a master bedroom with private deck and a heated pool and spa in a secluded setting make this a property that should be seen by anyone interested in the Old Town area. No shortage of closets or storage areas which is unusual. Hurricane shutters all around, solar assisted hot water and four zone A/C are among the many convenience and green living features."I dug deep into the old shoe box and found a photo of 626 Grinnell Street as it appeared in 1965. Compare the historic black and white photo with the current color pic and you will see that not much has changed. The house has newer windows and doors, shutters, and a white picket fence has also been added. But the house, otherwise, looks pretty much the same.
The house from the street appears deceptively small. It is not. This house as 2928 sq ft of living space divided between first and second floor. Inside, the house has been updated and expanded with renovations to the kitchen and bathrooms. There is a a pool in the rear and a second floor sundeck was added off the master bedroom suite. The house has a genuine old house feel and I mean that in the nicest of terms. This property is offered at $1,248,000, or just $426 per sq ft.

626 Grinnell Street is located near the south end of Grinnell Street where dead ends into the Key West cemetery on Angela Street. Angela Street at that location is a one way street heading west to Margaret Street. The location is quiet not only because proximity to the cemetery but also because Conch Trains and trolleys don't traverse this street.
One of the darling Key West pocket parks is located across the street. The park is a nice respit for thinking or walking the doggies.
