Home Buy Christmas #7 - Historic Seaport Area - Key West

815 Sawyer Lane - December 2011

If you sent Santa a checklist of features you want in your Key West dream home, I'll bet that list includes three bedrooms, two baths, a pool, off street parking, cute as a button, located on a Key West lane, and reasonably priced. Preferred Properties Coastal Realty, Inc. (that's where I work but this is not my listing) just listed the near perfect Key West dream house. The listing Realtor described the new listing at 815 Sawyer Lane thus:
"This classic eyebrow home is located on a hidden lane in the heart of the Historic Key West Seaport District. The property features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a great room with French doors that open to an enclosed patio area, lap pool, and lush tropical setting. The second floor master suite offers privacy, extensive storage, and a separate balcony with French doors that invite warm breezes from the Gulf. The bricked driveway, blooming hibiscus, and inviting front porch welcome you to this charming retreat in the heart of Old Town."
Sawyer Lane enters from William Street

815 Sawyer Lane was built circa 1889. The Key West seaport is just a block to the north. Many of the houses and commercial buildings of that era still exist but have been updated to meet the needs of modern living. This home was updated in the 1990's.


Downstairs you will find what appear to be the original wood floors which have been white washed. The kitchen is located up front on the right. Two guest bedrooms and a main floor bath are on the left side. A center hall lures you to the rear of the house where the new great room was added. This room has a high vaulted ceiling and several sets of doors that open onto the pool at the rear or the decks on the left and right side of this eyebrow home. The master suite is located on the second floor. It features a large bedroom and super huge bath plus a nice rear balcony that overlooks the seaport. You can see the water and some boats. The home has 1370 sq ft of living space.

815 Sawyer Lane is offered at $829,000. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet.

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.
