628 William Street - Old Town - Key West

628 William Street - Old Town - Key West

Just listed, but not by me, 628 William Street in Old Town Key West. The listing Realtor describes this beautiful Key West home this way:
"This gorgeous property is located on one of the finest blocks in Old Town Key West. The two bedroom, two and a half bath home includes an office overlooking the pool and an additional den which can be used as a third bedroom. The main level has a formal entry, powder room and large open great room with French doors to the pool, landscaped yard and loggia, perfect for alfresco dining or entertaining. The spacious master suite includes an abundance of closet space and a custom designed bath with enormous walk-in shower. The second bedroom is roomy with lots of windows and ensuite bath. Additional amenities include wood floors, surround sound, off-street parking and a wonderful large front porch overlooking beautiful William Street."

The Monroe County Property Appraiser shows that the original house (pictured below in the black and white photo) was built in 1928. It appears the newer renovations were done in the late 1980s. The facade is much different and the interior are most certainly different than original. The main level floors are dark and set off the bright white trim to perfection.

I doubt there is another home anywhere like this in Key West

628 William Street has 1524 sq ft of living space and sits on a 44' x 69' lot (2931 sq ft) on one of the best blocks in Key West. The white picket fence, bricked off street parking, and tropically landscaped front yard fortell the beauty beyond the facade.

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.
