760 Washington Street - Casa Marina Estate Property - Key West

760 Washington Street - Key West

The new listing at 760 Washington Street in Key West will surely appeal to the buyer who wants an estate type property. This home was newly constructed in 1987. A few years later a new master bedroom wing was added. The house sits on the corner of William and Washington Street in the tony Casa Marina Area of Key West. My friend, Doug Mayberry, is the listing broker who describes this special property this way:
"This Casa Marina estate is located on a double corner lot. The four bedrooms and four baths include a master wing with vaulted ceilings, fireplace and walk in closet. The large kitchen is adjacent to the dining room and large, vaulted living room. French doors open at every turn to over 800 sq. ft. of porches, lanai and an outdoor kitchen for entertaining. The 12 x 24 foot pool is surrounded by professionally landscaped gardens including a koi pond with waterfall. There are carports on both sides of the property and a total of five off-street parking spaces. Secluded, luxurious, and located just steps from the Atlantic Ocean."

This place almost has a storybook look from the street. Every detail on the outside is so fine tuned that you expect nothing but the best on the inside. The house sits at the corner of William and Washington Street. A couple of years ago I wrote a blog post about the house at the end of the opposite en d of the block that was featured in Architectural Digest. This is a neighborhood of mostly large homes on lushly landscaped large lots. 760 Washington Street surely fits right in.

"...you know you have arrived ..."

French doors open from living room out to covered porch

Once you pass the white picket fence and step up to the covered front porch you know you have arrived at someplace very special. Inside you are awed by the size of the living room with its vaulted ceiling and immense space. So many homes in Key West have tiny little rooms or spaces where owners are forced to 'make do' with limited space. Here, there is an abundance of space and volume within which to create your own personal environment.


Just to the left of the living room is the dining area which opens into the kitchen. The spaces flow together with ease. Another doorway off the kitchen opens into the living area. Just to the left is a hallway that leads to the bedrooms. Two bedrooms (one the original master and the other used now used as an office) plus two baths are located in this wing of the house. Multiple sets of French doors open out to the covered porch and enchanting pool and seductive gardens.

Hallway to guest bedrooms and bathrooms

Guest bedroom number one (of three)


Also located just off the kitchen is spiral staircase that leads to a second level loft bedroom. The space is a great escape for the grand kids and guests.

New master bedroom suite with fireplace and other amenities


A new master bedroom wing was added to the west side of the home. Besides the huge master bedroom with fireplace and en-suite bath you will find a large ante-room with wine cooler and walk-in closet. A separate mini kitchen was added where you can get your coffee to wake-up or your nightcap to help you go to sleep.

Be prepared to be seduced...

The porch wraps around the back side of the house at a 90 degree angle and provides covered outdoor access to all parts of the house. A large provides both sun and shaded areas off the large pool. The lanai is extra large and has easy access to the mini kitchen. A night path winds its way through the gardens where you will pass the koi pond. The pool, of course, is the star of this backyard show.

This really is one of the prettiest houses in that neighborhood. Fantastic landscaping and street appeal. I bike around that area quite often and am especially envious of the two separate covered parking areas. Price seems a tad steep, but it's a wonderful home.

There are carports on both ends of the property and a complete of five off-street vehicle areas. Hidden, magnificent, and placed just actions from the Beach Water.

Lovely home indeed, but price is out of line.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

My photo
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.
