1307 Eliza Street - Key West

1307 Eliza Street - Key West

What images come into your mind when you read of hear the term "Key West Cottage"? Do you think of a cozy little house with small rooms and tropical foliage? The newly listed Key West cottage at 1307 Eliza Street has the tropical foliage, but the rooms (and living spaces) are not small by any means. This place is Key West chic! To the nines. The listing Realtor describes this property this way:
"Wonderful architect designed house that has lots of character and a great Key West feel. Open high ceilings in the living and dining room and an excellent floor plan. Multiple sets of French doors to the patio and plunge pool. Indoor and outdoor dining and a lovely orchid garden. 2 BR/2BA plus an office and parking for two cars off street."

The house has 1350 sq ft of living space under air plus porches and deck. The 3773 sq ft lot (46.17' x 81.75') lot is located a little over one block east of White Street in the area some locals call the Arts District. The largest and most familiar neighbor is Bayview Park which is located one block to the north. This home is typical of many others in the immediate area which have been updated and refined. I would say most of the homes in this area are owner occupied. There is a small mix of rentals in the area, and there is limited amount of commercial confined to White Street.

1307 Eliza Street was built circa 1920s

The house was substantially renovated from its original design. Windows and doors were obviously replaced. The main entry was relocated to the side of the house, typical of many Key West homes which use front rooms for alternate living purposes. In this house, the master bedroom and bath are located at the front and the old front porch is now a private outside area. The ceiling was vaulted and French doors were added as was the pool. The roof was replaced in 2008. The house sparkles from every direction.

What a great kitchen - it even has a pantry!

Guest bedroom has an adjacent office

Master bedroom with en-suite bath

Private outdoor sitting area off master suite

It's a sad fact that many of the Key West cottages in old town sit on tiny lots and do not have the space for a pool, or parking, or luxuries like an orchid garden. But this Key West cottage has all three.


Orchid garden - all that is missing is you!

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.
