204 - 1 Southard Street - Shipyard Condos - Truman Annex - Key West

A lot of potential buyers of second homes in Key West have a wish list of items they desire which typically includes two bedrooms, two baths, off street parking, a pool, and an ability to rent the place from time to time in order to help make the purchase more affordable. Almost everybody wants a convenient location close to all of the fun things to do in Old Town. Unfortunately for most buyers, there are more buyers than properties and prices are for available properties are priced beyond the comfort level of many.

Every once in a while a property becomes available that has the key features that attracts a large universe of potential buyers. The Shipyard Condo at 204-1 Southard Street is just such a property. The listing Realtor describes this unit as follows:
"One of only three Cottages on the Shipyard Park, this end unit, two story condominium is loaded. It features a huge rear courtyard w/ awning and new entertaining deck. It is located across from the swimming pool and is only a short walk to its parking space. The home has a brand new kitchen with granite counter tops, there are storm shutters on all openings, plantation shutters inside, tile floors down and carpeting up. There is a bedroom on the main level with full bath and two bedrooms (one is small) with one more bath on the second. Shipyard is a condominium assoc. in the Truman Annex Gated Community which is located just beyond MM 0 in Oldtown and at the entry to Ft. Zach Taylor Beach. This unit comes with Transient Rental License."

This two story unit has 1100 sq ft of living space, three bedrooms, two baths, a large indoor living area, and a pleasant rear deck. The place is so inviting from the outside that your friends and potential vacation renters will fall for it at first sight. You cannot beat the location on Shipyard Park. The views are just capitivating. The setting is picture perfect. Guests will dream of the cute little house and quiet location and probably plan to return again just to stay in this special little house. And that means you should keep this transient rental licensed unit rented throughout the year when you or your family are not using it (subject to licensing restrictions).

The unit is laid out with the dining and kitchen located at front left and a bedroom at front right. The living room is at the rear which has two sets of French doors that open onto the rear deck. The master bedroom and a third bedroom are located on the second floor. The rear deck provides additional outdoor living space where one can wine and dine in style. The pool is across the park within a 90 second walk.

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.
