Frequent readers know that I live in the Casa Marina area of Key West (it's the quieter location close to the Atlantic Ocean where home most of the homes are large and sit on equally large lots). Preferred Properties (that's where I work but this is not my listing) has a small cottage style home that is actually located only a few doors from where I live. I wrote about this cottage home when it was first listed. I am surprised that it has not sold yet. I decided to comment about the place again. The listing Realtor who also lives in the area describes the property like this:
"This lovely 2/2 Conch cottage is located on a quiet street in the desirable Casa Marina neighborhood. Some of the home features include a living room with cathedral ceiling, kitchen with granite countertops, two french doors (one off the of master bedroom), two patios plus a covered porch to enjoy the excellent outdoor living that Key West has to offer. Property is set back from the street for additional privacy."
The cottage sits behind a white picket fence to the rear of the 36' x 94' (3404 sq ft) lot. The cottage has 854 sq ft of living space plus decks. The Monroe County public records show the house was built in 1938, but we know that was during the Great Depression. Other larger houses in this particular block were built in 1906 and 1907. I suspect this cottage was built some time prior to 1938. Public records also show that the house was updated in 2000. The interiors offer large vaulted ceilings and user friendly bedroom spaces. Even though this place is called a 'cottage' it has all the convenieces of a much larger space. Offered at just $595,000.
