Just listed, but not by me, a home the listing agent fondly describes as a historic treasure.
"Located on one of the most desirable streets in Old Town Key West sits this historic 4 bedroom treasure. Loved and cared for by the same family since the 1950's, this home offers a tremendous opportunity to enjoy the best of Old Town living. Large lot with ample room for a pool, off-street parking for 3 cars and a rare and highly coveted garage make this an attractive property for renovation. Located in the X-zone near Solares Hill on a quiet and charming street in a neighborhood of million dollar homes. A Grande Dame of A Conch House in Old Town Key West."
The house sits in the middle of the block. The neighbor to the immediate north is the Monroe County Public Library. The neighbor to the south is a similarly built and well maintained Conch house. Most of the houses on the block are old, in fact, one directly across the street is among the oldest on the island. That was the first house I sold in Key West. Interestingly, one of the newest houses in Key West is being built adjacent to the old house right now. I have mentioned the new house a couple of times in recent blogs that discussed various construction projects in Key West. See a photo of the really new house just below.
517 Elizabeth Street is offered at $775,000 or just $338 per sq ft. I expect this home will be under contract (probably all cash if custom rules) within a short time. This is exactly the type of home buyers with an urge to redo want to purchase. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls database for more information on this new listing.
