If you are looking for that special Key West home with lots of space for you and your family and friends to enjoy, you may want to consider the 3213 sq ft five bedroom home located at 64 Front Street in the exclusive Truman Annex area in Old Town Key West. The listing Realtor describes this extraordinary property in an understated manner:
"Located in the gated community of Truman Annex, this 5 Bedroom/5 Bath home is the perfect Key West retreat. Designed by local architect for entertaining; blending indoor living with the tropical Key West outdoor life style. All rooms have French doors opening to covered porches. The 5th bedroom is located in the pool-side guest cottage. Opportunity exists for a 6th bedroom on the main level - adjacent to a full bath. Perfectly located for complete poolside privacy. Easy walking distance to restaurants, galleries, sunset celebration and Fort Zach."
The house has 3213 sq ft of living space on two floors. The facade faces Front Street which winds its way from the famous Presidential Gates up to Southard Street which then exits westerly to the oceanfront or easterly past the guard booth at Thomas Street. Almost all of the large single family homes in the area were built after the City of Key West annexed the property a couple of decades ago. A few historic homes became part of the development for good measure. The private streets provide a street scape that is near breathtaking. While some potential buyers may fret about a derelict little house on an otherwise historic block in Old Town, you won't find any reason to fret about the neighboring homes on Front Street. The views from the first and second floor front balconies are priceless.
Once inside you will find large and inviting rooms throughout this spacious home. The formal entry is gracious and inviting. The extra large living room is on the left. The space is so large that the grand piano barely stands out.
The study is located opposite the living room. The kitchen is located at the rear. A center hallway provides good separation between these spaces as is no longer typical in many properties these days.
The master bathroom is immense. It is seductive in its simplicity and design. You just gotta see it! And there is an adjacent extra large walk-in closet that will sate any clothes hound.
Just off the pool is the guest cottage which has Murphy bed on one wall, a sofa on another, and a mini-kitchen for making toast and coffee. The problem with having such a great set-up like this is that your free-loading brother in law will never leave. Of course there is the pool and the house even has covered off street parking at the rear. CLICK HERE to view a slideshow of photos I took of 64 Front Street. Take the time to take a look.
