818 Whitehead Street - Old Town - Key West

818 Whitehead Street sits behind these homes

Just Listed, but not by me, a stand alone cottage at 818 Whitehead Street. This stand alone condo home is located in a sweet little compound one block off Duval Street. This place is affordably priced at just $274,950. It has one bedroom, one bath, solid wood cabinets, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, cathedral ceilings, maple hardwood flooring, two private porches, and there is even a pool. This property is a legal condominium, but it stands by itself in a compound of other small but sharp small houses.

818 Whitehead Street

This house is located at the rear of the compound. Access is through a white picket fence on Whitehead Street that is located about 1/2 block north of the Hemingway House. All of the units were either built new or renovated in 2005. This is a newly built unit from the ground up. It has just 415 square feet. The living room, bath with glass tiled shower, and kitchen with stainless steel appliances occupy the first floor. French doors open off the kitchen to a side porch on the east side. A wooden spiral staircase takes you to the second floor loft style bedroom. That area is open to the living space below so the entire house has a lot of volume. There is a charming small front porch that overlooks the pool. There is even a small white picket fence that encloses this home and lot.

Monthly condo fees are $219 and include building exterior maintenance, building insurance, common area maintenance, and pool service.

The pool is really cute. It isn't big, but it is larger than some I have seen in much larger single family homes in Old Town. All of the grounds are nicely landscaped. The gardens have a sprinkler system that works. I know. I got soaked as I was making my way to the rear. The other houses look very well maintained. 818 Whitehead Street is certainly worth a look if you are a single person or a couple that wants a little Key West getaway. There is no off street parking.

If you are looking for a low priced Key West getaway place, this is certainly worth considering.

The Captain says:

It is neither "Whitead" nor "Whithead." It is Whitehead! (As a long time reader of your blog, you always seem to have a problem with this street. I remember in one post you confused it with White Street.)

Captain out..................

I got problems, Captain. Sometimes I look but still do not see.

Whitehead or whatever - we get the gist of what he means. Egads Captain - if you want to nit pick over a blog why don't you go ahead and write one yourself about Key West real estate?!

So sick and tired of idiots in front of their computers thinking they are 'better' than everyone else or must 'correct' the language skills of someone else.

Captain tell the truth - would you correct Gary in public? In a conversation with others? Or how about during negotiations over a contract for purchase on a house?

How would YOU like if others corrected your speech and language skills? Or your taste in clothes, food, friends, lovers, etc.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

My photo
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.
