1514 4th Street - Key West

The three bedroom two bath family home located at 1514 4th Street in the Mid Town area of Key West became even more affordable with the price reduction to just $359,000 or $245 per sq ft for this 1466 sq ft home. I think the house may actually be a bit larger which, if true, would reduce the price per sq ft a bit. The lot is 54'x96' or 5184 sq ft. Most of the houses in this immediate neighborhood were built around the same time, 1966, and most have been updated since then.

The listing Realtor describes this home this way:
"Room for your family and friends in this centrally located home! This 3/2 plus den needs only a touch to make it yours. The kitchen is redone, and the house has all new windows, doors, and a/c from the airport mitigation upgrades. The rear yard contains an over sized pool with decks and covered area for barbecue parties. The yard is fully fenced and has room for off-street parking, too. Make this your home today!"

As luck would have it my camera went bonkers on the day I showed this house earlier this week. So I don't have any photos that I took except the front shot. The listing agent provided me with the pool photos below. The interior was updated after Wilma. The kitchen is new and the tile floors look quite new. I liked the tile color, material, and size. It ought to go with about any decor. The house interior would greatly benefit from a fresh coat of paint. The exterior trim could use a paint job as well. The front and rear yards could look so much better the areas got some new landscaping.

There is a nice pool at the rear. The pool and backyard are quite large, but the area surrounding the pool is dull. It needs landscaped to provide a tropical look and to add some privacy.

The house was the beneficiary of the airport mitigation program in 2006 which included new windows, doors, air conditioning, and insulation. The house got a new roof in 2009. Those upgraded features should reduce windstorm insurance premiums for a new owner.

If you are looking for a good sized family home at a good price, this home is certainly worth considering. Painting, cleaning, and landscaping are things most homeowners are capable of doing on their own. And you don't have to cost a lot of money to achieve a great result.

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.
