812 Fleming Street #4 - Newly Listed Condo - Heart of Old Town Key West

Just listed, but not by me, 812 Fleming Street Unit #4 in the Seafoam Condominium in the heart of Old Town Key West.  You'd think this is my listing because I just love this building and this incredible location. The listing Realtor describes this unit this way:
"Wonderful Old Town condominium in beautiful condition and ready to move in. 9ft ceilings, Dade County pine walls and floors throughout, central air and a fabulous 200sf balcony overlooking Fleming Street. This second floor, one bedroom, one bath unit has 610sf of living space is a true gem. In the back yard there is a pool and private grounds. Seafoam Condominiums consists of eight condominiums & two commercial units."
 Door opens out to the balcony overlooking Fleming Street

This one bedroom one bath unit has 610 sq ft of space under air conditioning. The bonus is the wonderful front balcony that adds 210 sq ft of covered out door living space that overlooks one of the most interesting blocks in all of Key West.

 If you are a fan of great architecture, you will just love the interior hallways at Seafoam. I think this building is just wonderful. Every time I enter the hall I marvel at the richness of this space.

 The rear stairway leads to the pool and a coin operated laundry room. Some of the units in the building have their own laundry. This unit does not. The good thing is you only have to walk the equivalent to walking downstairs to your basement to clean your clothes. You might get a chance to see someone cute by the pool and get lucky. That probably won't happen on your way to your basement.

The building has only eight residential condo units plus two commercial units on the ground floor. One is a doctor's office and the other is Timmy Tuxedo, where Key West's finest waiters shop. A note of interest is the fact that this building does have a secured entrance with buzzer system.

If you are seriously considering buying a getaway place in Key West and want to keep the costs under control, consider this property. Forget that it has one bedroom. There are lots of guest houses located on the same block. Think of all the money you can save on not buying an extra bedroom or feeding your family and friends.  Even if you have pay for the guest house visit, you are money ahead.

Monthly condo fees are $410 which includes cable tv, water, sewer, trash removal, common area and pool maintenance, and building insurance.

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.
