1709 Washington Street - Key West, Florida

I recently showed some potential buyers the really charming house at 1709 Washington Street which I told my buyers was located in "the country".  Up north in America the term country evokes the image of wheat or corn fields, cows and chickens, and a quite pastoral lifestyle.  Down here in Key West country conjures up houses with big lots located on one of the side streets with no sidewalks and tropical landscaping in the area just east of White Street on the south end of the island.  We met the listing broker at the house and she shared with us a similar feeling about the location and this particular house as having a country feel.  In her listing, the broker describes 1709 Washington Street this way:
"This charming historic home features two bedrooms, two baths plus a large eat-in kitchen, high ceilings with crown moldings and a wrap around porch. There is a spacious covered porch that functions as an outdoor living/dining room and opens to the sunny decked pool area. Easy to see."
The single story home at 1709 Washington Street has 1017 sq ft of living space under air. It sits on a 52' x 94' (4862 sq ft) lot near the corner of Ashby Street. That's in the general area where Mid Town Key West begins. Most of the homes in this area are single family and most of those are owner occupied. The lots tend to be larger than Old Town so the density is much less in this area. This home is offered at $585,000CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet and to view more listing photos.

This home has a really nice back area with a semi-enclosed deck area with orchid garden. The pool is extra large and ought to remain quite sunny during most of the day. Buyers who like to actually swim in a pool will love this pool. And there is even an outdoor shower. Move to Key West and you will learn to really love taking showers under the sun or moon.

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.
