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 $585,000. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet and to view more listing photos.
