415 Margaret Street - Key West - May 2012 - Present Perfect!
415 Margaret Street - Key West - A view from the Past - 1979
Wikipedia defines the grammatical term 'present perfect' as a combination of the present tense and the perfect aspect used to express a past event with present consequences. I think the two above photos eloquently demonstrate that term.
Roger Emmons at Truman and Company describes his present perfect listing at 415 Margaret Street:
"This is one of those very special homes where all of the elements come together to create an incredible setting for the perfect Key West lifestyle. The home is a beautiful combination of historic restoration and superior renovation with a wonderful floor plan that includes three ensuite bedrooms including the master suite which is located in a private wing overlooking the landscaped gardens and 40 foot pool. At the rear of the property is a spacious guest cottage complete with living room, kitchen, bedroom and secluded hot tub. Thoughtful details include large shady porches, Chicago brick patios and pathways that meander through the tropically landscaped gardens. Very private with off-street parking."

The stairway shown above leads to two bedrooms with en suite baths. Both play off the simple original design of the historic house.

The new master suite addition, however, is a different matter. The suite is located off a private alcove whereupon you enter into the bedroom chamber with vaulted ceiling and French doors that open out to a private porch overlooking the pool and gardens. The extra large en-suite bath includes his and hers sinks, shower, bathtub, and an outdoor shower.
