829 Simonton Street - Bank Owned - Old Town - Key West
Preferred Properties Key West just listed the landmark building at 829 Simonton Street in Old Town Key West. I wrote about this property several months ago when it was a short sale that, well, didn't sell. Now the building is Bank Owned and Offered at $935,000.
The building was originally built circa 1874 and was significantly updated in 2002. The building sold in 2004 for $1,600,000. The building was updated again when the last commercial tenant customized the offices which occupy the main floor, or about 2858 sq ft. The offices have been divided into two separate office units but can be easily combined into one large space as was the most recent use. Upstairs there are two apartments. The upstairs is made up of two residential units. One unit is a 2br/2ba with 1678 square feet. The other is a 1br/1ba affordable housing unit with 463 square feet. There is off street parking to accommodate seven vehicles and the building has both handicapped access and handicapped bathroom facilities.

I distinctly remember going inside the old building at 829 Simonton Street on Superbowl Sunday (January 25, 1987). The place was a sandwich shop called "La Bodega". I had spent the afternoon at Atlantic Shores and wanted to grab a sandwich. The place was near and the food was good. My needs were met. Fast forward 25 years and the building looks pretty much the same.
