232 Golf Club Drive - Bank Owned - Key West

232 Golf Club Drive - Key West

Just listed, but not by me, a really attractive spa home located inside the cloistered Sanctuary at the Key West Golf Club community.  I got a chance to visit this new Bank Owned listing this morning, took some photos which you may view if you CLICK HERE.  This 1120 Sq Ft home has two bedrooms, two and one-half baths, a spa pool, covered off street parking, and it is offered at only $384,900.  I challenge you bargain hunters to find anything comparable as far as age, amenities, or price in the Key West area. I don't think you can do it.

The listing Realtor describes 232 Golf Club Drive thus:
"Island Style Living At Its Best In This Private Community The Sanctuary, A Gated Community Within Key West Golf Club. Spacious Living Area On The First Floor With French Doors Leads You Outside To Enjoy The Dip Pool. Second Floor Has 2 Bedrooms Each With Their Own Bath, A Laundry Closet, And A Large Balcony Off The Master Bedroom. Needs Your Personal Touches." 

I liked this place. Most of the rooms are painted green which I find to be a little "wrong", but that's an easy thing to fix. The kitchen appliances are dated and are relatively an inexpensive fix as well. The main floor is tiled and looks to be in good shape. I did not notice any damaged tiles. The stairway and second floor bedrooms are carpeted. The carpet needs replaced. Again, that is an easy fix. 

The master bedroom with en-suite bath is located on the second floor. The bedroom has a vaulted ceiling which adds a spacious feel to the room that has windows on two sides plus access to the front second floor balcony which spans the house.  The second bedroom has a good sized en-suite bath as well, bu tit does not have access to the balcony. Speaking of the balcony: the view is killer! Wow! This view here belies the inexpensive price tag. Your friends and family will be so jelly!

I also looked at the outside. I did not see any rotted framing on the window trim which is sometimes seen on some houses there. This home looks like it has been well maintained. The front facade almost looked like it had been freshly painted. It wasn't, but it looked to be in excellent condition.  That to me means a new buyer will not need to be doing many exterior "fit-it" jobs.

The back area is where us Key Westers spend much of our life. The outdoor area here has a "spa" or mini-pool.  You can't do laps in that pool, but you can relax and enjoy your Key West home.  The little garden could use a little fixing. It doesn't look bad; it just doesn't look as cute as it could. Again, this is an easy and inexexpensive fix.

Even though this home is unattached to any other property, it is classified as a town home.  As such the homeowner is responsible for exterior maintenance, insurance, etc. 

 The covered parking spot is located 46 paces from the front entrance to 232 Golf Club Drive. That's sixty seconds or less. More if you are old. But it's convenient no matter what.

The Key West Golf Club Community has two pools, one of which quite large. There is also a fitness center available to homeowners at no extra fee. And of course the homes are all located next to the golf course. The community grounds are meticulously maintained.  The home owner association fees are $333 per month. This fee includes cable tv, common area maintenance, security, and management.

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.
