Attention Key West bargain hunters, this is your second chance at this Bank Owned house that just went back on the market on August 8th. It went under contract right after it was listed a couple of weeks ago. For whatever reason, the house is now available a second time. I took a quick peek this morning, snapped some pics, and I am here to report that I think this is a good deal. (Not that my opinion means that much.)
1221 20th Street is located on the east end of the island of Key West. It sits on a large lot (6,900 sq ft (69' x 100') at the corner of Donald Avenue and 20th Street. This is a family area of Key West where most of the homes, like this one, are ranch style homes. This home was built in 1965. The Monroe County Property Appraiser shows this house as having 1,646 sq ft of living space under air. I suspect the living space is actually larger than that as a former carport appears to have been enclosed to create a mother in law apartment and a back porch may have also been enclosed to create the more recent laundry room.
The main house appears to have been recently painted and updated with new carpet in the master bedroom and a second bedroom. The main living area and kitchen have Salitllo tile floors. The kitchen appears to have been remodeled and updated in the past few years. A nice pantry sits just off the kitchen. The house appeared to me to be in move in condition.

I think the really attractive feature of this home is the large backyard and pool area. There is a lot of space, a nice pool in place, and lots of room to create a really wonderful outdoor living area. A lot has already been done, but it is not perfect-yet. But it could be. See the photos below and imagine how you could embellish this property and make it your own.
The rear and south side of the property have a lot of potential for a new home owner with a green thumb. The area is ready for some TLC, some creativity, add a few extra bucks to complete the landscaping of this really pretty pool and garden area.
