3300 Riviera Drive - Key West

The home at 3300 Riviera Drive will appeal to a buyer who wants a house in Key West and on the water. This expansive home with 3402 sq ft of indoor living space was newly built in 1999,  The home is located on the Riviera Canal across from Little Hamaca Park and which has easy boating access to the Atlantic and Gulf. The listing Realtor at Preferred Properties describes the listing this way:
"Situated on three lots with direct water access sits this magnificent two story home with a two car garage and mother-in law suite. As you enter this home, you are greeted by a large living/dining/kitchen space with pocket sliding doors, bringing the outside in. There is a large covered lanai with an outdoor kitchen overlooking the canal and pool which is surrounded by rare tropical plants. On the first level is a bedroom/bath currently being used as an office. On the second level there is en-suite guest room and oversized Master with a very large bathroom complete with jacuzzi,custom fitted walk-in closets, all surrounded by balconies over looking the pool and canal. An electronic lift will hold up to a 12,000 pound boat."
This home is located in the Riviera Shores Subdivision where many of the homes were built in the 1960s and 1970s. This is one of several homes that were built in the last fifteen years on premium waterfront lots in this sought after location. Even though Key West is an island surrounded by water (what else?) there are few single family homes that are actually located on the water. This is one of them.

This home has a welcoming foyer that opens into the combined living, dining and kitchen area.  One quite large guest bedroom with en suite bath is located on this level as well. Second guest guest bedroom is located on the second floor on the canal side of the home.  The extra large master suite takes up much of the second floor. This area includes a sumptuous master bath lots of closets. Sets of sliding doors open out to the covered covered second floor porch and first floor veranda.

The two car garage has a second level mother in law suite complete with its own private entrance so she doesn't have to come through the house every time she gets home from yoga classes or writing seminars.
The outdoor living area at this home is wonderful. The covered veranda wraps around the area from the garage all the way to the guest bedroom on the far south side of the home. The outdoor kitchen is shown just above.

The first time I saw any house on the Rivera Canal was at Christmas in 1993. I went on one of the house tours and a canal house was included. I had no idea the canal existed and absolutely no idea who incredibly beautiful and peaceful the mangroves are. Over the years I have shown houses on the Riviera canal and others over in Key Haven. The difference between the two is remarkable. Canal houses on Key Haven usually have neighbors on the opposite side of the canal who can watch you in your pool or on your lanai. Not much privacy in that kind of situation. There are no neighbors with opposing views on the Riviera Canal.

3300 Riviera Drive is offered at $1,999,999. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet and listing photos. If you would like to see this home, please contact me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642.

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.
