617 Fleming Street #2 - Key West

617 Fleming Street
The Campbell Courtyard Condominiums  are located at 617 Fleming Street just a little over one block east of Duval Street. The location is close enough to Duval Street and the Historic Key West Seaport that you can be in either place in about five minutes or less. But they are far enough away from the hooting and hollering that happens from time to time. Many of the neighboring properties are among the finest examples of the grand architecture for which Key West is known. And there are still some untouched houses that make our Old Town area so appealing. The area is chic but not too chic. CLICK HERE to view a Google aerial view of the location.



The Campbell Courtyard Condos were "developed" or assembled from a group of unrelated buildings into a cluster which share an incredibly inviting pool and garden. The nine units quickly sold, and there has been a slow turnover of ownership since then. The main building shown above was built in the 1920s and the eyebrow cottage (just below) was built in the 1890s. All buildings were thoroughly renovated during the condo conversion.


Unit #2 was just listed, but not by me, at the asking price of $449,000. This two bedroom, two bath unit has 840 sq ft of living space under air plus a private semi-enclosed patio located adjacent to the inviting pool.  The unit has an assigned off street parking spot and is also offered furnished.

 I think this unit would make a wonderfull Key West getaway place or a full time residence for the person or couple who has dreamed of owning a cute little place in the Old Town area. Remember I said this place is furnished - from the furniture to the pots and pans. You need only bring  your toothbrush(s)!  The covered patio is probably where you will spend much of your time. It is located just off the living room. It has a curved lattice privacy wall that permits you to see out to the pool and garden but offers privacy as well.


The unit has two full bedrooms and two full baths. The master bedroom has a wrap around windows of a sort that permits diffused light from the east into the bedroom. The kitchen has windows that look out to the pool. What a pleasant view that is. CLICK HERE to view a slideshow of photos of this unit and the compound.

Hope they get the asking price but I highly doubt it. Great location - not sure if this is the same unit I looked at a few years ago but it looks similar if not the same one which may have been slightly smaller and was priced far below this.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

My photo
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.
