626 Grinnell Street - Old Town - Key West

626 Grinnell Street - Old Town - Key West

The home at 626 Grinnell Street sits on one of the prettiest blocks in Old Town Key West. The home dates back to 1906.  Of course like most of the older homes in Key West, this property has been expanded a bit and updated over the years. The house has 2988 sq ft of living space under air conditioning plus gracious front porch and rear second story balcony off the very large master suite that takes up the back half of the home.


The listing agent describes this property thus:
"Gracious home with large, comfortable living areas hidden behind the facade of a Conch cottage. Currently configured as a two bedroom /three full bath home, this property has the potential and square footage for reconfiguration to a three bedroom home. It is a superb renovation with plenty of spaces to live in and enjoy, located in a great area. Formal living and dining rooms, a master bedroom with private deck and a heated pool and spa in a secluded setting make this a property that should be seen by anyone interested in the Old Town area. Plenty of storage & closet space. Hurricane shutters all around, solar assisted hot water and four zone A/C are among the many convenience and green living feature."
626 Grinnell Street is located one house north of where the street dead ends into the Key West cemetery at Angela Street. Angela Street at that location is a one way street heading west toward Margaret Street. The location is quiet not only because proximity to the cemetery but also because Conch Trains and trolleys don't traverse this street.

One of the darling Key West pocket parks is located across the street. The park is a nice respite for thinking or walking the doggies.

I don't often discuss houses on a price per sq ft basis because our housing supply is so diverse and that it is difficult to compare the value of an older home like this with its large rooms, features like the ornate tin ceilings and intricate woodwork found in the main level rooms to other properties. I'll make this exception. I just searched our mls and found only ten single family homes in the Old Town area that are 2500 sq ft or large. The average square foot asking price is $754. This property is the lowest priced home on a per sq basis of any of the ten houses.

If you would like to see this home or any other property in Key West, please contact me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642 or send me an email kw1101v@aol.com.  I am a buyers agent and a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Key West

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.
