726 Olivia Street -Key West - October 2012
The little one bedroom cottage at 726 Olivia Street just may appeal to the buyer who wants to purchase a modest Key West house that sits on a decent sized lot in a good location and which is located within an easy walking distance to Duval Street. The cottage has 570 sq ft of living space plus the screen enclosed front porch and a rear porch. The interior is pretty nondescript. It does have some Dade County Pine. The listing Realtor states that around 2002 the following improvements were made to the property: electric service panel, new plumbing, new piers and new roof over rear porch & gable.

I showed the property on a rainy afternoon and was unable to take the kinds of photos I would have liked. What intrigued me about this house isn't so much the house - I know it can be made into something very sweet. That happens all the time here. Instead it was what you can't see from the street and what a casual passer-by will miss - the backyard and the off street parking spot. I dug deep into the old shoe box and found a photo of the property taken in 1965. What I found was a photo of the back of the house instead of the front.
