11 Whistling Duck Lane - Key West

I recently showed an absolutely beautiful three bedroom town home at the Key West Golf Club that might appeal to a buyer seeking a move-in ready home that has been smartly upgraded and lovingly maintained.  I am speaking about 11 Whistling Duck Lane that is offered at $349,000. The listing Realtor describes the property this way:
"A must see Golf club unit - completely remodeled kitchen and freshly painted through out - 3br/2ba upstairs (a bedroom/converted to Artist Loft!)Screened porch with hidden 2 person jacuzzi."

I have been inside a lot of golf club homes and this is truly a one-of-a-kind. Take the kitchen for starters. It is hidden behind a folding screen to reveal a neatly crafted work space for meal preparation. A beautiful credenza topped with granite acts performs double duty as a kitchen "island" and piece of furniture when the kitchen is not in use. The dining and living room seem to flow out to the screened rear porch which is artfully decorated and provides substantial additional living space. Upstairs the master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, en-suite bath, and closets with lots of built-ins. There are two other bedrooms on this floor.

 The rear garden is reminiscent of an English garden. It is that cute. And it is located in sub-tropical Key West and not in rainy England. The space is quite and protected by a small mangrove between the houses on Whistling Duck Lane and the smaller of two golf club community pools. You can walk to this pool in just a couple of minutes.  The larger pool and community fitness center are also within walking distance.

I checked the exterior of this home to compare its condition to others I have seen. I can report this place looks as good as new. The Hardiboard siding looks freshly painted. The wood trim all appeared to be in perfect condition.  The homeowner has places gravel around the side of the property and every thing looks spotless. That's a plus as I don't see anything a new owner might have to do after closing on this house.  Sometimes, some places require a lot of work. Not so here. 

Homeowner Association fees at the Key West Golf Club community are $333 per month and include (manned and gated) security, common area maintenance, and cable television.

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.
