1109 Virginia Street - Old Town - Key West

Just listed by Preferred Properties, but not by me, 1109 Virginia Street in the Old Town area of Key West. This two bedroom/one bath home has vaulted ceiling in the combined living room and kitchen areas. French doors open out to the rear deck and pool. The place is cozy and comfy and is priced to sell at just $435,000. CLICK HERE to view the Key West Association of Realtors mls datasheet.

The listing Realtor describes the property this way:
"Charming conch home located in great neighborhood. One block from White Street, shopping and restaurants. Two bedroom / one bath home with nice front porch. Deep lot. Small pool."

The house is laid out different than the photo above would suggest. The main entry is located on the west side of the house mid-way between the main bedroom which is at the front of the house. The living area is at the rear. This layout is typical of many older homes that have had room re-assignments that place sleeping areas up front and save the money views of a pools and gardens for the living areas that are often relocated to the rear of homes.

The house has 720 sq ft of living space that sits on a 28' x 103' lot with mature trees at the rear. The main bedroom is quite large while the second bedroom is not so large. There is a second level loft which is not included in the square footage. The living space is quit comfortable as it now exists. The listing agent suggested that a new owner might be able to add a guest cottage at the very rear of the property. The foundation of an old out building remain in place just in a case a new owner might want to obtain permission to build a new structure.

 One of the nice features of this house is the large sunny deck and inviting pool. I think the house looks and functions great the way it currently sits. A new owner could always do some tweaking to make the place extra special, but the house really does not need any major work done to it.

If you are  a fitness freak or yoga fan, this is the area  for you.  There are several gyms and yoga studios within a couple of blocks walk.  The Atlantic Ocean is a few blocks to the south.  All of the hoopla of Duval Street is within a 7 to 10 minute walk.

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.
