Bank Owned - Designer Home - 1103 Ashby Street - Key West

City is doing landscaping
 Just listed, but not by me, a Bank Owned property that was originally designed by the noted design team of Debra Yates and Raymond Jungles. (They were not the owners of this property when it was foreclosed.) The house is located at 1103 Ashby Street in the mid town area of Key West.

I have written about other houses the Yates-Jungles team designed. The homes I have written about previously (and this one) were previously owned houses which Debra Yates updated by using space, height, color, and contemporary structural and architectural elements to re-purpose the house. This particular house is like of many in this area. It is an 1116 sq ft three bedroom home that was built in 1955. It is located on a corner lot adjacent to our local middle school.  You can drive up and down the nearby streets and see dozens of similarly constructed and built homes that have been updated in the more than 50 years this subdivision was built. But you won't see any house like this. This is a one of kind.

 I have also written about Raymond Jungles who was the premier landscape architect in Key West until he left our area. He did the gardens and pools at the Marquesa Hotel and in some of the most expensive homes in Key West.  A home owner who gets a Raymond Jungles garden is getting a design worthy of note.

1103 Ashby Street is offered at $356,400 or $319 per sq ft.

I was there twice on Friday and the place was jammed with Realtors and buyers looking for a steal. Please contact me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642 or send me an email at I am a buyers agent and a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Coastal Realty, Inc.  Don't wait too long. You will be sorry.

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.
