The listing Realtor describes the wood frame Conch house at 1410 Angela Street this way:
"Ideal location in The Meadows neighborhood of Old Town Key West. This newly improved home features 4 bedrooms, two bathrooms, bonus room for an office in the master bedroom, in ground pool, detached utility room with laundry, two zone central a/c & heat, fenced yard, and off street parking. French doors from the master bedroom and second bedroom open up to the private pool. The original house is a 2/1 Conch Cottage that was expanded in 1998 with a 2/1 CBS addition. This expansion can be setup as a lockout, great for a mother-in-law unit or guest quarters. This home sets back from the street on a large 4,624 sqft lot landscaped with mature tropical trees adding comfort and privacy for your enjoyment in OLD TOWN KEY WEST STYLE."
This house is a Conch style (simple one storey wood frame construction) which was expanded with a large 'mother in law' addition. The mls listing shows the property as having four bedrooms which would be correct if the living room in the mother in law unit were used as a bedroom. An interior doorway still separates (or could reconnect) the main living area from the mother in law unit. The interior of the original house is more typical of homes up north in mid-America than potential second home buyers for Key West cottages expect. The mother in law unit has vaulted ceiling that adds space and volume but also takes away a bit of privacy.
The the three big selling features of this property are the size of the home, the lovely yard, and the beautiful pool. I think a new owner might want to remove the current stucco exterior and replace it with a more correct wood siding. There aren't many houses in the Old Town or Meadows area with four bedrooms, especially nice homes with a pool and off street parking that are priced as affordably as this one. A new owner might redo the rear deck and pool by converting an existing shed into a pool bar. It's not that the place as it exists is 'wrong'. It just isn't as good as it could be.
