"Diamond in the Rough. This charming 2/1 home plus detached guest room is completely walled and gated for privacy. Features include a formal living room with vaulted ceiling and built-in cabinetry, kitchen with granite countertops & nice appliances, dining room with multiple French doors opening onto the beautiful private pool and patio. Off-street parking for two cars. This property has a compound like feel and offers enormous potential to become a real show place."
The updated main house with its lush garden and sunny pool sit behind a tall privacy wall surrounded by large palms and specimen trees. An electric gate opens to covered off street parking. A caretaker's cottage sits at the back of the property. The lot is quite large by Key West standards (60' x 120' or 7,369 sq ft).
The caretaker's cottage sits to the rear of the gated driveway and behind the covered off street parking. This is the part of the property that needs the most attention. The cottage is currently isolated apart from the main house by the privacy fence. I think a new owner might want to open the side by adding French doors, removing the fence, and incorporating the cottage into a share garden and pool space which would end the isolation and prettify the space at the same time.
The pool and gardens are pretty nifty as they sit. One potential buyer that I showed the house to suggested adding French doors from the living room out to the garden. That would replace the single multi-light door on the right side below with French doors. That would add more light into the living area and bring the outdoor area more inside the living area as well.
