620 Eaton Street - Old Town - Key West

Congrats are in order to Everett Watkins listing agent at Preferred Properties and to Phil and Terri Wilson (selling agents) at Preferred Properties on the sale of one of Key West's most prominent and historic homes, 620 Eaton Street which SOLD (closed) on December 7th for $3,199,000CLICK HERE for more info on this home.

This is a grand and gracious home that has dominated Eaton Street for decades.  The most recent owners did a splendid job in upgrading and maintaining one of Key West's most treasured homes. Below are some photos of the house through
the years.

 620 Eaton Street was built in 1885 and photographed here in 1900 

620 Eaton Street in 1911 when the property was known as the
 Key West Electric Company Bachelor's Quarters

620 Eaton Street in 1965

620 Eaton Street in the 1990's before restoration was undertaken

I moved to Key West in December 1993 and remember walking by this home many times and thinking to myself "Why doesn't somebody buy this place and fix it up?"  Somebody did and then sold it. The most recent owner improved on the prior restoration and has handed off the property to a new steward.  Maybe somebody will write a blog about this old girl in 2085.  I hope she will still be standing and that the other treasures of Old Key West are keeping her company. They, sadly, don't make them like this anymore.

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.
