Key West Home Buy Christmas - 923 Angela Street - Old Town

Just listed, but not by me, 923 Angela Street in the Old Town area of Key West.  The listing agent describes this lovely property this way:
"Classic Keys Cottage on a quiet Old Town Lane. Perfect porch for sunset views and peaks of local color. Traditional Conch style casual with Dade County Pine, wood flooring, lots of natural sunlight and just the right amount of outdoor space to enjoy gardening or doing absolutely nothing. One bedroom, one bath on main floor. Den/Office/Guest Room on the second level with small balcony and amazing views."

I dug into the old shoe box and found the above black and white photo of 923 Angela Street that was taken in 1965. The note on the photos says this house was built in the 1920s. Compare the old facade with the picture I took last weekend, below.

I got to show this house last week. It shows great. The front entry is a small vestibule which opens into the living room on the right or the stairway to the second floor.

This home has 1254 sq ft of living space divided between the main floor and second floor (which is a bit smaller in size).  The kitchen is located just off the living room.

 The main bedroom and only bath are located at the back of the first floor. A covered veranda and deck are located at the rear of the property. 

Upstairs you will find a nice sunny room with windows that look south toward the Key West cemetery and dormers at the rear which add to the interior space.  There is also access to a small rooftop rear area.

 923 Angela Street is located across from the Key West cemetery on Angela Street which is a one-way lane (only about 10 feet wide) which runs from Frances Street at the east to Margaret Street at the west. Traffic is very limited and you won't have a Conch train or trolley bus going past your house with loudspeaker telling tales throughout the day. The neighborhood is mostly "locals" and no commercial or apartments, there should not be much competition for on street parking. Duval Street is about a five to seven minute walk as is the Historic Key West Seaport.

923 Angela Street is offered at $649,000. CLICK HERE to view the Key West Association of Realtors mls datasheet.  And CLICK HERE to view a slideshow of additional photos I took of this home.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

My photo
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.
