32 Seaside Drive - Bank Owned - Key West

 Just listed, but not by me, a sharp and ready to move three story Bank Owned property at 32 Seaside Drive in Key West, Florida.  The listing Realtor describes this 1824 sq ft townhome this way:
"Ready to move in! This townhouse comes with many upgrades; the designer 2 bedroom/2 and one half bath three level townhouse also has its own private elevator,custom built-ins, two car garage, hurricane protection doors/windows and a private roof top deck with water view of Key West's famous sunsets!"

The Seaside community is located on the far east side of Key West just off South Roosevelt Boulevard as it winds its way from US1 in a southwesterly direction around the Atlantic Ocean side of Key West.

This property has 1824 sq ft of living space on three levels. You will find the double garage, spacious laundry, and storage on the ground floor plus a screen enclosed patio with tile floor and an outdoor courtyard space which you might use as a private garden.

This unit is located near the far western side of this development so you would not likely hear much noise from South Roosevelt Blvd while on the balconies.  You cannot hear anything inside of the unit. There are dual balconies on the east and west side of this unit on the second and third floors. And then there is that private rooftop sundeck where only God and people in low flying airplanes can see you.

The master bedroom is located on the west side of the second floor. It is a very spacious room with a large closet and a very large en-suite master bath.  The master bedroom has a terrific balcony.  The second bedroom is on the east side and, like the master bedroom, has an en-suite bath (not as opulent, however) and its own balcony.

The kitchen is on the top level on the west side. It has a vaulted ceiling and sunset views. The kitchen is quiet large and has plenty of room for informal dining area.  There is also a pantry which has been outfitted with lots of storage options.

The living room is on he east side of the property and has partial views of the water to the east. Unfortunately, most of the views are of the trees that help buffer the development from the road. However, the living room has plenty to look at inside the room itself. There is a custom built-in media center (minus the media), but the space is very attractive nonetheless. This room has a coved ceiling which adds a bit of dramatic effect to the space.

The building is poured concrete construction and has Category 5 hurricane rated windows and doors. The building was built to the highest building code standards as of the date constructed which should result in less expensive insurance for wind, fire, and casualty coverage. The unit has an internal laundry shoot from each floor that ends on the ground level where the spacious laundry room is located. The unit has an individual elevator (which could work well when an owner reaches the age when stairs become a problem) plus internal stairway between each floor.

32 Seaside Drive is bank owned and offered at $449,000 or $246 per sq ft.  Value shoppers should compare this unit with more expensive units at President's Walk in the Truman Annex or some condo units at 1800 Atlantic Blvd which are a bit smaller in size.  CLICK HERE to view a slide show of more photos that depict this bank owned Key West property.

The common areas include private roads, parking, and a large sunny pool. All areas are meticulously maintained from what I can see (and have always been maintained that way).   The hoa fees are $622 per month and include building exterior maintenance, common area and pool maintenance, security and management.

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.
