Just listed by Preferred Properties, that's where I work but this is not my listing, 622 Grinnell Street in Old Town Key West. I got a chance to accompany the listing agent yesterday afternoon and take photos of this glorious old home. I was totally taken by the charm of this house that has not seen the likes of granite or stainless steel. Consider the listing agent's description:
"Wonderful, original conch home with three legal units. Great location and superb street presence. Access to the rear cottage is from a lane.Possible conversion back to single family and would be a really spectacular property as such. Opportunity to work with a property that has been maintained while leaving a Key West flavor."
I dug down to the bottom of the old shoe box and found a photo that shows the exterior as it appeared in 1965. Compare that black and white photo with the photo beneath. The stately home with impressive second floor balcony still maintains its commanding view of the street"
The listing agent states that the property as a whole has 2740 sq ft of living space and sits on a 57' x 83' (4683 sq ft) lot. The house has not been touched in years and would benefit from a thorough renovation. But understand that the property is perfectly livable as is. I just think the highest and best use of this house is to take it back to single family. CLICK HERE to view a slideshow of photos of this property.
This block of Grinnell Street is one of the quietest blocks in Old Town and that is because it ends at Angela Street which is the northern border of the Key West cemetery. That means the Conch trains, trolleys, and Duck Tour vehicles will not be using this street and they cannot traverse Angela Street. Your life will be quieter because of this. You will still see tourists walking by or riding bikes.And you will see neighbors go across the street to use the Grinnell Street Pocket Park.
Five Brothers is located down the block at the corner of Southard Street. The Key West Historic Seaport is located three blocks further north and Duval Street is located five blocks to the west. Most of the gyms and yoga studios are located within a five to ten minute walk.
622 Grinnell Street is offered at $1,200,000. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls data sheet on this property.
