904 Washington Street - Casa Marina Area - Key West

I have previously written about 904 Washington Street which is located in the Casa Marina Area of Key West. The above aerial photo was taken in 1999. The hotel and grounds underwent a significant makeover a few years later. The Casa Marina Area itself has long been reason so many locals and potential buyers have elected to buy in this part of Key West as opposed to Old Town.  The proximity to the beach is obvious. But locals know that life in this area is a little more laid back and quieter than most parts of Old Town. Beside public tennis courts, the area has a wonderful new playground for children and even segregated doggie parks based on size of one's pooch. There are bike lanes and jogging paths for those who want to keep fit. Most of the gyms in Key West are located within a few blocks of this area.

The listing Realtor describes 904 Washington Street this way:
" Located in the heart of Casa Marina, this meticulously renovated one-level Mediterranean home is a must see! High-end finishes abound. No detail overlooked. The outdoor living space is just what the discerning buyer envisions for an easy, yet sophisticated Key West lifestyle. This home is perfectly designed for entertaining. The den & 3rd bedroom convert nicely to a suite for your favorite guests. The upgrades are numerous: custom cabinets and built-ins in the kitchen and den, gourmet kitchen appliances, bedrooms with upscale ensuite bathrooms, newly resurfaced pool, freshly painted exterior and covered off-street parking."
904 Washington Street is will appeal to the buyer who seeks a large and elegantly designed home with three bedrooms and baths, a den, chef's kitchen, breakfast room, covered and open outdoor living areas, a wonderful pool, a rooftop deck, plus a gated courtyard entry and a carport. As I was writing that sentence, the phrase "country club casual" popped into my head.  Except we don't have a country club in Key West. But we do have a lot of casual living.  Here, however, casualness is taken to higher level.

Everything in this home reflects the owners sense of style and easy living. From the crown molding at ceiling to the Brazilian cherry floors, the home is gracious without being pretentious. Paladin windows are featured above the multiple sets of French doors on the front and rear of the home. When you walk into the formal entry your eyes are immediately drawn through the elegant living room to the sunny pool area beyond.

The chef's kitchen features Viking appliances and custom cabinetry topped with granite counter tops. A lovely breakfast room is located just off the kitchen. Sets of French doors open out to the pool or covered outdoor dining area from there.

The master bedroom is located on the east side of the house. It, too, has French doors topped by paladin windows the look out to the pool. Imagine opening the door and jumping into the heated pool for a quick dip to end your day in Paradise. Two more bedrooms (with private baths) complete the sleeping areas. There is a den up front which has a view of the front courtyard.

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.
