Just listed by Preferred Properties, that's where I work but this is not my listing, 906 Johnson Street in the Casa Marina Area of Key West. The listing Realtor describes the property as:
"Outstanding Grand Key West home located in the heart of the Casa Marina, just 2 blocks from the Ocean. Truly a residential masterpiece with 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths in the main home including a ground floor mother-in law suite,laundry room, guest cottage with a mini kitchen, Man cave or studio and a workshop. The outdoor living space includes built-in grill, very large L shaped heated pool, 1/2 bath, outdoor shower surrounded by Mexican tile, tropical landscaping, lighting and irrigation. Privacy fence surrounds this outstanding property. Must be seen to be appreciated."
Grand would be an appropriate modifier as this home is grand in size, design, and prominence on a block of equally important large homes. As is the case of many homes in the Casa Marina Area, this home sits behind a tall privacy fence which gives the property a very real sense of privacy. Upon entering the property you are taken by the quite large front entry flanked by the alluring pool to the east and the garden to the west. Brick paths wrap around the house which lead to the various cottages at the rear.

The main house sits behind a private gated entry. Gardens surround the house on either side and then wrap around the house at the rear. The two story home has rich wood flooring and European details throughout. The main home includes three guest rooms, a complete mother-in-law suite or servant's quarters, a formal dining area, a formal living room with fireplace and an equally large and gracious family room that overlooks the rear gardens. The home has an extra large galley kitchen, a breakfast room that overlooks the large pool and outdoor kitchen on the east side of the property, and a cheerful laundry room that looks out onto the rear gardens as well.

This home is located just one half block east of the Casa Marina Resort and about two blocks north of Higg's Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. The three blocks of Johnson Street from White Street Reynolds Street might just be the most expensive stretch in all of Key West. If you think I am appealing to the snob, I am. People who spend a lot of money on a home want to make sure that the surrounding homes are equally valuable. They are in this area. A new owner might want to join the Casa Marina Club where you could use the gym, spa services, private beach, and get a discount on all food and beverage at the hotel.
906 Johnson Street is offered at $2,795,000.
