1119 Johnson Street in the Casa Marina - Key West

 Just listed, but not by me, 1119  Johnson Street in the Casa Marina Area of Key West. The listing Realtor describes this Key West property this way:
"This beautiful home is located on one of the widest and most desirable streets in the heart of the Casa Marina Neighborhood. The split-level home is perfect for entertaining with a large living room opening through multiple French doors to a stunning outdoor area with pool, modern kitchen with adjacent dining area and a spacious den opening out to a gracious 22' x 21' loggia. The second level has two guest bedrooms with shared bath and a nice master bedroom with private bath. The property is walled for privacy with a sunny 32' x 16' heated pool, beautiful coral stone water feature, meandering paths and covered parking."

 As the listing agent notes, this block is one of the most desirable locations in Key West. The three block stretch from White to Reynolds Streets hosts a limited number of larger homes situated on large lots. Some of the homes have expansive front yards while others are protected by large privacy fences. 1119 Johnson Street has the latter. When you pass through the gate you enter into the pool area which is located at the front of the property (the exact opposite of what you find in most of Old Town). The amazing blue pool takes your breath away with its simplicity.

Multiple French doors open from the living room out to the pool.  I've got to say my eyes were transfixed to the pool. So many people dream of owning a home in Key West with a pool. This property, Dear Reader, is a pool with a house.

Just a few feet away from the living room you will find the den, dining area,  and kitchen. A large covered loggia is located just off the den area and provide more than ample covered outdoor living and dining space. 

The house has 1992 sq ft of living area under air and sits on a very large lot (75' x 100' or 7500 sq ft). CLICK HERE  to view the Key West Association of Realtors mls datasheet on this home. This wonderful home is offered at $1,450,000.

I live in the Casa Marina Area and love it. Please call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642 to schedule a showing. I am a buyers agent and a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Key West.

Hi Gary,

Love your blog! What's up with all the homes on Johnson street coming up for sale at once?

Hi, I noticed it as well. Nothing going on that I know of.
There are also several houses on Eaton on or going on the market. It is a coincidence.

This is the home that I would die for. Very clean lines. Quite minimal. Better start saving up !

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.
