1211 Margaret Street - Key West Home For Sale

If you want to find a new permanent home in Key West or if you are looking for a special getaway retreat that has all the bells and whistles, the totally renovated home at 1211 Margaret Street may be the place you have been searching to find. The original home has been updated and expanded to 2100 sq ft of quality living space located on two floors (plus the detached pool house). The property as a whole has four bedrooms and three and one-half baths. The asking price is $1,099,000
The listing Realtor describes the home thus:
"Seductive renovation of a classic historic 4 bedroom single family home. Highest quality materials were used in transforming this home to a bright, cheerful and spacious residence. High ceilings, marble countertops, stainless steel appliances and luxurious chef's kitchen. Open floor plan with 2 bedrooms downstairs and large master suite upstairs and an adorable 1/1 guest cottage. Recently painted in bright tropical colors this home evokes happiness and warmth when you enter. Elegant wood floors, crown molding and contemporary bathrooms. Spacious outside deck of Ipe wood with lush tropical landscape and swimming pool. Coveted off-street parking for 2 cars. Located in a quiet, hidden Old Town neighborhood. A Renovated Old Town Treasure."

This home is cleverly laid out such that two of the bedrooms which are located on the first floor just don't seem to appear to bedrooms. The open kitchen is quite inviting. Here the chef will be a part of the action as there is no place to hide. There is, however, plenty of cabinetry and counter-tops. A breakfast bar will be a great gathering spot for family and friends. There is also a formal dining area when the need arises. The stairway to the second floor master suite is located at the rear of the new addition opposite the dining area which opens out to the pool and deck area.
The master bedroom is extra large as compared to many Old Town homes. The bedroom has nice sitting area and a second floor deck that looks down to the pool below.
The nice thing about having a guest cottage like the one shown above is the fact that your guests can have lots of privacy. They'll probably never want to leave! :)

1211 Margaret Street is located just four blocks from such upper Duval spots such as LaTeDa, Banana Cafe, Gingerbread Square Gallery, and the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory.  South Beach is a couple of blocks further south. I think this home could effectively  function as a vacation rental.

Beautiful large house (for key west) at a nice price point. The location is pretty good but not ideal. The current owners have nicely cleaned up a former short sale so that it sparkles. It will be interesting to see what the selling price for this lovely home will be. It will say a lot about how the Key West real estate market has improved over the past year or two.

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.
