Located just east of the Casa Marina and perfectly situated near the White Street pier and the beaches you will find the new Preferred Properties listing at 1221 Johnson Street in Key West, Florida.
You enter the home through a formal entry. Just beyond the entry is a cloistered office with built-in bookcase. The office has this really sweet view of the courtyard with flowering bougainvillea trailing over the fence and babbling fountain below.
Off to the right is the master suite with a large bedroom area and doors that open out to the heated pool and spa area. There is a huge walk-in closet. When I snapped pics of the closet my mind realized that the room, like the other rooms throughout the house, has crown molding. And then I recalled that the former owner was a general contractor. I have found that people who buy a house actually owned and lived in by a contractor often get more house for the money because of all the details and superior workmanship that others have to pay a premium to get. As I made my way through the house I noticed numerous examples of quality finishes or details that I just did not anticipate at the price point of $1,195,000.
The living room, dining area, and kitchen occupy the center and rear portions of this home. Two banks of windows look out to the pool area which beckons you out to enjoy the Key West sun. And sun there is. There are enough palms and tropical foliage to make the pool appealing but not so much to make getting a tan impossible. Too many times pools are tiny or too shady. That is not the case here. There are areas where shade is available but there are abundant areas to really enjoy the sun. CLICK HERE to view lots of photos I took of this new property.
