I have written abut the guest cottage several times before it became a part of this larger property. At one time I wrote "t really is one of my very favorite homes in Old Town. There is something so quaint, so cool, so unassuming, and so welcoming that just about anyone will feel at home. The house is nested under some very large trees that give it a protected feeling. It is located on a quiet lane removed from the hubbub of Key West and yet it near everything." I recently got to take a peak at the newly updated cottage. I fell in love again with this quaint space. Below are some sample photos that show how inviting a small space can be.
Ample gated off street parking is another reason to consider this property.
I am troubled as to how to describe the main house because it has so many facets that make it so appealing. There are both very comfortable indoor living spaces and equally inviting outdoor spaces. For the most part the indoor spaces offer picturesque window views of the gardens or pool or the rooms actually open to the outdoor living areas. The indoors and outdoors merge into unique Key Westy environments when the mix is done right. It is done right here.
811 - 814 Carey Lane has combined interior living spaces of 2639 sq ft that sit upon a 9179 sq ft site hidden away from the rest of the world.
