The newly listed Bank Owned property at 1433 Flagler Avenue in Key West
is most certainly something to cheer about, especially if you are a
current Key West family looking for a place that has four bedrooms,
lots of quality living space, a pool, a great enclosed yard, and is in move-in condition. I was totally surprised by how nice this place looks.
The original house was built in 1953 and has been updated a couple of times in recent years. The current owner has added impact windows and doors,
painted and cleaned the inside and outside, added the necessary child
safety fence surround by the pool, installed a new fence around the
front, and replaced a substantial amount of the roof. The Monroe County
Property Appraiser shows this house as having 1730 sq ft of
living space under air. (I suspect the actually living area may be
larger, but that is only my opinion. A measured appraisal or survey will
confirm.) The lot is 83 x 93' or 7473 sq ft.
interiors are all fresh and contemporary. New light fixtures and fans
plus updated built-in closet systems, valances over windows, travertine
marble floors, and crisp and clean interior paint treatments give this
home a stylish look. Unlike a lot of houses that have been updated, this
place actually looks good. Too often updates are second rate. This
house looks like it could actually work for a family.
are two living areas which include the informal living room and the
family room. The kitchen and dining area are open. There is an
attractive passage way between the kitchen and family room which
provides views of both living areas so the cook can keep an eye of what
the kids are doing in both parts of the house at the same time.
There are three good sized bedrooms located at the front of the house. They share a single updated bath.
master bedroom is located in an addition at the rear. The master
bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and multiple sets of French doors that
open out to the rear deck and garden area. This space is just great.
Mom and Dad can have some really nice personal space located just far
enough away from the kids but not so far as to be out of ear-range.
on the far side of the family room is an area I dubbed as the playroom
or office. This is a nice sized area on the main floor over which there
is a delightful guest bedroom with a Romeo and Juliet balcony that
overlooks the rear garden at the rear and the pool at the front. (With
views like this, your guests will never leave.)
This bank owned family home is offered at just $549,000
or only $317 per sq ft. That is a lot of quality house in a very good
neighborhood within a few walks walking distance to Higg's Beach. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls data sheet. AndCLICK HEREto view a slide show of photos I took of this attractive property.

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.
