916 Fleming Street ~ Old Town ~ Key West

I just did a price comparison among the fine large homes located on Fleming Street in Old Town Key West and learned that  916 Fleming Street is the least expensive on a price per square foot basis ($617.98 to be precise). Now since I have written about some of these other houses before I don't want today's blog to appear that I am disparaging any of those houses because I am not. But I am suggesting that a bargain shopper might want to do some comparison shopping. 

916 Fleming Street is located on millionaires row where you will find some of the finest homes in Old Town. This stately home has been dramatically renovated and has all of the amenities a discerning home buyer could ask for.
The Monroe County property records show the house was built in the 1930s but we all know the old court house burned down and the property records were destroyed. I found an old photo that says the house was built in the 1920s.  Like many of the older homes, 916 Fleming Street was substantially rebuilt and added onto. The most recent renovation expanded the size to 2637 sq ft. The house now has four bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two half baths. The house sits on a 3870 sq ft lot (43' x 90').  The house has a bricked off street parking space. Note the two story front porches which are great for people watching - the second most popular sport in Key West.
The home has a formal entry which leads to the open living area at the rear.  The house is designed for informal Key West living, but it still comes with lots of style and grace. The living area opens out to the outdoor living room which has a wonderful view of the pool and guest cottage.
The master suite takes up one half of the second floor and includes the bedroom with vaulted ceiling, dressing room, en-suite bath and walk-in closet.
There are two large guest bedrooms with en-suite baths on this floor as well. Also located on this floor is a large cedar lined closet and laundry closet. There is also access to the third floor via electric stairway access.
The main floor has a withdrawing room (a "man cave" for the more sophisticated gent) that is just awesome.
The pool has a seductive allure as do most pools in Key West. Except this one is part of an incredible property that can yours at the asking price of $1,650,000. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet for more particulars on this new listing.

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.
