826 Eaton Street - Old Town - Key West

Just listed, but not by me, 826 Eaton Street in Key West. This beautiful Old Town cottage is located just a little over one block from the Historic Key West Seaport and within walking distance to many of the quaint little places that make Key West so much fun.

The listing Realtor describes this 1344 sq ft home this way:
"Beautiful Key West cottage located in the heart of old town and just a short stroll to the Harbor and Duval Street. The first floor features 2 generous sized bedrooms, 2 baths and an open living/dining/kitchen with two sets of French doors opening to the pretty backyard with spacious deck for outdoor entertaining and heated pool with water feature. In addition there is a spiral staircase to a large loft which is the third bedroom with sitting/office area. The loft is finished to the same quality as the downstairs with hardwood floors and ample ceiling height. Lots of features today's buyer want are included: Wood floors throughout, Dade County pine walls, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, central air and outdoor shower."
 I found the above black and white photo of 826 Eaton Street with a note that says the original house was built circa 1874. Compare that to the color photo just above that was taken in 2013. The house looks pretty much the same except the house is now painted yellow, the old mail box has been replaced, and a huge frangipani is planted in the front yard. The inside has certainly been changed, however. The front two rooms are now bedrooms. The combined living room, dining area and kitchen are at the rear. There are two bathrooms on the main floor as well as the laundry area. Upstairs you will find a decent sized loft bedroom that comfortably accommodates two twin beds.

Two sets of French doors open from the living area out to the spacious pool. The pool is located near the rear of the lot and this provides ample outdoor space for sunning, socializing, and cooking on the grill. There is even an outdoor shower off to the side.CLICK HERE to see the Key West mls datasheet on this cute little cottage that is actively (and successfully) used as a vacation rental.

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.
