The charming two story home at 923 Angela Street has a semi-formal entry which leads to the main floor living and master bedroom area or which takes you to the second level bedroom and rear sun deck.
The master bedroom and only bath are located on the main level. The master bedroom has French doors that open out to a large covered rear lanai and the rear garden.
After receiving many inquiries from prospective purchasers about the feasibility of adding a pool to the rear yard, the listing Realtor contact a local swimming pool contract who offered two different scenarios for adding a pool. The first involved opening the existing (but not functioning) cistern that is shared with a the property next door to the west. Then the contractor would construct a barrier at the property line and fill in the cistern on the neighboring property and finally extend the cistern in a diagonal direction to create a small dip pool. The second scenario would require the new owner to relocate the air conditioner from ground level to the second floor rear deck. That would open a large rear area where a new pool could be added. Set backs throughout Key West require at least five feet from the side and rear property lines. It appeared to me that this property would have adequate space to construct a fair sized pool if the second scenario were chose.
The second bedroom is located on the top floor. The front part has a view of the Key West cemetery while the back side has a small window/door that opens out to the rear rooftop deck where an owner could certainly get an enviable all-over Key West tan. (This is the same area where a re-located air conditioner might be relocated if a larger pool were added.)

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.
