1305 Petronia Street - The Meadows Area - Key West

Sometimes when you see a house every few weeks you miss subtle little changes that occur as a homeowner paints his or her house or does some repairs to make the home look better. Sometimes when you don't see a house for several months you totally forget what a house looked like before some pretty substantial changes were made. I noticed some construction at 1305 Petronia Street back in 2010 and took a photo of the house as it looked then. Then I dug deep into the old shoebox and found a photo of the same house as it appeared in 1965 and another when the house was listed for sale a few years ago.  I took the photo above and the photo below (and others in today's blog) a few weeks ago.  
Today 1305 Petronia Street is better than ever and is offered for sale at $1,250,000. The totally revamped house now has 1437 sq ft of interior living space which includes gracious (but informal) living space on the main floor, main floor master bedroom with en-suite bath, two guest bedrooms and shared bath on the second floor, and seductive rear deck and garden, and off street parking.
If you are looking for a very attractive permanent home in Key West or a second home that is prime condition, please contact me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642 to show you 1305 Petronia Street.  I am a buyers agent and a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Key West.

Yikes! At $875 sq/ft. I don't believe the market has rebounded quite that much. And now with Bernanke giving a speech today, it just might get worse.

Hi Captain, I share your concern about the price per sq ft.

I always tell people not to be shy about looking at houses outside their comfort zone because asking prices are often much higher than selling prices. As a matter of fact, the average selling price in Key West is 92% of asking price.

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.
