1410 Grinnell Street - Casa Marina Area - Key West - Short Sale

Just listed by Preferred Properties Key West, that's where I work but this is not my listing, 1410 Grinnell Street in the Casa Marina Area of Key West. This 1104 sq ft home is currently configured as a two bedroom home with a pool and off street parking. It is a Short Sale and is offered at $435,000 or $394 per sq ft for a great Casa Marina location.

The listing Realtor describes 1410 Grinnell Street thus:
"Great potential in Casa Marina neighborhood. Short sale listing in need of some TLC. CBS structure with good square footage. Former 3/2 converted to 2/2. New hurricane grade windows. Small pool in private back yard. Nice gardens and foliage surround the property. Not a drive by... once behind privacy fence great potential for the right Buyer."

The house was built in 1949. I found the black and white photo above that shows how it looked in 1965.  Just below is a photo of how it looks today.  The house sits on a 3572 sq ft lot (45' x 80'). The yard is now lush with trees and tropical foliage. The pool is in the rear. A new owner may want to clear out decades of vegetation and create new outdoor spaces. The house was originally a three bedroom. Two of the bedrooms at the rear were combined into a larger master suite. A new owner could convert the space back to three bedrooms but a new owner might want to do some significant changes to the property as well. Many of the homes in this area are much more expensive. This house sits on a small lot compared to most in the area. I think any money spent on improving this property would benefit a new owner in the years to come.

With the expenditure of some new money couple with some creativity and hard work, a new owner, maybe you, can give this Mid Century home a new lease on life.
Higg's Beach is a couple of blocks away

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.
