801 Fleming Street - Key West

Two historic old houses located at 801 - 807 Fleming Street were recently updated with a contemporary twist. The resultant property boasts five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a stunning pool, and two separate living areas and separate kitchens. They are located on one of the very best blocks of Old Town Key West and are now offered for sale at only $1,695,000. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet and to see listing photos.
Preferred Properties Key West is the listing brokerage for this property. That is where I work, but this is not my listing. The listing Realtor describes 801 - 807 Fleming Street this way:
"TWO HOUSES IN OLD TOWN! This extensively renovated prime Old Town property consists of 2 historic homes that each have 2BR/1BA plus an apartment over the enclosed garage. Added features include a large pool with waterfall located between both homes along with outdoor shower, modernized bathrooms and stainless steel appliances. If people watching is your cup of tea, there are porches off each home that overlook the popular Fleming Street. Within walking distance to famed Duval Street, shops, restaurants, and bars."

801 Fleming St built circa 1889

807 Fleming Street built circa 1892

801 Fleming Street (top of the blog) is located at the corner of William and Fleming Street.  This house has two bedrooms on the main level, a living room that opens out to a decked area off the large pool. A large slider opens most of the room to the outside when weather permits.  A two story carriage house is located adjacent on William Street. The downstairs space is an air conditioned garage and laundry. The second floor is a large guest apartment with mini-bar.

807 Fleming Street looks like a super old fashioned cottage from the street. But when you pass the white picket fence and comfortable front porch that's perfect for people watching, you enter into a contemporary that offers two bedrooms with shared bath, a large living space, kitchen, and laundry.

 The two homes are unified into one large property by the extra large and quite stunning pool with raised edge that provides an unique place aside the pool.  The pool is framed by a large mosaic wall and fountain that provides privacy from passersby on Fleming Street.  The design and implementation are amazing. This concept works!
 I think this property will appeal to a buyer with considerable cash to invest in a second home that has the potential to be rented as a vacation rental. In fact, this home already has a track record as a vacation rental. There are only a few properties in Key West with five bedrooms - this is the only one with a huge pool, an air conditioned garage, and a killer location. This property would appeal to couples traveling together but who want their own separate quarters. It will also appeal to a couple with grown children or grandchildren who require separate spaces.  Nobody will feel slighted because both homes offer superior amenities and spaces. At the same time each home offers privacy. Even the occupant(s) of the carriage house will have privacy.

If you are looking for a large home in Key West that has the potential to be rented as a vacation rental, please contact me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642, to schedule a showing of 801 and 807 Fleming Street.  I am a buyers agent and a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Key West.

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.
