607 Elizabeth Street - Old Town - Key West



Just listed by Preferred Properties Key West, that's where I work but this is not my listing, 607 Elizabeth Street.  The listing Realtor describes this cottage home as special and adds:
"Quaint cottage in perfect location in Old Town Key West. This two bedroom home has been updated. Private yard with lush gardens and small pool. Covered outdoor area provides for perfect Key West living. Both bedroom have attached bathrooms, plus an additional half bathroom. A very special home."
 I checked the old Sanborn fire maps and learned that 607 Elizabeth Street was located on the 1892 edition. That means the original house was built on or before 1892.  Today, the house looks as nice as about any cottage style home in Key West.  And we have some doozies. Compare the exterior as it appeared with a 1965 photo and how it looks today. I think you will agree that it looks great.
Today the home has two bedrooms, both of which have baths, plus a third potential bedroom and a separate half-bath. The combined living and dining area have vaulted ceilings and bright interiors that provide a more updated feel than you might be used to in some cottage style houses that can seem quite cramped.

 This home has 1400 sq ft of living space and sits atop Solares Hill - the highest point in Old Town Key West. Most of the neighboring homes are single family residences.  Some are very expensive homes and others, like this, are more moderately priced.

This home is offered at $695,000 or $496 per sq ft.  A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a similar home at 1101 Fleming Street. It sold in less than one week.  I think 607 Elizabeth Street will sell quickly as well. This home has the look and location buyers want. It has a small pool and easy access to all the places locals and vacation travelers want to go.  I think this home would make a wonderful vacation rental as well.

To see 607 Elizabeth Street or any other listing in Key West, please call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642.  I am a buyers agent and a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Key West.  Let me help you find your place in Paradise.

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.
