606 Truman Avenue No. 1 - Windward Park - Key West


Preferred Properties Key West (that's where I work but this is not my listing) is the listing brokerage for 606 Truman Avenue #1 a sharp 2/2 Windward Park town home which is offered at  just $729,000.  The home offers 1260 sq ft of living space divided between the two floors with two master suites.

The listing Realtor describes Unit #1 this way:
"Delightful two bedroom two bath townhouse in a well-sought out Old Town compound, Windward Park. Unit 1 is tucked away in the front corner of the complex, therefore somewhat removed and most private. Enter into a large great room with two-story cat walk. Great for displaying treasured art. The new kitchen features high-end, custom cabinetry with unique counter tops and new appliances. The downstairs bedroom with adjoining bath has French doors leading out to a very secluded deck with beautiful tropical plantings and a hot tub. The upstairs features the master bedroom with en suite bath, as well as a second-floor porch that offers private, treetop views of the pool (heated in Winter) and well-manicured tropical gardens of the complex."
The main living area with the second floor "catwalk" can bee seen in a couple of other units at Windward Park but not all. The catwalk certainly adds dramatic flair to the living space where the ceiling soars two stories.  Otherwise, the main floor is laid out traditionally with the living room and dining area at front followed by a guest bedroom at the rear. There is a main floor bathroom with access off either the living area or from the bedroom. French doors open from the living space out to a spacious deck which includes a private hot tub. (Not all units have this feature.)
If you have looked at houses in Key West before you have probably found that many bedrooms are rather small and often dark. Not so here. The second floor master bedroom is extra large.  If you prefer sleeping in a king size bed, you will have room to spare in this big boy bedroom that has windows that face the east, south, and west (although the light here is filtered by the second floor covered porch) . The closet is equally extra large. The en-suite bath is located at the rear and has a window that overlooks the garden of St. Mary's of the Sea Basilica.  The first floor bedroom is quite large and has plenty of room in case you find using a stairway a bit challenging.

The second floor front porch provides an enviable view of the pool that is shared with only 12 other units.  Compare this property to some similarly priced units in Truman Annex where the pools are shared by potentially shared by hundreds of units.  I am not being negative on Truman Annex, but you will likely to have to pay more money to have fewer potential people sharing your pool if you live there.  CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet and to view all listing photos.
Readers not totally familiar with the location may be aided by who the nearby neighbors are including the aforementioned St. Mary's of the Sea Basilica (Truman at Windsor Lane), Better Than Sex (desert restaurant at Truman and Simonton), Moped Hospital (also at Truman and Simonton),  and Denny's (located one block away at the corner of Truman at Duval Street).  Many of the gyms and yoga studios are located nearby as well. I mention the neighbors because many popular tourist attractions which are within easy walking distance.  Unit #1 is currently used as a private residence but a new owner could easily rent the unit as a Key West monthly vacation rental. Several, but not all, residences at Windward Park are rented.

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.
