1009 Eaton Street is a two bedroom/two bath Conch style home offered for sale by Preferred Properties Key West, that's where I work but this is not my listing. The Monroe County Property Appraiser says was the house was built in 1923. I think it is much older than that because I found it on the 1889 Sanborn Map. That would indicate it existed before 1889 when the map was drawn. Be that as it may, it is still an old house and that is why it is the type of property would-be second home buyers want in Key West. The cute part of this house is without dispute. The listing Realtor describes the property this way:
"Historic Cigar Cottage in the heart of Old Town Key West with the Seaport and some of our best restaurant's at your doorstep. Several years ago this home underwent a renovation and has an updated kitchen and 2 full baths, with preserved Dade County walls and floors. There are two bedrooms upstairs with a Jack n' Jill Bathroom. On the main level you have a open floor plan with French doors leading to the covered deck and spa."

The space is large enough. The cost might be a bit high as the pool would have to be dug by hand instead of machine. You could save yourself a lot of money and do what a lot of locals do: go to Dante's and use the pool there. Buy lunch and a couple of drinks. You will save thousands and thousands of dollars on construction costs and not have to pay for a pool service, chemicals, and electricity to run the pool everyday of the year.
