1101 17th Terrace - Key West - Bank Owned

Just listed, but not by me, 1101 17th Terrace which is located in the new town area of Key West. This three bedroom/two bath home is probably the cleanest and best maintained bank owned property I have seen in Key West.  As I walked thru this house taking photos, I could see the attention to detail the former owners put into this property.  It is comforting to believe that the former owners left this property with their heads held high knowing they left the home in near move-in condition.
The listing Realtor describes the home this way:
"Terrific opportunity to own a 3Br/2Bth home in New Town, Key West, FL. It has a nice sized living room, tiled floors, Florida room and, HUGE rear yard. You bet it has room for a pool, decking and more! Located close to shopping centers, professional offices, schools, restaurants, and more. Desirable family neighborhood with nice wide streets and well maintained homes with good curb appeal having grass and mature landscaping."
The photos below show the living area, kitchen and dining area, family room, master bedroom and bath, and two bedrooms with a shared bath.  All of the rooms are very well maintained. The tile floors are in really good condition. With a couple of minor exceptions, the walls and ceilings are in great condition.  The window in the living room will need replaced, but read on later about that.
The backyard is immense.  There is a screened-in patio plus a giant rear yard that has room for a huge pool.  It's funny that the back yard is mostly concrete and the front yard is so lush and green.  I think a new homeowner could have a wonderful time designing exactly the size and type of pool to add to this lot.  There's an existing little shed and even an old fashioned solar powered clothes line.  The house has off street parking to accommodate two cars.
Any purchaser ought to have a property inspected as part of the buying process. I noticed a couple of water stains on the interior ceiling and some of the fascia needs replaced.  All in all, I think a buyer looking for a family home in a really good Key West neighborhood ought to look at 1101 17th Terrace which is offered at $389,900 or $301 per sq ft for this 1296 sq ft home located on a 6,000 sq ft lot (60' X 100').

I took more photos of this home which you can see if you CLICK HERE. This property is one of the least expensive homes in Key West. It ought to sell quickly, especially given the clean condition.  Please call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642 to arrange a private showing.   I am a buyers agent and a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Key West.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

My photo
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.
