1411 Olivia Street - The Meadows Area - Key West

Key West is known for its love affair with old houses.  Some places are big; some are small; some are ornate; some are droll; some are expensive; and most others are more expensive! Some homes are full time-residences and others are part-time places where owners hope to retire to in the not so distant future.  Some places are fixer-uppers and others are done to the hilt. Some places historic but a few places are relatively new. It is, however, the older homes that most would-be new buyers seek. The home located at 1411 Olivia Street in Key West is listed by Preferred Properties Key West, that's where I work but this is not my listing.  The listing Realtor describes this home thus:
"This charming Key West home is located in the Meadows area of old town. A vintage iron gate and a wide, sunny front porch offer a welcome entry to the house. Inside are beautiful wood floors, high ceilings and bright rooms. In addition to the two bedrooms and two baths, there are two loft bedrooms not included in the square footage. The Florida room opens through a wall of glass doors to the bricked patio and garden which includes an outdoor shower. The patio area is fenced and gated and very private. This is a must see for those wanting historic charm in a lovely setting."

 I found this black and white photo below (taken in 1965) that has the notation the house was built circa 1926.  I looked in the Sanborn Fire Maps which show the house existed in 1912. The prior Sanborn Map was done in 1899 which suggests the house was built sometime between those years.
The house has 1334 sq ft of living space on one floor which includes two bedrooms and two baths. The listing Realtor notes the house has additional living space in the second floor loft which is not counted as actual living area. 
 1411 Olivia Street is offered at $629,000CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls database and listing photos. Then call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642 to schedule a private showing of this colorful Key West property.  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.
