"Wonderfully renovated Conch house in the historic district. Bright and airy with cathedral ceilings and lots of windows. Beautiful wood floors through out. Great room addition on the rear opens to a peaceful covered deck, garden and outdoor shower. Kitchen has travertine floors and Silestone counters. The yard has automatic sprinklers and low voltage landscape light system, plus room for a pool. Plans on file. The new addition has impact windows and hurricane shutters for all other windows.Renovation earned the Florida Historic Star of Excellence Award. X flood zone!"
This 1223 sq ft home sits on a 3679 (45' x 81.75') corner lot just one block east of White Street. The house is a traditional "cigar maker cottage" or "shotgun house" layout that has been modified by the new addition to the rear where there is now an office and new great room comprised of an open kitchen, living room, dining alcove, and laundry room. The living room ceiling soars and provides abundant light into the living areas.
So many times buyers feel they have to "settle for less" than they want when they purchase a home in Key West or they buy something they must spend additional money on to fix or make the house better. This place needs nothing. Even though the renovations are nine years old, everything looks crisp and clean. Nothing is "dated". The only thing a new owner might choose to do is add a pool. Architect drawn site plans exist for a 20' x 7' pool that could be located at the rear just off the existing covered rear porch and west of the small utility cottage and storage room.
