1510 Patricia Street - Key West Mid-Century Home


 
 
 If you were a youngster in 1954, you may recall that Disneyland (the TV show), Lassie, Rin Tin Tin, and The Tonight Show debuted.  Movies released that year include White Christmas, Rear Window, On the Waterfront, and Dial M for Murder. Lord of the Flies, Horton Hears a Who, and The Lord of the Rings were published in 1954. Life back then was much simpler than it is today.  Most families had one TV set, a family car, a telephone with a rotary dial, and house with a single bathroom shared by all family members.
The home at 1510 Patricia Street in Key West was built in 1954. It is a 1278 sq ft ranch style home located on a 5547 sq ft lot with three bedrooms, one bath, an updated kitchen, and a combined living room and dining area with doors that open out to a Florida room with jalousie windows. There's even covered parking. All of the floors are original Cuban tiles and all are in great condition. The house has been well maintained for generations. The yard has lots of green grass and a couple of palms in front.  The view from the front looking across the street is great. The back yard has more grass, some  palms, and a large cottage.  There is more than enough room for a good sized pool.

I wish my dad had created those turquoise tiles. They can be found in bathrooms across North America.
I think the cottage would make a wonderful pool house, artist's studio, or writer's cottage.  The back yard has lots of potential. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet on this home which is offered at $479,900. This is an Estate Owned Property.

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.
