1117 Stump Lane - Key West - Just Listed!

 Just Listed by Preferred Properties Key West, that is where I work but this is not my listing, 1117 Stump Lane.  I wrote about this same property in November 2012 when it was offered for sale as a "fixer upper".  The house had been a home to a local family for generations.  It was sold and the new owner began an ambitious renovation of the house.  I toured the finished home last week.  I remembered the house as it was in 2012 (a relic with 1950s furniture and fixtures). Now it has sleek stainless steel appliances, new wood floors and  new everything throughout the house. A pool and deck replace the old (and odd) concrete back yard that was painted green - I kid you not. 

The entire house has been totally transformed from the way we lived our lives decades ago (heck, even over a century ago) to the way we live our lives today. The old living room was in the front of the house. Today that space is one of three new bedrooms with bath. The living area is now located at the rear of the house and is combined with the kitchen and dining space. French doors open out to the new pool and deck area where the old backyard had green painted concrete. Upstairs you will find two more bedrooms that share a bath. The front bedroom has a really nifty built-in bookcase with the perfect spot for a television.
The listing Realtor describes the property as an
"Outstanding rebuild of an Old Conch Style Home. Bright 3/3.5 on one of the most secluded tropical lanes in Old Town Key West. Located 2 blocks from the Historic Seaport and just 4 blocks from Duval street. Great open/dining/living space, gourmet kitchen with Wolf Range, all leading to the pool surrounded by a privacy wall. Master suite downstairs and two bedroom suites upstairs. Brazilian wood floors throughout and accented Dade County Pine walls. Spend lazy days on the covered front porch."

I saw the house on Sunday - they did a very nice job with the renovation. Seems to be very high quality. My wife and I almost bought this house the last go around just after Thanksgiving 2012 I think. They did not do the layout the way I would have but that is a stylistic point. I also think the pool is a little too large compared with the size of the back deck. A frequent issue in Key West.

Regardless of those nits, it is a very nice house.

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.
