1514 Petronia Street, Key West - Former Model Home at The Meadows of Key West

Just Listed by yours truly, 1514 Petronia Street, Key West. While this stunning home may look old, it is anything but old. Every detail of this former model home at The Meadows of Key West is done with style, function, and cost-saving ownership in mind.  The home was built new in 2008 and offers 1717 sq ft of luxurious living behind a white picket fence on a street of beautiful homes.  No need to worry about the neighbors on this block. The Garrison Bight Marina is just a stone's throw to the east - it can even be seen from the master bedroom. Old Town is within walking or biking distance.
The home at 1514 Petronia Street is part of The Meadows Condominium Association which is land based association comprised of eight homes. Each home is located on a fee simple lot. The association exists to provide access to rear carport parking via gated driveway and management of storm water runoff. Each homeowner pays his or her individual property insurance and maintenance expenses. (Wind insurance on this home is just $610 and Harzard is only $1207 because of the quality construction and materials used. Compare those rates to much smaller old houses or larger homes in our area.)
The homes were built with top of the line materials and craftsmanship. This home features soaring 11' ceilings in the living area and kitchen. The living area has an elegant coffered ceiling and built-in media center not available in other homes. The extra high base board and crown molding give this home extra pizazz. The kitchen has top of the line stainless steel appliances (including a full gas range not available in other units), beautiful granite and solid wood cabinets. A two story turret is an adjunct to the kitchen and is configured as a home office. There are lots of windows in the kitchen so your cooking will not be a chore but a dream. Look across the street to the three million dollar estate instead of looking toward a fixer-upper. There is also a wet bar in the living room. The floors on the first floor are travertine marble. The stairway and second floor bedrooms have wood floors. The master bedroom features a second turret which is a great place to relax and read a book or maybe to write one. The ceiling is vaulted so the master bedroom has an especially large feel, yet the turret makes the space so cozy. If you peer through the window to the east you have a partial water view of the Garrison Bight Marina. The master bath includes a double vanity, shower, Jacuzzi tub, separate water closet, and lots and lots of closets. The master bath is just opulent. I challenge you to find any more luxurious bath in Key West for less than $2 million. You won't find one.
Architectural details including crown molding, extra high baseboards, soaring ceilings, top of the line kitchen and bath cabinetry, the finest Kohler bath fixtures, two story porches and solid wood doors. All windows and doors are impact resistant. Hardiboard siding means the exterior is virtually maintenance free. Decorative shutters give the home character and provide filtered views from a couple of rooms. The wood doors on the first and second floor front are massive and of the highest quality. The 8' sliding doors that separate the living area from the pool are hurricane impact resistant to 155 mph that open wide to let the outside become part of the inside. A private gated driveway leads to the carport and a separate entry to the private pool and spa area. Each home is completely fenced and beautifully landscaped. This home is located on a corner lot so it has lots of separation from the other nearby homes. CLICK HERE to view more photos.
Eight foot tall glass doors open out to the sunny heated pool with waterfall and adjacent spa. A lush tropical garden flanks the house on the east side where the owner has installed a potting table. There is even a private outdoor shower hidden amid the flora and fauna.  The other side of the house contains a whole house generator and other mechanical equipment. The carport is accessed via gated private driveway. The carport area includes additional storage. There is a place for everything is this home as compared to some places where you may need to rent a storage locker.

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.
