|415 Margaret St in 1979|
Roger Emmons at Truman and Company, the listing Realtor, describes his present perfect listing at 415 Margaret Street:
"This is one of those very special homes where all of the elements come together to create an incredible setting for the perfect Key West lifestyle. The home is a beautiful combination of historic restoration and superior renovation with a wonderful floor plan that includes three ensuite bedrooms including the master suite which is located in a private wing overlooking the landscaped gardens and 40 foot pool. At the rear of the property is a spacious guest cottage complete with living room, kitchen, bedroom and secluded hot tub. Thoughtful details include large shady porches, Chicago brick patios and pathways that meander through the tropically landscaped gardens. Very private with off-street parking."

Gracious Front Porch that Wraps Around the House
25 Foot Entry Hall that leads to the Family Room and Pool Beyond
The home was thoroughly renovated and expanded in 2000. A generous addition was built at the rear of the original house which included an expansive new master suite. A separate guest cottage with a mini-kitchen, living room with vaulted ceiling, bedroom and bath was built at the far rear of the lot. (The total lot size is quite large for Old Town - 56' frontage by 201' depth or 10,679 sq ft.) The present structures include multiple porches, loggias, two outdoor showers,a 40' heated swimming pool, and other amenities folks in the late 1800s would not have imagined. The result is gracious home which blends formal rooms from the past and new spaces designed for the indoor-outdoor Key West lifestyle.
