1108 Fleming Street, Key West, Florida - An Old Town Beauty

Just listed, but not by me, 1108 Fleming Street, Key West. This home is the model of what would-be buyers hope to find in an Old Town Key West home. The listing Realtor describes the home this way:
"Located in the heart of Old Town Key West sits this quintessential Key West cottage. The lovely front porch framed with bougainvillea creates a picturesque entry. Wood floors & painted wood walls grace this light filled three bedroom & three bath home. Offering a 1st floor bedroom & 2nd floor master suite with an office space. Not a detail has been missed in the open floor plan - even the poolside guest cottage is something out of Coastal Living magazine. Perfect indoor/outdoor living from the great room & kitchen out to the patio, heated pool & outdoor shower. The sunny patio & pool area are perfect for entertaining with a wet bar & space for dining and lounging. Bricked off-street parking off Curry Ln. in the rear of the home."

The house is bright and cheery from front to back and bottom to top. Every room is different, but the entire place flows evenly and with purpose. Three sets of French doors at the rear appear to extend the great room out to the pool, rear deck, and guest cottage beyond. There is also off street parking located behind the guest cottage.  The cottage is tiny but ever-so-cute.  There is an outdoor shower where guests can shower in the sunshine or under the moon glow. It's pure magic. Your guests will beg you to let them stay there. 
The house is laid out with one bedroom located at the front of the house on the main floor. Except for the elegant entry hall and stairway, the kitchen and living area comprise the balance of the first floor. The master bedroom has an adjacent sitting area or office. The second floor bedroom is filled with lots of built-ins. The listing Realtor states the house and cottage have a combined total of 1604 sq ft of living space under air. This beautiful home is now offered for sale at $1,300,000
Main Floor Bedroom
Three sets of French doors at the rear of the main house look out to the pool, deck, and guest cottage. While the space is compact, every inch of space is part of an aesthetic design that flows from the inside to the outside. All spaces are treated as each matters - and they do. Nothing has been left undone.

Duval Street is perhaps an 8 to 10 minute walk to Duval Street. Or you can walk to the Historic Seaport in about the same time. There are two neighborhood convenience stores on White Street. And there are numerous restaurants and cafes within a few minutes walk. Most of the gyms and yoga studios are located up near the corner of White at Truman - a five minute walk.

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.
