1221 #A Grinnell Street - Grinnell Gardens - Key West - Price Reduction

The asking prince on 1221 Grinnell Street # A, in the Grinnell Gardens gated community was just reduced to $710,000.

1221 Grinnell Street # A is a 1369 Sq Ft  single family two story revival (Conch house) offered at $720,000 or $522 per sq ft. The home sits on a fee simple lot of 1769 sq ft. The home, built in 1990, is wood frame construction with traditional wood siding and metal roof. Wood storm shutters flank the front, side, and rear of the house. The main floor has a traditional home look with modern combined living, dining, and kitchen areas. A large built-in bookcase dominates one wall in the living room. A small alcove off the living room leads to the main floor guest bath and a storage closet. French doors at the end of the dining area open out to the private rear courtyard which faces to the south.  A side gate opens to the designated off street parking space. There is an outdoor shower and laundry on the opposite side of the rear courtyard.
All three bedrooms are located on the second floor. The master bedroom with en-suite bath is located at the front of the house. The room is quite large. A door opens onto the second floor covered balcony which overlooks the pool. The are two guest bedrooms which share the hallway bath.  One bedroom is fairly good sized while the third works well with a single bed and a small dresser.  Bunk beds or a crib would work just fine in this space. The second floor space is just a bit larger than a two bedroom Shipyard condominium unit. If size matters to you, bigger may be better.
Three of town homes in the Grinnell Gardens complex have private pools. The remaining four homes share the heated community pool and large outdoor space. The common areas include the lush gardens and off street parking area.The monthly HOA fee is just $170. As a home owner, you would be responsible for all building insurances and maintenance on your individual home. Remember, this property is owned in fee simple - just like a traditional home.
The Casa Marina area and beaches are located about six blocks to the south. Duval Street is a five block walk to the west. The shops, gyms, yoga studios, and neighborhood restaurants in the Arts District (vicinity of White and Truman) are a five minute walk to the north. This property might work as a vacation rental. The location and sunny pool will surely appeal to returning guests.   CLICK HERE to view more photos of this property.

You should blog about the new guest house listing on Von Phister. If anyone knows the Casa Marina area and guest houses it's you!

The place seems unique and interesting.

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.
