Three words in his description really stand out: wonderful, location, and flavor (of Key West). I know I sometimes get a little gushy about some houses and let the superlatives fly. This property does that to me - big time. To say this house is wonderful is an understatement. It is the embodiment of what makes Old Town Key West so special. We have a treasure trove of wonderful old homes confined to few blocks on an island out in the middle of the ocean. You just don't get in the car and drive to Key West in an hour or so. The drive from Miami, our nearest big neighbor, takes about three hours on a good day. For most people getting here involves booking a flight that takes several hours. Some adventurous souls take the ferry. The time it takes to get here is worth it. It lets you decompress from whence you came and prepare yourself for what lays ahead.
I checked the Sanborn Fire Maps of Key West and learned that 622 Grinnell Street appeared for the first time in the 1892 edition. It could have built several years,for some strange reason, that block of Grinnell Street was omitted in the 1889 edition. Whatever the case, we know the house existed by 1892. I found a photo of the property that was taken in 1965. Compare that black and white photo to a photo I recently took.
