"Fine example of Victorian Queen Anne architecture, built in the late 1800's, restored in 1993. Wide expansive porches wrap around the mansion overlooking a beautiful pool and tropical gardens. The 4,148 SF main house has a large central hallway, original 8 ft. pocket doors, 15 ft. ceilings, separate dining/living rooms and a large library with hand-crafted bookcases, 3bd/3ba, garage and gated parking. The guest house, the former carriage house, is 1,496 SF consisting of a 2bd/2ba guest apartment, personal gym, and pool side Florida room with bath. The estate was built by C.B. Pendleton in 1885. Mr. Pendleton was a prominent politician/newspaper editor and his home was considered one of the finest mansions in Key West in the late 1800's."
I dug into my old shoebox and found several old photos that show this house in yesteryear. Two aerial photos show the house when the house had a waterfront view of North Beach on what was then called Salt Pond Road. Many years later a local politico-developer filled in the beach and built condos. (Politicians always get to do things real people cannot do. It still happens today in Key West.) The Garrison Bight Marina is now located opposite this property.
