3B Nassau Lane, Key West, Florida - Just Listed

Just listed, but not by me, 3B Nassau Lane in Old Town Key West
3 Nassau Lane - Old Town Key West

The new listing at 3 B Nassau Lane in Old Town Key West ought to excite buyers who want an affordable single family house in a great location - the asking price is just $399,000. The listing Realtor describes the listing like this:
"The definition of Key Westy. Quaint, comfortable, in the most strategic location for one that wants to walk to all the good places. This home comes turn key, completely furnished and you'll agree it is fashionably impressive. Look no further."

I found the photo above taken in 1965 of 3B Nassau Lane.  I added an arrow to distinguish it from its neighbor, 3A.  A recent owner did significant renewal to this little gem. The house is move in ready.  All you have to do is bring your toothbrush because it is offered fully furnished as well.

I searched the historic Sanborn Fire Maps and learned that this house was in the 1892 edition and that Nassau Lane had been previously been called Cologne Lane. 
This comfy cottage home would make a great second home for a buyer that wants an inexpensive Key West getaway.  The cottage has been tweaked to near perfection. There is a welcoming front porch followed by the comfortable living area, kitchen and then the bedroom. This place has all of the creature comforts buyers expect neatly tucked into a compact space of 468 square feet. The outdoor area is just 20' x 48' (940 sq ft) which means there is just enough outdoor space to enjoy while you are here but not enough garden to cause you maintenance pains when you are back up north.

3B Nassau Lane is 'done', so a new owner can move in and not worry about having to renovate or spend more money.  Everything inside and outside looks pristine. Smaller homes are usually less expensive to maintain and to insure than larger properties. If you anticipate having a lot guests, there is a nearby guesthouse at the corner of Fleming Street. If you think about it, it would be cheaper to put your friends and relatives up in a guesthouse for a week than it would be to spend an extra couple of hundred thousand dollars to buy a place with a second bedroom for occasional use.

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.
