1024 Southard Street Key West - A Really Sweet Dream Home

The newly listed home at 1024 Southard Street is as pretty and as charming on the inside as it is on the outside. The listing Realtor describes this 1530 sq ft two bedroom / two bath house as:
"Wonderful Old Town home on a beautiful block with a huge light filled great room that you will never want to leave! Eight French doors lead out to a heated salt generated pool with waterfall feature as well as a separate back yard garden & lounging area with a jacuzzi/spa. This artfully renovated home has 2BR/2BA + an office, stylish Ipe decking, outdoor shower, even gated & bricked off street parking!"
The central hallway leads past a home office on the left front and a guest bedroom opposite toward the great room in the rear. The painted Dade County Pine walls provide a subtle backdrop for the placement of art and furnishings. The deep cherry floors set a stark contrast to the crisp white baseboards, doors, and trim. Multiple sets of French doors add drama to the great room by providing garden and/or pool views from three different directions.
The kitchen is tucked off to the side. But it isn't small, just tucked.  There are ample food preparation areas in this kitchen as well as a nifty bar for informal dining.
A set of ancient glass doors at the main level shuts off the stairway to the second floor master suite from whatever is going on in the house. The master bedroom is the perfect nesting spot in this home. And the bathroom is quite large.
1024 Southard Street has bricked and gated off street parking - that is true rarity in Old Town.  The yards are handsomely landscaped and have nighttime illumination. The pool is large enough for a real pool party.  A hot tub is located at the rear side of the house where the current owner also has an outdoor dining area.  There is a place for everything in this house and everything is in its place.

This is the kind of place buyers dream of owning.  I know a lot of potential buyers think they may "need" more bedrooms for the time the relatives or friends come to town. There's a really charming guest house a block away. Think of putting up your once a year relatives in a guest house and save yourselves a couple of hundred thousand dollars.

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.
