1317-A Catherine Street - Key West, Florida

1317-A Catherine Street in Key West was recently listed by Preferred Properties Coastal Realty, Inc. That is where I work but this is not my listing. However, I had the opportunity to show this home several times over the past couple of weeks while the listing agent was out of town. The people that looked at this home really liked it. The listing Realtor describes the property this way:
"Great little 2/2 Conch cottage with a private pool, comfortable deck area and very lush privacy planting. Nice location for walking to the beach and the White Street restaurants and markets. Parking is on street but generally no problem. It was currently being used as a non-transient vacation rental and has a good history of rentals. Very private with almost no street visibility."
The side yard features a decent sized kidney shaped pool and deck. The grounds are illuminated at night. The south side of the house has an outdoor shower, laundry shed, and storage shed, none of which are visible from the pool or by passers-by on the street. In fact not much of anything about this house is visible from the street. This is not a drive-by listing. You must see the inside to appreciate the size and value of this property.

There home is attached to another unit which is owned by the same owner. There is a firewall between the two units. Each unit has a separate legal descripton  and each unit is owned in fee simple. This is not a condominium.  As the listing agent points out, there are two bedrooms, two baths, a large living area with high ceilings, a dining area with French doors that open out to the covered porch that overlooks the pool. The kitchen is spacious and nicely appointed. 
This home has a successful history as a vacation rental.   This home rented at $5700 per month during season and rents are lower rates during other times of the year. This property is offered at $629,000CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet and listing photos. Please call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642 to schedule a private showing.

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.
