Below are photos of properties that recently were completed, properties in the midst of renovation, and other projects that have just begun.
In 2010 a bank owned house at 1021 Fleming Street was listed for $321,750. There were ten cash offers higher than asking price. The house sold for $400,000 after only a few days on the market. Restoration took about two years. The house is now complete. Congratulations on an incredible job. This place is a show stopper!
I wrote several blogs on 1020 Southard Street when it was listed for sale. The house has one of the very best locations in Old Town. The house had a modest guest cottage and a good sized pool. And the lot included off street parking for two cars. The new owners demolished most of the original house except the front facade. New piers, super structure, framing, and roof have been installed. The re-imagined house is beginning to take shape.
|If you look carefully you will see that the entire back end of the house has been removed.|
901 Pearl Street is located in the Meadows Area just one block from Bayview Park. This property, a former bank owned CBS house with red clay tile roof, was not deemed a contributing structure under our historic guidelines and could be razed. As I understand it, the owners planned to salvage the house. As construction ensued it became apparent the cost to correct the spalling issue was more expensive than expected. The house was razed and the lot has been cleared. Let's see what happens next.
Before Key West got so fancy, many houses were pretty plain. The simple house at 610 Olivia Street was updated over the years and was most recently used as a "duplex" of sorts. Two doors on the front porch separated what were two living spaces. A new owner has undertaken a significant renovation of the property which is being incorporated into the substantially larger estate next door to the east.

Eliza Street near mid town home in the beginning stages of renovation.
Below is what once was 1119 Johnson Street, Casa Marina Area of Key West. The public record shows the new owner paid $1,300,000 for the house which was razed to make way for a new even more expensive contemporary residence.
The 1950s era CBS home at 1123 Von Phister Street (Casa Marina Area) has been razed as well. A new home will be built on this site.
1424 Grinnell Street in the Casa Marina Area is a different story. The owner has taken the 1963 CBS home to a totally different century in the stunning renovation that is nearing completion. Once the privacy fence is finished, the pool and rear garden will be completed. More on this classy addition to the Casa Marina scene in an upcoming blog.
