The listing Realtor describes this property as:
"High atop Solares hill and directly across from the sprawling grounds of the Historic Harris School, sits this classic conch cottage waiting for your personal touches. Currently comprised of two bedrooms and one bathroom, the home appears to have a solid structure with possible expansion of 2nd story over rear addition. Small private courtyard in the back. Property is just a couple of blocks from either Duval Street or the Historic Seaport in one of the most desirable areas of Old Town Key West." And then he adds: "there is an approximately 150 sq. ft. piece of land that has an easement for use by the current owner. If a buyer would like that land, they would need to negotiate a price with the neighbor, who is amenable to sell it."

This is a great Old Town location and this could be a great small project that could be done for a reasonable amount of money. I sold a nearby house a couple of years ago. The owner and I spoke after I took the photos. We were standing in front of his house when one neighbor passed and said hello and mentioned his name. Another neighbor arrived and there was a similar exchange. That's how life is in Key West, even on a street with lots of tourists, Old Town is after all a bunch of small neighborhoods where people like you and me live and revel in the joys of owning a home in Key West. And it is nice to know that no matter how many houses get updated, the old neighborhood stays pretty much the same over the years. The kids playing recess in the 1950s are planning to retire about now.
