1433 Reynolds Street - Casa Marina Area - Key West

Just listed by Preferred Properties Key West, that's where I work but this is not my listing, 1433 Reynolds Street. This beautiful home is located a short two block walk from Higg's Beach and the great Atlantic Ocean. The Grand Dame of old Florida hotels, the Casa Marina, is located opposite and up one block.  The famous Reynolds house is located next door to the south. If your house hunt requires a superior location, a bit of history, and a beautiful home that is ready to move in to, 1433 Reynolds St. may be the home you have been hoping to find.
According to the Monroe County Property Appraiser this home was built in 1928.  I dug into my old shoebox and found a photo of this home that was taken back in 1965, see the black and white photo above. Today the areas on either side of the original front door have been extended outward creating a cove-like entrance to the home. A white picket fence has been added as well as two Balinese doors that create a dramatic entrance to the yard.
This home has a semi-formal entry that leads to the living room on the right, the open kitchen and family room at the rear, or the main floor bedroom with en-suite bath to the left.
The master suite is on the second floor. It has a private balcony that overlooks the saltwater pool and spa below. An interior stairway leads to a third level office or artist loft that has its own private balcony offering a different view of the pool and poolside cottage below. Two other bedrooms and laundry complete the second floor. The front guest bedroom (used as an office) also has a private balcony.
Doors at the rear of the living area open out to the covered lanai. Adjacent doors open from the family room and dining area. The inside and outside flow seamlessly, especially in the fall and winter months when the Key West weather is magnificent.  CLICK HERE to view all the photos I took of this home.

I remember when this was on the market a few years ago. I loved the steps over the pool to the cottage.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

My photo
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.
