617 Fleming Street #9 Key West - Just Listed

Just Listed by Preferred Properties Key West, 617 Fleming Street #9. This Eyebrow Cottage dates back to around 1890, but it just nearing completion of a new interior restoration that adds current designer touches plus updates that include all new A/C (with heat), plumbing fixtures, and so on. What's more, this cottage is situated of the Campbell Courtyard Condominiums which means you can lock and leave this little home and go back up north knowing that your property will be well cared for. There are just nine units at Campbell Courtyard, some of which are rented as vacation rentals. Unit #9 is just one of five units that have private off street parking.
The original eyebrow house sits deep inside the long lot that is 617 Fleming Street. I dug into the hold shoebox and found a photo the the eyebrow house taken nearly 50 years ago. Compare the look back then with the way it looks in 2014 - nearly the same. 
The interior of unit #9 is nearly complete. When finished the two story two bedroom two bath unit will have new porcelain tile floors throughout. The living room has a new SOMY Bravia TV built into one wall. Crown molding and new baseboards have been added to this area.
The kitchen is getting a total over-haul as well. New Martha Stewart Cabinets have been added to the kitchen and both bathrooms. Quartz solid surfaces have been added to the kitchen and bathrooms. Stainless steel appliances including a counter depth French refrigerator will give the completed kitchen a look that is sleek and refined. There's even room for a dining set in the kitchen.
The downstairs bedroom has been updated with the addition of a drama wall which will be whitewashed and sealed. The wall has ground level and mid-level electric outlets and cable tv outlets. French doors open out to the private rear deck. The main floor bath was totally renovated with the addition of tiled shower with glass shower doors, Martha Steward Cabinets and quartz solid surfaces.
The second floor bedroom has been reconfigured to provide more bedroom space and enlarge the bathroom where the shower has been rebuilt as well. Here, too, double glass shower doors will be added to the space. Martha Stewart cabinets up here as well.

 If you buy this sweet newly renovated eyebrow cottage you can sit on your front porch and look out to beautiful courtyard and serene pool. You can walk a little over one block to enjoy the great restaurants and hotspots people from all over the world come to enjoy. For you, it's home. For them, it's a dream vacation.

Curious--if this is #9, why does it have the #8 next to the door?

There are two units in the eyebrow cottage. Both front doors open onto the shared front porch. The front door to #9 is barely visible through the tropical foliage.

Unit 8 is the left or west half of the downstairs. Unit 9 is the right or east side. Unit 9 has the entire upstairs area as well.

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.
