812 Fleming Street #7 - Seafoam Condominium - Key West

If you are a single guy or gal with a de-cluttered lifestyle, the rear penthouse ("wink") at 812 Fleming Street #7 may just appeal to you. This compact 518 sq ft home offers the rich Dade County Pine walls, ceiling, and floor on the top floor of the Seafoam Condominium building. I have written about other units in previous blogs. All of those units faced Fleming Street and had balconies that overlook the gayest street in Key West. This unit is located on the rear side of the building and has a rear balcony that overlooks the pool.
There is a front and rear three story stairway with an open atrium leads to this third floor unit. In my opinion this entryway is one of the most beautiful entries I have seen in the United States. I am in awe of the simple but elegant architecture. Unlike the other units which I wrote about before that have two doors that enter onto the atrium hallway, Unit #7 has just one door. That door opens into an interior hall that leads to the kitchen and living room on the far side of the unit.
The bedroom is located just off the living room. I think a new owner might change the entrance from the living room to the hallway. That would create more wall space in the living room, provide more privacy in the bedroom, and potentially create more closet space as well.
You will notice that French doors open out to the rear balcony. What a great space this is. One of the reasons we live in Key West is to enjoy our great weather and outdoors. Imagine sitting on your own private balcony having morning coffee or dinner.  The community pool is located below. CLICK HERE to view more photos.

The monthly maintenance fee of $475 includes all building insurances, building and pool maintenance, plus sewer, water, trash removal, and propane. The building provides hot water for each. Hence, the condo association pays for water, sewer, and the propane to heat the water. That's right, propane. If you love cooking with gas, you're gonna get to do that here as this unit has a gas stove. There is a community coin operated laundry located off the pool.  
  812 Fleming Street is located hear everything.  The restaurants and attractions on Duval Street are located within a five minute walk.  Likewise, the Historic Key West Seaport is about a five minute walk as well. There are numerous neighborhood restaurants, two great bakeries, specialty shops and little art galleries withing a few blocks.  The good thing is that you can walk to just about wherever you want to go in Key West.
812 Fleming Street #7 is offered at $350,000.  Please call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642, to set up a personal showing of this interesting property.  I am a buyers agent and a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Coastal Realty, Inc. in Key West, Florida. This charming space could be your year around residence or a great place to escape.

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.
