Bank Owned - Key West - 3800 Duck Avenue

Buyers who are weary of the high priced houses in Key West may want to consider expanding their search criteria from Old Town to New Town; from totally prime to possibly sublime; from pricey per square foot to the least expensive house on a per square foot (or webbed foot) basis.  The Bank Owned house at 3800 Duck Avenue, Key West is offered for sale at just $364,000 or just $215 per square foot.
3800 Duck Avenue is located near the eastern end of the Island of Key West.  The house sits on a large fenced lot that measures 49' X 120' (5855 sq ft).  The house was built in 1958 and fits comfortably in the neighborhood where most of the original houses have been expanded. The Monroe County Property Appraiser shows this house as being 1688 sq ft which includes a small shed addition at the front and a large new great room addition at the rear. There's also an 80 sq ft storage at the back of the large fenced back yard.  
Three sets of French doors at the back of the great room open out to the quite large back yard where there is room for a large pool. The rear shed could be converted into a small cabana or maybe a girl's playhouse or a boy's fort. The backyard has an existing sliding gate as well. I think the backyard area offers endless possibilities for a new owner. 
A prior owner did some renovations to the original house. A new owner could work on and improve the prior owners attempt to upgrade the house. The house as currently configured has two bedrooms and one bath. There is the remnant of a second kitchen in the original part of the house as well.

This house would benefit from a thoughtful redesign of spaces in the original house. Walls could be moved to create better room usage and flow through the house.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

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.
