1513 Pine Street - Key West

I just listed 1513 Pine Street in Key West. While this stunning home may look old, it is anything but old. Every detail of this recently constructed home at The Meadows of Key West is done with style, function, and cost-saving ownership in mind.  The home was built new in 2008 and offers 1717 sq ft of luxurious living set behind a white picket fence on a street of beautiful homes.  The area is a mix of historic old homes as well as the eight homes built by the developer of The Meadows. The Garrison Bight Marina is just a stone's throw to the east. Old Town and the historic seaport are within easy walking or biking distance.
The home at 1513 Pine Street is part of The Meadows of Key West Condominium Association which is land based condominium association comprised of eight homes. Each home is located on a fee simple lot. The association exists to provide access to rear carport parking via gated driveway and management of storm water runoff basin (photos at the bottom of today's blog.) Each homeowner pays his or her individual property insurance and maintenance expenses. (Wind insurance on this home is just $2533. Flood insurance is only $750.)
The homes were built with top-of-the-line materials and craftsmanship. This home features soaring 11' ceilings in the living area and kitchen. The living area has an elegant built-in media center.  Custom wood trim, extra high base boards, and crown molding give this home extra pizazz. The kitchen features GE Monogram  steel appliances, beautiful granite counter-tops, and solid wood cabinets. A two story turret gives this home dramatic architectural flair on the outside. Inside, the ground level portion of the turret provides space as a home office. There are lots of windows in the kitchen so your cooking will not be a chore but a dream. There is also a wet bar and wine cooler in the living room.
The turret extends up to the master bedroom where it provides space to sit back and relax or read a good book or maybe to write one. The ceiling is vaulted so the master bedroom has an especially large feel, yet the turret makes the space seem so cozy. The master bath includes a double vanity with chic retro make-up lights on either side, Jacuzzi tub,  separate shower, separate water closet, and lots and lots of closets all joined together amid elegant tile and marble floors.
 Architectural details including crown molding, extra high baseboards, soaring ceilings, top of the line kitchen and bath cabinetry, the finest Kohler bath fixtures, two story porches and solid wood doors. All windows and doors are impact resistant. Hardiboard siding means the exterior is virtually maintenance free. Decorative shutters give the home character and provide filtered views from a couple of rooms. The wood doors on the first and second floor front are massive and of the highest quality. The 8' sliding doors that separate the living area from the pool are hurricane impact resistant to 155 mph that open wide to let the outside become part of the inside. A private gated driveway leads to the carport and a separate entry to the private pool and spa area. Each home is completely fenced and beautifully landscaped. This home is located on a corner lot so it has lots of separation from the other nearby homes.
I am really excited about this new listing. The housing and rental market in Key West is on fire. There is so much demand for so few houses. To have such a beautiful and well-built home for sale is a true privilege.  Please contact me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642 to schedule a private showing of this home.

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. 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.
