44 Kingfisher Lane - Key West - Bank Owned

Just Listed - 44 Kingfisher Lane, Key West.  This 780 sq ft two story cottage two bedroom cottage is ready for immediate occupancy.  This BANK OWNED property surprised me with all of the upgrades it has including first floor travertine marble floors, crown molding, and custom cabinets in the kitchen and living room. There are new impact wind resistant windows throughout the house. The exterior Hardiboard siding helps make this a home-safe-home and a place that will be less expensive to insure year over year.  Whats-more the house is nestled away at the far back side of the Kingfisher Lane cul de sac at the Key West Golf Club Community. The house is located out of view but just to the right side as viewed in the aerial photo below.
When I stepped inside the front door of this new listing I immediately knew the home had been lovingly maintained by the former owner. Everything was and is first rate in this place.  All of the homes are laid out pretty much the same. You enter into the home with the kitchen on one side and the stairway to the second floor opposite the entry door. The living area is located at the rear where French doors open out to the rear deck. A half-bath is located under the stairway. This home has a bonus feature of built in storage under the stairs plus custom cabinets in the living area.
There are two bedrooms on the second floor each of which has a vaulted ceiling.  The front bedroom has a laundry closet (pictured below). The master bedroom has built-in chest of drawers. The four windows in the master bedroom give this space the feel of being in a tree house that overlooks the fourth hole at the golf course. I snapped a photo of the golf course shortly after a brief rainstorm.
Besides making windstorm insurance rates much more affordable, wind impact resistant windows and glass panel doors do not require a handyman to button them up in the event of a storm. And they always allow the owner to look outside and see what's going on instead of having to peek through openings in shutters.  CLICK HERE to view more photos I took of 44 Kingfisher Lane.
 The Key West Golf Club Community has two pools, a fitness center, and block after block of beautifully maintained homes many of which overlook some part of the golf course or the interior gardens within the development. The golf course is public so no membership is required. In less than two months homeowners here will start to decorate their homes for Christmas. This place always looks great during the holidays. I've had several potential buyers say something like "I don't play golf." Well, you don't need to play golf to enjoy the views and live the near country club lifestyle at one of the most affordable prices in Key West based on a price per sq ft basis. 44 Kingfisher Lane is offered at just $319,900 or $410 per sq ft.

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.
