1317 Catherine Street - Key West

1317 Catherine Street sits behind another house that faces Catherine Street. Were it not for today's blog, you might never know about this two bedroom two bath home even exists or that is offered for sale at $659,000. The features and price point of this property deserve a little more of your time. Please read on and then CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet. This property is currently used as a vacation rental.  The listing agent describes the property as a
 "Hidden gem just a short walk off White Street on Catherine. Well updated 2/2 with a heated pool and some very pleasant exterior space. Nice master with French doors opening onto the pool area."
While the covered porch has a door that enters directly into the living room, you are more than likely to enter the house via the kitchen door. It's less formal and more practical. The kitchen leads directly to the dining area which flows into the living room. A decent sized guest bedroom is located off the living room. That bedroom has a door that opens out to the deck that overlooks the pool. The master bedroom is located at the back of the house. The room runs the width of the house and like the guest bedroom this bedroom opens out to the swimming pool.
With the double doors in the master bedroom opened to the outside you not only have a beautiful view but you can also hear the sound of the water splashing into the swimming pool. Unlike parts of Old Town where you may hear the clang of a trolley or the ring-ring-ring of a bell, this part of Key West is tucked away just far enough to be near places of interest but your not amid all the hoopla. You can be there in a few minutes.  Heck, you can be anywhere in Key West is about five or six minutes unless town is crowded with tourists.
This house is designed for informal Key West living. Note that windows in the kitchen open out to a bar which provides covered outdoor dining space.  Adjacent to the covered porch is a stand alone cottage which is currently used just for storage. An outdoor shower is located next to the cottage. A new owner might find a more creative use of this attractive space. CLICK HERE to view more photos of this property.

This property does have a successful vacation rental history. However, a new owner could just as easily buy this home and keep it all to him or her self.  Not every buyer wants to share the sheets with strangers.  This home is priced at $659,000 and offers features that cost a lot more when the house is located in the heart of Old Town. 

If you are looking either for a personal residence or an investment property please call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642 to schedule a showing of this property.  I am a buyer's agent and a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Key West.

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.
