1017 Thomas Street, Key West - Just Listed

Just Listed, but not by me, 1017 Thomas Street which is located in the Bahama Village Area of Key West. The listing Realtor describes this charmer this way:
"Cozy, Charming and Completely renovated in 2014, this three bedroom, three bathroom cottage has seen a remarkable make-over. The third bedroom has access to small outside patio and would make a great den or office. Beautiful new kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances overlooks the living area. Off Street parking and just steps to the beach and Duval St. Perfect Key West Beach Cottage."
The black and white photo above was taken about fifty years ago. I know all things change over the years and many change for the worse. But if you ask me, this place looks so much better today than it did back then. In fact it looks much better today than it did a couple of years ago when it was first offered for sale.
This remodeled home offers sits on a 50' X 41.9' lot (2095 sf) lot with off street parking and a white picket fence. Once you pass the gate and step through the very low maintenance yard you arrive at the cute front porch. Note the unique wood shutters and contrast the blazing white of the house. This place is a standout! Once inside your eyes continue to be awed by the simplicity of design. Sometimes less is more and that is certainly the case here. The understated tones let this little home show off big time.
The cheerful front bedroom has an en-suite bath. Note the new wood floors that flow throughout the house.
The middle and rear bedrooms each have private baths as well. This owner is using the rear bedroom as an office. CLICK HERE to view more photos that I took of this cute cottage home.

This home is located two blocks from Duval Street, one block from Blue Heaven and other nearby eateries, and five minute block ride from Ft Zach Taylor Beach. Some day the city will eventually get the Truman Waterfront Park opened and darling little houses like this will have quick access to the waterfront as well. 
1017 Thomas Street is offered at $669,000. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet and to view listing photos. After you've looked at photos, please call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642 to set up a private showing. I am a buyers agent and a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Key West. Remember, there are only two shopping days until Christmas. Better move it and get this place before all the After Christmas Shoppers hit Key West. Our housing supply is very low. Cute little places like this will go flying off the shelf next week!

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.
