1313 United Street, Key West - A Lucky New Listing!

Just listed by Preferred Properties Key West, that is where I work but this is not my listing, 1313 United Street. Buyers looking for a charming house with the potential for some legal income or property that could be tweaked a bit without breaking the bank should take note of this abode which the listing agent agent describes as:
"A delightful duplex on a nice big lot, this property has many surprising features. The downstairs owners unit has been completely renovated, with elegant molding, new hardwood floors, split-system A/C, two bedrooms with private baths, and a half bath off the living/dining area. A galley kitchen opens out to an inviting rear deck with views of the tropical gardens and a cute little cottage with many possibilities. There is room for a pool and expansion of the existing cottage. Upstairs is a spacious one bedroom one bath apartment with its own kitchen, washer/dryer and air conditioning. A surprise is a real cellar, currently used for storage. Easy conversion back to single family residence."

The black and white photo shows 1313 United Street as it appeared in 1965. I think it looks so much better today. The old carport is gone. Now one of the two main  level bedrooms (both with en-suite baths) occupy the space on the east side of the house. The main living area is a large open space that flows into the recently updated kitchen at the rear of the house.  There's a powder room just off the dining area.
The large kitchen is bright and cheery.  New cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and easy flow out to the deck and beautiful backyard make this cooking and dining area such a delight.

This main house is spotless and is move in ready. There is room for a pool in the rear. A new owner might want to convert the rear cottage into a pool side cabana. An outdoor shower is located at the side of the rear cottage already.  The legal apartment is accessed via an exterior staircase on the side of the house. Look at the photos to see that unit. A new owner might use that space as a home office. I get a lot of attorneys and semi-retired execs looking for a place where they can stay busy when not enjoying their life in Key West. This space would be perfect. And if you wanted some income to help pay the costs of home ownership, this apartment is legal.

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.
