1522 Patricia Street, Key West - Price Reduction

The asking price on 1522 Patricia Street in Key West was just reduced to $1,295,000. This listing of Preferred Properties Key West was recently renovated and expanded and is now ready for a new owner to move in and start to live the good life.  Everything has been done to make this new home user friendly, easy to maintain, and inexpensive to insure.  Flood insurance is quoted at $1,900 per year, Windstorm is quoted at $2,500 per year.
The listing Realtor, not me, describes this home this way:
"Built to last, this spacious split-level home is situated on a sunny corner lot in the neighborhood that is Key West's best kept secret. The lower level has three guest bedrooms with shared bath and a spacious master suite with ample closet space and a private entrance via the large covered lanai. The upper level consists of a open great room with 9 foot ceilings, multiple windows and French doors opening out to the swimming pool and tropical gardens. A chef's kitchen features Decora cabinets, stainless steel appliances and Corian counter tops. Features such as storm-rated windows and doors, Colombian barrel-tile roof rated for 200 MPH, and color-tinted stucco, result in low insurance and maintenance costs. Come see today what's going on!"
Locals may recognize the area as being within easy walking distance to Higg's Beach or Smather's Beach.  Most of the homes in this area have been updated. This is an area where most homes are owner occupied as opposed to parts of Casa Marina, the Meadows, and Old Town where many of the houses are second homes, some of which are used as vacation rentals. You won't be seeing any Conch Trains going up and down these streets with speakers barking out information on the houses. This is a quite neighborhood.
As I walked inside the foyer my eyes were drawn upward to the great room that was filled with late morning sunshine. I could not help but notice the elegant travertine marble floors and baseboards (which are carried throughout the house). When I reached the top stair my eyes were then drawn through the impact glass doors and out to the sunny pool. Pools and outdoor living spaces are among the prime reason people move to Key West and this home has a lovely pool and outdoor entertaining area. The rest of the yard is very nicely landscaped. 
The master bedroom with en-suite bath and large walk-in closet is located on the lower level along with three other bedrooms.

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.
