1112 Varela Street, Key West - Old Town South of Truman

Just Listed by Preferred Properties Key West, that's where I work but this is not my listing, 1112 Varela Street in the South of Truman section of Old Town Key West.  A lot of would-be buyers may not realize there is more to Old Town than those few blocks between the Key West cemetery and Duval Street. There are more houses of the same approximate age and construction in the area South of Truman. Many of the streets have different names and this confuses both tourists and locals. The new listing on Varela Street would be Frances Street if Frances Street continued on the south side of Truman. I dug into the old shoebox and found an old photo that shows this property fifty years ago in a time before all the white picket fences, palm trees, and tropical foliage that started to adorn our homes and yards. The photo helps to explain the current configuration as well. The front porch with tile floor is now a cozy place to watch the world pass by only less visible from the street. The front door opens into the living room which then becomes the dining area which then leads into the kitchen. The kitchen flows into the Florida room complete with wood louvers look out to the rear orchid garden and pool. The two bedrooms with baths are located on the left side of the house. The original metal louvers shown in the black and white photo have been replaced. In fact the house has been updated and made into an inviting 1065 sq ft single level home that will capture your fancy.

This is the kind of place would-be buyers dream of owning. It's offered at $879,000. Please call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642 to schedule a visit. I am a buyers agent and a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Key West.

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.
