1320 Olivia Street, Key West - A New "Old" House

As a rule newly built houses in most parts of the United States pretty much go un-noticed but here in Key West new houses are the exception rather than the rule. 1320 Olivia Street is one of those exceptions - it is a two story 1242 sq ft home with two bedrooms, two and one-half baths, first and second floor porches that look out to the a little one-way street that traverses the quiet area of Key West known as The Meadows Area.
The great room plus the half-bath occupy the first floor of the house. The large open living spaces have a cozy feel given by the wood siding and ceilings that give this space a cozy-comfy feeling. The kitchen has an open and spacious feel. Notice the under cabinet placement of washer and dryer. There's a back door to the outside rear area. No room for a pool in this tiny backyard, however.
There are two good sized bedrooms on the second floor. Both have en-suite baths and closets. I mention closets because a lot of older homes in Old Town do not have closets. Both rooms have vaulted ceilings and paladin doors that open out to the second floor front porch. While the bedrooms are not large, they aren't small either. The ceiling height and access to the front porch really give these rooms a big house feel that you don't get to experience in most homes at this price point. CLICK HERE to view more photos I took.

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.
