918 Southard Street Unit #111 - Key West - Bank Owned Condo in Old Town

918 Southard Street Unit 111, Key West is a newly listed Bank Owned property that is certainly something to cheer about. This place is as clean as a whistle and ready for a new owner to move in. You'll jump for joy about the location as well. It's located just four blocks from Duval Street and three blocks from the Historic Seaport. Five Brother's Deli is one-half block to the east.That's where you will get your morning cafe con leche. And Michael's is one block to the west. That's where you'll find great steaks.  The unit itself sits near the far end of Griffin Lane on the east side of building. Other houses on the lane are historic Conch houses.

The listing Realtor describes this property as:
"Heart of Old Town 3 Story Condo with 1 Bedroom 2 Bath with Open Loft on the third floor. Wood floors throughout, new Kitchen Cabinets and Appliances. Private Clubhouse and Community Pool. Walking distance to shopping, restaurants, Duval Street and the Historic Seaport."
Let me let you in on a little secret: this place is Da-Bomb! It's much larger than you'd think and nicer than you'd expect for the asking price. Level one has a living area but I would not call it the "living room". It's more like an small family room, den, or study. The bedroom is located at the back of the front floor. There is a full bath that separates the front room from the bedroom. A stairway leads to the second level. 
The main living area is located on the second floor. The kitchen is a bit on the wee side. But it has all the conveniences most second home owners would need and would likely work for most full time residents as well. There is also a full bath on this level. Glass slider doors open out to the second floor deck that overlooks Griffin Lane.
The stairway leads to the biggest surprise of this unit - a third floor open loft that could serve as a second bedroom space. There is no closet on this level, but there is ample room for a bed, dresser, and maybe an armoire.  Skylights on either side of the ceiling provide good daytime light to this space. This space would be good for someone who does not have a lot of overnight guests. 
Southard Square Condominiums have a beautiful gated entry off Southard Street. The community pool and clubhouse are located on the sunny side of the spacious grounds. You'll be getting great tan lines if you lay by this pool. And that's a promise.  CLICK HERE to view more photos that I took of this property.

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.
