1026 Von Phister Street - The Casa Marina Area - Key West

Just Listed by Preferred Properties Key West, 1026 Von Phister Street located in Key West. The listing Realtor describes this 2233 sq ft four bedroom, four bath Casa Marina Area home with guest cottage as a:
"Modern Traditional sprawling ranch home on a large corner lot in the much sort after Casa Marina. The interior flows to incorporate the massive outside living area, focusing on the 38'X 14' heated pool and outdoor kitchen with covered dining. There is a guest cottage with a breakfast kitchen and full bath that is situated just off the pool. The house boasts an enormous master bedroom suite with a large walk-in closet, sunlight filled marble bath with Jacuzzi tub, walk-in shower, and a sitting room. The living area is surrounded by large windows, which extends gracefully to the kitchen and pantry. Off street parking for two cars covered and two uncovered. This home is outstanding in the evening light."
This home is laid out with privacy in mind. The open living area is located at the front. The dining area and kitchen are at the rear. The covered out door kitchen is adjacent to the indoor kitchen. The master suite is located on the far side of the pool as seen immediately above. Guest bedrooms are located on the opposite side of the main house and in a stand alone guest cottage at the far side of the pool. The thing is you can enjoy your guests. They can enjoy your home. You and your guests won't have to share all moments together.
Huge palms frame this 98' X 99' sq ft corner lot located just four blocks from the Atlantic Ocean.  Houses in the Casa Marina Area are known for their extra large lots and less density as compared to Old Town. Most of the houses in this area are single story which means more privacy. A lot of homes in this area are second homes which means they are not occupied most of the year. Some people rent, but many do not.  You will become familiar with locals as you will see them walking their dogs or doing daily fitness walks.

I actually live across the street from this property. I think it was my first 4th of July that I realized I could sit by my pool and watch the fireworks being shot off over Higg's Beach. You could do the same thing if you purchase this home.  Of course if you walk over to the beach you will get an even better view.
I am sitting at my desk as I finish today's blog. The Plantation shutter is open. The near full moon glows bright ducking in and out of clouds. The palms are swaying back and forth in the breeze. My house is also on a large corner lot and I also have giant palms that frame my yard. My sky is immense. That is something you rarely get to experience in most houses in Old Town. That's because most houses are two stories tall and sit so close to each other that views are limited. I'm not suggesting that life is better here. But it is different and more private. And the views aren't bad either.

I've lived in the 1200 block of VonPhister for close to 30 years and this is one of my favorite houses in Key West, the layout is my dream home. Whalton & VonPhister is a super quiet & peaceful intersection.

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.
