911 United Street, Key West - Price Reduction on a Classy Move-in Ready Home

The asking price on 911 United Street in Key West was just reduced from $1,295,000 to $1,189,900. While this beautiful house looks like a classic Conch Revival, it was actually built new in 2000.  The listing Realtor describes the property as a:
"Meticulously maintained home on corner lot featuring open floor plan with sliders leading to the deck with covered outdoor area, heated pool and spa. Three bedrooms, two full, two half baths. Master and guest bedroom on the second floor ensuite. Large his and hers closets in master with ample storage in master bath. Master balcony accesses pool area via a spiral staircase. Guest suite has private covered porch. Spacious third bedroom perfect for overflow guests & can also be used as an office. Off street parking for one car, professionally landscaped with lighting & irrigation. Located in the X Zone, hardy board construction and colonial storm shutters."
This 2380 sq ft home sits at the corner of United and Packer Street. The 2970 sq ft lot is an irregular  34' X 94'. The house sits towards the font of the lot. The back portion of the lot contains the pool and rear garden area. And there is private off street parking located behind the fenced pool area.
911 United Street offers three full floors of living space. The first floor includes a formal entry way which leads to the kitchen and great room just beyond. Notice the travertine marble floors, large baseboards and crown molding that would work equally well if decorated in a traditional semi-formal theme or with a relaxed Key West tropical theme. The second floor includes the guest bedroom with en-suite bath at the front of the house and the generous master bedroom at the rear. Both bedrooms have access to separate balconies. The rear balcony overlooks the pool below.

This home and land are owned in fee simple, just like your home up north in America. But here in Key West, this property is classified as a "land based condominium". The condominium designation allowed the construction of new single family homes (and the renovation one existing property) on lots that were smaller in size than required for new single family home construction. Some of the homes share a private lane that leads to off street parking spaces. Condo fees are just $325 yearly. Here the homeowner pays all maintenance and insurance costs just as you would on a single family home where you live.
A spiral stairway leads to the overly large third floor. The space runs the length of the house. The front space could accommodate a single bed.  The back space currently has a daybed and office furniture. There is more than enough room for a king size bed in the space. There is a small bath on this floor as well.
As noted above, a door off the master suite exits on to the rear second floor balcony that overlooks the pool and garden. A stairway provides access from the balcony for an early morning or late night dip in the private pool or spa.

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.
