1405 Washington Street, Key West


I dug down inside the old shoebox and found a photo of 1405 Washington Street that was taken in 1980 after the house was moved from its original location on Simonton Street. You can tell from the outset that the roof was replaced and a dormer added in front. A new addition was added to the rear of the property which today gives the current house1574 sq ft of living space. The house sits on a 53' X 94' lot (4945 sq ft) lot on a great street just a couple of blocks east of White Street and six blocks from the Atlantic Ocean. 
This house is laid out differently than most. The original home is now divided into the two main level bedroom spaces. The addition at the rear is now the main entry into the home. The combined living room, dining area, and kitchen are located in the rear addition. The master bedroom is located on the second floor. A sunny pool, spa and rear deck complete this home which the listing Realtor describes this way:
"In the heart of the Casa Marina neighborhood, this charming island home is perfect for entertaining and relaxing in the quintessential Key West lifestyle. Enjoy the ambience of the open and airy cathedral living, dining and kitchen areas which lead you to the sensational large deck, pool, spa and tropical gardens. There are two bedrooms conveniently located on one level adjacent to the front porches. The second floor master suite has a private entrance with breathtaking views of the surrounding treetops. This a remarkable property, in a prime location, also includes off-street covered parking and is walled for complete privacy."
The two main level bedrooms offer sleeping space for family or guests. The share first floor bath. The larger bedroom has access to the original front porch. The off street arking is adjacent to the front right.
Dormers were added to the original cottage where windows were added to provide light to this cozy boardroom. A full bath is located at the far end of the room. Closets are tucked under the eaves. The result is a cozy and comfortable master suite.

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.
