800 Fleming Street Unit B-2 - The William Fleming House - Key West

The above photo of the William Fleming House located at 800 Fleming Street in Old Town Key West was taken in 1986. You can see a klieg light in the foreground. The movie Russkies was filmed in Key West in late 1986. A lot of locals got to be a part of the production crew in that film. The photos below show the building in earlier years that lead up to the conversion of the mercantile building when it was converted into condominiums. As you look at the old photos you see that the building w as brick clad. During the renovation wood siding was added along with wrap-around balconies. Those balconies provide lots of exterior space for the owners to enjoy their homes and to watch the world go by. The balconies on the south side overlook the large and sunny pool not visible from the street.
 I wonder if our Historic Architectural Review Commission would allow such a change to a building like this today. It's purely speculative as the building is what it is. And it looks great. You cannot beat the convenient location right in the very heart of Old Town. It's an easy walk to Duval Street and the Historic Seaport.
800 Fleming Street Unit No. B-2 is  located on the south side and faces the swimming pool.  The interior photos below show the unit has Dade County Pine walls and ceiling which is trimmed with crown molding. The ceiling is 14 feet high. Clerestory windows provide additional light above the French doors that open out to the sunny  balcony. This unit has two bedrooms, two baths, the spacious living room, kitchen, and there is even a small loft located just to the side of the living room. The loft space is visible in the photo below.
One of the surprising features of the William Fleming House condos is the large pool located just south of the building. The pool has sun throughout the day.

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.
