10 Spoonbill Way, Key West - It's a Wonderful Life

Just Listed, but not by me, 10 Spoonbill Way, Key West, Florida. This 1624 sq ft home that is located in the Key West Golf Club Community is probably the best priced home in all of Key West as I write this blog.  Read on, Dear Reader, and I'll tell you how I arrived at that conclusion.
Every time I enter the golf club and start to drive down Golf Club Drive I just start to relax and enjoy the atmosphere. There is not one straight street in the place. Each of the roads winds around a bit. Each of the houses is set back from the sidewalk behind a white picket fence. Now matured palm trees and other flora and fauna decorate the landscape. It's picture perfect depiction of a small American home town.  As I drove through the community after taking photos of this home I realized that this place is like a community that Frank Capra would have created were he a real estate developer. A few years ago I was standing on the front porch of a home in the Sanctuary waiting for my buyers to arrive. A couple with their children and the family dog walked past. We spoke. I asked them how they liked living at the golf course. They all said the loved it. It could have been the George Bailey family in It's a Wonderful Life.
When I entered this house my eyes were literally drawn through the living room and out to the golf course view. It is spectacular. The backyard seemed extra large for some reason. I asked the listing agent if a new owner could add a pool because there certainly is room for one. She didn't know the answer but it is worth investigating if a buyer would want to add one. However, the extra large community pool is located just across the way and past the community center. See the photos below.
The second photo above was taken from the kitchen looking through the living room out to the deck and beyond. You'll notice the study of den to the right with the door slightly ajar. That door opens out to the wrap around rear main floor covered deck. The photo also shows the well maintained Hardiboard exterior siding.
The master bedroom is at the rear of the second floor. It also has a large covered porch with its own magnificent views of the golf course. I feel compelled to state the obvious - you don't have to play golf to live here. The master bedroom has an ensuite bath and plenty of closet space. Note also the vaulted ceiling that makes the space so inviting. There are two additional bedrooms at front, both of which have vaulted ceilings and doors that open out to the covered second floor front porch.

Compare the price per sq ft with even bank owned houses that need work, you will probably agree with me that this is the best priced home in Key West.

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.
