818 Carsten Lane, Key West, Florida

They don't make Key West cottages any cuter or more perfect than 818 Carsten Lane.  If they did or if they could, everybody would own one. But they don't.  Some places are so special that there is only one. And this is that one!
I found an old photo of 818 Carsten Lane taken fifty years ago. The house was dramatically updated a few years ago. Today the place is picture perfect down to the replica mailbox out front that greets guests as they approach this smart two bedroom two bath cottage style home. The listing Realtor, not me, describes this home as a:
"Delightful cottage on coveted Old Town Key West Lane. Behind the white picket fence a beautiful front porch welcomes you to to this perfectly appointed home. Dade County Pine floors, walls and ceilings throughout the original home that opens up to a fabulous addition with vaulted ceilings. A wall of glass doors fold open to enjoy a covered patio overlooking tropical gardens and views of the heated pool. The kitchen boasts custom cabinetry that has been built around Haitian Art, granite counters and high end appliances. Offered furnished so you could start enjoying this home immediately. It truly doesn't get more charming than this!"
The side hall leads past the bedrooms which are located at the front of the house. The kitchen in located midway in the house. It's adorable. It's so cute you'd hate to cook for fear of messing up the cuteness.  You'll immediately notice the Dade County Pine walls and ceiling. The original wood floors, high baseboards, and crisply painted white woodwork add so much character to this place. The kitchen and living room are a new addition to the home.
The great room was added to the rear of the original house. It has a vaulted ceiling and French doors that open out to the rear covered deck and pool area beyond. There are clean and neat side yards on both sides of this house. The fence at the rear abuts Carey Lane which I think is the cutest little lane in town. I mention this because the owners on that lane and the abutting properties on Carsten Lane are all cute cottage style homes.

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.
