1019 Flagler Avenue, Key West - A New Jewel in the Crown of the Casa Marina Area

Just Listed 1019 Flagler Avenue in Key West. This freshly updated and expanded home is a new jewel in the crown of the Casa Marina Area. The original home was built sometime in the early 1900s with "Indian brick" which was a cement based brick formed and manufactured on site. Later additions were added to the west and east sides. The current owner purchased this property, gutted the original house, and razed the earlier additions.
This home was totally rebuilt from foundation to roof using new materials and new technology.  New additions were added to the west and east sides. CLICK HERE to view the photos of the old house and during the renovation process.
Even though this home dates back to the beginning of the last century, the owner was able to incorporate cost efficient wind impact windows and doors throughout this home. So when you enter this place, you enter a home that will save you money on insurance and operational costs for years and years to come. Everything you see except the original 2"X4" framing, foundation, and Indian block walls is new. That includes the new grand staircase to the second floor, the 12 ft coffered ceiling in the living and dining areas, and the rich real wood floors and crown molding and trim throughout the house. There's also new metal roof and superior gutter system. Another feature is the unobtrusive but forever vigilant home security system plus Smart House technology that can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
The new first floor east addition to this home includes an expansive family room with multiple French doors that open out to the rear deck and pool area. The room includes a custom made media wall with lighted display cases.  The hallway includes a first floor guest bath. Adjacent to the guest bath you will find a bit of "future" planning as it were. This room is currently decorated with a sofa bed. The room, like all bedrooms in this home, has abundant built-in closets and an en-suite bath. This room would make a very comfortable first floor master suite should the day arise that the stairs became a chore.
The master suite occupies the entire east side addition. The bedroom area is quite large. Real wood floors are used for all bedrooms on this floor. Note the use of porcelain tile floors in the en-suite bath has both a soaking tub and shower plus two sinks. The tiles have the look of wood but the functionality of tile. A set of French doors opens out to the second floor sundeck that spans the back side of the house. The two other guest bedrooms on this floor have access to the sundeck as well. Both guest bedrooms have en-suite baths and lots of closet space. All bedrooms have down lights and switched receptacles. The laundry room is also located on this floor. The cute little pool house has a private bath plus an outside shower for a quick rinse after an afternoon basking by the pool.  CLICK HERE to view more photos I took of this home.
1019 Flagler Avenue is offered for sale by Preferred Properties Key West, that is where I work but this is not my listing. All furniture and furnishings may be purchased sseparately at the price of $150,000.  CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet and listing photos.

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.
