2645 Gulfview Drive, Key West - Waterfront Property on the Gulf of Mexico

2645 Gulfview Drive is a smart looking 1600 square foot home located at Gulfview Point (formerly known as Roosevelt Annex) in Key West where each of the 25 single-family homes and town homes  are located on the water and sited for exquisite views of the setting sun over the Gulf of Mexico. Gulfpoint Annex continues to be an exclusive community with a neighborhood of homes surrounded by water on three sides.  This is the only place of this kind in Key West! Click GOOGLE MAP for an aerial perspective of the property and its relationship to the water.
This development was built by Pritam Shingh who also developed Truman Annex, the Key West Golf Club Community, Parrot Key Resort, and the new Marker Hotel in Old Town Key West. Each of the residential communities have the look and feel of small town America. After you pass the gated entry the road winds through the friendly neighborhood. Many but not all of the homes have covered off street parking (this one does). 2645 Gulfpoint Drive is located near the far end of the private road which means you won't be hearing or seeing other vehicles drive by your home. 
The main living level provides a lot of living space both indoors and outdoors. The family chef will have water views from the kitchen as he or she looks through the living area and out to the Gulf of Mexico. There is a spare room tucked off to the right side of the living room which has pocket doors to provide privacy when needed.  An owner might use that space as a dining room, home office, den, or maybe as a guest bedroom. (There is a half bath on this floor as well.) There is an expansive covered deck with steps that lead down to the larger open deck at pool side. Just beyond the picket fence is a walking trail that wraps around all three sides of the development. This is a great place to walk the family dog. Some owners have installed floating (non-permanent) docks to moor small boats at waters edge.
On the second floor there are two guest bedrooms at the front of the house. The bedroom on the west side has a door that opens to the front balcony which overlooks Gulfview Drive. Both bedrooms have vaulted ceilings which enhance the spatial feel in these rooms. The master bedroom with en-suite bath is at the rear where there is a covered deck that has commanding views of the water. I had a listing that I sold at Gulfview last year. Each time I took potential buyers out to either deck their jaws dropped - the views are just incredibly beautiful and so serene. So many people dream of moving to Key West and imagine the joys of living on an island. The reality in Key West is that there are very few homes that have any sort of water view.  This home is the exception to that rule! Here you can actually see the water every day and watch amazing sea and sky change as the morning turns to day and the day turns to night. You'll see sunny skies and foreboding clouds and even watch and listen as thunder claps across the vast open water. You'll have a view that very few people get to have in our little town.
There is a home owner association which requires payment of monthly fees of $372 which includes cable television, security, and grounds maintenance. The park-like grounds are meticulously maintained. Pets are permitted with restrictions. CLICK HERE to see more photos which I took.

2645 Gulview Drive is offered for sale at $849,900. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet. Then please call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642 to schedule a private showing.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

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.
