42 Spoonbill Way, Key West - Key West Golf Club Community

I had the opportunity to preview 42 Spoonbill Way located at the Key West Golf Club for an out of town buyer a couple of days ago. I thought I would share my thoughts on this home which I feel is good buying opportunity.  CLICK HERE to see an aerial view of the house which is located near the end of a dog-leg extension off Spoonbill Way. That means there is very little traffic to interrupt the peace and quiet of this little neighborhood. You will also note that the house has great views of the golf course from the rear. 
As you approach the house you immediately appreciate the modern day re-imagining of the Key West Conch house set back from the sidewalk by a white picket fence. The house has first and second floor porches on the front and rear. You can probably just imagine sitting on the porch watching not much of anything happening. Even on a rainy day, like the day I took my photos, the front entry looks inviting.
The listing Realtor describes 42 Spoonbill Way this way:
"Rare opportunity Golf Club 3 Bedroom 3 Bath with one bedroom and full bath on the first level. Master kitchen with top of the line stainless appliances, large living room, plenty of space for a dining table.screened deck off of the living room and master bedroom offering picturesque Golf Course Views, full wet bar, large bedrooms with vast closet space and a deck on both floors front and back are just some of the features of this great home. A resort style pool with seating in both the sun and shade, a smaller more private pool and fitness center make this the perfect location set alongside a Reese Jones designed Championship Golf Course. Priced to sell this home won't last long. Arrange to a viewing before someone beats you to it."
When I entered this home I immediately felt "at home". I have been inside many similar homes, but each place is always a little different from the next. The kitchen is located up front. It opens up to the rest of the living area. Double sliders at the rear open out to the covered and screen enclosed rear porch. I went out in the sprinkling rain to take in the view. Even if you are not a golfer, chances are pretty good you love looking at big blue skies and rolling green turf. On this day the skies were gray and the links were soaked with water. Birds were sampling the newly formed water ponds to see if the water was any different than the nearby lake water.
The above pic shows the third bedroom, den, or home office which is located up front opposite the kitchen. There is an adjacent full bath.  There is enough space here for a queen bed and dresser or an owner might opt for a sofa sleeper or Murphy bed with daytime desk and bookshelves.
Just because I tagged the front bedroom as being the master bedroom does not make it so. The large bathroom has dual sinks and space enough for two people at the same time. The bedroom is fairly good sized. The vaulted ceiling and French doors that open out to covered front porch give this space a sense of importance in my book. 
Even on a rainy day the rear bedroom and covered deck were very appealing. Imagine how pretty the views are at early morning before the golfers show up and after the last golfers depart at days end when sunset approaches.
Monthly homeowner association fees are $380 which includes Cable TV, manned security at the front entrance, pool maintenance, and common area maintenance. If you have ever driven through the golf course you may agree with me that the tree lined streets and grounds are just beautiful. I love driving through this area at Christmas when so many of the homes are decorated for the holidays.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

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.
