800 Fleming Street #1B Key West - The William Fleming House

Just Listed by Preferred Properties Key West 800 Fleming Street #1B, a handsome two bedroom two bath William Fleming House Condominium offered for sale at just $815,000. The listing Realtor describes this property this way:
"This ground floor condominium is perfectly situated poolside in the ideally located William Fleming House. The dramatic double height great room has big high windows and two pairs of French doors opening to a private wrap-around deck. New custom designed bookcases fill one whole wall. The master bedroom has high ceilings, a loft study, walk-in closet and a door leading to the deck. The second bedroom is in a cozy loft overlooking the great room. The assigned parking space is very close to the unit."

The photos above show the building in earlier years before the mercantile building was converted into condominiums. As you look at the old photos you see that the building originally was brick clad. During the renovation wood siding was added along with wrap-around balconies. Those balconies provide lots of exterior space for the owners to enjoy their homes and to watch the world go by. At night the building stands out as a now iconic symbol of sophisticated living in Historic Old Key West.
I remember the very first time I saw a unit at the William Fleming House. I thought "Wow! This is like a New York loft only it's located in Key West, Florida". It has many attributes of an old Key West house but modern updates which suggest loft-style living. The unit has Dade County Pine walls, ceiling, and floors you'd see in many Old Town homes. But the similarity stops when you see the impressive 14ft ceilings wrapped with crown molding and crisp white baseboards. Dual sets of French doors with clerestory windows above open to the private deck.  Plantation shutters diffuse the sunlight from windows on the east side of the living room. Finally, a contemporary interior stairway leads to the second level loft bedroom where there is a nook sitting area that could also be used as an office.
The main floor bedroom is tucked away from the main living areas. A French door opens out to the side deck area which would be a good place to do your morning exercises if you choose not to go one of the gyms located in the Old Town area.  Both bathrooms are on the first floor so you and your mate can make pretty at the same time without getting in each other's way.
The deck off the living area provides just the right amount of privacy but enough sunshine and blue sky to remind you that the  sunny pool is near.  If you have look at one of the resort type condominiums, you probably are familiar with lots of bodies lounging by pool all day long. In all the times I have shown units at the William Fleming House, I saw people in the pool one time. There are just nine units here so the chances are good that you won't be seeing people by the pool all that often.
I took a lot of photos of this property which you can see if you CLICK HERE. The photos will show many alternate view of the building, pool, and interiors. Just above you can see the off street parking. Each unit has one assigned space.

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.
