1117 Grinnell Street #2, Key West

Bargain shoppers should consider this really Cute Conch Cottage located at 1117 Grinnell Street in Key West. The listing Realtor, not me, describes the property this way:
"Charming Conch Cottage! Extremely well done two bedroom and one bath Grinnell Square condo. Featuring beautiful wood floors and walls, granite countertops, mosaic tile bath, French doors and plenty of character. Classic front porch and a covered back porch overlooking the community pool. Walk or bike to all Key West has to offer."
The original small cottage homes were thoroughly rebuilt and re-purposed twelve years ago. Just about every thing in this house is new or was new just after the renovation. The owners have used the front bedroom as an office. The living and dining area are so cute. The kitchen is located at the rear where French doors open out to the private covered deck which overlooks the community pool. I showed another unit here a couple of years ago. I never saw one person use the pool.
The condo association would permit an owner to rent the cottage as either a long term rental (annually) or as a monthly vacation rental. The location is within easy walking distance to the restaurants and attractions on Duval Street and the gyms, yoga studios, and shopping in the nearby White Street area. I think this place function well as a rental no matter which avenue you choose to follow assuming you would want to rent. The price is so affordable that a second home buyer might decide to keep this lovely little home for yourself. Monthly condo fees are just $340 and include building maintenance, building insurances, and water. As a homeowner, you would have to pay your own real property taxes. 
1117 Grinnel Street #2 is offered for sale at $499,900. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet and to see more photos of this cottage home.

This is my friends' place. It is small but very cute and feels larger than it is. Great location as well.

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.
