1022 Packer Street, Key West - Nothing But the Best!

1022 Packer Street - Old Town - Key West
Just Listed by Preferred Properties Key West (that's where I work  but his is not my listing) 1022 Packer Street. The listing Realtor describes the property this way:
"This a truly grand property in Old Town and in the x-zone. A rare five bedroom home with five and a half baths, it also has four indoor sitting areas, a spacious covered outdoor living room, plus front and back balconies and a gracious front porch. There is a large splendidly-appointed kitchen and an outdoor cooking area. This house has been recently updated and refreshed with carefully chosen colors and fixtures. Lush new landscaping enhances the privacy of this special residence. There is a carport and parking for multiple vehicles."
I have shown this house when it was previously listed for sale. The current agent told me about the update, but his words failed to describe the remarkable transformation that has taken place. I am not sure my words will do any better. I hope the photos I took will entice a potential buyer or
two to take a look at this quite large and very comfortable Old Town home.
When you first arrive you can tell this is not an old house all fixed up to look great. It is a new house (built in 2007). There is a large bricked driveway with covered parking for two cars plus additional uncovered parking for two more cars. You will also notice the Hardiboard siding and impact glass windows. These two features will provide years of less costly maintenance and less expensive insurance compared to historic homes with wood siding and traditional windows. The front yard is gated and provides the perfect entry to the home.
When you enter the home you are immediately taken by the formality of the front entry. The Murano light fixture caught my eyes for starters. The tiger wood floors, wrought iron and wood staircase, and extra large crown molding punctuate the subtle beige interiors. There is a small sitting room located just past the front door on the right.
The doors at the rear of the living area open out to a lovely outdoor living area. The covered area can be expanded during the daytime when a movable awning is extended toward the pool and minimized when someone wants  more sun. More importantly, the indoor and outdoor areas seamlessly blend together to expand the already large interior living area with the outside.
A hallway just off the dining area leads to the two story guest extension of this home. You will notice an internal staircase that leads to the second floor bed and bath. This area is purposefully set apart from the main part o the house. It would be a good space for a mother-in-law or a brother-in-law who hates to work for a living. You can't have a kitchen in this space, however.
The master suite is located at the rear of the second floor. This space looks and feels like a suite at the Beverly Hills Hotel. It's that posh. There is one wall of custom closets, a huge en-suite with double sinks, tub, shower, and w/c. And then there is the wrap around second floor rear deck that provides shaded outdoor sitting areas off the master bedroom. It would really be like having your own private cabana at the BHH. 
There are three additional bedrooms on the second floor each of which has a private bath. The two front bedrooms have access to the covered second floor front porch. The middle bedroom is being used as an office. Remember the sitting area off the front entry? It could be used as an office if the second floor space were needed to be used as a bedroom.
The fifth bedroom is located on the second floor of the guest extension at the rear of the home. French doors open to a covered outdoor sitting area which also overlooks the pool and gardens below. CLICK HERE to view more photos showing all of the house from various angles.

1022 Packer Street is offered at $2,400,000. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet. Please call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642, to schedule a private showing of this 3,006 sq ft five bedroom home. I am a buyers agent and a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Key West.

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.
