1033 Catherine Street, Key West - Not to be Missed!

Just Listed by Preferred Properties Key West is 1033 Catherine Street which is a cute-beyond-belief two story home located in the Old Town area South of Truman. The listing Realtor describes this 1960 sq ft property this way:
"Live in a Tropical secluded single family residence, located in X500 of Old Town. Built in 1988 with all the characteristics of a vintage Key West Style home with off street parking. This 2 story home is unique because the great room is on the second floor, to take advantage of the foliage with wrap around terraces, up to date gourmet kitchen with striped mahogany cabinets, granite counter tops stainless steel appliance and full bath. On the first level you are greeted by cathedral ceilings over an additional living space, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a laundry area. The hallway leads you to a covered deck with a heated plunge pool. This home is located close to restaurants, houses of worship and the famous Duval Street. Current Insurances, Wind, Flood, and Hazard is $5562."
 When you first enter this home that was built new (not remodeled and expanded) in 1988, you assume it is a traditional home. But you'd be wrong. Yes there is a very comfortable living room located just inside the front door. The vaulted ceiling abundant windows give this space a very comfortable setting for every day living. A broad hall on the left provides access through the house. There is a guest powder room located just past the living room. That powder room also serves as the bath for the adjacent bedroom which is the first of three bedrooms in this home.
The broad staircase leads to the second floor of this unconventional home where the great room, kitchen, and a third bathroom are located. This space is bathed in muted light from all four sides of the living space. A wrap-around second floor balcony provides additional outside area for taking in our wonderful year around weather. What looks like a simple little Key West cottage from the street becomes a modern large living space that must be seen to be believed.
 There's a cute plunge pool and deck area at the first floor rear. The photos below don't do the space justice. CLICK HERE to view the photos I took of this lovely home.

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.
