1503 South Street, Key West - a Bit of Old Town in Mid Town

Who'd-a-thunk you could buy a genuine Old Town house in Mid Town Key West with a virgin-like yard.d home.  Read on and you will learn more. But look just below to see the same house after it was moved from the 600 block of Simonton Street to permit construction of the old firehouse at Simonton and Angela Streets.
The listing Realtor at Preferred Properties Key West describes this property this way:
"This charming property has never before been offered for sale and it is a one of a kind in this neighborhood. The house is considered a historic structure, having been moved to this location from Simonton Street in the late 1940's and features the sawtooth roofline found in many Old Town cottages. Instead of being landlocked, it sits on a 9400 sf lot offering the opportunity to build an accessory unit plus pool & gardens. The house was completely renovated from the structure up in 2011 and features vaulted ceilings, an open kitchen/living area, a beautiful kitchen with white Kraft Maid cabinetry and granite countertops, porcelain tile floors throughout and all new windows which invite in loads of natural light. There are three bedrooms and two baths off a central hallway, shotgun style. At the rear of the property is a fantastic workshop and covered patio flanked by many fruit trees including mango, cherry, guava, key lime and banana. If you are looking for space, this is for you!"
This newly rebuilt home looks so bright and cheery on the outside and that same warmth continues when you open the door to the vaulted ceiling and great room. The old walls were removed and the interior reconfigured for our modern lifestyle.
A central hallway leads to the three bedrooms and two baths. A glass door at the rear leads to the covered patio and nearby workshop.  You rarely get to see a green yard in Key West. This has got to be greener and in better shape than the nearby Bayfront Park.
Although there are two separate lots, this property is being offered as one parcel which includes the house and all of the land.

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.
