606 Truman Avenue No 5, Key West - Transient Licesensed Unit

Preferred Properties Key West (that's where I work but this is not my listing) is the listing brokerage for 606 Truman Avenue No. 5), a sharp 2/2 Windward Park town home which is offered at  just $924,500.  The home offers 1260 sq ft of living space divided between the two floors with two master suites.
Two magnificent Royal Poinciana Trees frame the entrance into the Windward Park Townhome compound. In two or three weeks these trees will blossom and this private parking area will be fully ablaze with millions of tiny red flowers. When you pass through the electronically gated entry the first thing you will probably notice is the very large and usually sunny pool around which most of the thirteen homes are located. Unit No. 5 is tucked away to the left.
The listing Realtor describes this property this way:
"Two bedroom/two bath transient rental property in Windward Park. Immaculately maintained by very particular owners; lots of upgrades and recent attention to every detail of the property. A private island oasis of only 13 townhomes in a compound only a short walk from Duval Street and yet a great distance from the hustle and bustle. Large, heated community pool, X flood zone and security gate entrance along with an assigned, deeded parking spot are some of the important features of this HOA. Excellent rental record making this property a wonderful investment or personal vacation home."

The main living area with the second floor "catwalk" can bee seen in a couple of other units at Windward Park but not all. The catwalk certainly adds dramatic flair to the living space where the ceiling soars two stories.  Otherwise, the main floor is laid out traditionally with the living room and dining area at front followed. One of two master suites is located at the rear. There is a main floor bathroom with access off either the living area or from the bedroom. French doors open from the bedroom to a private deck where an owner or guest could get an all over Key West tan. The washer and dryer are located here which means the noise and humidity will be outside not inside.
If you have looked at other town homes, condos, or even moderately price old houses in Key West before you have probably found that many bedrooms are rather small and often dark. Not so here. The second floor master bedroom is extra large.  If you prefer sleeping in a king size bed, you will have room to spare in this big boy bedroom that has windows that face overlook the gardens of St. Mary's of the Sea Basilica. This bedroom also has an extra large closet with owners' lockout. The en-suite bath is also extra large. Compare the size of both bedrooms to similarly priced units at Truman Annex which can only be rented for 25 weeks each year on a transient basis. Put yourself in the position of a renter and ask where would I rather sleep? CLICK HERE to view more photos I took of this home.

I am a buyers agent and a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Key West. I took photos of this unit late yesterday afternoon where I was sandwhiched in between other agents showing the place to prospective buyers. The last transient licensed unit went under contract in a matter of days after it was listed. I think this one will to. This place is clean as a whistle. There is no deferred maintenance. It's got a valuable full City of Key West Transient License which allows for 52 weekly rentals. The unit is one block from Duval and close to all that Old Town has to offer. Need I say more!

Transient Rental License = 26 weeks not 52. Great location.

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.
