1117 Stump Lane, Key West - Stunning Renovation

In November 2012 I wrote about the then new listing of a decades long Conch family home that was a great renovation project. It was purchased within days of being listed and a couple of months later the new owner began an amazing renovation that today is offered for sale again. But to appreciate the current beauty, I want my readers to see what stood before.
The interiors were those of a normal local family who had lived in this home for years and years. The back yard was concrete painted green which a lot of Conchs favored over yards which require constant maintenance. This was a place ripe for renovation.
The original living room with the over-stuffed rocker has been transformed into one of three bedrooms. The old concrete pad was removed and became a cool pool and deck area with lots of sunshine. And all the rooms in between have been reborn inside the old frame house. Everything from foundation to rooftop have been replaced and reformed into a beautiful home. Let's take a look at a few of the photos that showcase this home.
The old house became new not only by replacing linoleum floors with new solid wood floors and replacing acoustic tile ceilings with vaulted ceilings and recessed light fixtures, but also by re-configuring old single purpose rooms into modern living spaces. Sure that happens a lot in most renovations, but not all look this stunning!
The listing Realtor describes 1117 Stump Lane like this:
"An outstanding transformation of an Historic Conch Home located on one of the most secluded lanes in Old Town. Just two blocks from the Historic Seaport and 4 blocks from the famed Duval Street. On the main level there is a master bedroom with a bath, open living/dining area with gourmet kitchen, half bath and laundry closet. French doors open to reveal an 22 ft. pool with a great water feature and decking all around. Upstairs are two very bright bedrooms and baths. Brazilian wood floors throughout and accented Dade County pine walls. Spend lazy days on the covered front porch. Offered turn key down to the dishes. This property has been a very successful vacation rental."  In fact it has been so successful that she has not been able to show it because it has been vacation renter occupied. But potential buyers will finally be able to see inside come June 1st.

We looked at this house when it was on the market in 2012 - and I have seen the renovation - they did a great job although in my opinion, they should have put a smaller pool in as it takes up too much of the space.

Interesting....

Most buyers want a real pool and not what many owners are forced to accept: a cocktail pool.

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.
