199 Golf Club Drive, Key West

199 Golf Club Drive is located in the exclusive Sanctuary division of the Key West Golf Club Community. The listing Realtor describes this 1600 sq ft home this way:
"A rare one owner home impeccably maintained in the Sanctuary, a gated enclave within the KWGC. No renters or pets have lived here. Enjoy the lush, tropical, private yard on the 18th fairway of the Rees Jones designed golf course. Home features main floor office and the Great room transitions to a screened in covered deck that overlooks the 1000 S.F. brick patio surrounding your own lovely private inground saltwater pool. Some of the recent updates include appliances, granite countertops in baths, Australian Birch and Bamboo floors. The vaulted guest bedrooms both have access to the covered porch and the Master bedroom is complete with it's own screened in porch. Off street covered parking. KWGC features 2 heated pools and fitness center."
 I have written before and will repeat again here that I think these homes are among the best priced homes in Key West based on price per sq ft, amenities offered, and quality of construction. This home was built new in 2000, but has the look of a grand Conch House down the road in Key West. The main floor features an open living concept with a den located off to the side at the rear. This space can function as a den, TV room, office, or even a guest bedroom. There is a half-bath located on this level as well.The kitchen opens out to a breakfast bar. Four panel doors at the rear open out to the screen enclosed two story porch.
 Den, TV room, Office, or Fourth Bedroom located off the living area
The bricked backyard includes a heated pool. A small gate at the rear provides access out to the 18th fairway at the Key West Golf Club. The club is public and open to all. I have to constantly explain to potential buyers that you do not have to play golf to appreciate the beauty of this golf course.
The rear porch is constructed with steel I-beams. Note the windows have approved shutters to obtain discounts on wind insurance. The exterior appeared to be in very good condition as did the rest of the house. This is an important item to consider on any home purchase because a place that needs repaired will cost a new owner more money down the road. This home has been very well maintained.
The master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling which adds so much dimension to this home. The wood floors shine throughout the house but are especially noticeable on this floor where filted light peaks in through the windows. The master bedroom has exclusive use of the second floor rear covered porch. The two guest bedrooms at front are smaller in size but each has a vaulted ceiling as well.  These two bedroom share access the front covered porch and also the hall bath. Golf Club Drive is a beautiful street that loops through the Sanctuary and ends up back at the electronically operated iron gated entry.
Even though 199 Golf Club Drive has its own heated pool, guests may want to use the resort sized community pool or get in a workout at the community gym. Or they may want to sit in the butterfly garden to read a book or watch moss grow. In all the times I have gone over to the large pool, I rarely see anyone using the pool. The Key West Golf Club Community Homeowner's Association is professionally managed. Monthly homeowner fees are $380 and cover pool and landscaping maintenance, common area maintenance, cable television, security, and management. The temperature today may reach into the 90s. It's hard to imagine the pool and streets in December, but if you close your eyes imagine driving through the community the week before Christmas when most of the homes are decorated in anticipate of St Nick's arrival. This community is so pretty all year but is especially alluring at Christmastime.

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.
