1509 Pine Street, Key West - Just Listed


 I took the two above photos in October 2006 as the eight Meadows of Key West town homes were being built. Four of the homes are located in the 1500 block of Petronia Street and the other four are located on Pine Street to the south. There is a private driveway at the rear which provides access to the each carport. Each home is built on a fee simple lot where the owner owns the entire lot and the home built upon it. Ten years later the once barren block looks like a typical block in Old Town Key West with majestic homes and tropical trees and foliage.
The above photo shows the matured private driveway. The arrow shows the 1509 Pine Street carport. The grass almost looks  like a velvety green carpet. Underground pipes carry storm runoff water to the drains in the driveway which then flow to the retention area on Eisenhower Drive. The eight homes are part of the condo association which owns and manages these limited common areas. (Condo fees are just $587 paid quarterly.)

On Monday Preferred Properties Key West listed 1509 Pine Street which the listing Realtor describes the property this way:
"Built in 2007 to resemble the charming historic architecture of Old Town Key West, this 3 bedroom 3 1/2 bath is all new. With 11 foot ceilings and 8 foot doors, the spacious rooms are filled with light. The gourmet kitchen has granite counters, high end stainless appliances and an incredible amount of storage. The sunny heated pool and spa with water feature are controlled by mobile app. Each bedroom has an en suite bathroom and high ceilings. The master has a vaulted ceiling and opens to a private balcony. This home has 150 mph. hurricane rated windows and doors and hardy plank siding. Other features include a private gated car port, cat 5 wiring, 2 zone central a/c and a wet bar. This home looks like a single family home but is part of the Meadows Condominium Assoc. in which all of the eight homes own their land and share a common driveway. Turn key with furniture negotiable. Low cost of ownership with mitigation credits. Move in ready!"
The main floor has travertine marble which transitions to a similar material on the rear terrace making it feel like there is no barrier between the inside and the outside. Inside the living area has an 11 foot ceiling, recessed light fixtures, extra high baseboards, and crown mold ceiling. The "look" is understated, sophisticated, but most important comfortable.
The master suite is located at the front of the second floor. You'll notice this bedroom has a vaulted ceiling which really expands the feel of this space. There is a covered porch providing the perfect perch to relish life at its finest. I have sold four homes here over the years. It's when I take people out to the porch that I point out the practicality of the construction. The doors are massive and thick. They have special hardware that makes them wind impact resistant. The windows look "old school" but are in fact impact resistant as well. The shutters can be used, but were installed for giving the house the old house feel. The Hardiboard siding is pest and fire resistant and withstands our hot and humid much better than real wood. And Hardiboard siding does not require to be painted as often as real wood siding. The result is a homeowner pays less for insurance and much less for maintenance. These are savings that occur year after year.

After you have looked at the listing photos and information, please call me, Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642, to set up a private showing. I am a buyers agent and a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Key West. I think these homes are among the best values in town.

I always felt that the kitchen layout and the stairway layouts of these were a little odd. Unquestionably nice properties though

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.
