95 Bay Drive, Saddlebunch Key Florida

95 Bay Drive, Saddlebunch Key, Florida is located about 11.5 miles east of Key West on the Overseas Highway more commonly known by tourists as US 1.  To locals it is a bedroom community with an easy commute to Key West. To second home buyers who hope to find a dream home where could retire, it may be the place they have been dreaming to find. The listing Realtor describes this ocean front home this way:
"When you are lucky enough to live by the sea, you are lucky enough! Cozy, Open Water cottage styled home features beautiful Tigerwood flooring, Custom ceiling, two bedrooms, and three baths. Enjoy scrumptious ocean breezes and spectacular sunrises on the charming enclosed screened porch. This home was designed for maximum enjoyment of the bay; concrete boat basin, sea wall, sandy beach, kayak and paddle launch. Fish from your own backyard for snapper or snorkel and swim in the crystal clear water every day of the year. Private and gated with picture perfect garden sitting areas. Entertaining made easy with built in bar, full bath and laundry on the lower level. Quick trip to the Atlantic or Gulf with your Key West, Carolina Skiff, Deck Boat or Whaler. Follow your Dream, Retire in the Keys."

This home is CBS (concrete block construction) built in 1982 with 1592 sq ft of living space - not including the porches. The lot is irregular of approximately 70.5' X 120' or 8936 sq ft. That's almost twice the size of a typical Casa Marina Area lot or about four times the size of most lots in Old Town. So here you get more room with an ocean view included.
The road at the top of the above photo is US 1. Key West is a 15 minute drive or so the south and west. Miami and North America are the other direction. I just returned from vacation in New York and Boston. There are millions of people up there. A lot of them spend hours traveling back and forth to work everyday and spend much of their day bumping into or avoiding bumping into other people. When I returned home I was so glad to be back and smell the fresh unpolluted air and experience the soft breezes. We had a bunch of rain right after I got back, but our imclement weather is nothing to the heat and the cold that northerners experience. We have a few days a year of bad weather. They have a couple of months of tolerable weather. 
The enclosed porch is 516 sq ft and is not included in the total square footage of the house itself. As the above photos show much of the real living in this home occurs on the porch. That porch provides great views of the ever changing ocean.

Lest you think you would be starved from society by living this far from civilization, you can walk up to US 1 to get fresh coffee at BABY'S or go next door to get a sandwich. There is a lovely children's park behind BABYS with plenty of space to let your dog run like mad.

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.
