909 Eaton Street, Key West

The listing Realtor describes 909 Eaton Street in Key West this way:
"Isola Bella is where the Mediterranean meets the Caribbean. Gated and private, this historic Key West home is reminiscent of a Sicilian Villa. The spacious front yard and patio dining area are relaxing spaces adorned by Italian Cypress trees and statues fit for a Roman piazza. Ionic columns frame the welcoming front porch, leading to an interior masterpiece of original Cuban tile floors and custom built cabinetry. The open living area flows into a colorful breakfast nook, where French doors open to the inviting pool and patio. 2 BD/2BA main house with 1 BD/1BA guest quarters, off-street parking and walking distance to the Historic Seaport, White Street, and Duval Street. Featured on the 2009 OIRF Historic Homes tour, this unique property is your chance to experience Old Town Key West with a twist of Sicilian flair. Priced below recent appraised value!"
This is an Old Town home unlike any you have seen before in this blog or in person, of that I am sure. It is definitely worth a look if you are a buyer seeking a really nice home in a good location with a pool and off street parking which is offered at a reasonably affordable price. The house itself was built new in 1958 and later renovated to its current state. It is a CBS house with stucco finish with 1312 sq ft of air conditioned living space situated on a 50' X 106' lot (5326 sq ft) - that is equivalent to a standard lot in Casa Marina or twice the size of a standard Old Town lot.
Although the house has been updated, some original features such as the Cuban tile floors remain to add character to this home. In fact the first thing I noticed when I entered this home was the floors which are in impeccable condition. The living room alcove is to the left of the front entry. The bedrooms are located to the right. As you pass through the dining area French doors come into view and after that the covered patio and pool emerge.
The kitchen provides all the necessities in a colorful and compact environment. The pool area has both covered and sunny spaces. As much as you will want a sunny pool, you will quickly realize you need shade as well.  CLICK HERE to view more photos of this ingenious property.

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.
