This special little home at 707 Southard Street is located in the heart of Old Town Key West and is back on the market. (It's been on and off a couple of times since it was listed this spring.) You can't beat the location for convenience. Most of the neighboring homes are equally charming and certainly much pricier. The asking price will fit the budget of many buyers who want a simple getaway place: asking $565,000.

904 Frances Street - Old Town - Key West - June 2012 I recently got a chance to view the charming bungalow located at 904 Frances Street in the Old Town area of Key West. I had not been inside this recently remodeled house. I was pleasantly surprised to see how much I had missed. This not so little four bedroom home is worthy of further consideration. The listing Realtor describes the property this way: "Delightful renovation of a cigar makers cottage on one of the best streets in the heart of Old Town Key West. Three bedrooms and (3 comments)
1958 Plymouth Belvedere that looks identical to my first car Regrets, I've had a few. I have learned you do not get many 'do overs' and that the choices you make can be the harbingers of your future. Take for instance my first car - a green 1958 Plymouth Belvedere. It wasn't my first choice to be my first car. It was what I could afford. But before I bought the Plymouth, my dad and I went to the used car lot at Luby Chevrolet in downtown Denver in the winter of 1964. The dealership actually was located on some (5 comments)

Locals woke up this morning to the news of the sale of the 400 to 408 block of Duval Street as being sold for a whopping $19,130,000. I heard about the sale on Thursday morning as I was working in my yard. The Selling Realtor was Mitzi Krabill of Truman and Company. She procured the buyer who just happens to be my next door neighbor. Mitzi told me that Claude Gardner at Prudential Knight and Gardner Realty was the listing agent. The property had not been listed in the mls so the sale came as quite a shock to me. (0 comments)
Photo from Monroe County Library showing horse drawn trolley on Division Street (now Truman Avenue) at the corner of Francis Street C 1890. Just listed by Preferred Properties Key West a truly interesting bit of Old Key West located at 912 Truman Avenue. I dug around in the famous old shoebox and found a photo of the property taken back in 1965. If you study the old black and white pic you will see an almost ancient chain link fence that surrounds the corner lot. Note the extra long posts that support the roof overhang and the 'missing' second floor (1 comments)

920 Terry Lane - Old Town - Key West 920 Terry Lane in Old Town Key West sits opposite the foot of the Historic Key West Lighthouse.

Just 1 block from the Hemingway House and 2 blocks from (2 comments)
Just listed, but not by me, 413 Frances Street in Old Town Key West. When you enter the front doorway your eyes are immediately drawn to the Dade County Pine walls and stairway to the second floor by the sign over the stairway entrance that reads "Welcome To Paradise". This house is the embodiment of what would-be home buyers dream of in a Key West house. The Dade County Pine is a given. The almost rustic appearance is intentional. The lack of some finishes was an artistic choice and not an excuse to finish something. (The owner has meticulous records (1 comments)

205 Golf Club Drive - Key West The Sanctuary at the Key West Golf Course is that special section reserved for primarily grand homes with great golf course views amid lush tropical foliage. Large iron gates separate The Sanctuary from the rest of the development. Once you pass the entrance you will see small lakes to the left and links to the right. Then the great houses come into view. Large homes line Golf Club Drive as it loops around to return to the gated entrance. Homes on the inside of the loop are referred to as spa homes. Those homes (2 comments)
618 Petronia Street - Old Town - Key West The house at 618 Petronia Street is worth looking at if you are a budget shopper looking for a perfectly livable house that can be moved into the day you close but that could be upgraded and improved upon as well. That house has been on the market for quite some time. I have told buyers that found it that I thought the property was 'over-priced' and we never looked. A new Realtor recently listed the property at a new and much more realistic asking price of $474,900. I showed (0 comments)
