When you walk through the gate at 908 Seminary Street in the tony Casa Marina area of Key West you instantly know you have reached the ideal. Sinatra even crooned about it when he sang "It's the good life, full of fun, seems to be the ideal..." Every step leads you to something special or something different, maybe something old, and likely something new as well. Every window has a view that invites you outside to experience the wonders of living in Key West.
The listing Realtor describes 908 Seminary Street thus:
"Sophisticated and Elegant Four Bedroom Residence on a quiet street in the highly desirable Casa Marina neighborhood of Key West. Huge tropical lot with amazing outdoor spaces and a wonderful outdoor kitchen. Custom renovation of a historic home combines panache and simplicity to achieve a bright and airy floor plan. Vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, chef's kitchen and first floor master suite. Multiple covered outdoor spaces, guest house with bathroom, heated pool and spa with lush tropical landscaping provide the ultimate Island lifestyle. Convenient two car off-street parking, privacy wall and courtyard entrance invoke Caribbean luxury with Key West sensibility. A Sophisticated Casa Marina Treasure for the Discerning Buyer."
I dug deep into the old shoe box and found an ancient photo of the same house in 1965, see photo below. Compare that photo with the photo just below. It's hard to believe it is the same property, but it is. Except everything in the old house is all nice and new and just about the best money can buy. It is, however, more than money that makes this Casa Marina home so special. The rooms evoke a sense of space and easy-living life style. The multiple outdoor living areas invite you to venture outdoors where you can enjoy the good life.

My eyes were drawn past the interior to the pool area at the rear. I immediately saw the cool pool and outdoor kitchen but it was the small cottage to the right that caught my attention. The French doors were wide open and I saw this big muscle building machine that dominated the interior space. The cottage itself is the opposite of muscle: it is quite feminine and demur.
The Guest Cottage / Gym are located to the right of the pool
The view on the inside looking outside is quite distracting! But wonderful!
Wisteria wraps around the trellis framing the master bedroom
This home has outdoor living spaces in front, on the east side, and at the rear. There is an outdoor shower on the west side. Each space or view is just "ideal".

East side - alfresco dining
Rear - outdoor kitchen and pool area
If you find a need to go inside the rooms are spacious and bright. And only a few of the numerous windows even have drapes or coverings. The house is so private that drapes are not necessary. The beautiful gardens become part of the interior design. Spaces within the house are designed to take advantage of the outdoor views as well.
