Just listed by Preferred Properties, that's where I work but this is not my listing, 1320 Grinnell Street in the Casa Marina area of Key West. The listing Realtor describes the chic new listing this way:
"Situated in the heart of the Casa Marina, is this meticulously designed contemporary 2 story 2 bedroom 2 1/2 bath main building with a separate two story guest cottage. Superb finishes provide the ideal indoor and outdoor Key West Living space. As you enter you are greeted by a spacious living/dining area with an ultra-modern kitchen. Large glass sliding doors reveal the infinity pool and lanai complete with an outdoor gas fireplace. On the second level is a guest suite and sitting area with an entertainment center overlooking the lush landscaping and pool. The separate cottage contains a living area and loft style bedroom with a shower bath all opening to the pool."
Then she adds "This is not a drive by." Amen to that!
As soon as you cross the threshold you instantly become aware that this is no ordinary residence. The house is populated with large rooms with open spaces but also little niches that evoke a sense of something semi-sacred. There is a fluidity that beckons the first time visitor to quickly move from point to point to see what might possibly be next. The views of the pool and garden (designed by Key West landscape architect Craig Reynolds) beckon those on the inside to go out to the pool. Once outside the view of the inside is equally enticing. Something extraordinary must be going on inside. Nothing is static. This house had endless possibilities.
The pool and gardens seem to flow into the living area. When you go out to the guest cottage the doors and view there seem to draw the guest to go back outside.
View from inside the guest house shower. Time for a dip?
I'll bet you figured out the small building is the guest cottage. That's easy. Are you wondering what is located upstairs to the left? Do you suppose that is the master suite? If so, what is the behind the rail on the second level? And what is going on with the waterfall to the left?

The Casa Marina area is known for its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, the nearby beaches, and a wide variety of architectural styles that blend into a welcoming neighborhood. Unlike the Conch Cottages, Grand Conch Houses, and Eyebrow Houses that populate most of Old Town, the Casa Marina area has a pluralism of architectural styles. There are some historic homes, many mid century homes, a few candidates for demolition or renovation, and some estate properties. Most of the homes in the Casa Marina area are priced over one million dollars, but there is the occasional bargain home that is small or a place that needs some updating. And then there are homes like the fabulous house located directly opposite 1320 Grinnell Street that was featured in Architectural Digest in July, 2010.
I took more photos which you can see if you CLICK HERE. If you want to see some incredible nighttime photos, you must CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet and listing photos. 1320 Grinnell Street has 2657 sq ft of living space under air. The grounds are 74'x80' or 5992 sq ft. The home is offered at $2,200,000.
