Preferred Properties Coastal Realty, Inc. listed 811 Washington Street Unit #103 as a Short Sale. The listing agent, not me, describes the property thus:
"Perfectly situated in the heart of the Casa Marina district is this truly beautiful 3-story townhome. Cathedral ceilings and custom-cut Carlisle Lumber pine floors welcome you to this quality home perfect for year round living. Bright & open great room, gourmet kitchen with stainless Viking appliances & granite counters, spacious bedrooms with en-suite marble baths and private balconies. Fenced for privacy, this elegant townhome boasts a private bricked patio with native tropical landscaping, relaxing pool & a rear entrance. This townhome comes with one deeded, bricked off-street parking space. Close to Duval Street but in a very quiet residential neighborhood."
Even though this small development was not completed until 2007 the landscaping is lush and mature. The front is maintained by the homeowners association and it looks really great. Like so many Key West houses, this place is built with the indoor and outdoor living areas in mind. The interior living area looks out to the private 8' x 13'pool and garden area at the rear. That area is lush with greenery and the pool is so cool and inviting. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet on this Key West short sale.
The developer built just nine town home units. They are all alike as far as construction, layout, cabinets, appliances, bathroom fixtures, etc. The end units, such as this unit, have extra windows on the east wall as this is an end unit. This gives the living room a bit more daytime light. Note the photos below which were taken inside another unit that show the kitchen layout, the master bedroom with vaulted ceiling and rear second floor balcony that overlooks the pool below. The second bedroom is on the second floor at the front of the house. Also see the photo of the third floor bedroom. Each bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom. And there is guest bath located just off the living area on the first floor. This town home has 2240 sq ft of living space on three floors. There are front and rear balconies on the first and second floors. The interiors feature crown molding, real wood floors, expensive interior trim and high end amenities. And, of course, all of this and the Casa Marina location make this an outstanding value in this price range.
I live in the Casa Marina Area and I love it. Houses in this area are close to the beaches and and easy jaunt to Old Town. Many full time residents live in this area whereas many of the single family homes in Old Town are part time residences. For this reason I think the Casa Marina area is more of a community than Old Town, but that is just my opinion. I know others will disagree. Most of the houses in the Casa Marina area are priced over a million dollars so the prospect for long term appreciation on your investment in the Casa Marina area home will likely prove successful in years to come. You can get to the airport or out to Searstown or the Winn Dixie in about 6 or 7 minutes. Most of the commercial activity in the Casa Marina Area is limited to White Street and runs only three blocks south of Truman. We've got a sweet little ocean front restaurant called Salute on the Beach where you can wine and dine al fresco while you watch the sunset.
There are fewer and fewer properties available with this kind of location and this low of a price.
