The single family home at 1111 Watson Street#D is located in a compound in the South of Truman area or Old Town Key West was recently listed at just $359,900. The house is Bank Owned. This might be the bargain property you have been waiting to find.
The home is located at the end of a meandering brick pathway that winds through lush tropical foliage past the other cottage style homes in this compound. The shared swimming pool and spa are located just to the front of this home. I had not been to this compound before this past Saturday. I was immediately taken by the quaintness of the compound. The gardens and open spaces are immaculate.
The meandering pathway leads to the front door past the community pool
The home is, as bank owned properties often are, in need of some TLC. A good scrubbing and a new coat of paint would do wonders to this house that sold in 2007 for $700,000. I looked at the listing photos of when the house was last offered for sale and can easily understand how it sold at the high price point: it was really charming. It can be again. The photos I took were snapped quite quickly and Saturday was a rainy day in Key West. So my pics will likely seem more depressing than impressive. I urge buyers to judge the place in person and see what a bargain this home might be.
The listing Realtor describes the listing this way:

The mls states the home has 1137 sq ft of living space under air and sits on a 2967 sq ft lot. The house is basically a 35' x 29' box plus some additional spaces that add dimension and variety that make this house really unique. Two of the features that come to mind are the wall of French doors in the living area that open out to a private garden area and the once amazing bath with an indoor/outdoor shower that lets you shower under under the sun and the stars.

The agent says this house does not have off street parking, however the prior mls does show that parking is included. This is something to verify if interested. Other units do have parking as well.
