Just Listed, 11 Nassau Lane, Key West. I have written several blogs about the buyers who fell in love with 11 Nassau Lane and this little house even before we made it to the inside. This was the first and only house these buyers looked at. It was love at first sight. That was fifteen years ago. And now this home is available for purchase.
The owners believe this home was built circa 1860 just before the start of the Civil War. Although this home has been updated and expanded, the Dade County Pine walls in the living room and kitchen are extra wide boards which are indicative of very old growth wood. The previous owner replaced the original floors, remodeled the kitchen and bath, added French doors to the side and rear bedroom.
The current owners converted the main floor bedroom at the rear into a den. Today there is a sleeper sofa that opens for visitors from the frozen north. The prior owner had a Murphy Bed in this space which worked well for his needs. I think visitors won't willingly want to leave this Garden of Eden view. There are over 50 orchids in the garden which convey with purchase of the house.
Several years ago the current owners added a second floor bedroom and bathroom plus covered rear porch and and created a love nest in the process. Who wouldn't fall in love with a treetop space this precious? The vaulted ceiling with skylights, sharp repetitive angles plus contrasting natural and painted woods are juxtaposed to the expansive open views of the surrounding trees and blue sky. As the photographer was snapping photos of this space, I noticed strands of shells suspended on the porch. They shimmered like gems. Yes. They shimmered like gems. Precious gems.
