Just Listed by Preferred Properties Key West, 1409 12th Street, Key West, Florida. Longtime readers of my blog know I am a nut for old photos of our little town. I remembered an aerial photo taken in 1999 by Ty Symroski and Wendy Tucker to which I added a couple of notes showing today's property and its location. Today the big green fields are a bit more developed. The big open green space in the middle is now the site of the recently relocated Poinciana Elementary School. The old school buildings behind the open space were razed after the new school was built and are now a part of the huge baseball field complex. I mention this for good reason: if you have a kid, school is one block away. If you shop, our three shopping centers are within a two minute car drive excluding times when Roosevelt Boulevard is clogged with tourists coming to town to spend gobs of money. If you're into working out, the new Anytime Fitness is just three blocks away.
The listing Realtors describe 1409 12th Street, Key West this way:
"Meticulous craftsmanship runs throughout this 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home. The kitchen has gorgeous cherry wood cabinets, stainless appliances, granite counter tops and a pantry. Triple glass sliding doors off the living room and master with high ceilings and sky lights throughout bring the outdoors in! A rich wood decked porch overlooks the large in ground pool which has heat and a waterfall. Lots of privacy and lots of storage! Off street covered parking for two cars."
As soon as I entered this home I was taken by how clean and fresh it felt. I don't say that often. I have been in too many houses with the odors of dogs, cats, and exotic cuisines. Bring to this house whatever it is you love. But you won't have to clean and paint this place before you move.
The living areas are on the right side of the house. The two guest bedrooms are on the left followed by a wet bar with skylight above. The middle bedroom has a Murphy Bed and desk niche. The master bedroom and bath are at the rear where sliding glass doors open out to the rear deck and pool below.
The house has 1511 square feet of living space on one floor. The interiors and exterior are clean as can be. There is no work to be done. This is the kind of place a buyer seeking a second home for the winter ought to consider. You could lock and leave it. We have plenty of pool people to take care of pools. The front and rear "landscaping" will require minimal attention.
Compare the size and quality of this home to condos or townhomes in the Truman Annex where the current least expensive property is a 513 square foot one bedroom one bath condo priced at $590,000 or $1,150 per square foot. 1409 12th Street is offered at $430 per square foot. You could take a lot of Ubers to Old Town with all the money you would be saving and you wouldn't have to share the pool with people staying in the 170 other condos.
