Just Listed 923 Angela Street, Key West, Florida. This storybook cottage is located on a quiet one-way land in the Old Town Historic District within easy walking or biking distance to Duval Street and the Historic Seaport. You may have seen this house in my blog before as it, like many of our other little houses, has been sold and re-sold several times over the years. Each successive owner has done this and that to improve the simple wooden house.
I dug down into my old shoebox and found the black and white photo taken in 1965 and the color photo just below which was dated 1986. The most recent owners did a thorough restoration of the property for which they were awarded the Historic Florida Keys Foundation 2017 Ceramic Star for Historic Preservation. That included replacement of piers, new kitchen, two new full baths, pool addition, and upgrading the interiors.
The new white kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances harmoniously blends with the traditional conch cottage. The Dade County Pine walls were restored and sealed. New wood floors added. Ceiling and trim work painted crisp white. Everything works!
This home has two bedrooms and two full bath rooms including the guest room located at the rear. French panel doors open out to the lanai where the new heated pool and waterfall sit amidst illuminated and irrigated tropical foliage.
The backyard, pool area, and outdoor shower are totally private. The houses on either side are one-story and do not have a view of the rear nor does the property to the rear. A new owner can be as free as he or she or they please.
Dormers were added to the second floor of the original house thereby creating a cute little office area with hidden storage plus a full bath worthy of inclusion in a home decor magazine.
The private roof-top sun deck is the topping on the cake so to speak. What a great little place to relax - and it's just that nearer to heaven.
