908 Washington Street, Key West - Just Listed

By
Real Estate Agent with Preferred Properties Key West


Just Listed - 908 Washington Street Key West. This --- three bedroom, two bath mid-century home located in the Casa Marina Area will like sell this week. It is in original condition and might benefit from a good update - but not in need of anything substantial in cost or scope. A buyer seeking a renovation property should take a look immediately. I saw it this morning and two potential buyers were to look after I left.

 

 


This is not located in HARC and could be razed and a new home built on the 93' X 60' lot. Author Judy Blume used to own the house next door to the east and also the one across the street to the west. This is the only house on the block that has not been updated. The interior is 1,988 Sq Ft. There is room at the rear to add a pool. Let's take a brief photo tour of the inside.

 

 

 

 

The floors are in great condition. Note the acoustic tile ceiling. They appear throughout the house. That is a brick wall behind the media center with a fake fireplace. The center hall leads to the bedrooms and laundry rooms.

 

 

The master bedroom (top photo) has an en-suite bath typical of the time - small. But the bedroom is quite large. The two guest bedrooms share a bath. Both guest bedrooms are also large. There is no central air. Instead there are wall units in each room.

 

 

 

This is definitely a mid-century home - it has a formal dining area and original kitchen with Formica counters. But it is all clean and in move-in condition. 

 

 

If you look back up at the black and white photo you will see a garage on the right side of the house. The garage was converted into a family room several years ago is pictured above. The laundry room is located behind the wood panel wall and has a door that opens into the center hallway. 

 

 

The right rear side yard has ample roof for a pool and patio. Both the left and right side yards are quite large as is the back yard (but it is not large enough for a pool. I think a new owner might relocate the living room to where the master bedroom and family room are now. New doors would bring more light into the house  and make the spaces meet the way we live today. I would probably relocate the dated kitchen to that side as well. The present dining room and kitchen could then become the master suite with larger bath. CLICK HERE to view more photos.

Hello Gary - I just did a quick online search and Judy Blume is still with us - perhaps she could write a real estate-related book, "Hello Wise Investors, It's Me, Opportunity" about 908 Washington Street in Key West Florida.
