823 Terry Lane, Key West - New to the Market

Real Estate Agent with Preferred Properties Key West


Just Listed, but not by me, 823 Terry Lane, Key West. The concrete front porch base and brick columns tell us that the house was updated about fifty years ago as those building elements were common then. I dug into my old shoebox and found a photo of this house that was taken in 1965.



The 1965 photo shows a wooden porch base with decorative wood rails and columns. The tree in the front was there then and is even large now. I searched the Historic Sanborn Fire Maps to see if I could determine an approximate time this building was built. I did see what looks like a smaller dwelling on the lot in the 1892 map. The 1899 map shows a longer structure that I believe is the current house. I mention this because our property records often provide erroneous construction dates. This house is shown as being built in 1933 or during the Depression. We know that it was not. 


The property records show the house as being 1,178 square feet in size plus a 152 square foot front porch. It has three bedrooms and two baths. The lot measures 22' X 96'. The house is 19' wide. There is space in the rear where a new property owner might be able to add a water feature. The adjoining property to the south and part of the rear is owned by the Key West Housing Authority. Don't let that scare you. The immediate space is parking. The residences are located on Whitehead Street. The houses and grounds are immaculately maintained. I found a photo I took of the pool area on the other side of the fence of 823 Terry Lane. That house (condo) just sold for $831,831 in 2021.



I wrote several blogs about the houses across the street that are a part of a small condominium association. This is a colorful street located two blocks from Duval and within easy walking distance to Fort Zachary Taylor State Park and Beach.

Hello Gary - your post reminds me of the tell tale signs that can be noticed all around us.  You show us that with the photos you share of Key West but it's sometimes quite easy to see when we look around our everyday life.

Good morning Gary. Your historical knowledge of Key West properties is truly amazing. Your shoebox of old photos must take up a whole room or rooms. Enjoy your day.

It is fun to read about the history of the houses in your posts.  Like Wayne Martin, I think that shoe box must be something.
