Just Listed: 1302 Reynolds Street, Key West. This smart looking 2/2 is move-in ready and priced to sell. Offered at $1,150,000. Let's take a look outside and then sneak a peek inside.
The house sits at the corner of Reynolds and United Streets. A white picket fence with gated entrance entrance welcomes visitors into this unexpected treasure.
I had searched through my old shoebox for historic photos of the house. I could not find any. I found photos of nearby houses and then realized the house originally faced United Street and that the enclosed east side porches and deck expansion re-oriented the house toward the east and that the address was changed to Reynolds Street. Upon seeing the house in person I saw a gate on United Street on the west side of the house with steps that led up to a new wood wall with no doorway. The interior space on the opposite side of where the doorway was is now the kitchen. The practical affect is that the interior is more functional, the original front facade is replaced by a bay window in the new dining room, and new entrance on the east if charming and expansive.
South facing French doors open out from the living area to a covered loggia with bar-b-que grill and spa not far aside. One of the two bedrooms each with bathroom can be seen in the photo above. Each room in this house has tall ceilings compared to many of the houses in Old Town. Tall men will feel comfortable here.
A side porch became a part of the interior and a bay window replaced what would have been the original front porch. The kitchen is cheerful and practical. It provides an open living concept which includes the now enclosed porch and the living room. There is not any wasted space with hallways. The 1020 sq ft of living space is real living space. The guest bedroom has a door that opens out to the west side of the house. I noticed the west property line fence was just replaced and that the house appears to be freshly painted. The windows were replaced and all openings have shutters. The main decks are TREX Decks. The west side deck is wood.
The house does not have parking or a pool. But there is ample parking on Reynolds Street and there is more than ample swimming available six blocks south at the Atlantic Ocean. Guests can walk to upper Duval Street in about five to seven minutes. There is a gym on Truman Avenue and numerous small shops and restaurants on White and Truman. I sold the house next door twice. It was a successful vacation rental for the previous owners. This property could be equally successful as a vacation rental, however, the current owner does not rent it.
