10 Lowes Ln Key West, Florida - Just Listed

Real Estate Agent with Preferred Properties Key West


Just Listed by Laurie McChesney at Preferred Properties Key West - 10 Lowes Lane. This will sell fast so move fast down this slow lane or you will lose your chance. There a lots of lurkers out there waiting to pounce. 


First, I did not misspell the name of the lane. There are several spellings including Lowe Lane, Lowes Lane, Lowe's Lane. All are correct. The mailman and UPS driver will find you. Lowe''s Ln is located adjacent to 525 Grinnell Street or two buildings north of Southard Street. 

The house is located at the far end of the lane and next to the rear gated entry to a much larger estate type property that fronts onto Southard Street. I dug into my old shoebox and found a photo of the house taken in 1965. Notice the screened-in front porch and door at the rear. Compare that view to the photo at the top. The porch has been captured and is now a part of the interior. That increased the interior space to 1360 Sq Ft on two floors. The lot measures 2458 Sq FT which includes a nice pool with deck at the rear, a carport, and open space on the side. Let's look.




Even though the porch is gone, the door is still in the same location. The space is kind of odd and could be improved. The house has window units and cool just fine for now. 


The first floor has new flooring and the makings of a new kitchen. New cabinets were delivered as were new appliances. A new owner can install or do something different.



There are two good sized bedrooms on the second floor separated by the entry landing and shared bathroom. The second floor is move-in ready. It may not look it, but it really is. Or it could be renovated but that would not be required.

The bedroom photos show you the Dade Count y Pine walls and ceiling plus vents that were used in olden days to allow hot air to escape upward. Today air conditioning does that trick. 





The owners have architectural plans by Matthew Stratton to expand the living space and change the house a bit. Matthew is one  of the two premiere local architects in Key West. 

House across the lane

The Historic Seaport is located about three long blocks to the right and the end of the lane. Duval Street is a short stroll via Southard or Fleming Street. Five Brothers is up on the corner. Old Own Bakery is a block to the north. What more could you want

Hello Gary - during anytime in real estate, truly ready-now buyers need to respond on a timely basis.  And that's especially true when times are more competitive or when a rare property makes its appearance.  A nice look through your shoebox.  Enjoy your rest, relaxation and respite from realty (and perhaps reality too).

Interesting building and photos as always. I like the idea of the vents to let the heat escape - I hadn't ever heard of that before.

Enjoy your R&R
