We partner with over 1000 Sotheby’s real estate offices in 71 countries. Each month we showcase a home from one of these partners. Our feature home this month is located in Key West, Florida.
Geographically, the Florida Keys are utterly unique – a chain of 1,700 small, semi-tropical islands arching over 100 miles from Key Largo to Key West, connected by a series of bridges along Highway US Highway 1. With incredible access to a variety of water, the Keys are a natural destination for aquatic enthusiasts who enjoy boating, paddling, fishing, diving, snorkeling, and more. Key West, Florida’s southern-most point, is a popular vacation-home market for people around the world. They are attracted to its alluring lifestyle that promises good times, balmy weather, and a laid-back charm and can only be found in the Keys.
This three bedroom, two and a half bathroom home is located in the heart of Old Town Key West. When historical integrity combines with modern construction and award-winning architecture, the result is a rare work of art. Originally built in the 1800s, it recently underwent a ground-up and extremely high-quality renovation.
The home’s history was kept intact whenever possible. When it came to the structure, modern conveniences, beauty, and functionality, all were improved and rebuilt to the highest standards. The bright, open first-floor living space is lovely for entertaining.
Shiplap along the staircase and throughout the second floor is a charming reflection of this home’s original, nautical character. Superbly located just three blocks to the water and all the incredible amenities and attractions Key West has to offer. Walking around this picturesque Old Town neighborhood is an attraction on its own.
The second-story porch offers a bit more privacy for total relaxation and an ideal vantage point for enjoying the surrounding views. A private driveway with room for multiple vehicles makes off-street parking a breeze. Listed for $1,149,900.
