Just saying Key West, Florida, can conjure up relaxation and the easy-going life — so when we found this historical home in Old Town we knew that our readers would fall in love just like we did.
This home, which was built in the late 1800s, sits on a corner lot in Old Town — and if you’ve never been to the Old Town part of Key West, let’s just say it’s where all the action is. In fact, this home is close to the historic seaport and Duval Street.
A home this close to the best parts of Key West would also mean that when you’re not using it for your own relaxation, you could always make a killing in the short-term vacation rental market, given that the home has three floors of space that equates to four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms.
And the space is gorgeous. Flat out gorgeous. From the hardwood floors throughout, the 12-foot ceilings, the large windows and the period details throughout the house, this home has been lovingly maintained and artfully restored.
The first floor has a grand foyer, formal living, and dining rooms and an eat-in kitchen that is so bright and cheery you’ll love having it as the center of vacation activity.
The main level also opens to porches that afford beautiful views and plenty of shade, landscaped gardens and a patio with a heated and cooled pool. That outdoor space also includes an outdoor shower perfect for hosing off after sunbathing on the deck.
The second floor has two guest bedrooms and a master suite that opens to a private porch.
The third floor offers up a second living room with wet bar and a separate bedroom and bath with harbor views.
The listing agent is Roger Emmons of Truman Co., and this Key West home is listed for $2.9 million.
