Truman Annex townhome description

Located in one of Key West's most striking gated waterfront luxury neighborhoods, 'Foundry on the Waterfront' provides a unique opportunity to enjoy a modern luxury condominium constructed within an important piece of historic American architecture.

Situated along the gateway waterfront to the island of Key West, the magnificent brick structure that houses this residence was originally built around 1845 as an iron works at the then Fort Zachary Taylor Military Annex. Constructed in the impressive Spanish Colonial style, the clean and simple architectural lines of this period were originally designed to imbue a sense of civic pride. Even today this classic brick building evokes a sentimental remembrance about the U.S. when American democracy was in its infancy.

Creatively renovated in the 1990's by a local private developer, this beautiful Historic Foundry structure was re-designed as mid-rise condominium residences in what is now known as the residential neighborhood of 'Truman Annex'. This upscale island neighborhood was renamed for President Harry Truman who spent his winters in at the Annex at his home known as 'The Little White House.' His famous residence, which is now a museum, is just down the street from the 'Foundry on the Waterfront.'

The renovation of this Foundry property created an expansive modern condominium with high ceilings, few interior walls, lots of French windows and a graceful classic entrance. The front entrance is a private little manicured garden complete with roomy sitting porch. Double French doors painted white, with transom windows lead into the open air living room and galley kitchen. Extra high ceilings trimmed with wide crown molding and set in ceiling lights, create an uplifting effect. Classic wall molding, large marble tile floors and granite counter tops were added for a touch of luxurious elegance.

The tri-level design of this residence maximizes the use of space and creates privacy with three distinct living areas. The first floor of this residence is comprised of the living room, kitchen, and a powder room (half-bath) with designer fixtures. An eclectic grouping of furnishings blends a traditional and tropical motif. The addition of an artistic oversize ceiling fan, built with unique blades made fishing poles and canvas, offers extra breeze and anchors the decor. An elegant oak stair case with painted white risers leads to the stair landing made artistic with an archway.

The stair case continues to the second floor where you find the first spacious bedroom, and a full designer bath. The second floor also houses the conveniently located laundry center hidden behind closet doors. The stair case then leads to the third floor where you find the second spacious bedroom and a full second designer bathroom. Both bedrooms are carpeted and nicely furnished with a tropical motif. Each bedroom offers a queen size bed. Large windows in each bedroom allow you to invite the sunshine in and offer a nice view of the beautiful grounds below.

Kitty corner from the property is the resort-style heated swimming pool that is shared with the condominium complex. The heated pool, complete with lounge chairs for sunning and sipping, is just steps away, in a beautifully landscaped cabana pool garden area. Another wonderful feature of this residence is private designated parking which is located at the rear side of this property.

Grounds throughout the gated Truman Annex are park-like - exquisitely landscaped and manicured to picturesque perfection, making it a delightful neighborhood to walk and bicycle. From here you are just a few minutes walk to Duval St. and the center of downtown Old Town Key West. White picket fences, freshly clipped hedges, green grounds and fountains create an impressive back drop for your stroll. Original military officer?s homes, now renovated as large private luxury mansions, display both Italian and Greek Revival architectural styles.
