Just behind the curving waterfront of Key West's picturesque harbor lies the 19th century Historic Seaport District of this once great trade center. It is here where grand wooden homes built by seafaring merchant's line the narrow island streets punctuated with blocks of white picket fences with capital posts. Today the history of this unique architecture is often under-appreciated.
Most do not realize that the bravest of these early home builders were 1700's British loyalist settlers of the Bahamas, who created an established sailing route between sleepy Green Turtle Bahamas and the bustling island of Key West. During the ensuing 150 years, many of these settlers gradually relocated to Key West (sometimes moving their houses with them), and in the process established unique architectural roots that still bind the two islands together.
This Spectacular large estate home is a beautiful representation of Key West - Bahamian architecture, and a center piece of this Old Town Key West neighborhood. Built as a 19th century single family, a recent renovation completely restored the original exterior of the house and modernized the interior to divide it into 3 spacious upscale suites.
The interior renovation was thoughtfully re-designed to create a luxury private inn style vacation residence for families, corporate groups, or smaller groups that want to be in the same location, yet have their privacy. The entire interior of this Old Town Key West property was given an upscale make over. Into the charm of this spacious Victorian home, the interior designer introduced new bamboo hardwood flooring, marble tile, granite counter tops, ambient lighting, high-end appliances and fixtures, and contemporary island furnishings and appointments.
The new modern layout was designed to function ideally as a luxury accommodation for a larger single group, or as the perfect configuration for a smaller group who appreciates more space and privacy. It also has an added advantage of 3 separate galley style kitchens!
INTERIOR LAY OUT:
DOWNSTAIRS - FRONT:
The front door entrance of the home leads you to the "Green Turtle Suite" that encompasses the front-third-downstairs of the Key West - Bahama Estate. This beautiful space provides 1 bedroom with a queen bed, 1 full bathroom, and a large living room open to a fully equipped kitchen.
The living room has multiple sets of French doors on the south side wall that open to beautifully landscaped gardens complete with a large sun deck and large swimming pool. The bedroom, with queen-sized bed, is located just off the living room. The living room has a queen-sized sleeper sofa.
DOWNSTAIRS - BACK:
Completely hidden from the street, "Abaco Suite" encompasses the back two-thirds of the first floor of the Key West - Bahama Estate. This elegant space provides 2 spacious bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, large living room, and fully equipped kitchen. The master bedroom offers a King-size bed and the second bedroom offers a Queen-size bed.
This part of the home has a private entrance on the north side of the house. Once inside the spacious living room, open beamed ceilings that are over 12 feet high and painted bright white give an uplifting feel.
UPSTAIRS - 2ND FLOOR:
We call the second floor of our classic revival Key West Bahama Estate the "Topsail Suite". This offers a spacious 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom hideaway that encompasses the entire second floor of the home. This charming "loft suite" offers a birds-eye view of beautiful Frances Street in the Key West Historic Seaport District.
A "ship's ladder" style staircase leads to the over-sized "stand up" loft bedroom, creating a 3rd floor effect. This bedroom has two twin beds that can be pushed together to make a king bed. A wooden railing creates an atrium view from which you can look down at the living room area. The galley kitchen, which also opens to the porches, has a pass through window connecting it with the living room.
The second bedroom, which has a queen size bed, and the full bathroom are just off the hall from the living room. The living room adjoins a classic Victorian wrap around porch that loops from the front of the house to the side, to overlook the landscaped deck and large swimming pool below.
Tasteful furnishings throughout this property are modern-tropical. Earth tone tropical wicker, bamboo, leather, and wood furnishings create a relaxed and inviting island breeze ambience.
Bedding Summary: First Floor Front: 1 queen size bed, 1 queen sleeper sofa. First Floor Back: 1 king size bed, 1 queen size bed, 1 queen sleeper sofa. Second Floor: 1 queen size bed, 2 twin beds (can be made into a king bed), 1 queen sleeper sofa.
The property grounds are fenced all the way around in the front and back for privacy. The side and back yard is decked with a huge deck creating a wonderful indoor / outdoor living room for private entertaining complete with very large swimming pool (on the south side) and private cocktail / exercise pool off the back suite on the north side. Beautiful landscaping creates a romantic tropical setting. Large porches that wrap from the front of the home to the south side create additional gorgeous sitting areas to view the grounds and watch the world go by. The home has beautiful curb appeal located in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the Key West Historic Seaport neighborhood.
