Truman Annex house description
If you’ve been searching for a private home overlooking the tropical turquoise sea, you’ve probably found that nearly all water-view vacation rental properties on Key West are hotels, condominiums, or time-shares, and that it’s nearly impossible to find a private Key West house that offers both an open water view plus easy beach access. But . . . this unique accommodation is a rare exception to that rule! With this property you’ve now discovered your option to choose a private Key West house that provides a beautiful open sea view, is right next to Key West’s very best beach (Fort Zachary Taylor), and is only a few short walking streets from the heart of downtown Old Town.
Holding an enviable perch in Old Town Key West’s up-scale gated community named “Truman Annex,” this charm-charged historic neighborhood was named for President Harry Truman who spent his winters in the Annex neighborhood at his presidential home known as 'The Little White House.' His famous residence is now a museum and if you look on a map you’ll see it’s just a ‘hop-skip-and-a-jump’ from this vacation home we call ‘By The Beautiful Sea.’
Fashionably tucked behind a white picket fence at the end of a quiet street, this ‘beach-style’ home combines island living with luxury and simplicity in precisely the right way. Drawing from classic Key West architecture, everything about this property celebrates authentic tropical island life in a casual yet up-scale style. Wide sitting porches with white picket railings, capital topped porch posts, sash hung windows, French doors, and shiny tin roofs all reflect the essence of island charm. Traditional wooden siding painted a sunny yellow color trimmed with bright white creates a perfect backdrop for the lush green tropical landscaping and towering palm trees living around the property.
The open sea view of the Gulf of Mexico is the center stage of this property. This is a rare location for a private home and from the second floor you have your own unobstructed view point from which to enjoy sea gazing, sunning, and to watch the famous sunsets of Key West. Multiple sets of double French doors open to the back on both the 2nd and 1st floors. This home was designed with an ‘upside down floor plan.’ Use of this architectural style maximizes the stunning view of the sea which can be enjoyed from the entire great-room (living room / kitchen / dining room) as well as the spacious 2nd floor exterior deck.
Furnishings throughout the home carry the simple yet luxurious beach-style theme with the use of fine wicker and bamboo, accessorized with whimsical lamps and nautical and island theme art work. Walls throughout are painted white, with soft goods and bedding done in blue and lime-green tones.
The back of the 1st floor of the property offers a private dipping pool and sunning patio made private with tall fences and lush landscaping. A revered feature of private covered off-street parking is provided at the front of the property. A variety of tropical landscaping and palm trees grace the property all the way around. The front of the property has an alluring beach-style appeal and is outlined with quintessential Key West white picket fences.
Grounds throughout the gated ‘Truman Annex’ complex are park-like, exquisitely landscaped and manicured to picturesque perfection, making it a delightful neighborhood to walk and bicycle. Just out the gate towards the ocean is Fort Zachary Taylor, now a State Park with one of the nicest beaches on Key West. You are also just a few minutes walk to Duval St. and the center of downtown Old Town Key West.
1st Floor – 1 king size bed; 1 full (double) size bed; 1 trundle bed (can be made as 2 twin beds or 1 king bed).
2nd Floor – 1 full (double) size bed. Elevator from 2nd floor bedroom to 1st floor entrance way. Bathroom is handicap accessible.
