Private Homes, Old Town house description

Would you enjoy truly modern luxury within walking distance to Key West's best restaurants, clubs, and art galleries? If so, this is the vacation house for you! The Property consists of two separate houses. The Front House is available only.

Basking in the sun on the elevated private sundeck
Cooking in the ultramodern kitchen with Bosch and Sub-Zero appliances
Pampering in the elegant Bizazza Bathroom
Savoring dinner on the cobblestone patio

Enjoy Florida-living at its best with large window-walls that frame views of the zen-style garden, the deep water pool, and the heated spa. This beautiful garden features palm trees, bamboos and tropical foliage framing the dry creek and dry pond. In addition, off the Main Entrance is a petite courtyard in which sunlight filters through a monastery bamboo and Japanese privet onto the private granite patio.

The two-story home featuring ultramodern architecture designed by Searle Lamaster Howe of Chicago is unique to Key West. Located in Old Town, the structure is constructed of board-formed concrete and houses two bedrooms, two baths, a spacious living/dining room, and a private second floor sundeck with its own shower.

The interior has an open plan with soaring ceilings, elegant lighting and European appliances. It is furnished with European and Carribean furniture; the bedrooms have European Beech walls, and the bathrooms offer Italian marble and Bisazza tile walls and the latest European fixtures.

In back is a large rock-laden garden and patio with a generously sized pool and attached heated spa.
