Private Homes, Mid Town house description

Hidden behind an unassuming wall on a residential street in the casa marina east neighborhood is a very special estate, designed to be your own private oasis in key west. This one-story, three-bedroom home is surrounded by a lush tropical garden and has a vast patio and pool area in the very private backyard. Handsomely furnished, beautifully landscaped, and conveniently located (just steps from smathers beach), this home is truly “paradise perfected.”

The location…

The casa marina east district of old town key west is a quiet, mostly residential neighborhood on the southern side of the island. Just one block from the beginning of smathers beach off atlantic blvd, and just down the street from higgs beach, “paradise perfected” is a dream for beach-lovers who prefer to pack their coolers and towels and walk the few steps down to the sand and water. Watch the sunset from smathers beach or the white st pier just around the corner. Take the short stroll to salute for a beachside meal, or bike ride down to duval st or the historic seaport for the most popular key west attractions.

The pool & grounds…

As you enter through the door of the front wall facing the street, you will find a tropical garden with a brick walkway leading up to and around the sides of the house. Turn to your right and follow the house around to pass the outdoor shower, perfect for rinsing off after the beach. Keep walking around to the back yard to find one of the true highlights of this home. Several outdoor seating areas, both in the sun and in the shade, as well as comfortable chaise lounges and lovely tropical greenery surround a gorgeous architecturally designed heated pool. You can really live outside in this back yard, with plenty of space that gets great sunlight all day. When you’ve had enough sun, have a drink on the patio in the shade and cook a meal on the state-of-the art propane grill.

The living areas & kitchen...

This home is handsomely furnished, and the living area is certainly luxurious, with plenty of space to spread out. A huge flat-screen tv with surround sound speakers sits in front of beautiful, plush leather couches. The kitchen is just off the living area, with stainless steel appliances and all of the tools and equipment you will need to create a gourmet meal. The dining area is just across from the kitchen, with space for up to six diners at the dining table.

In the back of the house there is an office with a large sectional couch and a built in desk. This room has french doors that open up the back yard, creating a great open space to get some work done while enjoying the breeze. This room can also be converted to a fourth bedroom upon request.

The accommodations...

This one-story home has all three bedrooms on the first floor, yet they are spread out in a way that gives everyone in the house plenty of space. The master bedroom sits off the wing off of the kitchen/dining area, on the opposite end of the house from the other two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen bed, a large flat-screen tv, plenty of dresser and closet space, and a ceiling fan. The master bathroom is en-suite, with a floating glass sink and beautiful tile & glass shower.

The second and third bedrooms are located on a wing on the opposite side of the dining/living area. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed, a large flat screen tv, plenty of dresser and closet space, and a ceiling fan. The third bedroom has a queen sized bed, a flat screen tv, and a ceiling fan. These two bedrooms share the hall bathroom, which is a very unique design. The bathroom has dual sinks and mirrors set over a “floating” cabinet. Pass through to the shower, which is tiled with stone and has a rainfall showerhead. There is a door leading directly from the shower out to the pool area, perfect for washing off after a swim or a day at the beach.

The amenities...

Top of the line washer & dryer in separate, functional laundry room with sink, central heat and a/c, ceiling fans in every room, gated & lushly landscaped backyard with private heated pool, propane bbq grill, flat screen cable tvs in living room & all bedrooms, gourmet kitchen, linens and towels provided. Interim housekeeping provided upon request. Wireless high-speed internet access. This property will accommodate up to 8 adults with the conversion of the office to a fourth bedroom upon request.
