Private Homes, Old Town house description

'Casa Blanca 1888' has everything you could want for your stay in Old Town Key West. Its central location in historic Old Town at White Street and Truman Avenue means you will be just steps from the White Street art gallery district, restaurants, grocery stores, Yoga studios and the Coffee Mill. Its size and layout mean that no one will feel crowded. This historic two story home, built circa 1888, was renovated a few years ago and magically holds its historic appeal while feeling incredibly modern and comfortable inside.

THE LIVING AREA...

Fine cherry flooring compliments the original Dade County pine walls that you will find throughout this house. The 19th century is complimented by the 21st century in the kitchen, with custom cabinets, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances including a double door refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, glass top stove, microwave and garbage disposal. Every cooking utensil is provided to prepare gourmet feasts for a group and the breakfast bar is the perfect place to sit while watching someone else do the cooking.

If you decide not to go out on the town, you can always watch the 42 inch flat screen plasma TV with DVD/CD/Surround Sound. The dining table sits six comfortably. The step-down Florida room overlooks the gardens and pool. A full bathroom on the main floor features a shower and is convenient to use while enjoying the large heated pool and tropical gardens. There are 4 porches, upstairs and downstairs, so there’s plenty of personal space available.

THE POOL AREA...

The back yard has to be seen. In a town where any yard at all is a blessing, this home has a huge back yard and pool area. The pool is very large as well, with areas of sun and shade to keep everyone happy. There are two different dining areas and plenty of chaises. There is also a private outdoor shower to rinse off after the beach or pool.

The master bedroom, with a king bed and in-suite bathroom, has double French doors that open to a private back deck. The third bedroom features a king bed.
