Private Homes, Mid Town house description

Relax poolside on a private deck, enjoying the bougainvillaea draped over the masonry privacy fence. Banana trees and many variety of palm offer shade to the house and gardens. The house has been remodeled in the last 5 years with an enormous great room and new windows that allow breezes to enter the house. The kitchen is a chef's delight with a six-burner Vulcan commercial stove. Meals can be enjoyed under the covered lanai or in the dining area off the kitchen. Book shelves holding hundred of books line the dinning room and are available for your reading delight. The bedrooms are comfortable with a new king bed in the master bedroom and two full beds in the second bedroom. The bathroom has just been totally redone with a new custom tile shower, ceramic tile floors and walls. The house is clean and simply decorated. If you need secure parking for your motorcycle or bike, it is available in the driveway behind a security fence. The beach is a mere 4 block walk as are the tennis courts. If life gets too relaxing a one-mile bike ride to Duval Street offers world class restaurants, plays, movie theater and a limitless selection of bars. During the summer and fall an attached (but totally private) bedroom (large) and bathroom can also be rented with the main house.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1992

                  About the owner: We have lived in Key West since 1992. We have moved out of the area to pursue work opportunities in a large city. Our plan is to return to the island for retirement. I am sure that you will find the tropical and private digs, calming to your spirit but close enough to Duval and beach for major fun.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Mid Town:
                  Read our reviews...we go out of our way to provide a clean house with pool, private decks, complete kitchen and plenty of space to relax.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The sun is almost up. Catch sunrise over the water standing on White Street Pier. Walk down White for some Cuban Coffee and order breakfast at one of the restaurants suggested on the visitor's guide in the house. By now you're exhausted...it's pool time and you need a bit of a nap. During a late lunch at the house, your eye catches some reading in the dining room library. The afternoon is devoted to the beach or visiting the sights. A quick dip in the pool refreshes and a rinse in our new outdoor but private shower finishes the effort. Friends are coming over for a poolside barbeque. After dinner it is a short ride to the Red Barn Theater for a play. Dessert for the day is some of the best ice cream you can imagine followed by a short bike ride home to enjoy the balmy weather and burn a few of those guilt ridden calories. You lie in a bed with the french doors open to the pool and fall asleep in record time...dreaming of tomorrow's adventure.
