Meadows house description
This old Key West Victorian Style house with soaring ceilings, bay windows, lots of light, is a great place to relax and enjoy Key West. Grab a drink, hang out by the pool, soak your feet, get some sun.
Our home sits on a DOUBLE lot (Gorgeous Gardens) in the Meadows of old town. We are walking/biking distance to everything including the famous Duval street, although we enjoy a quieter side of Key west here on Olivia st and the very desirable Meadows!
There are two front entrances connected by a wrap around porch overlooking the very private and extensive gardens.
Upon entering our house you will be surprised to find room after room of gracious wood floors and original Dade county pine wood walls and windows everywhere.
The first room you enter into will be the parlor complete with a Baby Grand Piano. It has a wonderful sound and is great for playing and an impromptu sing-a-long.
Off the parlor find the built in colunmed entryway to the formal dining room. You can comfortably seat 12 for dinner and has fabulous reclaimed Dade county walls and mouldings.
Just off the dining room you will find a third bedroom/den with a Full Fouton and and a full marble bath.
To the left and facing the rear of the home is the family room just off the parlor double doors with a flat screen TV and French Doors to the pool and covered rear deck. There is plenty of furniture to lounge around on and check out your favorite show. You can also step out onto the wrap-around deck in the backyard, which wraps around the pool and spa. Or hang on the edge of the pool side in a cozy hammock.
The last two rooms on the first floor are the country kitchen and the outdoor living space. The kitchen is enormouse space. It has a large center island with granite counter tops. Plenty of storage space, All the appliances are stainless steel, wtih a commercial grade Viking stove, dishwasher, Sub-zero refrigerator / freezer with an ice maker, plenty of dinnerware, glasses, and cooking utensils.
As with all of the rooms in this home there are loads of windows and light!!
Off the kitchen is the main entrance to the two level deck, covered living space, pool, spa, and grill. There is plenty of space to lounge around, chill in the pool, or read a good book. This space is absolutley delightful with two levels of covered decking and we often us this as our main living area in the home!! The rear yard has mature landscaping and shade trees and lots of privacy. The pool is a natural salt water pool and feels delicious to swim in! The back yard is surrounded by large protected trees and filters the strong Florida sun with gorgeous vines and plants and a very calming tropical feel.
Also off the kitchen there is an entrance / exit to the off street parking / covered carport. There is a large wooden fence that surrounds the entire back yard with a keyed entry to the carport. This will also be a convenient access for bringing in groceries and deliveries.
A step-back staircase allows for additional light and a beutiful focal point to the center of the house...
On the second floor you will find two bedrooms with two beds, and two bathrooms. The bedroom over the downstairs parlor is large and bright with even more Dade County Pine. It has plenty of windows and light in this bay windowed room, a dresser, love seat and a fantastic armoire with a King bed. The first bathroom is just outside this bedroom. This bathroom has a toilet, tub, shower, and two pedestal sinks. Plus a cool tile floor.
The second bedroom overlooks the pool and has a deck that wraps around to the back side of the house. There you will find a beautiful key west style bathroom covered with slate and wrapped in plantaton type shutters. And on those cool breezy nights you can open up the french doors and shutters and listen to mother nature while you sleep. These doors can also connect to the bath. It is surrounded by wooden louvered panels that can be opened for the breeze, and cool tile and slate work. It has a large sink, toilet, bidet, and stand up shower. It's a great way to wake up, check the weather, and get on with your day.
Off the central hall is a large walk-in closet. You will find plenty of storage space in here. The walk in closet leads us back to the common area on the second floor. There is also a full laundry room with washer and dryer.
Although not included in the Bed count there is also a bonus room sleeping porch off of the center hall. This is completely enclosed floor to ceiling by Louvered plantation type shutters and has a another day bed. The house utilities are below this room.
Finally, the third floor. Access to the third level is a captains ladder from the second floor. Once up this steep climb, you will find a very large room with two twin beds and a fantastic sundeck with fabulous rooftop views. It really is beutiful and well finished with pickled dade county walls along with the fabulous sun deck but again we just consider this a bonus area and not included in the bed count!
The home is really very majestic with a victorian flare from the Turreted front roof line to the fabulous wrap around porches and mouldings. This home sits on a rare double lot with mature landscaping and truly fabulous outdoor living spaces!! The house boasts two indoor living rooms and the outdoor living area is a massive outdoor Lanai. It has a main level with comfortable couches and chairs right next to the salt water pool and surrounded by mature landscaping. As a bonus, there is a second raised deck done in Teak wood and is delightful to have a relaxed dinner or meal...
All appliances are modern including a Viking stove, a Sub-zero refrigerator, a huge island with granite and beautiful wood cabinets, and loads of windows with Large french doors to the Lanai!
The home has 2 zone A/C. The garden and pool are maintaned by professionals.
Our home is a MONTHLY spring/summer/fall rental only.
That concludes the tour. Thank-you.

We decided to buy this house in the Meadows because it has a more residential neighborhood feel to it. Are other home in Key West was only three blocks from Duval Street. It was a lot busier and way to noisy. The location we chose is still close to everything, we never use our car and walk/bike everywhere. We are still at Old Towne but just not on top of all the guest houses and Bars. A very serene and beautiful small section in town called the Meadows and we were very lucky to have found a property available!!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
A few other benifits to the Meadows is Garrison Bight and the enourmous Bayview Park not far away. We can walk to the the marina and see the days catch, have dinner on the floating Thai restaurant, or charter a boat and/or rent our own! The art walk on White is a real treat on some Thursdays and a wonderful way to see the artists and their work in a great community event. We are just blocks from Key Wests famous cemetary, and riding our bikes to the Seaport for lunch is and almost daily event. Duval St is just down Olivia st and we bike/walk often!
