Extraordinarily secluded and completely hidden from view on a sleepy artist’s lane is a special slice of Key West you would never find on your own. This is a home of fine distinction that offers ‘5-Star Quality Amenities’, and displays the most authentic and romantic elements of Key West historic architecture while at the same time offering the most desirable attributes of a private Caribbean Resort style home.
From the moment you step inside the property gate you’ll feel as though you’ve entered ‘a world all your own.’ The spacious free-form black bottom pool complete with trickling waterfall possesses the prettiest elements of a peaceful natural lagoon. At this point the stresses of everyday life seem to gently float away and you know you’re in your own little piece of paradise.
The interior hub of this villa is the European style kitchen adjoining an indoor / outdoor loggia dining area and the elegant living room / music room through casement style French doors. The spaciousness of the living room and dining areas are accentuated with cathedral ceilings and French doors that lead to covered porches and the courtyard. The living room includes a beautiful piano, exquisite furnishings and original artwork.
This remarkable resort style home offers 4 bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms are located on the 'bedroom wing' along a light-filled hallway that adjoins the kitchen via French doors. The master bedroom is at the very end of the hall and offers a king size bed. It also has a spacious private en-suite bathroom and the additional luxury feature of a private outdoor sitting deck over looking the garden. The remaining two bedrooms are further up the hall as you walk towards the kitchen. The 2nd bedroom offers a queen size bed and the 3rd bedroom offers 2 twin beds. A full bath along this bedroom wing serves as the bathroom for the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms. There is also a powder room (half-bath)and laundry center along this hall-way.
The fourth bedroom is a private guest cottage situated in a free-standing pavilion style building. Located next to the living room, this cottage offers a king size bed, spacious en-suite bathroom, and a separate sitting porch overlooking the courtyard and pool garden.
The overall style and design of the ‘Tropical ~ Tranquility’ villa reflects the unique vision of the worldly European artist-owner of the home to create the ultimate Key West – Caribbean – European villa that flawlessly blends the indoors with the garden. French doors leading to covered porches, soaring vaulted ceilings, and ceiling fans make it comfortable to enjoy the open air island ‘green’ life style. While the villa does have two central a/c units, the forward thinking environmental design of this home allows you to enjoy life without a/c on most days.

Furniture and wall colors are soft and neutral to enhance the tranquil feel of the home; most of the color is provided from bright tropical flowers in the garden.
