About the Property

6 BR 6.5 BA - Sleeps 12

An exceptional degree of creativity is displayed in this detailed renovation that artfully intertwines 3 dwellings: two unique classic 2-story 1900’s wooden houses – a main ‘family house’ and a separate ‘master house’ – plus a private guest cottage. All three are melded together with an exotic outdoor focal point, a spacious resort-style swimming pool courtyard. Inspired by the natural tropical beauty of Key West and the seaport scene is just 100 feet away, this no less trenchant than tranquil property provides a romantic look-back into architectural island history with an upscale contemporary Caribbean charm.

Family House - Kitchen + the living room = ‘the great-room,’ in luxury homes of today. This is the heart of the household, the favorite gathering place for this property, bringing generations of families and friends together to share meals, entertain, and make memories that last a lifetime. Depending where you’re relaxing, take your pick of multiple entrances that connect the great-room with the wrap around 1st floor porch.


1st FL - The great-room encompasses the entire 1st floor of the ‘family house,’ a colorful cottage-style chef’s kitchen on one side, united with the casually elegant living room on the other. Bright Caribbean blue custom kitchen cabinets, custom coastal style. Soft sand-tone living room furnishings at the other end of the room continue the casual island theme. Bright white crown molding, a stained-glass transom window, and bamboo paddle fans pull the look together. The layout allows you to turn your gaze to the swimming pool, while enjoying cooking and relaxing is ideal. Two al-fresco dining tables set on the covered porch just outside the sliding glass doors.

2nd Floor - Illuminated stair risers ascend to the 2nd floor of the ‘family house,’ where there are two uniquely decorated bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom. Bedrooms and bathrooms run along opposite sides of the house, to the right and left of the landing, providing plenty of privacy from one another. Bedroom one, to the right of the staircase, is delightfully decorated in playful celebration of the infamous Key West chickens. A queen size bed, with a luxurious chenille bedspread adorned with stuffed-animal chenille chickens to match, are sure to make you chuckle. A door leads to the large 2nd floor deck from where you enjoy an exceptional view of the swimming pool garden. The en-suite bathroom, with 2-person shower, has the tropical pink and green theme carried through with artistic hand painted plaid walls.

Bedroom two, is soft and minimalist, in hushed contrast to bedroom one. Appointed with two twin beds with white fabric headboards (that can be put together to make a king size bed), both are shown dressed with soft white chenille spreads – a picture of peacefulness. The private en-suite bathroom has a soaking tub with in-tub shower, custom design tile and bath fixtures.

Private Guest Cottage – 1 Bedroom with En-Suite Bathroom, Laundry Room, Pool Bath
So flawlessly connected to the ‘family house,’ at first it’s not apparent that the guest cottage stands on its own. Step through the French doors connecting the kitchen with the covered porch. Bedroom three, the guest cottage bedroom, with queen size bed, is styled to feel grandly spacious with open beamed ceilings painted bright white. French doors leading to a private porch and the pool courtyard, give an added exclusivity to the guest cottage bedroom. The en-suite bathroom is styled with a unique travertine tile pattern, clear glass vessel sink, large walk in shower, and designer bathroom fixtures.

Pool Bath and Laundry Room:
Back outside to the covered porch, two more doors attach to the cottage. One door leads to the small multi-purpose laundry + dressing room + pantry + desk room. No less functional for its simplicity, the extra full-size refrigerator is always useful. A full length mirror makes it convenient for dressing. The middle door leads to an exotic half-bath, exuding the unexpected feel of a luxury house in India with fanciful gold bamboo light fixtures, and cut glass maroon and milk-white tiles.

Master House – Across the pool courtyard, opposite the ‘Family House’ and ‘Guest Cottage’, is the third dwelling, an impressive 2 – story house we call the 'Master House.’ Renovated to maximize the indoor-outdoor Key West lifestyle, there are several entrances, making it easy to maximize privacy. If the den is shared with the household, the favored entrance is from French doors connecting to the porch joining the pool courtyard. If the den is kept exclusive for the master suite, the master bedroom has doors leading to the side porch away from the pool.

1st Floor – Den - The den encompasses the entire middle of ‘the master house,’ connecting and separating the master suite from the other two bedrooms in the house. With a superb view of the swimming pool courtyard, the den is the place to plop down and completely relax, pick up a book, or check on the golf game on the 55” 3D flat screen TV. Trickling sounds from the waterfall provide soothing ‘background sounds.’

Bedroom Four, is the master bedroom which has the same white soaring ceiling with truss windows, as the den plus two large transom windows. White wood coastal furnishings paired with pale yellow walls and soft Caribbean blue accents, keep you in the island state of mind. A white king size 4 – poster bed, and cotton duck sofa assure plenty of room to stretch out in comfort and style. The master en-suite bathroom is a spa-room and has all the designer fixtures you have come to expect in this estate. A Jacuzzi tub, tiles shower with frameless glass door, multiple shower heads, including a ceiling rain-head offer a luxurious spa experience.

Bedroom five, with en-suite bathroom, is on the opposite end of the den from the master suite. Original heart pine wood on the walls and ceiling of bedroom five and en-suite bathroom, are stripped of paint and sealed to show the golden grain, and trimmed with bright white crown molding. Providing two twin beds, our photo shows the bedroom decorated in an alluring animal print and bamboo safari theme. The en-suite bathroom for bedroom five provides a bath-tub with in tub shower, and carries the same bamboo and animal print theme as the bedroom.

2nd Floor – The staircase to the 2nd floor is one of most intriguing arts-and- crafts switch-back stairways we’ve seen in a Key West historic home. Set against expansive runs of original golden heart pine wood walls, set atop the white carved newel post is a golden globe newel cap. Metal ‘bejeweled’ spindles run the length of the stairs, like pieces of found treasure on display. At the top of the stairs an orange crystal ball is set as the newel cap, a precursor of the exotic sixth bedroom done in Indian décor.

Bedroom six, at the top of the stairs, is a little bit of colorful India. Dressed in an orange and red a cotton Indian bedspread, matching tapestry rug and bedside lamp, there is even a little sitting Buddha with treasure boxes set on a teak table. Mosquito netting over the queen size bed completes the look. The en-suite bathroom, features a frameless glass shower, wall mount commode, and vessel sink.

The last feature on the 2nd floor of ‘the master house,’ is a spiral stair case leading to a roof hatch that opens to a ‘widows walk’ look-out. This provides an impressive viewpoint of the Historic Seaport below.

GROUNDS AND GARDENS:
The resort-style swimming pool courtyard in the center of the property is the focal point of the grounds. By Key West standards, the swimming pool is large, and the concrete deck surrounding will easily accommodate everyone in your group. Mature tropical landscaping and barrier gardens surround the property and create nearly complete privacy from the street. Wrap around porches and decks provide many places to sit and ponder. There’s even a porch swing at the ‘family house’ to while away the hours.

Car: Not Necessary

Less than 100 feet from the boardwalk at Key West's Historic Seaport. Walk to all old town features, no need for a car. Just a few short streets from Duval St. (remember it takes 3 to 4 Key West streets to make a city block); Close to the Key West Mallory Square Sunset Celebration, and local Old Town Key West retailers. The famous historic Old Town Key West waterfront on the gulf side of the island and the original lower Duval Street area, encompasses this Historic Seaport neighborhood. Seafaring settlers of the late 1800's built the first shipping docks and warehouses, restaurants and wooden homes, including these dwellings that now stand as a luxurious testimony to Key West’s colorful past.
