About Soren Pfeffer
My husband and I are architects and have worked in the residential design/build field for the past 20+ years building custom homes and renovating existing historic houses. I continue to practice architecture and my husband is now selling real estate, a passion of his since adolescence. We have 2 wonderful children who have spent many happy winter vacations at the house. We also spent a year in our Key West house with our kids (and my mother-in-law), our wolf hound and our cat while the kids went to the local schools. We loved getting to know the town from a local's perspective. It's a town with a terrific arts community and talented musicians of all sorts.
Soren Pfeffer purchased this cottage in 2004
Why Soren Pfeffer chose Old Town
We fell in love with Key West the first time we visited. We stayed out on 'the strip' (large hotels) on that visit but spent much of our time wandering the streets of old town and started to look for a house to buy. We knew that the town's funky flavor, intimacy and relaxed feel was unique and it just spoke to us. The locals treated us well from that very first visit and we felt at home immediately. We love to bike and walk and the town is made for walking! Everything you need is within 1/2 mile it seems, and the architecture enchanted us more and more as we wandered the lovely streets and alleys. We had spent much time in and around New York City growing up, so the grid layout of the town was easily understandable and within a day we could find our way around. We felt at ease here and found so much to see and do while also giving us the space to relax and take in the beautiful ocean surrounding the island with it's incredible crystal turquoise waters!
What makes this cottage unique
Our house is in a perfect location - no kidding. - it's within a few blocks of the tourist hub of town and is an easy 10 minute walk or bike ride from everything you could possibly want. There's a library within 4 blocks, tons of restaurants and shops, a great Cuban coffee place about 6 blocks away, art galleries, small supermarkets and the best beach in town is about a mile away. We still can't believe that we found such a location. And, it's private and on a lane that many people can't find - perfect for a getaway. We also put in a lovely curved pool which creates an oasis under our coconut palm for those lazy afternoons or dinner on the patio. We created a home that will be perfect for your visit and hope that it entices you to stay again and again, as it does for us. We ask that you respect the quiet that you will find around you; this is an established full time resident kind of neighborhood, so we want to make sure that our renters fit right in and feel at home.
