This home is a must-see inside and is easy to show; restructured and re-imagined, it now shines with a unique historic/industrial/contemporary vibe. Originally two stories with later additions, its size grew to 2236 sq. ft. with 3 bedrooms/3-1/2 baths. Over a 5 year rebuild, the entire structure (photos are available) was upgraded to Code, with all permits closed out. A new roof was built, with Simpson ties attaching it all the way down into cap rock, into which new concrete piers were drilled/formed. New electrical, plumbing, A/C, spray-foam insulation, rebuilt salt system pool, on-demand gas hot water, new stucco and impact glass triple-paned doors and windows were installed. There is also a bonus building (14 x 18 feet). Besides its structural integrity, the home has been beautifully re-designed, with first floor (and outdoor) travertine and refinished 2nd floor wood floors. There are some surprising details such as a gorgeous reclaimed wood stairwell and feature wall in the master bedroom, with unusual glass and rock mosaics in the master bath. A large kitchen and 8 foot island includes KitchenAid appliances, gas double oven range, 2 sinks and 2 garbage disposals. The perfect home for those looking at properties in Old Town: just a few minute's walk away, with more parking (both off-street and on) and more space for less money. The location is also very close to the Key West Yacht Club and US 1 businesses.
