We love living across the street from the historic Key West Cemetery. With as many as 100,000 souls buried there, and only 30,000 residents currently living on the island, the number of the dead far surpasses the living. When friends ask if we are bothered by our close proximity to the cemetery, we tell them that our neighbors could not be easier to get along with and that the unimpeded vista from our front porch is a rare and desirable find in Old Town. Unless we happen to be around for the zombie apocalypse, we have more to fear from the living.
Just around the corner from our home on Olivia Street, a charming, cemetery view cottage has just come on the market. Nestled on one of the most desirable streets in Old Town, 813 Frances Street is ideally located: just a leisurely stroll from Duval Street, the harbor, and the beach.
The home’s classic front porch is the perfect spot to while away the hours, watch the world bike by, and enjoy spectacular skies as the sun sets over the Key West Cemetery. A wonderful blend of traditional and contemporary design defines the home. We love the modern open floor plan with its dining room, sunny kitchen, spacious loft, and family room opening to the pool. With a ground floor master suite, covered outdoor space in the garden, and gated off-street parking, 813 Frances Street ticks all the boxes.
