We have always dreamed of finding a charming Key West cottage, tucked away on one of Old Town’s hidden lanes. Something a little old Key West funky, that we could put our stamp on, would be perfect. If it had a private garden, pool, and guesthouse, all the better. The home at 1113 Curry Lane—a secluded lane that runs between White and Frances Streets—is the stuff that dreams are made of.

DMRE-1113Curry-4191The two bedroom/two bath main house captured our hearts at first glance. We love the light-filled, eclectic living room with its Dade County pine accent wall with stained glass panels. The dining room opens to the beautifully updated kitchen with a vaulted, trompe-l’oeil ceiling, and French doors that open to the garden. A guest room and a full bath finish off the main level of the home. The Upstairs offers a spacious master bedroom with a dressing room and full bath. Three quiet and efficient, ductless air conditioning systems cool the structure.

We love the home’s private tropical courtyard. The sparkling, solar heated pool catches plenty of sun. Overlooking the pool and garden, the separate guest cottage has its own bath. Visitors will love it, or it can be legally rented for extra income.
