Among the sweetest perks of selling Key West real estate are the array of invitations, to tour the island’s hidden treasures, that come across our desks. After experiencing the captivating cottage at 1010 Elgin Lane, we felt like we had discovered a pot of gold.
Tucked away on a hidden Old Town lane, this historic, 3 bedroom/3 bath, property can best be described as personality plus. With quintessential Key West curb appeal and a front porch tailor-made for whiling away the hours, the home lays out an unforgettable welcome mat.
Crossing the threshold, one is immediately struck by the cottage’s storybook charm. The art-filled living room lends itself to whispered confidences and joyous celebrations. Wonderful artistic details delight at every turn.
The generous, cottage-style, eat-in kitchen offers views of the beautiful garden and pool.
Downstairs, the master bedroom and adjoining sitting room are awash with dappled light.
Custom features create a tropical island paradise in the home’s main bath.
Born from a childhood fantasy, an enchanting secret garden awaits in the backyard.
Guests will long to stay forever in the coastal guest cottage overlooking the sparkling pool.
Reminiscent of a British architectural folly, or a New England summer house, the unforgettable octagonal pavilion offers a peaceful retreat from the world’s cares.
Undoubtedly, the magical island escape at 1010 Elgin Lane has captured our hearts. We bet you will fall in love with this not-to-be-missed home as well.
