As Realtors©, we get to spend a good deal of time in the homes we have listed for sale. While promoting the strong selling points of a property to potential buyers during showings and open houses, we often find ourselves liking a home more and more—sometimes, we even fall in love. The beautiful, Classical Revival home at 1405 Olivia Street, in Key West’s historic Meadows neighborhood, is one such home. It has captured our hearts.
We have compiled a list of our favorite things about this wonderful family home. Enjoy!

The Top 10 Things We Love About 1405 Olivia Street, Key West, FL
10. The Breezy Upstairs Front Porch
We dream of stretching out on the hammock and reading a great book, enjoying a tall glass of iced tea, and catching the tropical breezes on the stately, second story porch.
9. The Classical Revival Architecture
As a shining example of traditional Key West architecture, 1405 Olivia Street is one of the 2,485 buildings that are protected in the Key West Historic District. We adore the clean lines of this 1909, three bay, Classical Revival gem.
8. The Bright and Airy Master Bedroom
With a vaulted ceiling and four casement windows, the spacious, treehouse-like, master bedroom is bright and airy. A second story addition to the house, the private master suite is separated from the other bedrooms by a sunny entry hall, large walk in closet, and an en suite bathroom.
7. The Dade County Pine Walls
The tremendously hard work that went into refinishing and restoring the home’s original Dade County Pine walls, is not lost on us. We love the beautiful pickled and stained finishes that so add to the brightness of the interior.
6. The Versatile Family Room
Currently used as a family room, the original parlor has also served a dining room. We love that the inviting space could easily be converted into a fourth bedroom with the addition of French doors.
5. The Open Plan Living
We love the home’s contemporary, open plan living design. Award winning renovations beautifully maintain the home’s historic character while offering the best of modern living.
3. The Sparkling Pool
What is not to love about the pool?
2. The Friendly Front Porch
We would love to sit on the charming front porch and watch the world strolling by. The terrazzo floor covers what was once the home’s cistern. We are always enamored with the island’s blue painted porch ceilings.
★1. The Covered Outdoor Space
Covered outdoor space always seems to be near the top of our buyers’ lists of what they are looking for in their Key West dream home. 1405 Olivia Street’s commodious, covered outdoor space is perfectly fashioned for indoor/outdoor living and entertaining at its best. We love it!
