It is no wonder that the most desirable area to live in Key West is its historic Old Town neighborhood. Amid picturesque Victorian era streets and a lifestyle lived visiting on front porches or strolling to dinner at favorite neighborhood eateries, Old Town is the authentic version of classic small town America that the New Urbanism movement has been recreating across the country for decades. There is simply no place as beguilingly beautiful as this veritable corner of paradise.
Just down the block from 5 Brothers Grocery & Sandwich Shop—arguably the best place in Key West to enjoy a famous Cuban mix and an authentic Cuban coffee—there is a beautifully renovated, 3 bedroom/2 bath, cottage that just might be the family vacation home of your dreams. The charming yellow cottage, with impeccable curb appeal, is part of an Old Town compound of seven single family residences that share a large, resort style pool. Combining the benefits of single family home ownership with the convenience of a homeowners association taking care of the pool and landscaping, 611 Grinnell Street #1 is the ideal choice for anyone looking for an easy breezy, authentic Key West retreat.
A quintessential white picket fence, verdant landscaping, and a refashioned façade welcomes you home. Contemporary open-plan living abounds in the newly renovated interior. The lovely entry leads to a spacious, bright and airy, great room. A perfect office, two bedrooms, and an updated bathroom round out the front of the home. The stylish dining area and cottage style kitchen continue the wonderful flow. For added privacy, the tranquil master suite is situated at the rear of the home. Creating the best of tropical indoor/outdoor living, four sets of French doors open the home to a sunny private courtyard. Just steps from a private gate, the spectacular shared pool is ready for your carefree enjoyment.
Live the dream! Make this charming island cottage your new vacation home in heart of historic Old Town Key West.
