"Maxwell Gables" 55+ Compound with Pool & Tropical Gardens

One of the best things about homes in Key West is the sweet little gardens and pool areas you can find hidden behind the white picket fences visible from the street. No matter your location, you can discover a whole new world within the walls of your own property, only visible to you!

Lush gardens and brick pathway in the Maxwell Gables Compound on Frances Street

The exclusive Old Town “Maxwell Gables” compound located at 906 & 908 Frances Street (between Truman and Olivia) is a wonderful example, but without the all the upkeep. Each of the six townhomes are part of a homeowners association (HOA) that maintains the pool and common area (gardens!). You own your own townhome (land, too), but pay a small monthly fee ($250/month, which also includes water, sewer and trash removal) and share the stunning gardens and pool with the five other townhomes in the complex. And we’re talking a huge common area and nice-sized pool, all beautifully landscaped.
Tropical paradise in your own backyard. Clothing optional in the pool area.
One of the neat things about this complex is that each townhome really feels like a separate home. They are NOT the cookie-cutter townhomes that you see in big cities or the suburbs; all six homes are completely unique in size, shape and design. They range is size from 800 to 1,700 square feet; four have two stories and two are only one level. Three of the homes front the street, while the other three have their sole entrances off the garden and pool area.
All six townhomes and the common areas are shown here.

As fortune would have it, one of these townhomes is for sale! The newly-remodeled 906B has 841 square-feet of living area on two floors. The open living room has cathedral ceilings, skylight and French doors that open to a private deck. The designer kitchen features granite counter tops, wine refrigerator, wood cabinets and hardwood floors. The large master bedroom and bath are located on the first floor, with second (or guest) bedroom and bath privately located on the upper floor. And the stunning pool and mature tropical gardens are just outside your door!
