Just listed! Canal-front home with pool in Key West!

Anyone who follows the Key West housing market knows it’s difficult to find a home with a water view and/or access. In fact, a current search of the Key West MLS turned up only eight active listings of single family homes under $1 million with this criteria. Only three are located on a canal.

The newly-listed home at 2817 Venetian Drive is not only located on a canal, but also has a large in-ground cement pool surrounded by beautifully manicured yard and gardens. There’s also stone patio directly on the waterfront and a wood deck that goes all the way around the house on the upper floor overlooking all of this. A steel frame and plank wood step spiral staircase gives easy access from the house to the yard, pool and picnic area. All of this is fenced on two sides for privacy and no neighbors across the canal. I’d have to say it’s one of the most idyllic outdoor settings you’ll find, even on an island as beautiful as Key West!

The home itself is 2,200 square feet and includes three large bedrooms with closets and three full bathrooms on the upper level. The kitchen has been completely renovated with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and an eat-in bar.

Under the home on the ground level you’ll find a large, deep, two-car garage. There is an additional off-street parking spot on the property. For your safety and security, the house has a new alarm system, updated electrical panel, new garage doors, triple pane windows and storm shutters.

Venetian Drive is centrally located off Flagler Avenue in New Town. This neighborhood is the only place in Key West where you’ll find canal-front homes. You’re less than a mile from Key West High School and a five minute drive to the closest supermarket and K-Mart in one direction or Smathers Beach in the other direction. If you’re looking for more action, Duval Street is only two miles away!

The listing price for 2817 Venetian Drive is $795,000, which gives you a price of $361.36 per square foot of living space. You can’t get much better than that in Key West, especially when you consider the beautiful outdoor space and location of this waterfront home.

If you’d like to take a closer look, call me to schedule a tour. I’d be happy to show you why I think this is one of the best deals on the island right now. You can reach me at 305-304-1708 or
