I love this location because it’s so close to everything. One block off Duval Street and just under a mile to the best beach in Key West: Fort Zachary Taylor State Park. For you history buffs, this home is located at the site of the former Samaritan Hall, an icon in Key West history.

The exterior of the home makes you feel like you’re at an elegant European villa with a beautiful, private fenced-in tropical garden and lush landscaping. Its oversized lot means there are three off-street parking spaces and room for a pool or to expand. For the practical-minded, you’ll be happy to know this home is constructed of poured concrete on an elevated foundation high out of the flood zone: built to survive a hurricane! This also makes for low insurance costs and easy maintenance.
The 2,028-square-foot interior is spacious and gracious with 10-foot ceilings, Mexican tile and lots of light. The home features three bedrooms and three bathrooms plus a commercial grade kitchen. The large master bedroom and bathroom suite has a Jacuzzi tub for four.
As an additional perk, this home is zoned for office and professional use, which gives you the flexibility to use it as a grand single family home or to convert it into a professional office or combination office and residence. Its location near the Key West courthouse would make it an excellent choice for an Attorney, but it certainly could be used by a doctor, architect or other professional, as well.
