Welcome to 1230 Seminary Street, Key West, FL listed for $2.7 Million:
This home has three-bedrooms, three-and-a-half-bathrooms and was built in 1890, on a 0.2-acre lot.
It is on a quiet street, a five-minute walk from a butcher shop, a coffee shop and city hall. It is half a mile from Bayview Park, a green space with a playground and tennis courts, and Horace O’Bryant School, a public school serving students in prekindergarten through eighth grade. Some of the island’s best-known landmarks, including the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum and the Key West Lighthouse, are about a mile away, as are several public beaches.
Key West International Airport is a 10-minute drive. Key Largo, a popular starting point for trips through the Keys, is about two and a half hours away. Driving to Miami takes about three and a half hours.
Size: 1,987 square feet
Price per square foot: $1,359
The entrance to the house is behind a wood gate, off the brick driveway. The front door, at the center of the covered porch, opens into a long foyer with a staircase to the second level and access to a powder room.
To the left, through a wide, arched doorway, is a living room with windows looking out on the surrounding greenery. The dining room is through another arched doorway. The family room, at the back of the house, has expansive windows and sliding-glass doors that open to the rear deck, the pool and the garden.
The sleek galley kitchen, separated from the family room by a breakfast bar, has stainless steel appliances and access to the rear deck.
The primary suite is off a hallway extending from the foyer. The bedroom has glass doors that open to a walkway leading to the pool area. Two full bathrooms are connected to the bedroom.
Two guest rooms are on the second floor. One has a balcony overlooking the neighborhood; the other has built-in bookshelves. They share a full bathroom at the end of the hall.
The outdoor spaces were recently updated, with new IPE wood decking and a walkway encircling the house. The pool is at the center of the backyard, surrounded by space for lounge chairs; a covered loggia at one end holds an outdoor bar. There is space to park one car in the driveway.
