December 8, 2016 | By | Comments (5)

Winter blues got you down? Then it’s time to take a brief mental escape to Key West, Florida, where the sun is (almost) always shining and the weather is sublime. But if you’re seeking a longer escape to the Keys, you’re in luck: an impossibly charming cottage in the Conch Republic is on the market.

This cozy property was built in 1924 and has been carefully preserved over the years, even winning the 2011 Historic Preservation Award. Step inside:

The entrance to this cottage demonstrates classic Key West style, with a white picket fence, low front porch, and colorful front door, of course.

The floor, painted blue, gives the entry a cheery tone when paired with the white clapboard exterior. Rustic wooden shutters add a welcoming contrast, and comfortable furnishings make this spot the perfect place to nestle, people-watch, and sip on a cocktail at the end of the day.

Planning a trip to Key West? Here’s your packing list.

Inside, wood accents give the large, open-concept main living space a warm feel. White beams across the ceiling and white walls in the kitchen keep the room looking light and airy.

Upstairs—reached by taking a narrow flight of lovely sea-green stairs—a light-filled loft holds one of the two bedrooms. The white ceiling and light blue walls keep the small space from feeling cramped.

As charming as the interior is, the outside holds even more appeal. This cottage is 1,025 square feet; the rest of the nearly 3,000-square-foot lot encompasses the lovely outdoor living space, which includes an outdoor dining room, plenty of comfortable seating, a pool, and the mainstay of the dream home: an outdoor shower.

Located in the historic Old Town neighborhood, this property is only two blocks from bustling Duval Street and within walking distance of the beaches, parks, marinas, and more that line the coast of the key. It has two bedrooms and one and a half baths and is on the market for $1,225,000.

This stylish Key West cottage is listed by Brenda Donnelly of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Knight & Gardner Realty. You can get more information—and drool over more images of this real estate gem—here.
