Local award winning architect, Haven Burkee, recently restored this quintessential conch house built circa 1905. Wonderfully located ½ block off of our local main street—White Street—the house sits immediately adjacent to the desirable Casa Marina neighborhood in a quiet residential area yet just a short bike ride from all that Key West has to offer. The house has 2 bedrooms and 2 ½ bathrooms, original refinished wood floors and refurbished historic wood windows. The custom kitchen was installed by local cabinet manufacturer Hansen & Bringle and has stainless steel KitchenAid appliances with a gas range and oven. The bathrooms have top end Kohler fixtures, glass enclosed showers and wonderful porcelain tile that replicates the historic hand painted tile used in the early 1900’s. The beautiful vaulted ceilings in the spacious great room are up-lighted with LED cove lighting as is the expansive wrap around porch outside. The roof is sheathed with historic metal shingles that flawlessly withstood Hurricane Irma’s wind and rain. An unfinished loft provides an opportunity for expansion of another 80-100 sf for a third bedroom, office or studio. An unusual feature of 1215 South St is that, compared to most Conch houses of the era, it is constructed historic concrete block shipped from New York and has withstood countless tropical storms and most recently, Hurricane Irma. This property has been certified as an X-zone by FEMA removing the necessity for flood insurance as the property sits on some of the highest land on the island. All of the electrical, mechanical, and plumbing has been replaced. There is an on-demand gas water heater, central air, and a thermostat driven exhaust fan to keep the house cool in Key West’s balmy summers. A must see!
