1012 Varela Street, Key West FL

Welcome to 1012 Varela Street, a charming conch cottage in the heart of Old Town Key West.  Located on Varela Street, between United Street & Truman Avenue.  My colleague Gary Thomas describes the house as the Key West bargain you’ve been looking for and here’s why…

This home is made up of two cottages, originally deeded separately but have since been combined under one legal description.  The front cottage has an open living room with a vaulted ceiling that gives the living area a nice spacious feel.  Hardwood floors and Dade County Pine through out which is highly desirable here in the Keys.  This cottage features two bedrooms, a loft that opens onto a rooftop sitting area (current owners use this as their master bedroom) and a guest bedroom on the first floor across from the bathroom.  Currently this room has custom bunk beds however they can easily be removed should the new owner desire a different look or use.  The heart of the home, the kitchen, is large and open with french doors that lead to a fully fenced, private courtyard (the courtyard is large enough to accommodate a pool).

The second cottage, just across the courtyard, has a large bedroom and full bathroom.  Although this cottage does not have a kitchen it does have plenty of storage, small fridge, and a private deck in the rear of the cottage with a separate entrance.

This home is located within the Viva Varela which was originally established for the purpose of creating a common walkway to provide ingress and egress to the the rear cottages.  Included in the association fee is the common area maintenance and water however the owners of the units are responsible for maintaining their own insurance and and building exterior maintenance.  1012 Varela Street is comprised of 2 units, the HOA fee for this home is $257 per month which is a combined total for both units 1 & 2.
