923 Angela | Storybook cottage with a perfect renovation

Open House | Noon-3 p.m. | Sunday | Aug. 27

THIS IS THE TALE OF A PERFECTLY ADORABLE KEY WEST CONCH COTTAGE.

Tucked into one of Old Town’s best neighborhoods, 923 Angela Street ticks off the boxes buyers want most when they’re searching Key West real estate with an eye toward customizing their new permanent or vacation home.

This Angela Street home boasts two bedrooms, expansive living space and exceptional indoor-outdoor connections. It’s updated, historic, and is but one of fewer than a dozen homes in a quiet neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle of Duval Street. The Old Town location is within walking distance of everything and far enough away to provide serene privacy. Its recent high-end renovation has made it a historic showstopper.

This is a historic Key West cottage, built in 1933 (though likely earlier) and filled with Dade County pine, including wood floors and a “real” staircase to the second floor. Anyone who has wrestled with Key West’s makeshift spiral staircases or ladders knows just how valuable a real staircase is.

With its perfect front porch for sunset views and gentle breezes, this two-story home offers casual Key West living in a traditional setting. It has been updated successfully to include central air conditioning, a must-have on days when the breeze might not be enough.

Brilliant, dappled natural light plays across the interior’s historic Dade County pine floors and walls. A beautiful kitchen makes hosting guests – and entertaining them – efficient and graceful.
The main floor, which features a large suite and bath, opens to outdoor living through French doors onto the back deck with pool and intimate garden. The covered lanai comes complete with a sweet spot for gardening.

Unlike so many Conch cottages, 923 Angela packs an astounding amount of storage space both inside and out. A full-size laundry space, storage under the stairs and built-in storage on the lanai mean plenty of places to hide away your extras.

The large, light-filled, open concept second floor is a perfect master retreat or — if you must — an island home office or den. And, when your work is done, step out to the tree top balcony for expansive views of Key West. The second floor includes a cutting-edge, designer bathroom with additional storage and a sitting area and office under the huge side windows.

It’s in the highly desirable X-zone flood plain. No flood insurance required.
