              1214 Olivia Street: Superb home for family and entertaining

              Key West icon in the heart of The Meadows. Known locally as The Monastery, this exquisite, historic 4,500 square-foot family estate is meant for sophisticated entertaining and intimate, comfortable living. The meticulous renovation created a design and architectural masterpiece that includes five bedrooms and 3.5 baths, while preserving original windows, doors and Dade County pine walls.

              The design of the custom chef’s kitchen with high-end appliances and hand-crafted cabinetry honors the lines of historic monasteries. The second-floor master retreat and private deck overlooking the pool and spa include an extravagant walk-in closet with personal vanity, a morning kitchen and a spacious bath with claw-foot slipper tub and dressing area. The third floor is a spacious private office with spectacular views far above the neighborhood — – and could be easily transformed into a personal retreat.

              Attention to detail and historic preservation are this home’s hallmarks, including a 1,000-bottle, climate controlled wine cellar created from the original cistern. Heart-of-pine, 12-inch plank flooring from Canada and stained walnut runs throughout the home and a hand-crafted tin ceiling soars over the kitchen with its slate floor.

              A large media room is off the open, main living area and a Czech crystal chandelier original to the home hangs over the expansive, light-filled dining room with its built-in cabinetry and shelves. Egg-and-dart crown molding complements the French Colonial style throughout the home.

              Professional landscaping surrounds the 11,209 square-foot property and weaves together the outdoor garden spaces for peaceful solitude and exuberant playtime around the free-form pool and spa. The full-kitchen gazebo, a covered lanai that opens into the main house for intimate gatherings and the one-bedroom cottage with its own bath and kitchen create an entertainment powerhouse.

              The home’s stately, wrap-around porches and grand entrance are graced on either side by magnificent royal palms. Bricked, off-street parking behind the rolling gate accommodates multiple vehicles. An X-flood zone location in Key West’s Meadows neighborhood and exceptional structural improvements done as part of the renovation ensure this home is as strong and secure as it is beautiful.
