Just Closed In Tavernier ... The Cutest Conch House I Have Seen! The Old Keys. $420,000

The Old Keys...
The Old Screened Porch. The Original Social Networking
The virtually undisturbed Beauty, the majesty of the waters and the crisp smell of the salty air.
The Old Keys ...Hemingway's Keys...Rum and Speakeasys... Bordellos and Smuggling.  Adventure and Mosquitoes ... Sweltering Nights and Front Porch Afternoons.
No Internet, no cable, no xbox, no Kardashians... maybe a phone. Definitely a Fishing Pole.

The Old Keys ... Charm, Diligence, and a Pioneering Spirit.
Hemingway's Keys and The Keys that I Love Best!

Your Conchquistador just sold a home from that bygone era and it is one of the Coolest Homes I have ever had the privilege to represent.

Located in Old Tavernier ( the second Oldest community in the Keys of the modern era) at the southern Tip of Key Largo on tiny Lowe Street lies the best preserved Conch House I have seen.

Yesterday's Vibe
What's a Conch House???  Well, Conch Houses refer to a style of home that generally was built in the aforementioned bygone era, generally between the early 1900s through the 1940s with a few in the early 50's and they are what you envision as a cute charming Keys House, with a multitude of them in Key West, of course, and a good smattering of them throughout the rest of the Keys, and named for The Conchs (Keys Folk) who lived in them.

They are generally wood framed homes of very modest size, and quite often 2 bedrooms / 1 Bath and extremely well built with lots of Dade County Pine and quite often, metal roofs. And of Course... Porches!  Like the people that built and lived in them, they were hearty! And many have stood the test of time. 

Now, they have become Collectors' Homes.  Rare Treasures that are quite sought after along with Red Cross Homes (Those are for another post!).

Today's Reality!
122 Lowe Street
List price $424,900 / Sold Price $420,000
3 Bedrooms / 1 Bath

Really appreciate the assistance of Christy Hughes of Moorings Realty who brought fantastic Buyers who I know will cherish and preserve the great spirit and vibe of this home. And of Course my Sellers, Coral and Jeremy who kept this jewel in pristine condition and whose subtle updates were so in character of the original charm.
This Home sold really quickly and was the subject of multiple competing offers. Your Conchquistador knows how to create demand!! LOL

Description: Super charming and oh so Conch-y! Rare, 1948 Conch House in historic Tavernier. Old Keys charm coupled with subtle updates make this the ideal Keys Home. 3/1 with workshop/studio nestled in a large coral rock walled lot amongst Oaks,
Gumbos, and Mahoganies. 
Gorgeous wood floors, old-style sitting porch, Chicago Brick walkways, covered parking, an open kitchen, and plenty of boat parking are just some of the elements that make this home magical, yet so very comfortable. Dine alfresco under the Orchid Trellis! A tonic for the artist, poet, and pirate in all of us who enjoy the Old Keys!

Yep... Intoxicating.
Bring on the Rum...The Salty Air... A Breeze.. and a dog eared copy of "To Have and Have Not", a true taste of the Old Keys awaits
