To be more ”on the water” than this property would require living on a houseboat. Hilton Haven, a residential peninsula off Roosevelt Boulevard, in the Gulf of Mexico, surrounds homeowners with water and being a single road a limited number of neighbors for a peaceful yet central place to live. Or, come by boat as the dock boasts a 20,000 lb boat lift and new 80 foot dock right outside your door! Key West’s main thoroughfare remains a hum in the distance, and yet is easily accessible for quick commutes to Old Town, New Town, the airport, or U.S.1. This sprawling property features a main house with a separate apartment on the side for guests or to supply rental income, each with a private entrance and ample outdoor space. Both could be reconfigured to include more rooms, if desired.French doors could easily be added to the main house for an unobstructed, 180-degree water view and free flow of Gulf breezes, but even as it stands the main living area offers abundant natural light from three directions. The other standout feature of this home is that the floors are made of original, Cuban tiles. Their aquatic green recalls the shallows of the Florida Keys, back country waters, swirling, mysterious and calming. Throughout the home, they infuse the rooms like another form of light. Of course, outdoor living is the whole point of Florida Keys life, and this home welcomes it to the utmost with a walled, outdoor shower off the master bedroom and another outdoor shower near the dock, a large yard hugging the coastline with room to build a swimming pool, a dock, an additional floating dock, and a boat lift. A few steps from home, and you can float into the sunset from this dream spot in the heart of Key West. Update existing structure or build your new dream home with panoramic water views. Could be eligible for second ROGO with LUD program.
Address: 14 Hilton Haven Road, Key West, FL 33040
