About Kari S. Hjerpe
My husband and I bought this circa 1919 property to set down roots and raise our family. The front house on the property was a single- story 600 square foot mess with a tropically overgrown backyard; what is presently the cottage was originally a separate grandfather's abode.
Kari S. Hjerpe purchased this cottage in 1988
Why Kari S. Hjerpe chose Key West
As soon as we macheted our way around the property, we were able to see a gem through the detritus and decay: a large property for Old Town (55'x100'), with lovely high walls for privacy, plenty of space for grass and gardens, a fresh-water well, and two large bunnies living an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. But really, we bought it for the Cuban food around the corner.
What makes this cottage unique
The location of this property is perfect for us. We wanted an in-town lifestyle, but did not want to be so far downtown as to be impacted by the decibel level of Duval Street. From here it is a quick walk to downtown fun or to the beach; the best of both worlds and tropical gardens, too..
