One of the Grand Dames of Key West, this two-story family home, known locally as the "Amparo Avila House," combines the exceptional details of historic preservation with the modern amenities that today’s lifestyle demands. Built in the late 1800's and a recipient of the Historic Preservation Award, this treasure offers the essence of what we love about Old Town Key West - history, romance, luxury, & location!
Three bedrooms and three baths, including the upstairs master with its expansive en-suite of Carrara marble and claw foot tub, each open to the double story porches perfect for an evening of conversation with friends and people watching. The flooring is original pine, perfectly cared for, and there is Dade County pine throughout the home. The main floor living area leads to a private patio and dip pool. The high-end kitchen and massive, walk-in pantry and utility room open to the patio for superb entertaining. Located two blocks from the historic seaport and two blocks to Duval Street, this beauty unites history and luxury. The home's impressive lineage includes former owner Stephen Avila, a nationally known artist, whose Casa Avila Gallery was located on the first floor on the home until 1969.
