About Richard

I am a retired yet still licensed real estate broker . I am also a retired building contractor and did the renovations on this home which was awarded a Certificate of Excellence from the Florida Keys Historic Foundation. I lived in this home full time for about 5 years and now use it as my vacation home when it is not rented out to others.

Richard purchased this house in 2001

Why Richard chose Historic Seaport

I love renovation projects and this home in 2001 was a wreck, and just the kind of property that I like to restore. There are pictures in an album in the bookcase. The location is in Old Town Key West which is a Historic District.The home is located very conveniently to many wonderful restaurants, attractions and the Historic Seaport. It is walking distance to Duval St.( 5 1/2 blocks) which is the main street to stroll and shop and enjoy the many beautiful and architectually significant buildings and attractions.

What makes this house unique

Steam bath in master bathroom, private pool and spa, fireplace ( for the few days in winter that it might be necessary) Separate fully equipped office in the home as well as 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. Vaulted ceiling in Living/dining area with a wall of glass doors leading to the pool/spa/deck area. There is also access to the pool/spa directly from the master bedroom.

Lovely historic home in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely historic house in a prime Key West location. The interior is charming and has everything needed for an extended stay. Everything is within walking distance including a bakery and sandwich place right on the corner. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again and would reccommend it to friends.

March in Key West

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our small dog, JW, stayed in Richard's beautiful home for a little over a month. It felt like home to us! The backyard is a great set up. Totally loved the pool and hot tub. Very comfortable home with a well equipped kitchen. The master suite is perfectly designed. Very comfortable bed. Richard is wonderful to work with and wants his guests to feel at home and enjoy their stay. We will be back to Key West and would definitely stay here!

Fabulous home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property with 2 of my friends. The house was well maintained, and had plenty of space for all of us. Very clean! The pool and the jacuzzi were wonderful for relaxing afternoons. Only about 6 blocks to Duvall Street where all the fun is. An easy walk.

wonderful month in Key West

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our month in Key West in this lovely historical home. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms and an office gave us plenty of room for our family and guests. We spent most of our time out by the pool and soaking in the jacuzzi. We love to walk, so the location was excellent. The house is close to many wonderful restaurants, the harbor, a great fish market and the best bakery in town. Owner was very responsive to every question and request.

A Historic Treasure!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in Key west and this beautifully restored historic home. The pool/spa area is a delight, as is the steam bath. We walked to great restaurants, bakery, pubs, etc etc. The location is close to everything and we left the car parked in front of the house the whole time. It was a wonderful vacation!!
