We have recently added a new listing.  It is a rare find in that it is both ocean front and a ground floor unit with a large beautiful patio.  The oversize, landscaped patio faces south so it never gets the afternoon sun that can be so hot in the summer. The ocean blows gently cooling breezes making it a delight all the time day and night.   It is a fully furnished (furnishings negotiable) two bedroom one bath home located on the beautiful Key West by the Sea grounds. It directly faces Smathers Beach.  The beach is maintained daily so it is always clean and inviting.

Key West by the Sea is situated on 8 acres of lovely landscaped grounds with two tennis courts and two swimming pools.  One pool is heated year around.  The complex is gated including parking with camera security. The buildings were built to last and are meticulously maintained.  The friendly management staff loves making residents comfortable in their homes.

Key West by the Sea has a very unique history in that it has never been flooded by any storm or hurricane in over 50 years.  Key West by the Sea is a safe and pleasant place to live.

NOW, the really big news!  For years the Key West by the Sea Association has been working with the government to have the units soundproofed from the airport nearby.  The airport has never been a problem and is not really noisy.  But, now, over the next couple of years each unit is going through huge changes.  NIP (Noise Insulation Program—a Government Agency) is going to completely change out all the windows with double pained soundproof, hurricane proof, and rust proof replacements.  The same thing is being done to the sliding doors.  All wall and window A/C units will be removed.  The new units will be a quiet central A/C system.  The entries will be replaced with soundproof and hurricane proof doors.  The units will be so tight that special air ducts are being installed so the doors can be closed.  The current existing storm shutters will no longer be necessary.  Overall NIP will be installing tens of thousands of dollars in improvements at no cost to the owners.

I have been a Florida licensed Realtor for 38 years. Most of which has been in real estate.  During most this time I have been in real estate sales. Key Wes by the Sea has been my specialty for over 20 years. I know just about all there is to know about it.  There are 206 beautiful homes most of which are owner occupied year around with the exception of a few rentals most of which I manage.   It is a quiet secure community.

Over the years I have sold close to 100 units here and have even sold some of them several times.

If you are considering the sale or purchase of a unit contact me and I will help you the very best I can.
