For Sale in The Meadows Old Town Key West
1402 Pine St. heated pool & waterfall.

The Meadows is one of the most well recognized and clearly defined of the six neighborhoods in Old Town Key West.  Bordered by Eisenhower Dr. to the East, Truman Ave. to the South, White St. to the West and Perry Court to the North, The Meadows is home to approximately 320 single family homes and a few condos and apartments.  Strictly residential with quiet, tree-lined streets. The Meadows is about a 10 minute bike ride to the historic harbor walk area or the downtown eateries and galleries. There isn't a lot of turnover in The Meadows; more or less 15 homes bought and sold per year.  Let's see what 2018 has brought so far.


The Meadows dates to the early 1900's when the mostly scrub and sparsely populated area on the "outskirts" of town was turned into modest homes by and for the work crews of entrepreneur and visionary Henry Flagler.  As the Overseas Railroad made its last mile or so into downtown Key West, there were too few places close to the work sites for the workers to live. The Meadows, close by the construction areas, was mostly open terrain so the workers and their families built simple, sturdy homes on small rectangular lots.  As families settled and grew, the homes grew and/or new, larger homes were built.


The Meadows retains this same homey feeling.  Residents both year 'round and seasonal live comfortably and securely along these narrow streets. Let's see what has sold and is for sale -

Let's take a closer look at a few -

711 Georgia St. The Meadows, Key West.


711 Georgia St. is relatively new to The Meadows, built in 1976. The property has been very well maintained during its life with steady upgrades including roof, electricity, two new 3rd floor bedrooms with a full bathroom and a new screened-in 2nd floor balcony.


One thing to note is, even though the flood zone registers as AE6; grade elevation readings suggest this building is likely very eligible for a Letter of Map (LOMA) Revision. A LOMA revision could reclassified the property as an X-zone building. An Elevation Certificate would tell for sure, and would be needed for a LOMA application. Not difficult.


711 Georgia St. is offered for $679,000 and is the lowest priced home in The Meadows.
