It can take years to understand the best neighborhoods in Key West, but 1022 Varela will spare you the time. A hidden corridor between main streets and a few short blocks long, Varela is truly and purely residential (including two schools, and City Hall at one end). Within easy walking distance lie the conveniences of grocery stores, pet groomers, gas stations and liquor stores, as well as life-enhancing Cuban coffee shops, galleries, health and wellness businesses, and restaurants--including the beloved Seven Fish. A renovated, original Conch cottage from the early 20th century, 1022 Varela welcomes with a charming front porch for sitting to watch island life pass. The cozy living room directly inside flows into a modernized kitchen and out through French doors to an island house'ssecond "living room," a sheltered and private outdoor deck that is surrounded by foliage and space for a dining room table and a grilling party. To the side, room for stashing paddle boards and kayaks, as well as a full outdoor shower to rinse of post-beach. Though painted white downstairs, the Dade County Pine walls reveal integrity and texture: this is the kind of historic home that makes Key West real estate so coveted. Downstairs, the modern, master bath includes a vintage-style clawfoot tub, while upstairs, two bedrooms with slanted roofs abut each other, one containing a half bath. New bamboo floors and appliances, as well as all the finishing touches, give this home a modern feel that combine with its history to give you a true feel of Key West just as you'll find every time you walk around the block.
