This home dates from the 1880’s, and over the course of time the house suffered from deferred maintenance and unsympathetic alterations. The original structure and 2 historic sawtooth additions were relocated forward on the site in keeping with surrounding historic houses on the block. In 2022 the Historic Florida Keys Foundation awarded this project a coveted Ceramic Star and Certificate of Excellence for Preservation and Restoration.
The wall of glass doors across the back of the house fold away to blur the intersection between the indoors and outdoors. The reclaimed dade county pine floors provide a warm balance to the contrasting white walls and soaring ceilings.
By relocating the the main home, a larger back yard was created accomodating a new swimming pool with an IPE deck and new cabana structure.
The new high-end kitchen seamlessly blends into the historic fabric of the restored classic Key West home.
