Description

DISCOUNTED RATES for Open Dates this FALL!

As part of the Truman Annex, this stately four-bedroom, three-bath home on Admiral's Lane is tucked away in the beauty and privacy of thick tropical foliage. The Annex neighborhood, named for President Harry Truman who wintered at The Little White House just blocks away, is Old Town's premiere gated waterfront community. The manicured landscaping, verdant palms, white picket fences, and interconnecting pathways give the Annex a park-like atmosphere even Frederick Olmsted, the father of landscape architecture, would have to admire were he alive today.

What you see first when you turn onto the Admiral's Lane cul-de-sac is a bricked-in parking area. At this point nothing more is revealed except a roofed entranceway with a heavy wooden door. It's through this door that you transition from the street to the vacation home of a lifetime.

A few steps in, you spy the prestigious two-story façade painted white accented by Cove Blue shutters. Walk to your left to stand by the heated pool designed in a visually interesting zigzag pattern and nearby the ultimate warm-weather luxury, an outside shower. At certain times of day, sunshine plays through palm fronds creating a pattern of shadows and bright sparkle over the pool surface.

Step up two steps to the wrap-around covered porch. The front portion offers two hospitality areas on either side of the front door with old Florida ceiling fans whirring above. And even further above is the second-story balcony tucked under the deep architectural roof projection and accessible only from the master bedroom.
But while you're still outdoors, check out the side portion of the porch featuring a pair of chaise lounge chairs contoured to support your body should you want to stretch out overlooking the pool. Picture yourself settling in for conversation, to use the wireless connection to check your email, to read a guide book or novel, or to just to savor the weather. Or walk further back to find the outside dining area under a Casablanca-type fan chandelier. Adjacent is the barbeque grill, ready for you to cook fresh local fish or a generous cut of Porterhouse. Already you're sure you've rented the right place, and you haven't even been inside yet.

Enter this lovely home through the front door into the living room or through the first set of French doors into the dining room; these side-by-side panel doors lend light, elegance, and function not only to the these room but throughout the house, upstairs and down. Once inside, you'll find an open floor plan and notice the palm motif from outside has been brought inside with plants, paintings, and a leaded glass art piece at the stairwell.
Just beyond the dining area is the U-shaped kitchen featuring all modern appliances, including a Jenn-Air indoor grill. The wrap-around counter is nicely set up so a portion curves around into breakfast bar. Have cereal or coffee here. Or imagine the space as an interface of food preparation and conversation with cooking on one side and admirers seated in tall wicker bar chairs looking on, maybe advising the cook to use more pepper.

Next comes the hallway leading to the back rooms and a full bath. At the hall's end, you'll find a comfortable den for TV and movie viewing. To the left are more French doors; this set leads right out onto the side porch. To your right, on the other side of the den, is a light and airy bedroom for guests or family. These rooms complete the first floor.

Back up front, past the artisan-carved armoire housing the living room TV, take the wide staircase to the second floor bedrooms and baths. To your left, down the hall, is a master suite of bold proportions, including bath with Jacuzzi soaking tub, shower, and double sinks. This bedroom and the others on this floor have cushy wall-to-wall carpeting in contrast to the solid hardwood floors throughout the rest of the house.
The king-size four-poster canopy bed features the rich detail of Spanish Revival furniture with tied-back sheer drapes. The style will remind you of a classic museum piece or family heirloom. Next to the bed, you'll again find those elegant French doors; this time they lead onto a generous balcony with seating area private enough to enjoy in bathrobes. Across the room, beyond the wicker chair with overstuffed pillows and wicker ottoman, behind louvered doors, you'll find what by Key West standards constitutes generous closet space. Need even more space? Open the woven bamboo armoire housing not only the TV but also three large drawers for clothes or whatever.

If you can tear yourself away to retrace your steps down the hallway, you'll find the laundry facility, two smaller bedrooms, and yet another full bath. The space and amenities seem never-ending.
Maybe it's hard to imagine venturing from this amazing piece of real estate, but you must because the tours, beaches, museums, water sports, shopping, restaurants, and bars of the southernmost city await you. And many are just steps beyond your neighborhood.

"Beautiful home/location"

5 of 5

My family and I loved this house. It was prettier in person than even the images on display. And it was very private which we loved. It's in great condition and very well maintained for the most part. We would definitely stay here again and again!

"Secluded & Lovely!"

5 of 5

We stayed Thanksgiving week. Beautiful home. Easy to check in. Quiet neighborhood. Pool was small but adequate for a couple. The deck and outdoor furniture were pleasant. The assigned parking space was fine for one small car. We would rent this house again.

"Awesome property, perfect fit for our group."

5 of 5

This home was perfect for the 8 of us in every way. It's location to our event (Boat Races), restaurants, shopping , etc. could not have been any better. The pool was enjoyed, the layout of the home was perfect for the 4 couples.

"Wonderful"

5 of 5

My family stayed here for a week. The accommodations were excellent. Everything we needed was provided. Great location! Would recommend this to everyone.

"Wow- Could not have been better"

5 of 5

We rented this 4 bedroom 3 bath house for vacation with our adult children, 6 month old grandson and 87 year old father. It was perfect! One bedroom downstairs for Grandpa, a huge master for my husband and I (with a porch to get away from everyone if we wanted) and 2 rooms for our girls and their significant others. The second largest bedroom had a king size bed and was a little small for the pack-&-play, but we made it work. Although the pool was small it was well maintained and perfect for the baby's first swimming lessons. We spent most of our time on the wrap around porch. The location was FANTASTIC! Close enough for my Dad to walk to the fun on Duval St. and Mallory Square. The renal process was seamless and easy. The home was clean and well maintained.

"Perfect home base for our group."

5 of 5

This home had enough space indoors and out for our group to either gather together or spread out into our own spaces as we desired. We especially enjoyed the outdoor areas. The upper level porch off the master bedroom was very pleasant. The location is convenient but private feeling. No need for a car. We all biked everywhere all week. The vegetation surrounding the property is beautiful and adds to the privacy. The only complaint I heard about the property was that the downstairs mattress needed to be replaced. We would definitely stay here again.

-Kim on 04/02/2014

 

"Awesome experience for the entire family from 11 months to 80 ye"

5 of 5

We loved the privacy and security of the house. All family members enjoyed the quiet time at the house and the party atmosphere within walking distance. We had day trips and enjoyed every day's adventure.
