This magnificent Historic Seaport Harbor compound is located just across the street from the waterfront boardwalk. Totaling 6 bedrooms and 6 1/2 bathrooms throughout two wonderful structures, this property is laid out with attention to every detail. The large 8,370 Sq. Ft. lot is spread from Elizabeth Street around to Dey Street. The many porches and decks, rooftop patios, balconies and breezeways make for incredible outdoor living opportunities. The beautiful pool courtyard located between the two structures is perfect for relaxing or large groups.210/214 Elizabeth Street, 'Portside', began simply as the 'fishing net shack, just off the docks'. Key West Bight in those days was filled to over capacity with shrimp boats and the very small shops serving the dynamic fishing fleet. It was here, at Elizabeth and Green, that the property first had a 'shrimp net' repair workshop. The shrimp nets were dried, stretched, and sewn across the property.It is widely reported that years later, the old Navy Base's BOQ (bachelor officers' quarters) made of cedar plank and peg construction, was moved to the property while still early in its history. That original structure still stands after numerous renovations and expansions. This extensive corner lot is now complete with the original home, a breezeway connected cottage, and finally, a second, fully separate home designed under the guidance of Key West's Historical Architectural Review Commission. The second home is constructed exclusively with tongue and groove hard wood interiors and nearly indestructible Hardie Board exterior planking. This property's second home is also plumbed and wired for the addition of a kitchenette if needed. Every addition, every upgrade, every feature brought to this unique property by the owners over the last 35 years, was accomplished with a mind to preserve and enhance the character of Old Town and its historic Seaport.
