A live-work space in paradise
Location: Key West, Florida
You may think of breezy seaside villas and palm trees when you imagine the Florida Keys, but this four-bedroom, five-bath beauty proves that there are also plenty of historic gems. Constructed at the turn of the nineteenth century using a stone found only in the Keys, the building functioned as the Saint Stephen AME Zion Church until 1979.
Built in the Gothic Revival style, the church features a steeply pitched gable roof, pointed arch windows, and a low tower. Inside, cathedral ceilings boast exposed wood beams and antique stained glass windows let in filtered light. No longer used for religious purposes, the building features 2,100 square feet of commercial space that’s currently functioning as an art gallery.
The remaining 2,700 square feet consists of a two-bedroom—plus loft—bedroom, complete with a European-style courtyard and patio. It’s also set in an ideal location: One block south of the Hemingway House and only a few blocks away from the southernmost point.
This live-work space in paradise is on the market now for $2,599,000.
