When most people think of Key West neighborhoods, they think of the beautiful homes that New England sea captains built here, in the style of homes in their hometowns of Gloucester, New Bedford, Kennebunkport, Mystic, Provincetown, Newport, Chatham, and others. Or, they may think of the conch houses that were brought over from the Bahamas, and homes built here subsequently in that style. Others may also think of Hemingway’s French Mediterranean style home, the only one of that style on the island.
Key West, after all, is an island one hundred and six miles out to sea. On the south side is The Atlantic Ocean/Straights of Florida and the north side is The Gulf of Mexico.
