Located in one of Key West's most striking gated waterfront luxury neighborhoods, Foundry on the Waterfront vacation rental provides a unique opportunity to enjoy a modern condominium, constructed within an important piece of historic American architecture. Situated along the gateway waterfront to the island of Key West, the magnificent brick structure that houses this residence was originally built around 1845 as an iron works at the then Fort Zachary Taylor Military Annex. Constructed in the impressive Spanish Colonial style, the clean and simple architectural lines of this period were originally designed to imbue a sense of civic pride. Even today this classic brick building evokes a sentimental remembrance about the U.S. when American democracy was in its infancy.
Creatively renovated in the 1990's by a local private developer, this beautiful historic foundry structure was re-designed as mid-rise condominium residences in what is now known as the residential neighborhood of "Truman Annex." This upscale island neighborhood was renamed for President Harry Truman who spent his winters in at the Annex at his home known as "The Little White House." His famous residence, which is now a museum, is just down the street from the Foundry on the Waterfront.
The renovation of this unique property created an expansive modern condominium with high ceilings, few interior walls, lots of French windows and a graceful classic entrance. The front entrance is a private little manicured garden complete with roomy sitting porch. Double French doors painted white, with transom windows lead into the open air living room and galley kitchen. Extra high ceilings trimmed with wide crown molding and set in ceiling lights, create an uplifting effect. Classic wall molding, large marble tile floors and granite counter tops were added for a touch of luxurious elegance.
The tri-level design of this vacation rental accommodation maximizes the use of space and creates privacy with three distinct living areas. The first floor of this residence is comprised of the living room, kitchen, and a powder room (half-bath) with designer fixtures. An eclectic grouping of furnishings blends a traditional and tropical motif. The addition of an artistic oversize ceiling fan, built with unique blades made fishing poles and canvas, offers extra breeze and anchors the decor. An elegant oak stair case with painted white risers leads to the stair landing made artistic with an archway.
The stair case continues to the second floor where you find the first spacious bedroom, and a full designer bath. The second floor also houses the conveniently located laundry center hidden behind closet doors. The stair case then leads to the third floor where you find the second spacious bedroom and a full second designer bathroom. Both bedrooms are carpeted and nicely furnished with a tropical motif. Each bedroom offers a queen size bed. Large windows in each bedroom allow you to invite the sunshine in and offer a nice view of the beautiful grounds below.
Grounds: The resort-style swimming pool for this row house complex property is found around the corner to the front side of the building, and then "kitty-corner" across the lane. The setting is immaculate and beautifully landscaped complete with lounge chairs for sunning and cabana pool garden area for relaxing in the shade. Another wonderful feature of this residence is one private designated parking space which is located just outside the little front garden entrance to this unit.
Note: This townhome, Foundry on the Waterfront, is the identical floor plan and in the same townhome complex as you find in our Island Brownstone and Truman Treasure. The main difference is the interior décor.

“This was one of the best vacations I have been on. The house was perfect and had everything I possibly needed, down to the beach chairs and umbrella. The location, in the Truman Annex, made all the difference. Only 2 blocks from Duval and 4 blocks from Mallory Square, but so quiet and peaceful at night. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go! I would highly recommend VHKW.
