TAMPOA President Leaving Truman Annex?

Tom Tukey, president of the Truman Annex Master Property Assn. (TAMPOA), has his and his wife's Truman Annex house up for sale.

List price is $5.3 million. The house is described in the MLS as:

"Stately, showcase home. Grandly placed at the heart of the finest street in the most elegant enclave on the Island yet within walking distance to dining, shopping and entertainment. Built with an eye to historic aesthetics but with the most demanding modern construction; far above current code. 10' ceilings, crown and base moulding, mahogany floors throughout. Six bedrooms; all with walk in closets, full baths, French doors and porches. Seventh full bath near living area and office/library. Enormous great room. Solar heated pool. Double carport. Large Captain's walk with spectacular water views. Over 1000 SF of decks plus over 1000 SF of storage in addition to the 4572 SF of living space. Simply the pinnacle of Key West living."

The offering price equates to $1,159.23 per square foot.

Included in the listing are photos of the interior, exterior, and water views. The water view photo (included in this post, above) is interesting: according to the photo the Tukeys had a view of the water, the Navy's outer mole, and the Truman Waterfront property. This view would certainly change when the City begins to redevelop the Truman Waterfront.

Maybe Tom is running out of cats to nap? Maybe he sees the handwriting on the wall, i.e., he's going to have to spend a bundle to fund his lawsuit on keeping Southard Street his own driveway now that the Navy has told him to shove it? Maybe he's tired of being the brunt of so many local's jokes?

In the meantime, here's one of my most recent blogs on a Key West bartender who is keeping his home by adding on roomates.

I believe you and I will be hearing more stories like these in the near future:
