Albury Court was recently featured on the cable channel Home & Garden TV, on their program National Open House. The program examines “what you can get for your money” when buying real estate in different cities around the country. The producers of National Open House selected a condominium at Albury Court to showcase what you get for $250,000 in Key West, Florida. The program also featured Key West homes that were valued at $500,000 and $750,000.
The condo unit featured on National Open House is owned by Albury Court Hotel owner, Julia Fondriest. The Albury Court complex, at the corner of Eaton and Frances Streets in Old Town Key West, includes 38 hotel rooms, plus 4 privately-owned, residential condominiums. Julie’s condo is a “studio” with 450 square feet of space. Its a second floor unit, tucked into the roof-line behind the lobby of Albury Court.
Julie reflects are her new stardom:
“I am a big fan of HGTV. It was a treat to participate in the National Open House program. The crew took a lot of time to shoot video around the hotel and inside my condo. They did a great job of making my 450 square feet look very spacious!”
The first showing of the program aired on Nov 14. There will likely be several repeat runs of the episode in the coming months.
