Historic Conch House Near Seaport: 923 Eaton Street

If you’re looking for a classic Conch house in old town, I’ve got a deal for you! The house at 923 Eaton Street is among the oldest on the island, and has been completely renovated to its full glory inside and out!

Watch the virtual tour here:

Originally called one of the “painted ladies” of Eaton Street, this two-story, three-bedroom, two-bath home was built in the early 1900s or possibly even before the turn of the century. (You’ll note the year built listed as 1933 in the MLS, but many of those dates are not historically accurate.) Regardless of the true date, this home is steeped in Key West history.

The current owners have been busily cleaning, painting, upgrading and renovating this home for the past year. The transformation from only a few months ago is truly amazing! Brand new hardwood floors have been installed and the walls have been stripped of layers and layers of paint to reveal original Dade county pine, restored to its natural beauty. Additional updates have been made to the bathrooms and kitchen, tile flooring and roof.

The bright, open kitchen is located just off a small living area with sliding glass to the backyard. It’s been updated with new Corian countertops and appliances, which mesh nicely with the original colorful tile backsplash and solid wood cabinetry.

There are two full bathrooms, one on the lower level and one upstairs. Two large bedrooms are also located on the second floor, and a third bedroom on the first floor is currently being used as a laundry/storage room. The total square footage for the home is 1,320 square feet on two floors.

One of the home’s best features is its large lot (2,813 square feet) and huge, private, fenced-in backyard complete with brick pavers and mature foliage. With this sized lot, there’s plenty of room for expansion, a large pool and/or a guest cottage. Some additional TLC and landscaping in the backyard would make this a true private island paradise!

Eaton Street is a thoroughfare in Key West, just three blocks from the Historic Seaport, known for its boardwalk, restaurants, bars and the starting point for most snorkel and sailing tours in Key West. Within a block, you’ll find Old Town Bakery, Paseo Restaurant and Finnegan’s Wake Irish pub. You’re truly able to walk to almost any Key West icon from this location.

Don’t wait! The current listing price is $598,900 or $453.71 per square foot of indoor living space. Now is a great time to invest in Key West! Contact me at 305-304-1708, to make an appointment to view this property before it’s too late.
