Shipwrecked in Paradise
Welcome to "Shipwrecked in Paradise"! Historic Key West Eyebrow House with private pool. ONE block to Duval, the Hemingway House, and the Lighthouse. Four blocks to the Southernmost Point. Our home is full of Key West charm. It was built by shipbuilders in the Classical Revival style called an Eyebrow House that created an awning to block the harsh sun in the late 1800's. Dade County Pine was used throughout, giving it a "boat" and "Key Westy" feel.... or "shiplap" as we call it today!
Newly purchased and newly renovated in August 2020. New furniture, new bedding, new linens, fresh paint, new bathroom in master, new outdoor furniture.
