This Historic and Impossibly Colorful Key West Mansion is Being Sold for the Second Time in 153 Years
724 Eaton Street, Key West, Florida
We’d be lying if we said that Key West’s Freeman-Curry House is a once-in-a-lifetime find. It’s more like a once-in-two-lifetimes find.
Unlike many of its neighbors, this iconic mansion has changed hands only once in its 153 years. And now, nearly 100 years after its first stint on the market, the vibrant estate at 724 Eaton Street is available yet again—only this time there’s a $5,700,000 price tag attached.
A frequent stop on tours of historic local landmarks, this 3,176-square-foot beauty is the perfect example of old-world craftmanship meets Key West whimsy. Seriously, name a color and you can find it represented somewhere inside this seven-bed, six-bath home. But don’t let the bold palette fool you: it also boasts heaps of timeless class. Outside, a two-story front porch and a sprawling lanai make for outdoor tropical living, while a turn-key detached apartment unit is primed for money making.
