Built in 1845, this classic conch house in the heart of old Key West has been through a lot. Apparently owned by one of Key West's founding families, the house is built with Dade County Pine, which can still be seen in the stair hall, living room, and master bedroom, has bright green shutters opening out to the front verandah, and is surrounded by a white picket fence. It's also got a freeform pool, and an interior decor job that is just so Martha-Stewart-comes-to-Key-West perfect it's insane.
One of the things Key West is known for is its large collection of historic 'conch' houses that line the streets of the old, seafaring city, but what if you wanted a new island place that was just as historic but really stood out from the crowd? The old Saint Stephen AME Zion Church at 330 Julia Street, which was built in 1900 by freed slaves, has popped on the market for $2.599 million.
The brokerbabble calls this joint an 'Extraordinary Estate,' and you know what, it's hit the nail on the head with that one. This Key West bungalow, built in 1933, is listed for $6.25 million. It's practically a compound, with four buildings on a generous piece of land, a lagoon-shaped pool, and an aesthetic that's a more tasteful version of Jimmy Buffett chic. It's located at 908 Fleming Street.
