In the Heart of Key West

Currently owned by legendary Dale Earnhardt Jr, the property is in the heart of Old Town, Key West, Florida. “This truly is a unique property steeped in rich and mysterious history,” says listing agent Bob Cardenas of Ocean Sotheby’s International Realty. “One of the highlights of the home is, undoubtedly, its secret hatch door in the parlor, which has been a part of the house since its inception.

This five-bedroom, three-full- and 1-half bath home, listed for $3.7 million, was built in 1863 during the Civil War era, and it retains most of its original architecture that was lovingly maintained. It has one of the deepest and largest pools in Key West, reportedly being about 13 to 14 feet deep. A gate from the second-floor porch opens allowing daring (or crazy) individuals to jump off the second floor into the pool. 

The kitchen was artfully designed by Earnhardt to resemble the inside of a pirate ship, including a large ships wheel at the end of the bar, bringing in a taste of another era of Key West history. A legal guest house at the other side of the huge lot is currently one huge bedroom, however the owner had planned to turn it into two bedrooms and one bath. His local contractor has the plans and estimated costs ready for construction. This house must be seen to be appreciated. 

This is your chance to buy a bit of Key West history, along with a unique house with serious celebrity status!

No other property would be better suited for an issue devoted to prestige properties than the palatial waterfront mansion in Coral Gables, Florida, featured on our cover. It’s not often family, Miami and a palatial residence are mentioned in this same sentence, but that’s what makes this property is so spectacular.

The gated community of Gables Estates offers the ultimate in security, including patrols on the water. It’s not unusual to see children out on bikes and neighbors walking dogs here. Nearby are some of the best schools in the Miami. That’s one of many reasons why those who know the area see Gables Estates as one of the best neighborhoods, explains Sandra Fiorenza with ONE Sotheby’s International Realty, who is representing the property.

The 14,443 square foot residence itself offers a huge measure of security with concrete construction and windows that exceed hurricane standards. The exterior is clad with marble, and the same stone — all from a single source — is used on covered balconies and lanais that overlook an infi nity pool and the blue of the wide lagoon. Inside, light dances throughout the home. A neutral palate becomes an ideal backdrop to showcase exquisite details such as Venetian plaster and carved plaster moldings, marble columns and stone carvings. The overall effect is elegant and restrained. 

An extensive master suite with his and her bathrooms occupies one wing of the second floor with an additional four en-suite bedrooms in an opposite wing. The home also has two offices, private staff quarters and a wine cellar. The site on the largest lagoon in Gables Estates also offers access to deep water and the ocean. With a new seawall and 140-foot dock, this could be the ultimate Miami home, as well as a perfect family compound. It’s easy to see why those who know the area see Gables Estates as one of the best places to call home. This Ultimate compound is priced at $25.9 million.
