Street View

Located on the southernmost tropical island in the us with average winter highs of 75 and average summer highs of 88, the curry-freeman house, circa 1865, is one of the oldest private residences in the florida keys. Custom-built by a prosperous seafaring merchant and ship-builder, the mansion was constructed by old world craftsmen using only the finest materials available at a time when key west flourished as one of the richest cities in the country. Since inception, the home has been a center of political and social prominence. Many family members have been and remain recognized pillars of the community, serving as elected public officials and hosts of countless political, civic and cultural affairs. The stately structure has withstood the test of time. Imposing double front porches, ornate gingerbread, vibrant colors and elegant woodwork help create this island icon. Grand public spaces, including an historic ballroom, graceful entryway and formal dining room have 12-foot ceilings, elaborate millwork and dramatic decor. The main house has plenty of space for family and guests with three bedrooms and three baths. Located in the rear of the property is a "carriage house. " circa 1959, this detached building consists of three legal apartments with an additional four bedrooms and three baths. These rooms are perfect for guests, staff or continued use as a rental investment. The surprise is a private museum currently housed in the two-bay garage. In a world to itself, the spacious back porch overlooks a park-like setting. Mindful of the historic structure, the covered space respectfully creates the indoor/outdoor lifestyle for which key west is famous. Swaying palms in tropical breezes, flowering trees and the wide-open greenery create a place compelling time out for relaxation over drinks with friends and family. Or, perhaps an outdoor dinner party for 100 or more of your closest friends comes to mind. Whatever the occasion or mood, there is no other setting in key west to compare. Old world charm, peerless craftsmanship, amazing history and tropical splendor live harmoniously at 724 eaton street. Invest today in a key west icon.
