Dale Jr. and Amy Earnhardt have sold one of their Key West houses that they’ve worked on over the last few years for a cool $3,000,000 after purchasing it for $2.4 million in 2009. The five-bedroom, five-bath house received the Earnhardt touch with a kitchen/bar area that features a ship wheel, themed paintings on walls and a great view of the pool.
Junior and Amy, an interior designer, have starred on renovation shows featuring their work on Key West properties. Renovation Realities: Dale Jr. & Amy was a four-part series on DIY showing off the work that these two have done. The real value on this 3,300 sq. ft. house that they’ve sold is in its size — five bedrooms! — and its location. We’re talking about a .4 mile walk to Sloppy Joe’s and just .6 to Mallory Square.
From the original listing:
This is a one of a kind house, currently owned by legendary Dale Earnhardt Jr. The property is in the heart of Old Town and is steeped in a rich and mysterious history, complete with a secret hidden hatch door to observe people in the parlor. This five-bedroom, three and a half bathroom home 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 ship’s wheel at the end of the bar.
Take a look at the work Junior and Amy put into this one. Don’t forget to dream of hitting the Powerball so you can buy a place like this to use as a hideout from your money-grubbing family members.
