Dale Earnhardt Jr may be known for racing skills but did you know that he's also skilled at renovating homes too? Dale Jr, and his wife Amy, buy old houses and then completely transform them. Their first home renovation was caught on tape. You can see the full transformation, from start to finish, in the reality TV series called "Renovation Realities." The second home they renovated is located in Key West. It's a five bedroom home that was built in 1863. The home has a pirate theme and although that may sound like a turn off to some, it's actually STUNNING!!!!
The house is listed with Bob and Debbie Cardenas of Ocean Sotheby's International Real Estate for $3,700,000. Their description of the property says, "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 5 Bedroom 3.5 bath 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 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!"
