Just Listed!, but not by me, 923 Eaton Street in the Old Town area of Key West, Florida. If you are a frequent visitor to Key West, you have surely driven or walked by 921 and 923 Eaton Street, the two side-by-side gems that rival the famous "Painted Ladies" of San Francisco. Although not as elaborate, the Key West Ladies speak to the simplicity of design that characterize many of the houses in the Old Town area. In his book The Houses of Key West Alex Caemmerer wrote "What particularly impressed me at that time, although many of these houses were small and owned by people of modest means - mostly local workers, they had a simplicity of line and an aura aura of elegance and dignity which had the same effect on one as does, for instance, a simple Bach tune."
Now you may think my comparison of the Painted Ladies in San Francisco to the more modest Key West Ladies is a stretch. You might be correct but consider that Alex Caemmerer selected the modest house at 921 Eaton Street as the cover photo for his book about Key West houses.
