The annual Key West Home Tours™ are one of the oldest and longest running home tours in America, with the first tour in 1960. Old Island Restoration Foundation (OIRF) conducts the tours and they are funded in part by our generous supporters. Each tour features five lovely homes and gardens reflecting the varied tastes and originality of their owners.

You will be enchanted by exquisite restorations, creative renovations and delightful interiors featuring art collections, antiques, and much more. All proceeds from the tours stay in our local community fulfilling OIRF’s mission of “Celebrating and sustaining Key West’s unique architecture, culture and history.” Grants are provided to local home owners and non-profits to fix up their buildings in the historic district, scholarships are provided to Key West High School students and funds are used to maintain Key West Oldest House Museum and Garden.

NOTE: There is no transportation offered between homes during this event. This is a walking or biking tour.

House 1, 1301 Flagler: Recent new life given to this 1943 grand-style home boasts varieties of wood: Original Dade County pine, cypress walls, hardwood floors. While the L-shaped open-floor plan radiates contemporary convenience, wide porches, vaulted bedroom ceiling and reproduction hardware retain its roots. Home #1-1301 Flagler Avenue

House 2, 744 Windsor: The dramatic contemporary entrance opens to a magnificent hyphen house, wherein an 1800s Conch house merges with an old general store to form 5,600sf of modern living. Indoor/outdoor entertaining is a natural around the pool on the 13,000sf lot. Plan to spend a lot of time gawking. Home #2 – 744 Windsor Lane

House 3, 328 William: Gingerbread trim, a cozy front porch and flowering vines on white picket fences resonate with the 1860 “Birthday Cake House” moniker. Add Christmas decorations to this antique recipe and a sweet icing finishes on a contemporary rear addition with in-house Pilates gym.
Home #3 – 328 William Street 

House 4, 724 Eaton: Constructed during the Civil War by a Key West shipbuilder, this regal mansion is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. So much to see in its 5,881sf—historic mural in the ballroom, rare curved door/window casings, and equally rare, the private Harley Motorcycle Museum out back. Home #4 – 724 Eaton Street

House 5, 600 Eaton: This Methodist house of God features a manger scene out front and indoors, exquisite art-glass windows and 12 hanging lanterns; hand-carved mahogany, teak wood and Dade County pine that defies termite damage. Tour the church and Memorial Honor Walkway, for it is Christmas, after all. Home #5 – 600 Eaton Street

To instill even more holiday spirit, three of Key West’s finest old homes are partnering during OIRFs 60th home tour celebration for rambling pleasure at your convenience: The Oldest House at 322 Duval; The Key West Woman’s Club at 319 Duval, and the Amsterdam’s Curry Mansion at 511 Caroline Street. No scheduled tours, but houses open Dec 27 & 28 3-6p.m.
