You may think of them strictly as a NASCAR family, but Dale and Amy Earnhardt are quite the home renovators, as well. Just last week, the Earnhardts listed their five-bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home in Key West, Florida for a whopping $3.7 million.
As a former NASCAR driver and current NBC broadcaster, it’s not Dale Earnhardt Jr. was strapped for cash by any means. But, with Amy being a successful interior designer (and Junior picking up some home renovation skills of his own), the Earnhardts have developed even more opportunities to make serious bank. Good for them!
Dale Earnhardt Jr. Key West Home
Built in Key West’s historic Old Town district in 1863, this 3,306 square-foot home still has most of its original architecture, while also boasting a number of cool features. For one, the pirate-themed kitchen (designed by Dale himself) features skull-and-crossbone furnishing and a large ship wheel at the end of the bar. There’s also a one-bedroom guesthouse that can be converted into a two-bedroom, one-bath residence.
On top of that, the house also features a hidden hatch door that lets you look into the parlor and an incredible second-floor porch overlooking the pool. The porch even has a gate, so if you’re feeling particularly dangerous, you can cannonball off the top and into the water below.
Speaking of the pool, it’s reportedly one of the deepest and largest in Key West, at 13 to 14 feet deep. Whoever ends up buying the place could throw one hell of a pool party!
According to records, the home last changed hands in 2009 for $2.4 million, so the Earnhardts stand to make quite the pretty penny from their latest real estate project. You can check out dozens of pictures of the Civil War-era home, from the living room and dining room to the massive master bedroom, on the website for Ocean Sotheby’s International Realty.
Renovation Realities: Dale Jr. & Amy
As you may know, this isn’t the Earnhardts first foray into lucrative home renovation.
Back in 2018, they were featured on the special, four-part DIY Network series, “Renovation Realities: Dale Jr. & Amy,” where they fixed up another historic Key West home. It ended up getting listed for $2.6 million and sold fairly quickly.
The Earnhardts clearly seem to have the Midas touch when it comes to home improvement!
