There is an apartment in the house that could easily be incorporated into main house or rented out. The house was completely restored and received a Gold Medal award in 1999 from the House and Garden Tour. Five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and 2,587 square feet. $1,639,000

From the Zillow listing:


The ”Golden Heron” House (circa. 1906) allows you to step back in time into the grandeur and splendor of a bygone Key West. A true island landmark this stately home with 5 bedrooms (including apartment that can be incorporated into main house) and 3 full/2 half baths is named after the hand-painted heron murals and artwork throughout the interior by noted artist Rolf Herzog. It has been renovated to retain the original aura and majesty as illustrated by its Gold Metal award in the 1999 House and Garden Tour. Etched mahogany front doors open to Dade County post and beam construction, 11 foot ceilings, and a secluded, open-air side-deck combines with a pool and lush tropical landscaped lot to form a serene and private environment for beautiful Key West indoor-outdoor enjoyment.
