Key West House Information:

The nearly 6,000 square foot Spanish Mediterranean style five bedroom, four and a half bathroom House is located in Key Haven, a community on Raccoon Key about a mile east of the island of Key West. The House sits on 32,000 square feet of waterfront property. In addition to the House, the property includes a tennis court, a separate building housing an indoor racquetball court and gym, 60 feet of open dock space, and two vacant lots that sit on the corner of a canal and open water. The lease between R.W. Productions, Inc. and property owner Andrew Lippi was from June 28 until December 30th 2005 with a one month option, and included all buildings on the property and the two adjacent lots. View the lease (from www.keywesttravelguide.com).

"The 1st floor foyer opens up into a vaulted ceiling room overlooking open water views. The centerpiece of the house is a 12 by 20 foot indoor pool and spa. Off of that room is the open kitchen and bar, a formal dining room, living room and a den. There is also a bedroom and two bathrooms. The 2nd floor houses the master bedroom suite with walk-in closets and a bathroom with both a shower and a Jacuzzi tub with water views. The master bedroom also has an indoor balcony, which overlooks the pool in the foyer. In addition to the master bedroom, there are three additional bedrooms on the 2nd floor that share a bathroom. The laundry room is also located on the 2nd floor."

The filming of The Real World Key West encountered many problems, including a litigious neighbor, Hurriane Rita and Hurricane Wilma.

The Key West House is currently available for rent.
