Houses of Key West Part 1, The Calvin Klein House

712 Eaton Street is interesting for a couple of reasons.  Primarily I love it for the shape and design - it being a beautiful proportioned octagonal house.  It is also known for previous owners/residents; Angelo Donghia in the 70's and Calvin Klein in the 80's.

Standing since 1885, it was built for Richard Peacon, who was the owner of Key West's leading grocery store located at 800 Fleming Street and who later became a founding director of the Island city National Bank.

Pictured below are photos of the house.  The first from the Calvin Klein heydays of 1983, and the second a photo I snapped for posterity two days ago.
