Chesney Already Selling Key West Home

posted January 30th, 2009 at 7:00 pm

by Josh Martn

Kenny Chesney is already selling the Key West home he recently purchased, due to the unwanted attention it has drawn to the neighborhood:

Following local media reports about a house he purchased in Key West, Fla., Kenny Chesney has decided against moving in and now plans to sell the property. Photos and details of the house were widely circulated on the Internet, and one Web site based in Key West printed the exact address of the estate. Chesney reportedly paid $5.7 million for the 7,000-square-foot house.

In a statement released by his record label, Chesney said, “It’s funny how you can be moving out before you even move in. I may have been naive to think I could just go down to the Keys and disappear, because that was the idea. I wanted to find a place where I could just be and thought I’d found it. But with all the buzz since we signed the papers, the last thing I want to do to some place I love as much as Key West is change the dynamics, especially for the locals who have been so good to me, so I’m stopping the insanity before it begins. The ‘for sale’ sign is back up, and I’m just not going to be able to take possession of the house.”

Chesney Purchases Key West Mansion

Kenny Chesney has apparently purchased a 5.7 million dollar mansion on Caroline Street in Key West, according to

The Keys’ rumor mill has been churning out reports that country music superstar Kenny Chesney bought a house in Key West — and it looks like it’s true.

According to records from the Monroe County Clerk of the Court’s Web site dated Jan. 20, a company called Falcon 200 Inc., presumably acting on Chesney’s behalf, purchased the house for $5.7 million from previous owners Nicholas and Susan Trivisonno.

It just so happens that Chesney owns a 12-passenger Falcon 200 jet made by Dassault Aviation.

Then, on Tuesday morning, a United Parcel Service delivery notice addressed to Kenny Chesney was seen sticking out of the gate at 425 Caroline St. in Old Town, just off Duval Street.


The Caroline Street house is one of Key West’s most notable properties. Called the W. Hunt Harris House, the five-bedroom, 7.5-bath home was constructed in 1898.

The nearly 7,000 square feet of living space includes 13-foot ceilings, a top-of-the-line cook’s kitchen and a 1,500-bottle custom wine room capable of running off generator power.

A guesthouse in the large backyard, built in 2007, includes more living area and a private gym. The spacious grounds boast a 42-by-18-foot heated swimming pool and a wet bar complete with icemaker, granite countertops and teak cabinetry.
