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.
