A historic home in Jupiter, Florida built in 1924 hit the market asking $1.65 million.

Serving as the DuBois family’s former Florida honeymoon cottage, the charming home sits on 1.09 acres with 100 feet of river frontage.

The DuBois family was among Jupiter’s pioneers, which is evidenced by the fact the estate is located on a street named DuBois Lane that’s adjacent to DuBois Park. It has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and is within walking distance of the beach. John Rue DuBois, the family’s eldest son, preserved artifacts found on their property that were later examined by the Florida State Museum.

Among the two-bedroom home’s features are a metal roof, impact windows and doors, pine wood throughout, a dual fireplace, and a set of stairs leading to an attic that used to be inside the Jupiter Lighthouse, per the listing, which is held by Carla Christenson of One Sotheby’s.

The Florida property last sold for $595,500 in 2012.
