Saint Augustine, Florida

A Favorite House in a Beloved Historic Neighborhood

Welcome home
Welcome home
With its palette of perpetual spring green dotted by bursts of color from the garden and front door, this is a favorite house in a beloved historic neighborhood. Renovated with great care and deliberation, the original is pleased with the results. Deep and wide, the front porch defines the generous proportions and openness you will experience across the threshold. The entry foyer is alive with sunshine coming from the casement windows flanking the front door and the paned half moon above it.

Simply delicious living across the street from the beautiful intracoastal waterway

Rich colors adorn the living and dining rooms while cooler tones prevail in the sunroom and the spectacular eat-in kitchen. Large eight over eight windows, original cove mouldings and a brick fireplace present themselves beautifully in the living room which also catches the light from the adjacent sunroom. A perfect office or library, the bookshelves are already built in so long as you are not distracted by the pool and gardens in your view.

Just past the informal eating area, the kitchen would please anyone who is passionate about cooking and entertaining. With four separate workstations, including an eight foot cooking island, there is room for all. A formal dining room off the kitchen and foyer is ripe to receive all the friends and family waiting for their invitation to dine. A half bath under the stairs is both handy and out of the way.

The graceful oak stair leads to a sunny gallery where you can sit in the sunshine and look across the porch and peek at the water beyond. En-suite master quarters occupy the south half of the second floor with windows on the east, west and south walls. A large room with versatility for furniture arrangements to suit your needs. The guest bedrooms take up the north side with a shared bath in between. The northwest bedroom has a double window nook which calls for a comfortable reading chair.

Step outside from the sunroom or the kitchen onto the covered porch or open deck and take in the expansive yard with lovely oaks providing shade at the back while the pool basks in the sunshine. The original garage has been pressed into service as a gardening room, but look closely at its architectural detail - it's quite intricate. A wonderful warm home for old house lovers, in an architecturally and historically rich neighborhood that has evolved for over a century -we'll be waiting for you on the porch.

St Augustine, the nation’s oldest city, also holds the distinction of being one of the nation’s most charming. Known as the “Ancient City,” Saint Augustine is a quaint coastal town located in northeast Florida. The area boasts a year-round mild climate perfect for enjoying the pristine beaches or strolling in St Augustine’s delightful historic district, with its cobblestone streets, quaint cafes, unique shops and bed-and-breakfast inns.

Saint Augustine has been named as one of the Top 10 Places for History Buffs to Retire by U.S. News and World Report 2010, and is also listed as one of the Top 100 Places to Live in 2010 by RelocateAmerica.
