Description:

Lived in and loved for 33 years, the owners have moved on to their new adventure and invite you to become the next family to create treasured memories here. A favorite house in a beloved North City neighborhood, this welcoming brick colonial has had only 3 families over the past 90 years which speaks volumes. Designed by noted architect, F A Hollingsworth, this legacy residence was built for the Honorable Frank D Upchurch whose grandchildren and their children still call St Augustine home.

Known as the “estate section” of the city, Nelmar Terrace enjoys 1/4 acre lots, live oaks, sidewalks and a mix of architectural styles. Flanked by soon-to-be fragrant gardenias, a herringbone brick path leads to a columned portico and front door. Generous living and dining rooms flank the center hall and feature gleaming wood floors which complement crisp white moldings and original arched doorways. Double-sided gas fireplace in living and family rooms patiently waits for cool days and chilly evenings. Large rooms easily handle multiple furniture groupings with easy flow between them and the dining room. Butler’s pantry/breakfast room retains glass-fronted cabinets from 1927 and swinging doors to dining and kitchen. Handy 1/2 bath at the end of the hall serves day and dinner guests.

Upstairs a wide gallery around the stairway splits master from guest rooms with a 7′ built-in cupboard for linens, holiday decorations and anything else you need to store. En-suite, master has a cedar walk-in plus 2 additional closets. 2 spacious bedrooms on the west side share a bath. Out back the 34′ x 37′ brick courtyard is ready for action be it entertaining, container gardening, grilling and dining al fresco or all of the above – you’ll definitely find yourself hosting gatherings of all sizes.

And finally we come to the 1,304SF 3-car garage built 16 years ago and the envy of the neighborhood! A home for cars, boat, bikes, kayaks and there’s an air-conditioned workshop/office. Welcome home….
