Description:

Designed by renowned architect, Fred Henderich, 287 St George St remains the signature Arts & Crafts bungalow in St Augustine’s residential Historic District. Native palm porch posts were his trademark and they present beautifully on the broad wraparound front porch. Traditional cypress shingles are complemented by period colors crisply accenting the detail. With over 2,000SF of thoughtfully renovated and lovingly preserved living space, this traditional home suits modern lifestyles with ease.

A dipping pool in the walled courtyard waits for spring to return but a carriage house studio apartment above detached garage knows no season as there will always be a waiting list of family and friends. Original oak floors, heart pine wainscot and beamed ceilings add rich wood patina to living and dining rooms. The coquina fireplace is a thing of beauty all year round. Living and dining open to each and adjacent sun room makes for a cozy den with a wall of built-ins for your media equipment. A splendid eat-in kitchen will inspire your culinary muse with its abundance of African red granite and Brookhaven pine cabinets. Wall ovens and separate cook-top can prepare a mighty feast and two or more chefs can choreograph any meal. Micro-office workstation at the back of the kitchen overlooks porch, pool and gardens. En-suite, 1st floor master has heated French vanilla marble floors, jetted soaking tub and Italian verde marble vanity. A 2nd en-suite downstairs opens to porch while upstairs en-suite overlooks historic Llambias House and gardens.

An oversized single garage holds car and workshop (driveway can hold 3 vehicles), but the tree-house studio is the cupcake! Vaulted wood ceiling and 3 walls of windows add volume and natural light to this welcoming space. Presently an office, there is a 3/4 bath, for overnight visitors or paying guests. Rentals must be 30 days or more. In immaculate move-in condition with a coveted address, a 3-block stroll takes you to everything downtown!
