Description:

How does one begin to tell the tale of this singular home in 2,000 characters? It’s one of only 35 remaining colonial structures in the Oldest City and even rarer, it’s one of very few dating back to the First Spanish Period. Historically rich, aesthetically beautiful, a notable landmark in the city’s fabric, built to last another century or two, loved by the locals and admired by visitors, it’s a precious jewel. Located one block from the plaza, you are squarely in the heart of downtown.

Enter the compound through the gate and take note of how deliciously private it feels inside the walled courtyard. With a decidedly European ambiance and our temperate climate, you’ll spend as much time outside as you will in. The recent addition of a 665SF 3-car garage with a fully equipped 1/1 carriage house above solves the age-old problem of parking, storage and what to do with extended-stay guests. Brick patios and a wide driveway separate the main residence from the garages and the electric gate is remotely controlled for ease of passage.

Living, dining, kitchen and music room all open off the main hall. High ceilings with exposed beams add rustic texture in contrast with smooth walls and polished wide plank floors from the 1820 . You’ll find 3 capped fireplaces downstairs and the original coquina hearth which has been preserved and there are 2 more upstairs. A sunlit kitchen is at the heart with a generous island anchoring the room. 2 patios are just outside the door for al fresco entertaining.

Upstairs, a large en-suite master has two outfitted walk-in closets and an expansive bathroom. Guest room is served by hall bathroom and the upstairs gallery looks out to some wonderful antique buildings. 3rd floor is ready to be whatever you desire and it has a 3/4 bath in place.

The 1/1 carriage house is a treat with full kitchen, living and dining areas and a porch that boasts a view of more architectural gems.

A signature home for which there can be no substitute. Welcome…
