Description:

Living on St George St is about embracing life in the slow lane. Tree-lined sidewalks run past wonderful historic homes where a rich variety of architectural styles is admired by locals and visitors alike. Neighbors wave as they pass by on their bikes or with their dogs and there’s usually time for a chat.

294 St George St is nestled in the middle of almost a 1/3 acre allowing for a deep front garden and large sunny back yard overlooking Lake Maria Sanchez. Presenting as a quintessential cottage from the street, there’s a full grown house behind that traditional facade just waiting to be discovered. With a respectful nod to the original character, the owners combined restoration with a thoughtful addition to create a home for today’s lifestyle without compromise to those very details that first caught their gaze.

Wraparound front porch is just the place for morning coffee so you can watch the sun rise while the birds waken and sing. Enter the living room and take a minute to admire the lovely wainscot walls trimmed with classic moldings, beamed ceiling and a fireplace built from locally quarried coquina. A lovely room to gather with friends and family – a window seat under the diamond-paned windows will not lack for company. Adjacent dining room will host your favorite holiday dinners with ease and you’ll love the built-ins for extra storage. Swinging door opens to an inspired kitchen and the flex space which has worn many hats including classroom, office, craft space and a handy transition between cooking area and the huge porch and sun deck. A wealth of cabinets and prep surface invites as many cooks as you can muster and the center island is icing on the cake!

Under a vaulted and beamed ceiling, the en-suite master is a sweet peaceful retreat. Generous in size, there is ample room for everything. En-suite, the bathroom enjoys 2 beautiful sinks, deep tub and shower plus an outfitted walk-in closet. With private access to the sun deck, you can watch the daily sunset and enjoy the golden light over the lake.

Hallway between kitchen and living room opens to a 2nd en-suite bedroom and the 3rd guest room located next to the 3rd bath. Great storage lines this corridor and the last door takes you to the finished attic which will be an instant hit with the younger members of the household (ceiling height tops out at 5’6).

Long driveway on the Cordova St side plus carport will handle your cars and then some. This is a magic place – we’ll be waiting on the porch…
