Behind a traditional façade with classic architectural elements dressed in shades of periwinkle beats the heart of a modern home circa 2017. The owners loved the location, saw the potential and embraced a complete renovation from bottom to top to create this welcoming place. Set back from the street with an antique wall at the sidewalk’s edge, please note the abundance of tandem parking and realize that all your friends will be vying for a spot as you are a block from the center of downtown!

Inside, the kitchen, living and dining room are one large open space that you can arrange to suit your lifestyle. Natural light streams in through an abundance of windows softly illuminating the heart of the house – always cheerful, even on a rainy day. Dark wood floors complement the pale walls while the crisp white kitchen looks sharp against the deeply hued stone. Daily life and entertaining are equally easy with so much room for everyone to participate and an easy flow in all directions. An immense island anchors the kitchen while offering seating to your culinary consultants who are keen to offer their opinion. Designed for 2 or more to work comfortably together, if you like to cook, you have come to the right place.

Half bath is tucked in the corner adjacent to a welcome under-the-stair closet. Large laundry room is tucked between kitchen and en-suite owners’ quarters. Sink, cabinets galore and a side door to take you to the private courtyard and deck out back.

Main bedroom is a sweet retreat under a lofty ceiling. Barn door reveals a spacious bathroom with generous walk-in shower, expansive double vanity atop a multitude of storage space and a separate linen closet. French doors open to a covered deck so morning coffee with the birds and evening cocktails as the moon rises will be a regular event. The bedroom easily accommodates the largest bed and all your favorite furniture with room left over for a sitting area or micro desk.

Upstairs, three bedrooms wait patiently for the long line of visitors keen to help you explore your new hometown. Custom built-in on the landing stores all manner of things and keeps books and art in reach and view. Bedrooms 2 and 3 have views of Flagler College and a nearby steeple. Both large rooms with flex and multipurpose uses. Front bedroom overlooks Bridge St and enjoys sunshine all day long. Hall bathroom serves the second floor.

Owners decided mowing grass was not on their menu so front yard is graveled and the driveway and courtyard are pavered. Gardens line the privacy on 3 sides, providing colorful flowers and an invitation to bees and butterflies. Covered deck is the spot for al fresco dining after the grill has done its thing. Let the rains come – you will stay nicely dry no matter the weather. Raised bed garden has delivered many a tomato and a variety of cooking herbs. Generator is hidden back here too. If your family includes 4-legged members, all you need is to add a bit more fence and gate, and they can enjoy the backyard with their humans.

From the front door, it’s a leisurely 3-block stroll to the corner of King and Cordova where a myriad of culinary and cultural delights are waiting to be discovered. Along the way, architectural jewels dating back as far as the late 1700s and forward are still proudly representing different eras in St Augustine’s long history. Welcome – we think you’re going to like it here.
