Description:

In a city known for its rich architectural diversity and range of residential styles, there is no substitute for this exceptional downtown estate. The history of its occupants is as fascinating as the house itself and you immediately see how so many happy memories have been made over the decades by the families who called it home.

With over 6,300 square feet of living space, the exterior has retained its original Mediterranean Revival with an influence of Colonial style and is as stunning today as when it was built. The details are unique, the rooms generous in size and number, and with seven bedrooms and five and a half baths, there is always room for the people you love and for the activities that inspire you to action.

The living room, dining room, gathering room and kitchen flow together and everywhere you look you see blue skies and the water stretching out into the inlet and the ocean beyond. Abundant outdoor living areas surround the house and there’s a waterfront spa nicely screened by a magnolia canopy. Sleeping quarters are on all three floors with a small en-suite downstairs, a full master’s suite opening to a sun deck on the second with another suite and guest room as well and three bedrooms with a sitting room and full bath on the third.

Remarkably private for being a mere two blocks from the Castillo de San Marcos Fort, the backyard faces east and the morning sunrise bathes the house in shades of pink and gold every day. In the heart of a most treasured historic neighborhood, this is the stuff of which dreams are made. Words and photos are inadequate to do justice to this extraordinary property or to recount its history.

St Augustine, the nation’s oldest city, also holds the distinction of being one of the nation’s most charming.  Known as the “AncientCity,” Saint Augustine is a quaint coastal town located in northeast Florida. The area boasts a year-round mild climate perfect for enjoying the pristine beaches or strolling in St Augustine’s delightful historic district, with its cobblestone streets, cafes, unique shops and bed-and-breakfast inns.

In 2013, St Johns County was named fifth on CNN Money’s list of “2013 Best Places to Live:  Where the Jobs Are.”  Saint Augustine has been named as one of the Top 10 Places for History Buffs to Retire by U.S. News and World Report 2010, and is also listed as one of the Top 100 Places to Live in 2010 by RelocateAmerica.
