Circa 1905, this 2-story building was originally constructed as the US Navy Wireless Station in St Augustine and was part of a larger compound along the waterfront. After World War II the property was declared surplus by the government and was acquired by Thomas Keegan who had previously operated the Radio Inn at Lighthouse Park. It’s been a private residence ever since, retaining some period detail inside as well as an interesting outbuilding in the back, formerly the powerhouse, now storage.

Oriented to the northeast, the property boasts 170ft on the water and unbroken views of the State Park and Salt Run from virtually every room. The house has a distinct New England flavor featuring large public rooms lined with big windows. A brick hearth in the kitchen held a coal heater long ago and now makes for an architectural focal point to the room. During the transition from military use to residential, rooms were repurposed and there is now a bedroom adjacent to the hall bath downstairs. A small addition off the living room is now used as an office with a view to distract you from your task. Ceilings are 10+ feet and the floors are mostly heart pine. The master and a guest room on the second floor cry out for a wraparound porch but for now the abundance of windows let you enjoy the vistas including ocean views where the dunes have a break in them. A full bath is shared by the sleeping quarters on the second floor.

With just over a half acre, there is room for many improvements and additions without compromising the enviable privacy afforded by cedar trees dotting the perimeter. If you’re looking for contemporary digs with up-to-date amenities, this is not the place. But if the traditional feel and historic provenance appeal to your sensibilities and stir your imagination, that’s another story. Within an easy bike ride or healthy walk to a number of eateries, the Amphitheatre and our beautiful State Park, your car may get lonely. A slice of bliss in Lighthouse Park…
