205 Roaring Brook Drive: Hidden away in St. Augustine, this custom 4-bedroom home boasts its own pool, and dockage on a private, artesian spring-fed pond. This very private home sits nestled in the small community of Olde Florida, a hidden paradise close to everything but miles from the crowds. Discerning buyers with school-aged children will note this home is served by St. Johns County schools, the #1 schools in the state.
Items of note:
This home has 4 bedrooms (3 downstairs, 1 upstairs). The master bedroom has its own gas fireplace, pool access, and measures an astonishing 28 x 14. The downstairs guest bedrooms are each 13 x 11 space, and the upstairs bonus bedroom is a gigantic 35 x 16, truly its own en suite.
The elegant kitchen, a huge space, is 19 x 15, with stainless appliances and a gas stove (all new in 2017), rich wood cabinets, and gorgeous counters with a tin backsplash, breakfast bar, and big breakfast nook. The living area is a 18 x 15 space adjacent to the kitchen and includes a decorative fireplace. Both rooms have lovely wood laminate floors, which are easy to keep clean when guests come in from the pool.
The custom pool has its own waterfall, is private, and is screened. The pool patio is covered and is a great space for relaxing.
Walking down from the English garden you’ll find an elegant stairway leading to your own private dock. The artesian spring-fed pond is surrounded by mature trees, and purchase of the home includes your very own paddle boat. You’ll see bass and other Florida wildlife from your landing; the pond empties into Red House Branch Creek nearby.
The home includes a large, 30 x 9 sunroom with a wall of windows overlooking a jasmine-covered border. The covered pool patio is a gigantic 40 x 18, with lots privacy and lots of room for alfresco dining.
