Meet Sean Hess

You’ll tell your friends you moved here so that you could walk to the Bridge of Lions, to the St. Augustine Lighthouse, and even to Anastasia State Park and the amphitheater. You’ll tell them that but the reality is you’ll never walk anywhere because you’ll always be lounging in your wonderfully large pool. Private, relaxed, this classic Davis Shores home has a pretty kitchen, a big, big living area, and warm saltillo tile throughout. A large master bedroom with a tidy, pretty bath, two guest bedrooms (all bedrooms have wood laminate flooring) and a guest bath round out the home. There’s a one car garage that includes an indoor laundry. The range and refrigerator are new (and stainless). There are built-in bookcases and crown molding for that classic touch. The backyard has banana trees (how’s that for a conversation starter?), the wonderfully expansive pool, and is fully fenced. You’ll tell them you moved here so you could walk to the sights, but we know the truth!  Price: $266,500

Saltillo tile

What is saltillo tile? I’m glad you asked!

According to wikipedia (which we know is truthful about all things), saltillo tile is a type of terra-cotta tile that originates in Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico. Saltillo-type tiles are now manufactured at many places in Mexico, and high-fire “Saltillo look” tiles, many from Italy, compete with the terra-cotta originals.

Saltillo tile vary in colour and shape, but the majority range from in varying hues of reds, oranges and yellows. Tiles are shaped either by pressing quarried clay with a wooden frame (super), or carving out the desired shape (regular). Depending on the raw tile’s placement among other tiles at the time of firing, its colour ranges from yellow to a rich orange.

You will find we locals here in St. Augustine pronounce “Saltillo” as SAR-tillo. Correctly it is pronounced sah-TEE-Yo.
