Size, Price, and Location

Roomy, comfortable, and effortlessly elegant, this well-loved home is nestled in the beach community of Ocean Palms. Enjoy a lake and preserve view, the security of a gated neighborhood, a beach you can walk or bike to, a pier on the Intracoastal, nature trails, sidewalks, and of course, the #1 schools in the state.

This 3-bedroom, 2-bath home is move-in ready with new flooring and new stainless appliances. 320 San Nicolas Way in St. Augustine, Florida (32080) is listed by the property appraisers office at nearly 2,000 square feet (1,986 square feet heated-and-cooled), has no stairs (except for the extra attic storage) and is offered for $379,900.

Bedrooms and Baths

The residence includes 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths in a split arrangement.

The master bedroom (16 x 11.5) has a pretty tray ceiling and brand new carpet.

The master bath is exceptional: A long double vanity with seating area for makeup creates a hotel-like feel, the spacious garden tub is framed by an arched glass-block window, and the newly retiled shower is big enough for two.

The larger of the two walk-in closets (8.5′ x 5.5′) could be transformed into a fabulous study room or library (or a nursery, office, craft room, etc.!); it has a glamorous oval window, power outlet, and it’s even wired so that you could add internet!

There are also two linen closets in the master bedroom, and a coat closet just outside its entry.

Two more bedrooms (each 11 x 10), each with lovely new, “no slip” porcelain ceramic flooring, are on the opposite side of the home, with a pocket door that, when closed, adds an extra layer of privacy and quiet for these two sleeping spaces.

A guest bath has tub-shower combo with a ledge that could be used as a seat.

Kitchen and Living Area

A contiguous kitchen (with all new stainless appliances) and living room space creates an area flexible enough to make big gatherings feel intimate. This is truly the center of the home; the family and dining area, spare bedrooms, laundry, and loggia can all be accessed from this space (pocket doors can be closed in three directions to add more privacy). The kitchen is 18 x 16, and includes a breakfast bar and breakfast nook (and even a tidy closet pantry). The living area adds another 12 x 13, creating a combined space 30 feet in length!

Family and Dining Spaces

One cannot converse well unless well unless one is also well fed. In that spirit, the dining and family area meet just beyond the entryway (where the lovely tile flooring is graced with a mosaic inlay). Overlooking the loggia, and with double pocket doors leading to the kitchen and living area, this room will be one of your favorites. Broadly speaking the dining section of this space is 14 x 10, and the family area is 19 x 11 for a combined area that is 23 x 21. The entrance hall to the master bedroom is also here.

Non-slip Tile Flooring

Non-slip wood plank style porcelain tile in guest rooms & dining/living area. Owners left carpet in master bedroom so elderly buyer (or family with kids) would have at least one bedroom area carpeted. Carpet color in master doesn’t necessarily match with the rest of the home’s flooring, so this is a great opportunity for you to re-imagine the space.

Covered Patio: The Loggia

Creating comfortable, soothing spaces bathed in light, several nearly floor-to-ceiling windows wrap the rear of the home, and sliding doors lead to an covered patio that reminds one of a loggia. With big, open views of the lake and the wildlife preserve beyond, it will become one of your family’s favorite spaces, a place where you can listen to the ocean after the daily hubbub dies down, or where you nurse a cup of coffee watching the sunrise, before the rest of the world wakes up.

The patio loggia is 25.5 x 10.5 on the master bedroom side, and 16.5 x 8 on the living room side.

Lot

320 San Nicolas Way sits on a pie-shaped lot; 45 in front, 115 each side, 124 back (curving). The lot backs to a lovely lake, and the lake backs to wildlife preserve (the same one that you pass through as you enter the community). The preserve provides a buffer between the community and A1A.

Parking and Extra Storage

This home has a big 3-car garage (20 x 26). Above the garage is a floored attic with pull-down stairs for extra storage (!)

The A/C air handler is in the garage and is five years old.

Within the community there is parking near the front gate for those who wish to park their car or bike and walk to the beach. There is parking at the Pool Park, and there is parking at the Riverfront Park (River Parke) for the nature trails and Intracoastal Pier.

Laundry

The home’s laundry is an 8 x 4 space (tiled) separated by a pocket door from the kitchen. The washer and dryer are included with the sale.

Ocean Palms Neighborhood

Ocean Palms boasts two parks (one with a pool, one with a pier on the Intracoastal), picnic areas, playground, nature trails, wildlife reserves, a gated school bus stop, and a place to park your car or bike if you want to walk to the beach without it. You’ll feel like you’re on vacation every day of the year!

Walking and pedal power are definitely welcome here. The engaging community pool is close to everyone, and an easy stroll on the neighborhood nature trail (with an entrance on San Nicolas) will take you to the pier, where you can watch dolphins, manatees, and sailboats cruise by. Or take that stroll or bike ride to the beach; the sandy shore near Ocean Palms is a local’s beach, separate from the condos and high activity at the pier, with a laid-back, residential vibe.

Schools

This home is currently zoned for W.D. Hartley Elementary, Gamble Rogers Middle, and Pedro Menendez High School.

W.D. Hartley is one of the county’s most coveted elementaries, Gamble Rogers offers programs for students to earn high-school credit early, and Pedro Menendez offers the coveted International Baccalaureate (IB) program for early college credit. In addition Pedro Menendez’s magnet programs include Academies for Medical & Health Careers, Architecture & Building Sciences, the Vystar Academy of Business & Finance, and Digital Design.

For a home buyer looking for a great academic experience, St Johns County schools are the top performer in the state and draw rave reviews from parents. St. Johns County Schools have been rated the best public schools in the state for much of the last decade. High school and middle school students zoned for the district above can also apply to the magnet programs and academies at the district’s other schools.

One of the nicest touches in this community is the neighborhood school bus stop just inside the gates. Children can even ride their bikes to the stop in the morning, and ride the bike back home after they are dropped off at the end of the day.

Buyers to verify all school zoning.

Beach Access

To access the beach walk to the front pedestrian gate (or park your bike or car in the lot provided there), and either cross A1A right there and walk south to Magnolia Avenue (or walk south and cross at Magnolia). Beach access is at the end of Magnolia. We took a walk to the beach and livecast it, see it here at https://youtu.be/-2gjuYXbmAA Quick note, after the intro it took 5 minutes (and 5 seconds) to walk from the pedestrian gate to the start of the beach walkover. The rest of the video is the beach 🙂

Location

This home survives and thrives, despite the coastal storm that visited our community in the fall of 2016; this home suffered no damage from Hurricane Matthew. However, for a mortgage this home requires flood insurance (zone AE).
