Calling this a “magical” location doesn’t do it justice. This mid-century classic is located just a 5-minute walk to craft brews, farm-to-table restaurants, and St. Augustine’s iconic Bridge of Lions. Oh, and besides being located in an amazing, walkable neighborhood, it’s located in the #1 school district in the state.
Just so you know: This 2-bedroom, 1-bath home is perfect for a single adult, a couple, or a couple with one child. Once your family starts to grow, you may need to grow the home with it—the owner nearly did 🙂 because of its one-of-a-kind location; There are simply so few places in St. Augustine that don’t require a car, and this is one of them.
Like the neighborhood of Davis Shores (where it’s located), the home is charming and beachy, and elegant yet comfortable in the same way a Georgia O’Keeffe painting is. Sitting on an oversized lot, with just 4 small steps to the front door, the home is laid out on a single level and is easily accessible (a bonus: Those 4 small steps kept the home high-and-dry in last October’s storm).
Lots of light and lovely wood floors in the big, big living area highlight a fireplace surrounded by built-ins. A cozy, upgraded kitchen with beautiful granite counters and stainless appliances includes a breakfast nook with plenty of windows. The two bedrooms have relaxed color schemes and peaceful, meditative qualities. The home’s single bath is cute and tidy.
This space is ready and waiting for you to reimagine. There is some work to do; the refinished wood floors were scratched by a well-intentioned pooch, and the glass screw-in style fuse panel could stand an update. But the roof is less than 7 years old and the A/C system is nearly new.
Outside you’ll find big trees with plenty of shade, the trunks strong and substantial enough to string a hammock between—where you’ll likely fall asleep with a book propped on your nose. Your drive is welcoming, and done in pavers. On chilly days, of which there are precious few in Florida, you can retreat inside to your cozy sunroom and its enclosed glass porch.
The Bridge of Lions is just a five minute walk away, and Anastasia State Park’s gentle surf and lovely, white-sand beach—consistently voted one of Florida’s finest—is within an easy bike ride. If you do own a car, RB Hunt Elementary is just a 4-minute drive away (easy for picking up and dropping off the kiddos).
Still need convincing? Paddleboards abound; launching on the Salt Run’s calm waters from the nearby Lighthouse is a favorite St. Augustine pastime. After a day of surf and sun, unwind at one of St. Augustine’s many renowned restaurants in the Historic District. Truthfully, you don’t even have to cross the Bridge anymore; Anastasia Boulevard’s burgeoning food scene has the locals raving.
Chances to snap up a home like this don’t come along that often: Not in this location, and certainly not for this price. Will you make this your space? What story will you write here?
