Get your Zen on in this partially updated, 2-bedroom home in diverse Davis Shores. This mid-century classic is located in a sigh-inducing location, 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 a walkable neighborhood, it’s located in the #1 school district in the state (just so you know).

Like the neighborhood itself, the home is charming and beachy, elegant yet casual. 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.

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.

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 neighborhood of Davis Shores is cradled between the Bridge of Lions (just a five minute walk away) and the ocean. Anastasia State Park’s gentle surf and lovely, white-sand beach—consistently voted one of Florida’s finest—is within an easy bike ride. 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, just across the Bridge. And here’s a bonus: You don’t even have to cross the Bridge anymore. Anastasia Boulevard’s burgeoning food scene has the locals raving.

The current owner drew up detailed plans to grow the home larger, but moved just across the Bridge to accommodate his growing family. This space has now been left 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 newer.

Other people are discovering that this is the neighborhood to be in: the home at 104 Arpieka, just two doors away is being sold as a tear-down (land value only) for $218K, and the 2-bedroom home at 14 Arpeika is pending at $309K, so the value of this home and this location is clearly there. Chances to snap up a place like this don’t come along that often. How will you define this space? What story will you write here?

High & Dry Location

This home survives and thrives, despite the coastal storms that have come and gone in the sixty nine years since it was built. This home and its living areas suffered no damage and did not flood in the October 2016 hurricane. The single-car garage, which is two feet lower, did experience some flooding (the water ruined a washer and dryer) but otherwise had no damage. The builders in 1947 knew that if they built the home proper a little higher, those few extra feet would keep it snug and dry, giving each succeeding generation of owners peace of mind.
