Calling this a “magical” location doesn’t do it justice. Located just a 5-minute walk to craft brews, farm-to-table restaurants, and St. Augustine’s iconic Bridge of Lions, this home enjoys an amazing, walkable neighborhood. It also happens to be located in the #1 school district in the state (both RB Hunt Elementary AND Cathedral Parish School are within a five minute drive).
Lots of light and lovely wood floors in the big, big living area highlight a fireplace surrounded by built-ins. A pretty galley kitchen with updated counters, back-splash, and stainless appliances includes a breakfast nook with plenty of windows and those gorgeous wood floor. The two bedrooms have relaxed color schemes and peaceful, meditative qualities. The home’s single bath is cute with a pedestal sink, shower, and tub.
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.
As mentioned, The Bridge of Lions is just a five minute walk away (!), R.B. Hunt Elementary, Cathedral Parish School, the St. Augustine Lighthouse, and Anastasia State Park are all within a 5-minute drive (!!). If you ride a bike, that gentle surf and lovely, white-sand beach is just a few more minutes than in a car. And I haven’t even mentioned the coffee shops or Anastasia Boulevard’s burgeoning food scene (which has the locals raving, and is only a 5-minute walk).
This space is ready and waiting for you to reimagine. As with every mid-century home you’ll find some work to do, but the roof is less than 7 years old and the A/C system is nearly new. And here’s some more good news: The home was not damaged in any way by Hurricane Matthew. It sits approximately 2-feet above grade, saw no water inside the living area, was not gutted, made no insurance claims, and it needed no repairs. As an investment property it excels; the most recent tenants were paying $1800 a month.
Simply put, this home isn’t the biggest, or flashiest, or newest, but the location is better than any other home in market for the price; it is truly a one-of-a-kind. 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?
