Secret Neighborhood! | $235,000 | SOLD! | 341 Crystal Lake Drive
Pleasantly hidden away, this home and its big, big lot are located in Prairie Lakes, one of the last truly secret nooks in St. Augustine. While still close enough for you to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the tourist district, its approach is on a route favored by cyclists on their way to the surrounding countryside.
The home? The très chic master bedroom is complimented by a tray ceiling (très tray anyone?), with a master bath that includes two big wash basins and garden tub that just begs you to fill it with hot, soapy water and relax in its depths. After you towel off you can unwind with a fresh grind of dark (or medium) roast, enjoyed from the warmth of your breakfast nook—or breakfast bar—in a home kitchen that’s bathed in sunlight. The family room is open, with red accents. Red can be a too-strong a color in some homes but it works here, elegant in the way a red carpet is elegant. And what does this red carpet home still need? Why it needs you, my dear!
Two guest bedrooms round out this home’s interior. A small but sufficient covered porch opens up to the large yard in the back. This backyard is fenced, and the lot is a shade over a half acre; which brings us to value. A home on a half-acre lot in St. Augustine generally sells for over $300,000. I told you this neighborhood was a secret! Melanie Clay sold this home!
