Executive Home with European Flair, with Half Acre Lot in Florida’s #1 School District! | 545 Willow Walk Place | $330,000 | SOLD

Note: Sean Hess sold this home in 41 days (two companies had three chances prior to me taking over, and both other companies failed to sell this gorgeous home in a combined 662 days on the market). I sold it for 97% of list price, and I kept the seller informed every step of the way. Why could I sell it when others couldn’t? Click here to look at the marketing; I pride myself on telling the story of home. Once you tell a home’s story, the rest is easy. And the seller said was impressed: Click here to read what she wrote!

Tucked away on a quiet, leafy road in the #1 school district in the state, this executive home with European flair will be your antidote for today’s cookie cutter designs.

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. And here’s the best part: at $340,000 you won’t have to sacrifice financially.

If you entertain frequently you will adore the outdoor pergola, extended decks, and walled courtyard that will allow guests to spread out and chat. If you entertain infrequently you’ll love these same spaces; they will be your oasis, a whole half acre—personal and private—overlooking the forest preserve that embraces the home.

$143,000 | SOLD! | Affordable Townhome with SJC Schools! | 411 Cabernet Place

We’re not going to go on and on about this lovely townhouse. Instead we’ll simply tell you it features beautiful laminate flooring and tile downstairs (which makes it so much easier to clean when you’re tracking all that beach sand in) with berber carpet upstairs (comfy for feet both little and big) in the two bedrooms. There’s a back patio that overlooks the water and is large enough for a nice patio set, to sit and enjoy sunrises and sunsets. The owner has made the under- the- stairs closet into a nice office (!) with built-in shelving. The townhome sits near the end of the street thus there is little traffic. And since it is a townhome, you actually own the land it sits on (but you don’t have to mow the lawn), which is pretty fantastic!

You too can make St. Augustine your home. What are you waiting for?

SOLD! | $222,490 | 98 Ashby Landing Way

I know, St. Augustine seems perilously out of reach to the average home buyer these days. What with the increased coverage of our gorgeous town in the national media, we are literally an overnight sensation 450 years in the making. But this lovely 3 bedroom home is … affordable! For you! Yes you! And it’s brand new, too (so no maintenance issues for years). And you found it, you lucky dog. Just minutes from schools, shopping, and our fabled Historic District … well, we real estate agents would stay in touch, but we know you’re never, ever going to sell. Enjoy! Melanie Clay sold this home.

Pool Home! | SOLD! | $291,000 | 5016 Shore Drive

This is a cheerful, wonderfully appointed custom home with a lovely fireplace, living areas, and gorgeous master bathroom. Here are two unique things you should know about it:
First, this is a 4 bedroom home. The fourth bedroom is actually its own attached apartment, with its own kitchen, and its own living room, and (!!!) its own separate entrance! I know, wow! It’s the perfect place to have an office, or to house guests, or for an elderly parent to live independently.
Second, this home is privacy hidden in plain sight. It’s a pretty house, made of brick, but an unassuming one. If you were to drive by you’d have no idea that beyond that big circular drive it hid a pool, a separate apartment, 2 large exterior storage areas and a separate workshop. A bit like a super hero’s secret base, except in St. Augustine South. Click here to see video of it.
My favorite part of the home is the covered patio off of the pool. It is screened, along with the pool, to encourage all-seasons use. It’s an ideal place to lounge while the kids are swimming in the day, or an intimate place for al fresco dining late or chilly-evening conversation. The pool area is fully fenced to make it even more private.
Should you purchase this home you’ll also be admired for the home’s proximity to Intracoastal Park (which is a short walk around the corner). Click here to find out more! Melanie Clay sold this home.

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!

Originally the city’s one-story jail, this structure has been added to over the years, and a second story was created then expanded. And lucky you! Hang out on your 2nd story terrace and watch the comings and goings of tourists and locals alike as they stroll brick-lined Aviles Street. Or make a quick escape to your two rear patios (one screened, one open, both nearly 30-feet wide). You can live and work here, too. Your car won’t be a burden, with 2-big garages, extra parking, and an easy exit to lightly traveled Charlotte Street. Currently a business on the 1st floor and a residence on the 2nd, zoning allows for a residence, multifamily, and commercial uses. Live upstairs and work below? Start a B&B?
