St. Augustine cottage description

This cottage was built in or about 1942 by the last Light keeper stationed at St Augustine. Our cottage faces east and is attached to the Lighthouse property on the north side of the property. Situated on an ancient coquina dune we occupy the same high ground that the Lighthouse does. Across the street and past the tennis courts is the Salt Run Lagoon where you may fish, canoe, kayak, sail or head out to the open ocean. The state park is a short walk but if you walk in the opposite direction you will find yourself at the Bridge of Lions and downtown St Augustine. Everywhere you look are gardens, flowers, history, and birds birds birds. The cottage has a large front deck for outdoor dining and general enjoyment of nature. Inside are, two bedrooms two baths a gourmet kitchen and wrap-around Florida room. Wood floors throughout and an authentic feel of Florida's rich maritime history. We provide everything you need to be comfortable and to function for a long visit or a brief one. For more information visit our website listed below.

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: Peter and I found this cottage while visiting St Augustine in 2002. We were completely enchanted by the setting beneath the Lighthouse. Our decision was cinched when we learned the home was built by the last Lightkeeper stationed in St Augustine. We began our restoration and finished just in time for Peter to be asked back to California for his work. We are able to spend part of the year at the cottage and really enjoy welcoming our guests the rest of the time. We have welcomed people from all walks of life and from far and near. We hope we will one day welcome you too!

                  Why the Owner Chose St. Augustine:
                  I mentioned briefly that we were excited about the idea of living next to the Lighthouse. As it turns out - the good people there are the best neighbors you can hope for. The Lighthouse sits on about 9 beautifully kept acres. We enjoy walking over and saying hello to the volunteers and staff whenever we are in town. Where else can you go where everyone is smiling and looking skyward. I strongly urge anyone who visits St Augustine to stop in to the Lighthouse and Museum and see what they are doing for the preservation of our maritime history. They have boat building programs and launches, treasure hunts, serious science and festivals. If you want to see the most spectacular views from the sea to The Ancient City this the way to do it only 219 steps. We love it. The Salt Run lagoon is another alluring feature, with a fishing pier, boat let-in, the boat moorings, all very peaceful. The water birds are just astounding.
