St. Augustine house description

Our Historic, vacation cottage is just a half block off the Intercostal Waterway and the St. Augustine City Marina by the Historic Bridge of the Lions.
The house is decorated with a current mix of local art, antiques and comfortable contemporary upholstered furniture. The saltbox style house has an open upstairs porch to enjoy an evening breeze, a relaxing drink and catch a glimpse of the intercoastal waterway. The enclosed, downstairs porch is a great place to have your morning coffee or an afternoon cup of tea with a good book. There is also a small private garden in the back of the house.

A short walk from the cottage through the historic district or along the intercostal waterway brings you to Old St. Augustine. Within blocks are the marina, St. George Street, the beautiful historic hotel, Casa Monica, Flagler College, a landmark building and beautiful example of turn of the century architecture, the old Spanish Fort, a National Park, and many other historic sites. Local trollies are an inexpensive and easy way to see the sights and the driver always provides a little local history.

If you want to enjoy fine dining and music there are a number of excellent restaurants in the old town. There is also lively casual dining and entertainment. A romantic carriage ride is a memorable way to end a beautiful day.

If you enjoy art there are many fine galleries in the old town . A little north of the Spanish Fort there is a small Antique district.

Local food , art and music festivals are held throughout the year and add to the fun of your stay in the area. A short 5 – 10 minute ride will bring you to some of the most beautiful beaches anywhere. The state park beach is an undeveloped , unspoiled, beach for sunning, swimming, walking or riding your bicycle. Just minutes from the state beach is St. Augustine Beach with fun restaurants, music and typical beach activities.

If you love to golf there are many world class golf courses in the area. St Augustine has often been our base for exploring the surrounding areas. A two hour drive North brings you to Savannah, Georgia a very different but beautiful historic city. One hour south is Daytona Beach, home of the Daytona 500 Nascar races.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1995

                  About the owner: We love the country life with a little city activity and fun. We enjoy travel, gardening, reading, cooking, wine, family & friends... art, music, good conversation, and meeting new people... the wonderful experiences that make life special. I practice pilates and have studied energetic healing. My husband and I are both retired and looking forward to seeing other parts of the country and the world. If you enjoy a charming quiet neighborhood with a lively little city within walking distance we hope you will enjoy our cottage in St. Augustine.

                  Why the Owner Chose St. Augustine:
                  My husband and I live in Sonoma California. My husband grew up in California and I grew up in Florida. So loving both states we bought a vacation home in St. Augustine Florida to be close to my family part of the year. We chose St. Augustine because of it's historic charm, good food, art,music and scenic beauty.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  St. Augustine feels like our home in Sonoma, California...except with a beach, Florida vibe. It is a small city with lots of activity but it's easy to find quiet natural beauty nearby to enjoy. In Sonoma it's a walk through the vineyards in St. Augustine it's a walk on the unspoiled state beach or a walk through the old town early in the morning. There are wonderful galleries and restaurants in both places and beautiful music in many venues. Both areas have farmer's markets... if you love to cook as we do.. and there's even one winery in St. Augustine. Of course, there are many wineries in Sonoma... but no beaches.
