St. Augustine house description

Within easy walking distance to the center of town, restaurants, parks, the museums, historic sites, commercial center and night life including period bars and ghost tours. This home is set back off the street as it has been for almost 150 years. This offers a private perch allowing you to watch the world go by from the 2nd floor balcony. Located in the quite side of town, with a beautifully planted garden and covered by a 250+ year old Live Oak tree, you can hear the birds, carriages and the bells from the many churches near by.

Located 1 house away from the house built for Thomas Jefferson's great-granddaughter Maria Jefferson Epes Shine who quite possibly rode carriages that set out from the Carriage House. Just 5 minutes walk from beautiful Flagler College (formerly the Henry Flagler Ponce de Leon Hotel) and built in the in the Spanish Renaissance Revival style it has been described by US News and World Report as one of the Southeast regions best comprehensive liberal arts colleges.

Many a horse and buggy backed up to the old carriage house and still do, as in recent years the house has hosted its share of weddings with carriage taking recently married brides and grooms on tours of the city, on to the reception or off for the honeymoon. Constructed in the latter half of the 1800's, the house was converted into a full residence and private quarters in the 1920's with removal of stable and double doors. The downstairs rooms originally held carriages and tack (now bedrooms and foyer), while the upstairs was built to house the groomsman.
