                  Old Florida at it's finest. Majestic oaks along the banks of the St Johns River. Located 5 miles south west of the World Golf Village in a quiet residential rural setting. All the amenities and needs are 10 minutes away with downtown St. Augustine only 16 miles due east.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: As 3rd generation Floridian, my family has own property in Colee Cove since 1946. We have lived next door for 15 years and as the family grew so did our need for a larger home. In 2008 I obtained a Captains license and have preformed guided fishing trips on the St Johns river. Our family respects, loves and uses the river at every possible opportunity.

                  Why the Owner Chose St. Augustine:
                  Quiet, unique, beautiful, and rare experience in a part of Florida that some never knew existed.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Sunsets to the west are unbelievable. If you love to fish, then this is it! It is not every day that you can sit under 300 year old oak trees and be so close to the oldest city in America.
