Property description

Owner loved and managed...Spectacular, private waterfront home with dock and deep water near St Augustine inlet. Boat, kayaks, bicycles and much more available for your enjoyment. Enjoy old world charm of heart pine floors, antiques, large chef's kitchen, 3 stories of decks overlooking harbor and ocean, heated salt water swimming pool and spa ( no harsh chlorine). We have a floating dock with deep water(7'deep at low tide) for any size boat and you can be the the ocean or intracoastal waterway in minutes. Salt Run is open and peaceful for safe kayaking, paddle boarding, skiing & tubing. It is perfect for entertaining or for your own peaceful retreat. Sunrise and sunsets are breathtaking.! Nights on the dock are magical! The house and it's belongings are very important to me. This is a house to enjoy, but not for loud, or wild parties. (If you are planing an event, please let me know the type so the appropriate fee, if any, can be applied.)
The dock and deck lights come on automatically at night for enjoyable strolls where you see the beam of the St Augustine Lighthouse turning to your north as well as dolphin and varieties of birds and other wildlife coming to feed. There is a fish cleaning station if you choose to keep and eat your catch of the day and a chemnia great for roasting marshmallows or staying cozy with your morning coffee or evening nightcap. Lighting and stereo speakers are located at the dock as well as porches, pool and decks so you can have your choice of music any time of the day or night. The house offers a perfect place for multiple families, giving everyone plenty of space for socializing, and the advantage of a floor plan that also allows everyone ample privacy. I think it is a home and location everyone will love and want to come back to every year.

Car: Recommended

Every water sport you can think of is ready for you in your backyard. Anastasia State Park and all the historical attractions are an easy bike ride or short car ride away. The St Augustine Amphitheater offers excellent entertainment as well as St Augustine Farmer's Market every Saturday at the Amphitheater from 8:30AM-12:30PM. It is tempting to stay at the property with so many activities right your own backyard.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I love having the house all my friends and family can come to for parties and special occasions. After a hard day's work, it is like coming home for vacation...once you are here, the sounds of the surf and sites of nature remind you of the life's simple pleasures. The home is designed in a way that flows well, accommodates groups of all types and sizes while giving everyone plenty of space and privacy. It has very high end furnishings, but not pretentious. I feel proud of call this my home and love sharing it with people who have the same respect. I do want to let you know that the house is for sale, but has been for about 5 years. The price range (about 2 million) of my home has not seen the economic recovery so I feel confident your rental is secure but if you are looking at something more than 6 months away, you might want to have a back up. I will keep you posted if there is any sign of a contract.

Why the Owner Chose Other St. Augustine Beach Properties:
I first saw the home when I was boating and had to find this hidden paradise. It is uniquely private & peaceful with beautiful wildlife, yet close to all the St Augustine parks, beaches and attractions. I love the fact that it is not a gated community, but a wonderful, eclectic mixture of wonderful neighbors. Once you drive through the gates, however, you are in your own wonderful world.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Drive through the gates into paradise for friends and family to enjoy. Wonderful entertaining! Dolphin feeding in Salt Run, birds of all varieties (I love the pink spoonbills and diving pelicans) coming over from the Alligator Farm for fresh fish. Anastasia State Park, the lighthouse, beach, and almost anything you can imagine is just a short bike ride away. I have enjoyed the music of James Taylor and The Beach Boys from the 3rd floor deck as they played at the amphitheater in the park near my home. Year round, you can enjoy the fireplace, chimineas, the Jacuzzi and heated pool.
