Come enjoy our modern rustic farmhouse on a very quiet 10 acres with a pond and creek that runs through the back acreage. It nestled at the end of a semi-hidden dirt road just 27 minutes (14 miles) from downtown St Augustine. While it has two neighbors you can see on either side of the property, it is also surrounded by hundreds of acres of natural forest in the front and rear.
This is our custom built home we escape to on weekends. We built it with painstaking detail with the intention of living here full time. It turned out to be a little too far for our daily lives around Jacksonville. Now we want to share it with you!
There are 5 bedrooms:
Master with king bed, working gas fireplace and own full bath (shower only)
Office/Bedroom off master with crib (this room can only be accessed via the Master)
Bedroom with full bed and private full bath with shower & tub
Bedroom with two twins that shares main full bath with shower & tub
Bedroom with 4 twins (bunk bed) that shares main full bath with shower & tub
Fully equipped kitchen with gas burners and double oven
High end fridge, dishwasher and microwave
K Cup Coffee Maker
Washer and dryer
Alexa for music, news and weather
Large LED TV with Direct TV and DVD Player
Wi-Fi - Because our property is in a semi-rural area the wi-fi is a cellular hotspot. It works well for email, internet surfing, etc. It usually works well for streaming, but I cannot promise it will always stream well.
Working gas fireplace
Back Porch (Fully Screened):
Ping Pong Table
Pool (with locked baby gate) Note: Don't choose our place for the pool. It's not that great and it needs to be refinished. It's fine to cool off in during the hot months and we do use it with our own kids.
Property: -As of this description (12/30/17) the grounds are not well manicured (but being worked on) and are very wooded
10 relaxing acres - the property is very long but not as wide (you will not see neighbors out the front or back but you can somewhat see them on either side)
The pond is at the half way point of the property and is about a quarter acre large.
Six Mile Creek runs through the back of the property and sometimes it is accessible if it hasn't rained a lot. It is usually a very small and somewhat flowing creek surrounded by swamp. **The creek is not navigable here by boat, kayak, etc.
The front few acres are fairly cleared for walking around, hanging out, etc.
I have a road cut that loops around the back of the property. There are some side trails as well for exploring.
There is a fully enclosed trampoline behind the house - that is locked. PLEASE DO NOT USE.
The house is located at the end of a dirt road off the end of a dead end paved road - it is usually very quiet
**IMPORTANT NOTE: because it is still a semi-rural area you will sometimes hear gunfire from hunters or neighbors in the daytime
Because this property is surrounded by lots of forest there are deer on the property every night. You may or may not see them. We also have turkeys moving through the property regularly as well as the occasional wild hog. There is an abundance of birds and it's fairly common to see and/or hear large red-tailed and red-shouldered hawks as well as some large owls. ***Because it is Florida and a semi-rural area always watch for snakes!!***
Guests can access the entire house and property, except the garage.
We live about 30 to 40 minutes from the property. You will not see us unless an emergency or special request occurs.
33 minutes (18 miles) to St Augustine Beach
