Property description

Our bright and airy 2 bedroom, 1.5 baths home is situated in a cozy, quiet and safe neighborhood in the historic downtown district of St. Augustine. This classic, turn of the century, Florida house has been recently renovated and features 12 foot ceilings, new kitchen, updated bathrooms, and fresh paint. The backyard is fenced, perfect for pets and includes a charcoal grill.

Located just two blocks from the Matanzas River, the Intracoastal Waterway, our Blue Bell cottage offers guest ample room for relaxing, visiting with friends and family, and entertaining. There’s a private covered deck and patio in the back and a cute front porch offer additional space for guest to entertain and relax.
Nearby, guests will find abundant choices for dining, shopping, and site-seeing. Just a short walk away is the Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum and the Castillo de San Marco fort.

Nestled in a charming community with picturesque views and abundant activities, our Blue Bell Cottage is sure to be your home away from home.

The city of St. Augustine is rich with history and full of moments that will forever mark its place as the oldest city in Florida and the oldest continuously occupied colony in North America. Founded in 1565, before the colonization of Jamestown by the English and long before the pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock, the Spanish settled this area and established the now existing city of St. Augustine.

As you walk down the streets of St .Augustine in its modern stage, Spanish influence on architecture and infrastructure is still evident. Despite the many setbacks throughout history including a yellow fever epidemic, pirate invasion, and battlefield of many wars, this quaint historic city continues to offer its guest and community a multitude of stories, folklore, and beauty. All of the many facets of this historic town, its tranquil environment, family friendly attractions, excellent dining, relaxing atmosphere, and the view of the beautiful ocean are the many splendors that attract guest here regularly.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: My wife, 2 mutts and I have been traveling from Michigan to St. Augustine the last couple winters to renovate this turn of the century home. We love the history, great beaches, antiques and art.

Why Saint Augustine, FL, USA:
We have traveled around Florida for years. We kept returning to this area because it seemed a little less hectic than busier southern locations. St. Augustine is nicely laidback.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the 4 block neighborhood called the Abbott Tract our house is located in. It's a mix of large plantation houses and smaller Florida houses. It's very quiet; no through traffic feels very safe. It's 2 blocks to the old fort, intercoastal, Ripley's, and A1A antiques shops.
