Overview

About the property

This 1885 two story carriage house has 3 bedrooms & 2 baths. Sleep in history.

This 1885 carriage house in the historic Lincolnville neighborhood is just minutes from the historic town square and dozens of excellent restaurants (many of which allow pets), museums and original plus re-constructed historic buildings. Flagler College is 2 blocks away. St George Street, the heart of the historic district, is just 3 blocks away and runs down to our most famous landmark, the Castillo de San Marcos Spanish fort. From the quiet and peaceful balcony you’ll enjoy church bells and the sound of horse drawn carriages passing by, all under the canopy of our 250+ year old Live Oak tree.

Two houses down an excellent new restaurant opened 5/16 in the house built for Thomas Jeffersons grand daughter. The Carriage House is non-smoking and pet friendly.

About Barry Fouts

Florida natives; me from Lakeland and Pat from Jacksonville. St Augustine has always been our favorite city. Nearly everything in St Augustine's historic district is authentic, and you can feel the citys history as you walk the cobblestone streets. Almost 5 years ago we purchased two beachfront town house units and discovered the fun of vacation rentals. Parking in downtown St Augustine is no fun. We knew any property we chose had to be within easy walking distance, and this carriage house is perfect: close in and historic on its' own. When we can get away from our parrots, Guineas, peacocks, dogs, cats, horses, one rescue pony, one resident wild deer we head to The Olde City. Coming from a 55 acre farm 15 miles from anywhere to St Augustine is a treat we thoroughly enjoy.

Barry Fouts purchased this house in 2015

Why Barry Fouts chose St. Augustine

Location is everything, and this property proves that theorem. Clean, modern appliances, yet historic under a 250+ yr old Live Oak tree and walk everywhere with our dogs. Sitting on the balcony after a day of sight seeing is wonderfully relaxing.

What makes this house unique

In 1930 this carriage house was deeded away from the main house. It has no backyard, but a deep front yard able to park 4 cars, even a 30' motorhome. Most houses in this area were built on the edge of the street, and have only on-street parking. Being two story allows a restful view of the occasional passing horse drawn carriages while relaxing on the shaded balcony. In April we enjoyed watching hawks nesting in the oak trees, and squirrels sounding their alarms. We enjoy calling for a pedicab to ride us and our dogs to our favorite dog-friendly restaurants. For tips only (usually $10 per ride) the young men drivers give a guided tour on the way and tips on best places to eat, etc.

Cottage was exactly as described.

  • 4 of 5

Our first visit to St. Augustine. The cottage was a perfect location to do everything the town offers or to simply sit on the porch. We did both.

A wonderful home-away-from-home

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us! We stayed for the month of March. It's located near town so we walked to places easily. Each morning was spent out on the balcony with a cup of coffee. Watching the live oak that grows in the yard was so interesting! Being from New York, we don't see those here. The balcony offers a place to sit & relax, watching the air fern & like oak branches sway in the breeze. The kitchen was well equipped- the owners provide everything you need! They're easily reached if there's a question. The house was very clean & offered so much space! It truly was a wonderful vacation! When we plan our next trip to St. Augustine, we're definitely staying here!

Owner's Response: Relaxing on the balcony is like being transported back in time to old Florida. Enjoy an iced tea, or maybe a gin & tonic and let the world pass by.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property was better than described. The check in was effortless, as was check out.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was very clean and comfortable. It was an easy walk to downtown and the surrounding areas. The upstairs porch is fantastic for coffee in the morning! Thank you for a great weekend!

Owner's Response: You can totally relax on the upstairs porch under the old oak tree. It's a bit of old Florida that makes this carriage house special.

The Carriage House, ST Augustine Florida

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the carriage house was Dec2-Dec8 2016. We found the property to be perfect in location and content. From the moment we walked in it felt like home. The home was very clean , well maintained ,and in a very safe area. The kitchen was well stocked. The beds extremely comfortable. The upstairs and downstairs porches were wonderful to sit on and relax while having am coffee or an afternoon drink.

We loved the fact that the property is pet friendly so we could bring our 7 yr old chocolate lab with us. The home was located very close to many major attractions such as Flagler College,The Lightner Museum, Zadora Museum ,St. Augustine Distillery, and San Sebastian winery and a walkable distance from downtown if desired. There is a trolley stop about 3 blocks from the property. We enjoyed the Christmas light tour, but would definitely return anytime of year. The owner Barry was wonderful answering any questions we had as well as providing alot of material in the house about ST. Augustine.

We would recommend this property to anybody and will make it our destination when we visit ST. Augustine.

Thank you,Barry for sharing your jewel with us. A big 5 stars.

Owner's Response: We love hearing how our guests enjoyed so much of St Augustines attractions in a short visit. Being within walking distance of the entire historical district makes this possible. But, it still takes many visits to see it all, there's just so much to see & experience.

St Augustine

This 1885 carriage house in the historic Lincolnville neighborhood is just a few minutes walk from the town square and dozens of excellent restaurants, museums and original plus re-constructed historic buildings. Flagler College is 2 ½ blocks away. St George Street, the heart of the historic/tourist district, is just 3 blocks away and runs down to our most famous landmark, the Castillo de San Marcos Spanish fort. From the quiet and peaceful second floor veranda you’ll enjoy church bells and horse drawn carriages passing by, all under the canopy of our 250+ year old Live Oak tree. Last year hawks raised their babies less than 20' from the balcony.

Two doors away an excellent restaurant named Preserved just opened 5/16, in the house built for Thomas Jefferson’s great granddaughter. We’re loving walking two doors down for lunch.
