In 2005 this historic cottage was beautifully renovated by John Valdes. Heart pine floors & period details were lovingly preserved during the updating. The soaring foyer brings welcome light to the interior rooms. Living & dining rooms are at the heart; at the rear of the house are the fully equipped kitchen & a third, private bedroom next to the hall bath. High ceilings, deep crown moldings & plantation shutters make this home cozy & comfortable! High elevation protects against flooding!, Second bedroom is off master (needs doorway closed off). Beyond the low maintenance yard lies a tranquil city retreat! Start with the hurricane-rated casement-windowed, sunroom completed in 2013 by Elaine & Duke Darnold. Enjoy morning coffee & evening cocktails here or on the rear screened porch! The foyer flows to living room at right, windowed on 2 sides. Beyond is the dining room with fireplace & built-in niches for art display. At the rear of the house the kitchen's ceiling-height Kraftmaid wood cabinets are beautifully set off by black granite countertops. Efficient turntable corner storage, 2 below, 2 above counters, rotate for easy retrieval of culinary accouterments! A bedroom and master suite are on the left side, flowing from front to back. Each features fitted closets. The master bath features marble vanity, beadboard ceiling & additional built-in storage. Adjacent to the dining room is a sitting room, hall, bath & bedroom, which could make up a second master suite. At the rear of the house is a screened porch for summer living outdoors. Stow your vehicle in the garage and still have room for 3 more in the pavered drive! A whole-house generator & hurricane shutters protect your investment if foul weather threatens! The location of this close-in neighborhood puts one within easy walking distance of St. Augustine's historic downtown & bay front. Access to US 1 is convenient should one wish to drive to the beaches, commercial areas, or to Jacksonville.
