Perched on a high dune in Lighthouse Park, this one-of-a-kind home was designed to take full advantage of the views of Salt Run and the ocean over Anastasia State Park. The strategic placement of the home on the lot, the walls of windows, and miles of decking give the home a distinctly nautical feel reflecting the lifestyle, scenery, and history of Lighthouse Park. This home was originally built in 1910 as a small masonry beach cottage. Today, the cottage is a self-contained in-law suite with ground-level access to the in-ground pool and backyard. In 2003, two more stories were added over the cottage. The original wooden cottage ceiling was preserved and used as the ceiling for the second floor, giving the addition an always-been-there feel. In 2015, the current owner reworked and renovated the kitchen, office, and master bedroom for maximum style, function, and livability. Additional decking was also added, including a rooftop terrace that offers stunning views over Salt Run, the Atlantic, and the inlet. And finally, a detached garage with room for three vehicles was built in 2016. Terraced landscaping, new fencing, pavers, and cedar shake detailing on the house put the finishing touches on the exterior. Inside you'll find stunning features like Savannah Gold Heart Pine wood floors, a chef's-style gas range and double ovens, soaring ceilings, a tucked-away loft, and windows galore. Outside, against a backdrop of spectacular views, there's a sparkling pool and ample green space, fenced for security. The Live Oak tree canopy, natural flora, and smart positioning of the home and decking give it a private feel while being close to all St. Augustine has to offer. Downtown is only 1.4 miles away and is an easy bike ride. Lighthouse Park has its own fishing pier, boat launch and trailer parking, playground and tennis courts, and of course, the famed Lighthouse Maritime Museum. Anastasia State Park, the Alligator Farm, and the Amp are all within a mile and RB Hunt Elementary is a stone's throw away. This home offers history, impeccable style, comfort, gorgeous scenery, and an amazing lifestyle. This home is truly one-of-a-kind.
