14 Nelmar Avenue, St Augustine, FL 32084 - A favorite house in a beloved North City neighborhood, this welcoming brick colonial has been home to only 3 families over the past 90 years. Designed by noted architect, F A Hollingsworth, this legacy residence was built for the Honorable Frank D Upchurch whose grandchildren and their children still live in St Augustine. Known as the "estate section" in the city, Nelmar Terrace owners enjoy 1/4 acre lots, palm tree-lined sidewalks, mature oak canopies and a mix of architectural styles. Flanked by soon-to-be fragrant gardenias, a herringbone brick path leads to the columned portico where your exploration begins. Generous living and dining rooms on opposite sides of the center hall have gleaming wood floors complementing crisp white moldings and original arched doorways while soft natural light streams in through an abundance of windows. A double-sided (gas) fireplace in living and family rooms patiently waits for cool days and chilly evenings. These large rooms easily accommodate multiple furniture groupings and you'll appreciate the easy flow between them and the dining room. Butler's pantry/breakfast room retains the glass-fronted cabinets from 1927 and swinging doors to dining and kitchen. A half bath at the end of the hall serves day guests. Upstairs a wide gallery around the stairs splits the master from the guest rooms and there's a 7' built-in cupboard for linens, holiday decorations, arts and crafts and games. En-suite, the master has a cedar walk-in plus 2 additional closets. 2 spacious bedrooms on the west side share a bath. Out back the 34' x 37' brick courtyard is ready for action be it entertaining, container gardening, grilling and dining al fresco or all of the above - you'll definitely find yourself hosting gatherings of all sizes. And finally we come to the 1,304SF 3-car garage built 16 years ago and the envy of the neighborhood! A home for cars, boat, bikes, kayaks and there's an air-conditioned workshop/office. Welcome home....
