199 Matanzas Boulevard, St Augustine, FL 32080 - Life here is about sunshine and gentle breezes from the nearby Intracoastal Waterway which rustle through palm fronds in the yard. Laid back living Anastasia Island style means riding your bike to the white sand beach at Anastasia State Park, or to our Amphitheatre for first class concerts and Saturday Farmer's Market, not to mention trying out the indie restaurants, breweries, galleries and neat shops along the Boulevard - all within easy reach of the front door of this custom-built house. Thoughtfully designed by sailors who wanted their home on land to embrace the natural beauty of its setting and capture the breezes from the upstairs porch. Living much larger than square footage suggests, 2 covered porches add 776SF of living space to be enjoyed almost year round. Current owners have made their mark with an anodized aluminum awning reflecting St Augustine's sailing history, a Brazilian teak deck with stainless steel stair rails reminiscent of a ship and a Little Free Library for recycling books and meeting neighbors. Be sure to read "Some Things You Should Know" to learn about the house directly from the owners. Master and 2nd bedroom live downstairs and both open to 388SF screened room overlooking the backyard. Master has a fully outfitted walk-in with closet system maximizing every inch and private bath. Upstairs an open plan under vaulted ceiling includes living, dining and kitchen with 3rd bedroom and hall bath tucked away. 2 sets of glass doors open to another 388SF screened porch which will be enjoyed almost year round. Al fresco meals are a regular event along with sunsets over cocktails shared with friends and family. New detached studio in the backyard has a curved raised deck - a private spot for indulging your particular muse. Outdoor shower with hot and cold water is most welcome after a day at the beach and 4-legged family members will like the fenced yard. It's hard to squeeze everything into 2,000 characters so come see it - you'll be smitten!
