Have you ever dreamed of a home that truly reflects the character and lifestyle of downtown St. Augustine? For those people who seek the flavor of urbanity, not an extension of suburbia, this 5bd/3ba home set on a 0.43 acre lot offers you flexibility to be creative in both design and use. Owned by Henry Flagler, built circa 1885-1894, this home was residence to the officials of the Flagler Enterprise. This estate sized property is the opportunity to be part of the history and make your mark. This home is adorned with all the charm of the architectural styles of this period. Wrap-around porches framed by stunning white trim and bold columns give this home its Southern appeal. Tall, mostly original-glass, shuttered windows give it its trademark radiance. Exploring this home is a joy while discovering each artfully unique feature is an adventure unto itself. The first floor of the home was designed to impress. From the grand foyer and elegant staircase that greets you, a cozy parlor anchored by a white-trimmed fireplace inspire dreams of soothing evenings of a crackling fire and a good read. Original egg and dart crown molding adds to its innate elegance. Off the parlor extends the formal dining room which could accommodate a guest list upwards of ten with ease. To the right of the foyer is the grand family room, anchored by the home’s second white-trimmed fireplace. The family room runs the length of the home, providing more than enough space for the host to entertain. Kitchen spaciousness is not a concern. With ample room for a breakfast nook, the kitchen is a joy to craft in but is ripe for re-creation. Between the kitchen and formal dining room is a butler’s pantry, equipped with a built-in china cabinet. Upstairs, we have five generous sized bedrooms and three full bathrooms which can be re-configured to accommodate a true master bedroom suite, an office/den, and guest bedrooms. This home was built to stand the test of time and will not disappoint.
