St. Augustine is the oldest city in the United States, and with over 450 years of history it remains a destination beloved by guests and residents alike. Despite the city’s age, there is no shortage of new construction communities just waiting for residents to move in and call home. Among these newly constructed neighborhoods are several that offer single-story homes, which have many advantages, especially for those who may have trouble using stairs on a regular basis.
