Description of 2 Tremerton Pl, ST AUGUSTINE - MLS# 1205083
Arguably one of St. Augustine's best ''Arts and Crafts'' style bungalows, this iconic Intracoastal front home evokes classic charm with beautiful outdoor living spaces, manicured grounds, a 3-bedroom main house with a traditional interior and a detached 1-bedroom carriage house. Located on a premier, less traveled waterfront street in the heart of the Old City, this home embodies timeless and elegant Florida architecture and was recently designated as a Local Historic Landmark. A row of palms greets you from the street and jasmine weaves through the archway above as you make your way in through the gate. The classic 25ft porch is perfect for chatting with neighbors as they pass by, and it almost insists on a slower pace. One of three homes in St. Augustine with rare coquina brick, these beautiful columns stand tall at the corners of the front porch and sunroom and offer a unique texture and style indoors and out. A sunlit foyer welcomes you in and the large windows to the east immediately draw your view across the lawn to the Intracoastal. The sunroom is to the front, one parlor to the right and the main parlor ahead with detailed moldings, tall ceilings with beautiful casings, heart pine floors and a wood burning fireplace to keep you warm when cooler weather is in town. The formal dining room overlooks the main parlor, making an easy flow for entertaining. The kitchen is tucked to the back with a quaint breakfast area and a mud room with additional storage. The master bedroom is off the main parlor to the right, complete with views across the lawn to the Intracoastal, while two additional bedrooms and a shared bath are on the opposite side. Outside, the detached garage and carriage house buildings create a quaint courtyard with a 'secret garden' like setting, perfect for drinks or dining al-fresco and there's plenty of room on the lawn for gatherings with friends and family. A new concrete bulkhead borders the property to the east and the dock offers power, water, boat lift and seating area on the water with views of the Bridge of Lions, the Lighthouse across the bay! The guest cottage is perfect for overnight guests - complete with 1BR/1BA, a full galley kitchen, living room with wood burning fireplace and incredible views across the bay from the screened porch. Under the guest cottage is a storage room and a carport-style storage area perfect for parking the boat, jet ski's or the golf cart. There's a detached one car garage with a long driveway and ample off-street parking for a few in tandem so park the cars and head out to explore the local offerings nearby. From historic landmarks, strolls along the bayfront and an array of local eateries, it's all close by...welcome home!
