    Legal:City St. Augustine n-70 of E-90' of Lot 3; BLK 36;
    Marketing:One of the City's most prestigious Historic downtown properties, with residential and commercial opportunities. One of the only existing 24 structures in town that can be documented as surviing, authentic Colonial structures, and only one of two still held as private residences! Legally a multi-family with in-law suite for guests or long-term rental.
    Additional Marketing:This circa 1740's property includes a 2 1/2 story, residential Spanish Colonial historic home (with 6 working fireplaces)--the main house has 12' wood-beamed ceilings, 4 bedrooms as well as 2 & 1/2 updated baths and state-of-the-art kitchen. Currently used as a successful vacation rental. A new, 1-bedroom, spacious in-law apt. (with granite kitchen, open floor-plan, walk-in closet & full bath) sits over the 3-car, detached garage. First period Spanish construction, this home offers the authenticity of an Early Territorial period home with uniquely exquisite high ceilings and large spacious rooms--unheard of in traditional Colonial times! Once said to be owned by the Spanish Crown, evidence abounds of the magnificence of the structure, including extra-large coquina block, said to be left over from the completion of the Fort! Built sturdy for a King, with Heart pine, Copper gutters and slate roof! Wood floors and ceilings throughout. Exterior features include a servants entry to the brick-tiled kitchen floor with new cabinets and granite--and a cozy fireplace like no kitchen you have probably ever been priviledged to own before! This one is priced right, at less than $200 a square ft., including the walled courtyard, electronic gates, three car garage and new guest house above--with all the most modern amenities! Views from upstairs include the terra-cotta spires of Henry Flagler's Ponce de Leon Hotel, and some of the city's most recognizable buildings! Close to the Plaza, marina, boat docks, tennis courts, shopping, restaurants and more, making it a desireable rental property. Live in one building and use the other as a monthly rental. Website as a vacation rental may convey!
    Directions:From I-95-N: Exit SR. 16 East (6 miles), to US 1. South (2 miles) to King St. East (left). From South, take I-95 to St. Augustine exit US 1 N. Go 20 miles. Take King St. East (right) to downtown St. Augustine Historic district. Take a right (south) on St. George St., 1 block on right is 224--see heavy wooden gates. Parking on street or call ahead for gated secured parking. In January-March, King St. will be re-routed for construction--follow detour to King St. and downtown.

    A client bought a new home and the broker wanted to send flowers for the occasion. They arrived at the home and the owner read the card; it said "Rest in Peace". 

    The owner was angry and called the florist to complain. After he had told the florist of the obvious mistake and how angry he was, the florist said. "Sir, I'm really sorry for the mistake, but rather than getting angry you should imagine this: somewhere there is a funeral taking place today, and they have flowers with a note saying, "Congratulations on your new home".
