Yes, St. Augustine South is a great location that runs along the west side of the intracoastal waterway. You are looking at a 10-15 minute ride to downtown and/or the beach. I live near the South and drive to both downtown and the beach all of the time. St. Augustine South is very convenient to all of the stores along US1 South, grocery stores and the hospital is right next door. St. Augustine South does not have a mandatory homeowners association, but does have an active neighborhood and neighbors that get together if you choose to participate. It has a nice park and two boat ramps. It is an established neighborhood, with a variety of home styles and ages, and a few vacant lots still available for purchase. St. Augustine South is within the county, but not within the City of St. Augustine or St. Augustine Beach, so the taxes would be calculated at a little over 15 mills - but the best way to calculate the taxes is to go to the Property Appraiser's website at http://www.sjcpa.us
and click on the "Estimate My Taxes" tab. If I can be of further help with information, just let me know - I would be happy to help.
