Come and stay at our custom-built marsh-front BEACH HOME -- located just a block off the ocean. You will have all of the upper level (2nd story) & widow's peak to yourself. We are located 15 minutes south of historical downtown St. Augustine, 5 minutes north of Marineland, the world's first underwater studio and "oceanarium" and just 35 minutes north of the world-famous, fun-filled Daytona Beach, all beautiful coastal drives.
The upper level consists of a huge Dining-Kitchen-Living area with 1/2 bath, spacious bedroom with large full bath, wrap-around deck and a widow's peak/tower. The petite dining nook rests in the southeast corner and offers an ocean view. The modern, all-electric kitchen is fully equipped and separated from the living area by a full-length, old-Florida pecky cypress bar. The roomy living area is covered by cherry/oak wood floors hand-made from trees cut right here in Florida. The bedroom (with plush king-sized bed) and living area open onto wrap-around deck.
The west-facing deck is uncovered for those sunbathers not wanting to leave the house, and the southeast-facing deck is covered for a shaded reprieve. Ascend the spiral staircase to the tower for a panoramic view of the ocean, marshland, Matanzes Inlet, Summer Haven River & the Intracoastal Waterway.
Downstairs you have an outdoor garden shower (hot/cold)and a small deck looking out over the marsh. ALL VERY PRIVATE! Our custom-built home was made-to-order for 2 self-indulgent adults and is quite exquisite with its indigenous Florida wood accents -- the cypress bar, cherry-wood cabinetry, baseboards, and door framing/rosettes. Although built for 2, it sleeps 4 comfortably (sofa-bed) and up to 7 rather closely (blow-up mattress available). We sometimes use the blow-up mattress just to sleep out under the stars!

We, my husband & myself, are 50'ish & love staying in our own home. We stay in it as much as possible. We built this house in 2003 & have thoroughly enjoyed it. My husband is an avid fisherman, oyster-gatherer, clammer, & surfer.
The Owner purchased this house in 2003
We built our house primarily for ourselves. It had been a dream of my husband to live in this area since he was a teenager & began surfing.
Our house is a comfortable, working beach house. We have bikes, surfboard, fishing poles. The living area is very open & warm.
Thanks so much for sharing your home with us. It is a beautiful house and the beaches surrounding it are lovely. It was very comfy and cozy. A GREAT PLACE TO RELAX
