An unmatched beachfront view awaits you in this quiet residential part of Crescent Beach, FL just south of St. Augustine and north of Palm Coast. Solstice Beach House is an ocean front home located on A1A near the 206 bridge and I-95. Enjoy panoramic views of the ocean to the east and the inland waterway to the west from any of the 4 decks. Stroll down your own private walkway to one of the finest beaches in the world. Relax, kick back, and have a good time!
My name is Linda Kallman and my husband and our family have lived in Gainesville (about 80 miles west of the beach) since the Mid-80s. We have been regular visitors to St. Augustine beaches for decades and began planning our retirement after the very first vacation here!
Linda Kallman purchased this house in 2005
We purchased the vacant lot next to Solstice with plans to build a beach house when we retire, and then when Solstice came up for sale we couldn't resist the chance to have a house next door for guests! Please enjoy the best views and best beach for miles in this one of a kind house.
It's hard to believe now, but we actually bought this house sight-unseen! The beaches and the views in this area are the best around, which is why this part of the St. Augustine area was one of the first to be settled. High dunes, growing (as opposed to eroding) coastlines, and an incredible panoramic view of the ocean on one side and the inland waterway on the other side made Solstice a must-have property for us. Once we went inside, however, we discovered why the original owners--who built the home for their retirement--had loved it so much. It's a quintessential Florida Beach House, flooded with light, with wood and tile floors, an open floorplan and a comfortable feel without being overly fancy.
The entrance is a long private drive leading up to the house, which is set deep behind landscaping to lend an even more secluded feel. Situated high on the dune, by the time you even get to the front entrance you'll already feel relaxed. Once you get to the front entrance on the second story, you can look around and realize how unique Solstice is among beach houses in terms of privacy. A few other houses dot the landscape, but this section of beach was prevented from being overbuilt by the wildlife sanctuary across the street and the coalition that kept A1A from expanding to 4 lanes in this area. Condominium complexes are further north, and the Matanzas Inlet separates this section of beach from the crowds to the south. There are about 30 beach homes in the area, some are the original 60's and 70's houses built when this area was first 'discovered,' and others are large multi-million dollar houses built more recently.
A private drive, private beach access via your own walkway, views from high on the beach, and even an outdoor shower speak to the unique nature of this getaway.
