The Greatroom is the Central Focus

The Chautauqua starts with the Great room - 24 foot long – which acts as the main focal point. We kept the original 1926 quarried Coquina fireplace. It is Real Coquina - Just like the Fort you will see in Old St Augustine! (We are still looking for someone to restore it). The Bead board wainscoted is also original, carefully removed & refinished from the original walls. The floors are Heart of Pine. They don’t even grow wood like that any more. The stairs and loft are Brazilian Cherry. The windows are cased in specially milled period trim. Even the interior doors, all 8 foot, were patterned after the originals. It has 3 comfortable Leather Couches around the TV ENTERTAINMENT CENTER with WIRELESS INTERNET - a MUSIC CENTER with PIANO & Guitar – a LARGE DINING table  – a Powder Room – lots of Wall Sconces - and Wonderful OCEAN VIEWS.

3rd Floor - It looks like a Ship's Cabin

As good as the main level is, most would agree that the LOFT is the show place of it all. Running the entire length of the house. With Brazilian Cherry floors and wainscot, it was designed to resemble a ship’s cabin. There is a POOL TABLE, WET BAR with antique corner sink, Frig and extra microwave. Great for late night popcorn.  Also a comfortable leather recliner.  Lots of Games and a Library of Books. PLUS 3 "THE KIDS FAVORITE" the SLEEPING BERTHS with TVs!

Sleeping Berths

Whereas the adults will enjoy the loft, it was really made for the children and it’s the SLEEPING BERTHS they will be fighting over. There are 4 in all.  Compartments built into the walls, like a ship.  Complete with individual reading lights, TVs with DVD Players and under bed Storage Drawers for all their “stuff”. There are 3 singles and 1 double that serves double duty as a play area with hidden storage compartment.

Garage and Laundry

The Main House has THREE spots, one in the garage to the left and 2 on the cobblestone drive way.  If you rent the Whole house you can easily park SIX. One in each Garage and 4 doubled up on the drive way. This would block the 2 garages ..  so best to bring only 4 cars if you can.
