Description

THE CHAUTAUQUA - Direct Oceanfront - Best Beach - Best House (7 BD 5.5 BA - Sleeps 21)

LOOKS STRAIGHT OUT OF POTTERY BARN" -
Rebuilt in 2006 from the studs up to maintain the integrity of the original 1926 bungalow there is painstaking attention to detail from the Original Heart of Pine floors and reclaimed 1924 Bead Board to the New Stone Baths and 1st floor Stone Floors. With 2 Greatrooms, 2 Kitchens, 3 Porches, huge Bonus Room, Pool Table, Piano & large Oceanfront Lawn there is plenty of room for 2 or more families to come together away from their daily grind, to enjoy each other, the sun & the surf and "create memories". Check out the WALK THRU Videos under the Floor Plan Tab. It is the best way to get a feel of the house. Just use your mouse to walk thru. I think you will love it.

 

2 GREATROOMS - It starts with the Open Great room - 24 foot long – which acts as the main focal point of the house with the TV, Kitchen, Dining and 4 Bedrooms on each corner.  I fell in love the minute I saw it and knew I had to restore it to is former glory.  I think we surpassed it.  We kept the original 1926 quarried Coquina fireplace (now with lovely electric flames).  It is REAL Coquina - not what they make houses of now -  Just like the Fort you will see in Old St Augustine! The Bead board wainscoted is also from the original house, carefully removed and restored. The floors are original Heart of Pine, sanded back to their original glory. They don’t even grow wood like that anymore.  Even the interior doors, all 8 foot, were patterned after the originals.  There is loads of molding, all “in period”, specially milled. We even found the old picture mold with hooks for hanging photos instead of nails.

 

2 KITCHENS & 2 LAUNDRIES - Then we started adding the NEW touches.  A state of the art Gourmet Kitchen.  Full wood Cherry Mission cabinets with tumbled marble backsplash and gorgeous seascape metallic tile accents.  The most unusual Granite I had ever seen. Looks like sand. The Main Kitchen includes Double Ovens, Microwave, Stainless Farm Sink and large Eating Bar and Honed Chisel-edged Stone floors. Downstairs is a second complete Kitchen with striking glass block backsplash, so plenty of room for all the cooks.  Both with a full array of cooking tools, dishes, pots and pans to create your most cherished family recipes. Plus 2 Laundries.

 

6 DINING AREAS - There is a large Dining Table for 10 + Bar Stools on the Main level + a 1st floor Dining table for 7 +  high 2 stool table. Outdoor we have 1 table on the Main Covered Porch + 1 on the open Patio & 1 on the First floor and 1 on the 3rd. Lots of tables.

 

FOR ENTERTAINMENT - A PIANO & GAMES.  You have to have a Piano at a beach house.  So we have a music corner with Piano, Guitar, flute and bamboo xylophone for your enjoyment. Games? Cards? I am big on games so there are lots of Board Games. Rummikub is our Family Favorite. Please try it. Call for instructions or Google it. I promise you will always be glad you did. We play it 5 to 95.

 

BONUS ROOM - POOL TABLE/WET BAR/KIDS HANG OUT/BALCONY VIEW/5 BEDS/1 BATH - Most would agree that the 3rd floor BONUS ROOM is the show place. Whereas the adults will enjoy it for the full size POOL TABLE and WET BAR with antique corner sink and microwave for late night popcorn. For the kids, it is the SLEEPING BERTHS they will be fighting over.  This is their place to "Hang". There are 3 Single Berths complete with individual reading lights, TVs, DVDs and under bed Storage Drawers for all their “stuff”. You will have to pull them away to get them down to the beach. Plus a Full Futon Alcove on the left that doubles as a bed and an extra Single Daybed/Couch, so 6 in all. The bath is a classic.  All white subway tile wainscot with mosaic floor and glass inlay band in the tub/shower combo.  The sink looks like a piece of furniture with Granite top & white Vessel Sink.
 

And there is an UNSURPASSED VIEW from the Balcony.  Arched and Covered recessed into the house for sun and wind protection, you can enjoy the view from another teak table and chair set and take some quite time to read a book from The Chautauqua’s LIBRARY or play one of our Board Games listening to the surf.

 
3 PORCHES - The Oceanfront porch is probably one of the best assets. There are 3. This is where you will spend most of your time so there is LOTS of seating - All Teak Wood.   On the Main Level we have Rockers & Adirondacks,  benches & 2 sets of table and chairs – one on the porch and the other on the Patio. There is also an Upstairs Balcony off the Pool Table room and a Stone Covered Patio on the 1st Floor with more seating and glass topped dining.

 

OUTDOOR GRILL/SHOWER/BEACH CHAIRS - There are 2 outdoor showers. Plenty of Beach Chairs & Boogie Boards + Beach toys and Towels. Also a Grill with both Gas (provided) and Charcoal options.
 

PARKING - There are 2 single garages and room for 2 more cars on the paver patio so that all 4 can get out. If you need more space there is room for 2 more cars but it will block the rest, so a total of 6 Parking Spots.

BEDROOM DETAIL - MAIN FLOOR - There are 2 OCEAN FRONT MASTERS both with full Stone Bathrooms.  The first with a King Bed features a Coral Stone Bathroom.  Off-white shell stone floors and walls with black stone accents and cabinets.  It includes an antique CLAWFOOT Tub complete with Nickel fixtures and hand shower. Plus a RAIN SHOWER with HAND SPRAY, Two vanities with granite tops and gorgeous Kohler farm sink faucets, wonderful Nickel light fixtures and private water closet. The other Master with West Indies style Canopy Bed features a bath of taupe colored stone with inset blue glass, a  SOAKING TUB/SHOWER combo, White Cottage Vanity with matching Storage Cabinet, Granite tops and Stone Vessel Bowl sink. Also done in Nickel fixtures. The 3rd Master also comes with a Private Bath. The walls are Bead Board with a Queen Canopy Bed + fold down single sofa. The bath has an old fashion Stone mosaic rug pattern floor and subway stone shower and wainscot. There is a unique circular white vanity with stainless accents plus White Storage Cabinet. Bedroom 4 also has a Bead Board wainscot with a Queen bed.  It uses the Powder room and the Bonus Room Shower.

 

FIRST FLOOR - The 1st floor has 2 Queen Bedroom sharing 1 white subway tile Tub/Shower. The Master is Ocean side with Queen bed and Sliding doors out to a Covered Porch.  The Second Bedroom is a Queen and there is a Pull Out Queen Sofa in the Greatroom.  All STONE FLOORS throughout, even the walls on the Outdoor Covered Lanai.

 

All Bedrooms come with TVs. Most with DVD players. Plus Wireless Internet.

 

BEST BEACH - So HOW IS THE BEACH? Great question. St Aug Beaches vary widely.  You should ask for details if you are considering anything other than a home with an address of 1 to 18th Street.

 

First is the Powdered Sand.  The Chautauqua’s sand is like powder-not coarse ground up shells like Vilano.  Great for drip castles!

 

Second, at The Chautauqua the ocean is right “At Your Door Step”.  There is no long raised boardwalk with a 5 -10 minute walk across the dunes to navigate with the cooler & chairs before you ever get to the water.  There are some “Oceanfront” to the south at Butler or Crescent Beach where the ocean is so far you cannot even see the waves. At the Chautauqua, the ocean is right there.

 

Third, there are No Cars.  This is a major distinction.  Imagine trying to play paddle ball with cars continually passing by & having to be on constant baby alert. Not while you are on vacation! Note everything south of A Street all the way to Marineland have cars on the beach. E

 

Next, the beach is wide, level & private - Some beaches are very narrow & steep.  It's almost impossible to ride the waves. But the locals consider The Chautauqua the Best Surfing around.  There is a wonderful Surf shop, Pit Surf, with lessons & rentals right at the end of our street but you can have plenty of fun with the boogie boards we provide for free. No need for Rental. Plus No High Rise condos either! All single family nearby.


ONLY 5 MILES to DOWNTOWN - There is more to St Augustine that just the Beach. Our Downtown founded in 1565 is the oldest continuously occupied European Settlement in the US and one of the Top 6 Florida destinations according to US News & World Reports. (They rank us #2 Best Affordable Honeymoon Destination and our Beach #5 in USA). You'll feel like you are back in time. Strolling Old World Walking Streets. Romantic Lighting. Outdoor Music filling the air. There are scores Historic Sights and fabulous Restaurants. Call or my LIST of THINGS TO DO. With the Beach and the History we are truly a "Must Do".


BOOKMARK ME - Please keep us in mind for small or large groups both at the Beach or Downtown.  In addition to the 7 Bedroom Chautauqua just a few streets north on 9th Street I have 4 Seaside Cottages ranging from 1 to 5 Bedrooms. Downtown are 2 Historic Homes just 2 blocks from each other, great for Wedding Guests, that range from 1 to 4 Bedrooms (Sleeping 2 to 14 each - 28 Total). See www.LindasBeach.com to view them all (Remember you save 5-15% when you book direct with me vs Homeaway or Airbnb).
 

CALL LINDA - My goal is to create the "Ultimate Vacation Experience" on the "Best Beach" and have it become a part of "Your Family Tradition" so that you will grow to consider us "Your second home in St Augustine".

 

Feel free to call me anytime at 904.465.3852. I always answer my phone and am here to help. I am also a Realtor so if you "Fall in Love" like I did, I can help you find a great deal on a Vacation Home. I would love to take you Shopping.
