During the Nights of Lights in St. Augustine the town is wrapped in a delightful glow and filled with holiday cheer for both residents and visitors. I have created this collection to showcase this event and provide you with the top websites for more detailed information.
Here is a selection of homes to choose from – there’s something for everyone!
7870 A1A South #302 | St. Augustine, FL 32080
Stunning ocean views from this penthouse, corner unit condo at Ocean House.
Expansive covered balcony. The views can be seen from everywhere within this top floor condo.
The interior is as striking as the view with the finest upgrades and design.
The owners have truly transformed this unit – after taking it down to the metal studs – and have lovingly enjoyed and cared for it since.
Beautifully designed kitchen arranged to allow the chef ocean views as well, with Meile appliances and Sub-Zero refrigerator with two freezer drawers, plus Sub-Zero two refrigerator drawer under-counter unit for easy access to drinks or fruit.
The sleek design of the Poliform Varenna Kitchen Cabinets topped with Calacatta Gold Marble countertop and tile backsplash adds elegance to the space, and, along with the pantry with Miele coffee system and plate warmer drawer.
During the remodel, the unit was fully rewired, replumbed and a/c ductwork all replaced. Windows and sliding doors replaced during remodel.
Electric roller shades by remote control to close some or all of the shades.
As we are leading up to Easter Sunday, and have really enjoyed some beautiful Spring days, my thoughts went to how this all relates to the real estate market. Yes, I had thoughts about the religious aspects of Easter, my family, those photos of my first Easter – but, let’s face it, I am writing this as a Realtor and should stick to what I know. You have others in your life who can cover the aspects of religion and family much better than I.
I couldn’t help think about how Easter renewal and Spring renewal can help us in our real estate decisions. Have you been thinking about downsizing? Maybe that can be a good thing and free you from some of the maintenance, costs, and time that a larger home may be taking. Maybe you are thinking you want to travel more, so you want to switch to a condo or patio home that will be more lock and leave. Have you been thinking that your growing family needs more room? Again, that can be a good to have more bedrooms, that office you need so you aren’t in the spare bedroom, a larger yard for the kids to run, or a pool or neighborhood pool for those warm summer days ahead. Maybe you have always wanted to live where you could walk to the beach – so, you can feel renewed each time you see the ocean. Maybe you feel that the salt air has been a harsh task master and you want to move just a bit farther inland so you don’t have the maintenance. Whatever it is, take just a minute and picture yourself in that new space – does it make you feel renewed? Then maybe, just maybe, it is time to make that move. Call me and let’s get started!
If you will be in St. Augustine for St. Patrick’s Day, you have a great opportunity for some good food and fun. I wanted to see where someone who wants to be Irish for a day would go – and Trip Advisor gave me theTop 5 Irish Restaurants (Pubs, right?) in St. Augustine.
What is great is that anywhere you are in St. Johns County, you won’t be too far from an Irish Pub and some great food!
Meehan’s Irish Pub, Barley Republic Public House and Ann O’Malley’s Deli & Pub are all located within and around the historic downtown area. You can get great views of the Bayfront from Meehan’s along with your food. Ann O’Malley’s is on the north side of downtown, so close to the parking garage, if that makes it easier for you to get there. Barley Republic is on Spanish Street and always puts up a tent with great music, food and drinks!
If you don’t want to venture downtown, you are not out of luck! For those on or near Anastasia Island, O’Loughlin Pub is located at 6975 A1A South just south of the intersection of A1A and SR 206. Of course, you can pop in to the party at the World Famous Oasis as well, since they always put up a tent, even if they are not technically an Irish Pub!
North of town isn’t left out either, since you have Donovan’s Irish Pub located at 7440 US Highway 1 North, right by Palencia!
So, you can go out and be Irish for the day and get some great food, great drinks – and great friendships with those enjoying right beside you!
