This Historic Victorian in Beautiful St. Augustine is Dripping with Character
272 St. George Street, St. Augustine, Florida
The unique footprint of this classic Victorian reminds us of another famous Florida home: The Captain’s House in Fernandina Beach which was featured in the 1987 movie The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking.
Front Porch with Character
Who says every front porch ceiling in the South needs to be painted blue? Here, a bright shade of green is a quirky take on the tradition.
From the floors to the staircase, all the home’s intricate millwork has been artfully restored to its original splendor.
The same green from the front porch is used again to spiff up the staircase’s kickboards. This cheerful shade is used throughout the home.
Comfy Living Room
Here, modern furniture contrast beautifully with the original wood molding and floors.
Spacious Dining Room
A restored fireplace serves as an interesting focal point in the dining room. Next to it, a wall bump-out serves as the perfect spot for a floor plant while adding depth to the space.
Old meets new in the updated eat-in kitchen.
A charming breakfast nook (with porch access!) sits right off the kitchen.
Al Fresco Dining Area
The spacious porch includes a secluded area perfect for outdoor entertaining.
Light-Filled Guest Bedroom
Beautiful bay windows are the stars of this dreamy retreat.
A double vanity plus stained glass? Where do we sign?
Second Floor Landing
The quirky green staircase continues connects the second and third floors as well.
The third floor is full of cute nooks and crannies for reading, relaxing, you name it!
Location, Location, Location
The home sits just three blocks away from the Matanzas River.
