Welcome to 290 Saint George street, a stunning, Historic District home with detached cottage that makes a superb guest home, thoughtfully renovated by the distinguished John Benoit at BEHST Builders. This rare find is located in the heart of downtown Saint Augustine, just a short walk away from all the restaurants, shops, and amenities the city has to offer. This home was designed by Fred Henderich, a leading architect in Florida in the early 1900s, as his personal residence. The recent extensive renovation seamlessly fused Old World charm from 1900 with 21st-century conveniences to match today's lifestyles. The property sits on a 62.5x200 lot, running from St George to Cordova St on Lake Maria Sanchez, and offers a deep front yard with ample parking in the rear off Cordova St.

Supplements: Both houses have been completely renovated with no expenses spared carefully saving original character and history but with brand new construction and conveniences. As you approach the property, you will be greeted by a cozy, neighborly front porch that leads you to the original front door. The house boasts an abundance of natural light and features large rooms with original detailed woodwork throughout. As you enter the home, the wide sunlit foyer opens to a living room on the left with coffered ceilings, built-in bookcases, and a fireplace that welcomes a ventless gas system. To the right is a large dining area with built in book cases sparkles with delight as the rays of the sun enter through the leaded-glass windows. Straight ahead is a half bath/powder room for guests to enjoy. The home features an en-suite bedroom downstairs, with the bedroom featuring a wonderful bathroom that includes floor to ceiling tile work, a walk in shower, and a standing tub as well as two separate large his and hers vanities. The downstairs en-suite opens seamlessly to the sunroom off the rear of the main house, this Makes the perfect sitting area for a cup of coffee on brisk mornings. Directly off the sunroom is an attached large screened porch perfect for the warmer summer and spring. The wide stairway with 2 landings leads to the upstairs en-suite complete with a nautical themed bathroom including a steam shower and double vanity. Natural light pours in the windows and skylight upstairs making this a peaceful getaway for anyone.
