Property Description

Welcome to The Rovira-Hernandez House on Avenida Menendez in historic Downtown St. Augustine. With the original structure dating back to 1754, this property is full of history; notable owners include Charles Gobert and Alexander Hamilton. Parts of the downstairs structure, specifically the age of the coquina, make this one of the few original Spanish Colonial homes still standing. Positioned on the Mantazas River waterfront with eastern facing balcony views of the St. Augustine Lighthouse and the marina, visitors enter the large walled courtyard through a picketed wrought iron gate. From the garden, idyllic views of the waterway are framed by native palm trees, while a brick walkway leads to the property’s entrance and outdoor living area. The intimate setting is perfect for entertaining and hosting events. Entering the large foyer, custom wood ceiling details catch the eye. This traditional entryway is large enough to be used as a small reading room or as an entertaining area for cocktail hour or other social events. From the foyer, a grand staircase leads to the second floor while multiple cased openings carry you into the living room. Appointed with a fireplace and many windows, this gathering area serves as the heart of the home, setting a tone of warmth and expansiveness. A chefs kitchen is off of the living area, featuring a dining space and exterior doors that lead to the outdoor dining area and to the butler’s entrance off of Marine Street Climbing the wooden staircase to the second floor, you’re greeted by a sunlit landing with true to the era, large windows that take you out to the large balcony. The home’s bedrooms and a bathroom complete the second floor. The center room that serves as a third bedroom features a fireplace with brick surround, vaulted wooden ceilings, and a door to the western facing balcony. The beauty of this room invites many ideas for use, another cozy spot for family gatherings, a library, or even a place for entertainment. A hidden staircase leads to the third floor and attic. The space has a window with outstanding eastern views, and could be converted to a sleeping area or home office.
