Here in our little slice of paradise, million dollar views don’t actually have to cost a million dollars. If you take a short but stunning drive down A1A, you’ll happen upon Butler Beach. It’s quiet and mostly residential, outside of the hustle and bustle of the St. Augustine streets but still close enough that you can enjoy all of the excitement of the city. And here in Butler Beach sits 5812 Rudolph Avenue. This charming beach home has all of the beauty of coastal living without the elevated prices. An inviting turquoise front door will welcome you into this 1920 sq. ft. home that features 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, a spacious living room, a two-car garage, and decks with an unbeatable view. The entire property is offered at $629,900.
Here’s what we love about it…
A BETTER THAN OCEANFRONT VIEW
You’ll hear most people sing the praises of direct oceanfront living. And trust us, it is pretty spectacular. With this property, though, you find something even better. This multi-level home is situated high on a dune and offers magnificent views of the ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway. And these spectacular views aren’t just visible from the porches – you can take in the coastal beauty from almost the entire third-floor living space. So grab your morning coffee, entertain your friends, and settle down in the evening with natural Florida beauty as your backdrop.
IDEAL FOR ENTERTAINING
With beautiful Mexican tile floors, an inviting fireplace, and panoramic views, the third-floor living space is just dying to be shown off. Enjoy a meal with friends in the cozy eat-in area or take your cocktails and wine to the spacious third-floor deck. Slide open the glass doors to let the ocean breeze through or curl up next to the electric fireplace when the evenings get chilly. Your friends and family will be begging for an invitation.
AN ENVIABLE MASTER SUITE
Facing east and flooded with gorgeous natural light, the master suite takes full advantage of its beach views with large windows. Though the room is already spacious, the size is enhanced with a walk-in closet as well as a separate ensuite space (perfect for a home office, den, small bedroom, craft room – the list goes on and on). It’s a practical but oh-so-pretty space.
ALL THE STORAGE YOU NEED
Let’s face it – one of the great struggles of life is finding storage space so that your home doesn’t feel cluttered. Well the builders of this beach house understood that problem and came up with a solution: build plenty of storage space! Inside the kitchen, you’ll find spacious cabinets and open shelving in the living room. Down in the two-car garage, you’ll find more storage tucked neatly under the staircase, allowing plenty of space for your vehicles or workshop. And on the east side of the house, there’s a covered storage room (shed included) that’s ideal for gardening tools, beach gear, and more.
