Property Details

Everyone knows this irrepressibly cheerful burst of sunshine presiding from its corner perch across from Lake Maria Sanchez. It is a classic in a city known for its wide and exciting range of architectural styles spanning well over a century.

With an eye to its history, many original details are intact, and you can contemplate them from your sunny living room which spans the width of the house. Federal moldings surround the windows, picture molding waits for art and the stained-glass panes cast rainbows around the room. Natural light bounces off the wooden floor and illuminates the room throughout the day and you can see the sparkling water and the birds as they skim along the lake looking for a snack! Built in 1860 the cottage is located across from Lake Maria Sanchez and neighbor to St. Augustine's historic Gonzalez-Alvarez House, everyone in town knows the Yellow Cottage. It has been captured in books, on canvas, and film by residents and visitors alike. Once part of the historic Valencia Hotel Group, the cottage has been cared for and protected for over a century!

Having weathered the years... 50 St. Francis Street has undergone a complete renovation and continues to stand strong representing a jewel in the crown of our Nation's Oldest City. The cobblestone bricks leading you up to the front door is sure to charm all its guest!

As you enter through the front door you will see the pride in ownership around every corner. From the antique mahogany mantel that wraps the fireplace in the living room and the expanded opening that transitions you from room to room. The high-end kitchen comes complete with GE Café appliances that include a dual fuel oven, dishwasher, side by side refrigerator/freezer and microwave. Custom granite countertops and cabinets with glass pane doors. The dining room has a built-in corner dining bench allowing for an open floor plan. The bedroom has a custom walk-in closet and double French doors leading you out to a Juliet deck. The bathroom has a custom corner vanity with a large walk-in shower with custom tile work. This historic one bedroom and one bathroom gem is fully renovated from the inside out. It has the historic charm with all the modern conveniences!

The Yellow Cottage was built in 1860 and this iconic gem represents a coveted property in the historic district!
