Overview

About the property

This 1885 two story carriage house has 3 bedrooms & 2 baths. Sleep in history.

This 1885 carriage house in the historic Lincolnville neighborhood is just minutes from the historic town square and dozens of excellent restaurants (many of which allow pets), museums and original plus re-constructed historic buildings. Flagler College is 2 blocks away. St George Street, the heart of the historic district, is just 3 blocks away and runs down to our most famous landmark, the Castillo de San Marcos Spanish fort. From the quiet and peaceful balcony you’ll enjoy church bells and the sound of horse drawn carriages passing by, all under the canopy of our 250+ year old Live Oak tree.

Two houses down an excellent new restaurant in the house built for Thomas Jeffersons grand daughter. The Carriage House is non-smoking and pet friendly. The pet fee is $100

About Barry Fouts

Florida natives; me from Lakeland and Pat from Jacksonville. St Augustine has always been our favorite city. Nearly everything in St Augustine's historic district is authentic, and you can feel the citys history as you walk the cobblestone streets. Almost 8 years ago we purchased two beachfront town house units and discovered the fun of vacation rentals. Parking in downtown St Augustine is no fun. We knew any property we chose had to be within easy walking distance, and this carriage house is perfect: close in and historic on its' own. When we can get away from our parrots, Guineas, peacocks, dogs, cats, horses, one rescue pony, several resident wild deer we head to The Olde City. Coming from a 55 acre farm 15 miles from anywhere to St Augustine is a treat we thoroughly enjoy.

Barry Fouts purchased this house in 2015

Why Barry Fouts chose Lincolnville

Location is everything, and this property proves that theorem. Clean, modern appliances, yet historic under a 250+ yr old Live Oak tree and walk everywhere with our dogs. Sitting on the balcony after a day of sight seeing is wonderfully relaxing.

What makes this house unique

In 1930 this carriage house was deeded away from the main house. It has no backyard, but a deep front yard able to park 4 cars, even a 30' motorhome. Most houses in this area were built on the edge of the street, and have only on-street parking. Being two story allows a restful view of the occasional passing horse drawn carriages while relaxing on the shaded balcony. In April we enjoyed watching hawks nesting in the oak trees, and squirrels sounding their alarms. We enjoy calling for a pedicab to ride us and our dogs to our favorite dog-friendly restaurants. For tips only (usually $10 per ride) the young men drivers give a guided tour on the way and tips on best places to eat, etc.

Comfortable, Quiet, and Convenient Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had planned a weekend with another couple to go to the amphitheater in St. Augustine. Barry's Carriage House had been recommended to us by friends that had stayed prior. It was a great location! We loved having our morning coffee on the upstairs veranda and our wine in the afternoon on the downstairs deck. Very convenient to the downtown area. We, also, had a fantastic brunch at the Preserved Restaurant just a few houses down on the corner.

We will definitely stay again.

Thanks Barry for your hospitality.

St Augustine

This 1885 carriage house in the historic Lincolnville neighborhood is just a few minutes walk from the town square and dozens of excellent restaurants, museums and original plus re-constructed historic buildings. Flagler College is 2 ½ blocks away. St George Street, the heart of the historic/tourist district, is just 3 blocks away and runs down to our most famous landmark, the Castillo de San Marcos Spanish fort. From the quiet and peaceful second floor veranda you’ll enjoy church bells and horse drawn carriages passing by, all under the canopy of our 250+ year old Live Oak tree. Last year hawks raised their babies less than 20' from the balcony.

Two doors away an excellent restaurant named Preserved in the house built for Thomas Jefferson’s great granddaughter. We’re loving walking two doors down for lunch.
