*SEE VIDEO under 'Facts & Features' & Virtual Tour.* Perched on an attractive and noticeable corner lot in the elite waterfront Pelican Reef neighborhood, 101 Gaillardia Loop offers the epitome of iconic craftsman luxury in historic St Augustine. Masterfully custom designed with classical touches and updated to fortress status, the facade alone communicates graciousness and comfort. The interior seamlessly reinforces this theme, each space presenting like an elegant showroom with just the right amount of soft touches to enhance the experience. Coffered ceilings, beautiful molding, designer light fixtures and red oak flooring refinished with gray undertones that give off a calming glow. Built ins, a butler pantry, Viking & high efficiency appliances, etched copper, smooth granite, a soapstone sink, plenty of prep areas, a subzero fridge & a large custom storage pantry...the Dining & Kitchen are truly a culinary playground for the lavish host. A more casual dining area with a fireplace sits off the kitchen in close proximity to the laundry room, custom summer kitchen & pool area. The dramatic two story great room is complemented by strong woodwork, a fireplace focal point, loads of natural light and a soft black balustrade offering contrast to the massive amounts of brilliant airiness. The master suite sits above the entrance of the home with a portico, useful for private moments taking in the intracoastal sunset. A sitting area, roomy customized closet with dressing table, gorgeous bathroom with executive vanities, dual showers and inlaid tile artwork fill out the suite. Three other bedrooms and two full baths complete the upstairs with charming custom window benches & work spaces sprinkled throughout. Downstairs living room with en suite bath and large walk in closet could be used as a fifth ground floor bedroom, office or den. The home is surrounded by what feels like acres of porch space, a salt water pool with a waterfall feature, privacy hedge, outdoor shower, pool bath, ample lounging areas and a mature tropical garden. Separate garage (with room for lifts) with ensuite apartment and kitchenette above. 101 Gaillardia Loop is part of Pelican Reef, the only gated island waterfront community on Anastasia Island which is just a stone's throw from the Bridge of Lions, the Lighthouse, the wide open beaches of Anastasia State Park and RB Hunt-a top rated St Johns County school to name a few. The Community Marina enables stunning views of downtown St Augustine and the ability to purchase a boat slip separately to enjoy the navigable Intracoastal waters. It's no wonder HGTV built a 2024 Dream Home just down the road. 101 Gaillardia Loop is truly Anastasia Island's ICONIC FOREVER HOME and is now available!
