The Heart of any European City is it's DOWNTOWN; the core consisting of an open marketplace, merchants and religious institutions. Without this heart, many cities are like lifeless corpses. NOT ST. AUGUSTINE ! The Nation's Oldest City is the crown jewel of Florida's East Coast. Our City is a reflection of a typical European Coastal small town with deep, rich Historic Districts, the Oldest House, the Oldest School House, the Fountain of Youth Zoological Park, and the pride of St. Augustine - the Castillo De San Marcos.
Also known as Fort Marion, this fortification is a key part of US History. The picture above is temporary since it is somewhat simple but anyone who has seen it would instantly recognize it by this simple photograph.
Neighborhoods in the Downtown area include: the City of St. Augustine, Model Land Company, the Abbott Tract, Rohde's Addition, and more.

St. Augustine is a peninsula; it is bounded onthe East by Matanzas Bay (the Intracoastal Waterway) and on the West by the San Sebastian River, which winds along the local marinas, boatbuilders, fishing and shrimping boatyards. The river also runs under King Street where the San Sebastian Winery is located and continues North under State Road 16. Within the City limits are the headquarters of the Florida National Guard and Nationally recognized Flagler College; one of the most beautiful college campuses in the country.
HOME PRICES IN THE DOWNTOWN AREA CAN RANGE FROM THE LOW $100'S (in limited areas of the City) TO $1+MILLION ON THE WATERFRONT. HOWEVER, THE MORE COMMON AVERAGE SALES PRICE RANGE IN THIS AREA IS FROM THE MID TO HIGH $200'S TO THE MID TO HIGH $400'S (with various exceptions). Again, this is MLS AREA 4.
