A gated community on Anastasia Island, Marsh Creek boasts spectacular views of expansive marshlands, a beautifully laid out golf course, and some of the most beautiful homes in St. John’s County.
Beachfront living does not get any better than this. Homes on the beach range from condominium living to large single-family structures. The white sands, sunny weather, and gorgeous views make living on St. Augustine Beach beyond desirable.
Vilano Beach lies North of St. Augustine. This area is close to downtown and just south of the Sawgrass Golf Resort. The beach and Intracoastal Waterway make this area very attractive to anyone desiring a true Florida lifestyle.
St. Augustine South/ St. Augustine Shores
Traditional subdivisions in St. Johns County, these two communities are built along the Intracoastal Waterways. Homes run from simple 3-bedroom, 2 bath homes perfect for a new family, to larger homes with a water view. Boat ramps, play areas, community areas, picnicking – all of these amenities make these two sections of St. Augustine very attractive to buyers and sellers.
World Golf Village
Northern St. Johns County is home to World Golf Village. Luxury accommodations at the World Golf Renaissance Resort make this golf paradise complete. The Neighborhoods of WGV offer shopping and a casual lifestyle surrounded by beauty and the great outdoors. Homes in the WGV area range from 1 bedroom condominiums to 5000+ s/f single-family homes. The community has its own restaurants, shopping and, of course, golf!
North of the Historic District and the City Gates, lies the North City section of St. Augustine. Gracious live oaks, Spanish-style homes, beautiful lawns and established landscaping, trees and neighborhoods make this area especially attractive.
Southwest of St. Augustine, Flagler Estates is an area of dynamic change and growth. Originally large lots with scattered mobile homes and unpaved roads, Flagler Estates is suddenly “waking up.” The recent paving of roads and influx of well-built single-family homes is changing this traditionally affordable area into a good community of young families purchasing or building their first homes.

Preparing to Sell Your Home?
Here are some basics that will make your experience more successful:
- Curb appeal is so important, little improvements make a big difference in how buyers react to your home. To get the most favorable price spend some time touching up your home with paint and landscaping as well as any necessary repairs you may have put off. Someone may be charmed by your home and make a quick offer!
- What about pets? Make arrangements for pet care if your house is also home to a cat or dog so real estate agents can be cautious. You may close your pets off in a separate room or fenced area, or request notice when your home is going to be shown.
