Description

Dating back to 1807, the Triay house is named for the family that built it and whose descendants still live in St Augustine. One of only 30 surviving colonial structures from the second Spanish Period, history buffs will have no shortage of reading material in anticipation of becoming the next steward of this much loved residence. Located in the heart of the Historic District with a myriad of architectural, culinary and cultural offerings in every direction, your car will gather dust as you happily explore everything on foot. Enter directly into the living room where the beamed ceiling and fireplace provide rich detail. Connecting to what has been an office and dining room in the past, both open to a sunny foyer that leads to a deliciously private courtyard. Walled on all sides, this outdoor salon is enjoyed year round. Al fresco dining will take on an international flavor as it's easy to forget where you are and what day it is when transported to your favorite European cities. The walls of the stairway lend themselves as a gallery where you can display and enjoy seeing your art on every trip. Overlooking the courtyard there is a sitting area at the top of the stairs and right next to the small kitchen. Owners have used the 2nd floor as their private space while the 1st was dedicated to entertaining and cooking outdoors. The very generous bedroom has windows looking north and east and another fireplace waiting for cool evenings. Closet and full bath complete the suite. Since 1963, this has been the home of a couple who made many significant imprints on our city. Professor of Art at Flagler College, re-enactors, historians, perpetual volunteers for all things historic and preservation oriented, they were honored when 42 Spanish St was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986 and there is a plaque on the east side proclaiming it the Triay-Hall House. The favorable zoning in this district permits both residential and commercial uses and parking is not required by code. The property offers one parking spot for residents. While the building itself is protected, you are free to take on an interior remodel to suit your desires. Owning a piece of living history is an exciting opportunity - we are happy to help you with all manner of resources, photographs and information. At least two sets of neighbors are also families who go back many generations so you have a built-in human library just down the street! A magic place indeed....
