D.H. Cherry Subdivision was once within the colonial perimeter known as Mil y Quinientos, the colonial defense perimeter going to San Carlos Avenue in today's St. Augustine.

 

One of the first to secure land from Governor Jose Coppinger in 1807 was Juan Triay, a Minorcan. Part of the grant eventually passed to Captain John Masters, who was involved in the capture of the Osceola,  the most well-known leader of the Seminoles.

Kingsland’s widow sold the property to D. H. Cherry of Lauderdale, Tennessee in 1913. Cherry platted the land two weeks after purchasing it.

Frame Vernacular refers to the common wood frame technique employed by lay or self-taught builders. It was one of the prevalent types of residential building in Florida.

The houses built in this area, particularly along Fletcher Lane, are generally one-story hip-roofed buildings with wood shingle-siding in the Bungalow style.

 

The Bungalow was the most popular residential building design in Florida during the first three decades of the twentieth century.

 

The Bungalow residence is typically a one or one-and-one-half story building with a low-pitched gable roof with wide unenclosed eaves overhangs. The roof rafters are usually exposed and false brackets are commonly located under the gables.

 

Often, the most dominant architectural feature of the Bungalow is the porch, which is generally either full or partial width, with the roof supported by tapered square columns that frequently extends to ground level or sits on massive brick piers.

This attractive historic home for sale was originally inhabited by Mr. and Mrs. Reid who were active residents in St Augustine.

 

Mr. Reid worked as a cost engineer for the East Coast Railway, while his wife was a prominent artist.

 

A book with her work can be viewed on the dining room table.

 

The Reids moved to St. Augustine in 1926 from Baltimore, Maryland. Mrs. Celia Gregor Reid was an accomplished graphic artist and president of the St. Augustine Arts Club by 1937.

 

This group of dedicated professionals and amateur artists helped transform the historic town of St. Augustine into a thriving winter art colony that attracted hundreds of American artists, many from the northern art colonies of Rockport, Provincetown, Woodstock, Ogunquit and others.

 

Their work has been recognized as an important contribution to American regional art.

 

On top of its rich history, this property is walkable to shops and eateries.  It also has covered off street parking, a screened-in porch for relaxing,  and a fenced-in yard to enjoy the Florida sun.
