The 1876 Bronson Cottage is one of St. Augustine's most celebrated historic houses located on prestigious St. George Street in the highly coveted Historic Preservation District 1. This 6 bedroom/5 bath mansion majestically sits at a remarkably high elevation in the most romantic and historic part of the Nation's oldest city.
It is an architecturally significant residence designed by Alexander Jackson Davis (1803-1892) for a prominent New York family in 1875 that combines sartorial elegance, cultural refinement and sheer luxury that only the finest of American classical architects deliver in a manner not easily replicated by modern standards of design, construction, tradition and quality of workmanship.
Davis was one of the most influential and innovative figures in nineteenth-century American architecture who helped design a number of State Capitols (Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and North Carolina) and the New York Customs House. His work, particularly his designs for Gothic Revival and Italianate styles, had a profound effect on the evolution of the American house.
The Bronson Cottage is the only known example of Davis's work in the State of Florida and is ideally suited for the most discriminating of buyers who dream of experiencing the unique charms of an iconic architecturally significant residence whilst enjoying the essential upgrades of modern living in one of the Nation's most highly rated coastal destinations.
