The inspiration for the DAVIS SHORES neighborhood came from real estate developer D.P. Davis in the early 1920's. Davis had experienced great success in his early developments of the Buena Vista section of Miami, Florida and of Davis Islands in Tampa, Florida. Extensive plans were made for Davis Shores which included land fill of the marsh areas of Anastasia Island, Venice-style canals, a large hotel & casino and exclusive residential properties. Development was halted during the Florida land boom of the mid 1920's. All that remains from this historic time-period is a handful of the original 1920's residential properties.
The area saw a resurgence of growth after WWII in the 1950's and is neighborhood is now largely populated by mid-century ranch-style homes popular from that era. Davis Shores also has some of the most unique water-front property in St. Augustine. Here you will find homes with incredible views that may include: historic downtown, the intra-coastal waterway, the ocean as viewed through the St. Augustine inlet, and the northern tip of Anastasia State Park as viewed over Salt Run. It is a popular area because of its convenient proximity to both historic downtown and to St. Augustine beaches. Prices in Davis Shores may range from $150,000-$250,000 for a modest cottage to multi-million dollar water-front estate homes priced at $1,000,000 to over $4,000,000.
