PART I GENERAL


Name of structure


Present owner


Present occupant


The Don Josepfdel Toro House, 101 Charlotte
Street, St. Augustine, St. Johns County,
Florida.

Mrs X. ld Snow, 44 Bay Street, St.
Augustine, Florida.

Temporarily vacant.


Present uses


Garage and rentable apartment.


Number of stories

General layout


Simple 1 story structure in shape of shallow
U.


Type of wall construction (gen.)


Condition of fabrics


Significance and merits


Arohitecturals




Historical


Generally maintained; arches of former loggia
partly ruinous.



Despite alterations over the years, this build-
ing is probably the best existing example of a
St. Augustine house of the First Spanish Period.
The detail on the arches in the rear is unique
in St. Augustine.

Although the correlation of the existing plan
with the sketch plan on the Mariano de la
]Roue !ap of 1788 (see Location Plan, Sheet
Sof Drawings and Historical Note below) is not
exact, it is sufficiently close to warrant the
assumption that the basic fabric is the same.
That there was a house on the lot at the time
of the Spanish evacuation in 1763 is reasonably
certain although nothing is known about its
plan. The owner states that in the course of
excavation for a well several tabby floors were
encountered in the vicinity of the present
structure.
