of administraLion of estate of Nicholas Sanchez, a minor, deceased,
is the will of Jose E. Sanchez citing that Jose E. Sanchez was the

San Carlos House

son of Nicholas Sanchez and Malena Juaneda; married Camilla Canova
and also had a son named Nicholas.

This property later was acquired by Venancio Sanchez, and in 1885
the County Tax List shows title in name of W. J. Sanches, who in
1925 sold to the present owners, Mary and Gertrude Montgomery, this
recorded in
1925 March 28 Deed Book a549 p. 206 at lot 7, block 15 for $7500.00,
Sanchez to Montgomery.

The deeds of the later period do not specify two houses on this lot
but at the time of purchase by the Montgomery sisters there was an
old wooden house, with overhanging balcony, in very bad condition,
which has since been repaired and given an outside stucco finish to
preserve it, also the old coquina house, with very thick solid
coquina walls, large beams of solid mohogany, wooden pegs being used.
This house is also built directly on the street in typical old
Spanish style of architecture.

In the garden in rear of house is a coquina well that had at some
time been Silled in, but ainoe the purchase by the Montgomery
sisters, has been entirely cleared of the trash and sand which filled
it, and makes an interesting addition to a very lovely garden.
