120 DANCING HORST DRIVE
This special home was built in 2007 by one of my favorite (now retired) custom builders and European craftsman, Giulio Lancia. The stone exterior was laid by European masons. The home “lays easy on the land,” beautifully nestled within mature hardwoods and backing to Pellicer Creek.
The home itself is situated on a 2.75-acre parcel, with an additional 2.08-acre parcel across the road suitable for a paddock, workshop or horse or car barn.
The home’s two-car garage and 3,754 air conditioned living area wrap around a courtyard featuring a pool, spa and custom-built waterfall, providing a total footprint of over 7,000 square feet of luxury living.
POOL, SPA AND WATERFALL
The quality of construction in this home is unparalleled, featuring 10-foot ceilings, crown molding and 8-foot solid wood doors. Hardwood floors are found in the kitchen, nook, dining, entry, hallway and great room areas. All corners, both concave and convex, have been intentionally rounded to present a soft and elegant appearance. Top of the line quality plantation shutters throughout further help to create a warm and friendly atmosphere.

The gourmet kitchen features custom cabinets, granite tops, an island and two sinks. The courtyard area includes a summer kitchen.
There is a commercial grade fire prevention sprinkler system throughout. There is a 16,000-watt automatic rollover/rollback generator to provide most of the home with power in case of a power outage. The home features dual heating and cooling zones. Wooded acreage provides privacy. A gated entrance adds security.
Double Bridges is an equestrian community. It includes a community covered riding arena with a special soil composition geared specifically for Dressage performance. There are four community-owned pastures of five acres each with running water and run in sheds. The home’s lot across the street backs directly to one of the pastures. A maintained riding path encircles Double Bridge’s 130+ acres.
Double Bridges is juxtaposed between St. Augustine, North America’s oldest continuously occupied city and Palm Coast, which recently celebrated its 15th year as a city. Atlantic Ocean beaches are only seven miles away. Nearby Interstate 95 offers easy access to Orlando and Jacksonville. Flagler County’s Princess Place and the Florida Agriculture Museum are close by.
