The Scroggin Home
Holiday Décor by Lorie Ford

Built in 1903 by harbor pilot George A. Latham, this home features rare restored, double-galleried, wrap-around porches with heart of pine floors and a renovated kitchen. Lynn and Jeff Scroggin have lived in the home since 2018 which was once used as a duplex with a unit on each floor accessed by an outside staircase. They have incorporated a lighthouse motif decor which highlights the original owner’s family who worked for three generations at the Amelia Island Lighthouse.


The Gallardo Home
Holiday Décor by Diane LaPatra

This single-story cottage was built in 1948 and then rebuilt in 2004 with the exception of the front and side walls. The renovation retained the original charming flavor on the exterior while modernizing and enlarging the inside. One of the highlights of this home are the gardens which include two cactus gardens, tropical plants and a small pond with a shade garden. In early 2020, a small greenhouse was completed which houses orchids and begonias and a variety of ongoing experiments.


The Hamm Home
Holiday Décor by Laura Giordano

This lovely new addition to the historic district was built by the Hamms who have been coming to Fernandina Beach for several years and decided to make this their forever home. They love the friendly and casual atmosphere and wanted to be near downtown and the waterfront. As fate would have it, they found the perfect lot at 4th and Elm where their home, Joya de la Isla, now sits. This craftsman style house was designed to blend into the character of the neighborhood and its natural surroundings. They have also created a delightful outdoor space which reflects their love of nature and gardening. They couldn’t be more pleased with their decision and are excited to share their home with the community and their new neighbors this year on the Holiday Home Tour.


The Mateer Home
Holiday Décor by Amber Marvin

The Mateers are both artists and avid art collectors. Their home is decorated with a vast collection of art representing everything from the abstract to animation and includes prints by Andy Warhol, Peter Max, and Joan Miro. Local artists are also featured including William Maurer, James Draper, Sandra Baker-Hinton, and Joe Winston. This not to be missed townhome is located next to City Hall and showcases one of the newest additions to the vibrant historic district.


The Schultz Home
Holiday Décor by Sharon Haffey

Called “The Captain’s Rest,” the location for this home was chosen for its close proximity to downtown. The owners are avid foodies who love to cook and entertain, which influenced the first floor features of a wine cellar, wet bar with a river sink (designed after an oyster on the half shell), and open floor plan. With the proximity to the Intracoastal Waterway they decided to add the third floor “observation lounge” complete with a coffee bar and balcony. The view looking out on the waterway gives the house a modern coastal captain’s appeal.
