The building is on the Department of Interior National Register of Historic Places.

Like a fine work of art, Casa Rodriguez at 52 St. George St. in St. Augustine will be auctioned on Thursday, Feb. 20, at 11 a.m. at the property site.

Instead of listing it for sale, owner Julie Jurecko decided to auction the historic property to the highest bidder at an absolute auction.

Great Expectations Realty, owned by Jena Baker-Dennis, is holding the auction.

Baker-Dennis explained the absolute auction allows the owner to complete the sale within 30 days rather than waiting for a buyer to complete a traditional purchase.

Jurecko wants to sell the property because she is retiring, Baker-Dennis said.
