GreenPointe Communities hosts preview of new model home at EvenTide in Ponte Vedra Beach


More than 200 guests recently enjoyed an exclusive VIP preview celebrating a new model home at EvenTide in Ponte Vedra Beach. 

In addition to hors d’oeuvres, libations and an exhibition of original artwork by local artist Joan Carver, guests at the March 21 event were among the first to tour the Tidewater showcase home by Arthur Rutenberg Homes by Mark Refosco. The event was hosted by GreenPointe Communities, the developer of EvenTide. 

“We appreciate everyone who attended our VIP celebration and shared their enthusiasm for EvenTide’s magnificent new model home,” said Mike Taylor, North Florida regional president at GreenPointe Communities. “As the Tidewater demonstrates, EvenTide offers a rare opportunity to build an expertly crafted and innovatively designed new custom home just steps from the ocean in Ponte Vedra Beach.”  

Designed exclusively for EvenTide, the Tidewater displays a West Indies-style exterior and a beachy, coastal color palette of white, silver blues and driftwood tones. The 5,270-square-foot home presents stylishly appointed interiors, impressive outdoor living spaces, luxury finishes and state-of-the-art features. 

“The Tidewater exudes a fresh sophistication that is elegant and comfortably inviting,” said Angie Thomas, interior designer with Arthur Rutenberg Homes, Inc. “I accomplished this by using modern lines, textures, mixes of metals and contemporary accents. The combination of the brick fireplace, the waterfall dining table and driftwood accents are among the details that together give this home a harmonious ambiance.”

The foyer of the Tidewater flows into a living and entertaining area that opens to a lanai leading to a pool deck and patio area overlooking the lake. A wall of stackable sliding glass doors slip away to seamlessly blend the home’s indoor and outdoor living spaces. 

Complementing the great room is an adjoining island kitchen and casual dining area, with the large center island offering plenty of seating. The master suite opens to the pool deck, and the master bath features a freestanding tub. A guest suite, which could be used for a home office, playroom or craft room, is positioned on the opposite side of the home. 

Upstairs, there are three additional bedrooms and a bonus room that also blurs the lines between inside and out. Its stackable sliding glass doors open to a covered balcony overlooking the lake.

Located in a coastal area along Ponte Vedra Boulevard, with the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Guana River to the west, EvenTide is an intimate enclave planned for 23 luxury homes that embrace Ponte Vedra Beach-style living. The community’s estate-sized home sites range in size from approximately one-third acre to more than one acre. Home and lot packages are priced from $1.5 million. EvenTide homebuyers have the opportunity to build a home with lake or preserve views that comes with its own private, gated access to the beach.  

Home builders Arthur Rutenberg Homes by Mark Refosco, Glenn Layton Homes and Heritage Homes will create and construct the home designs to meet the needs of every lifestyle. Buyers may choose to work with one of EvenTide’s preferred builders or are welcome to engage with their own builder to bring their home vision to reality.

EvenTide residents enjoy access to the St. Johns County School District, and the community is zoned for A-rated public schools. EvenTide is within minutes of elite clubs, golf courses, specialty boutiques and dining destinations with easy access to Jacksonville, St. Augustine and major employment centers. 

The Tidewater model is open daily and by appointment. For more information about EvenTide and a personal tour, call (904) 962-7477 or visit
