Mediterranean estate home offers upscale beach living


RE/MAX Specialists

In the middle of a July summer in Northeast Florida, locals and residents new to the area all want to do the same thing: relax and cool off on the beautiful beaches of the Atlantic Ocean!

With a private community boardwalk to beach access, Ponte Vedra by the Sea is one of the most desirable and sought after communities in Ponte Vedra Beach. East of A1A, this neighborhood provides optimum proximity to the beach, with either adjacent public beach access or to the five-star Ponte Vedra Lodge & Club.

500 South Sea Lake Lane is located within the gated Estates section of Ponte Vedra by the Sea on one of the largest, private waterfront lots. Situated on the long view of the lagoon, you can relax in your pool, spa, lanai and multiple balconies, enjoying ocean breezes and the sounds of the Atlantic. Take in the sun on the large pavered deck, unwind with spa jets, or swim laps in your oversized 38-foot pool. With a large driveway and inviting curb appeal, this custom-built Mediterranean home has morethan 4,800 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and a large upstairs bonus room, plus two additional upstairs lofts.

The flexible floor plan and multiple living/entertaining spaces make this a great home for a variety of families. In addition to the breathtaking views, the home is finished with designer details, including hardwood flooring, a chef’s kitchen with wood cabinets, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances including double ovens, gas cooking and a chimney hood. The adjoining family room with a two-story coffered ceiling affords views of the pool and lagoon, and provides the perfect amount of natural light. The formal living room also opens to the lanai and pool and is equipped with a full entertainer’s bar, including cabinets with wine storage, wine fridge and ice maker.

The first floor expansive master suite opens to its own private lanai along the pool and offers wonderful water views. The custom-finished master bathroom features wood cabinets, premium granite, vessel sinks with waterfall faucets, a large garden tub and walk-in shower with dual showerheads. Another guest bedroom, full bathroom, plus an exterior pool bath are on the first floor as well.

Enter the upstairs portion of the home from either the elegant wood foyer staircase or sisal carpeted family room stairs. The second floor holds 3 large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a large bonus/family room, a loft area and loft office space. All bedrooms have private en suite bathrooms, with one bedroom as a second master. Two of the bedrooms also open to balconies overlooking the pool and lagoon. The third upstairs bathroom has been completely renovated with the current coastal design trends and premium finishes of Carrera marble, white shaker style cabinets and chrome fixtures.

Everything about the home is completely custom – from the quality construction with Spanish tile roof and concrete block construction to beautifully designed kitchen and bathrooms, extensive moldings, tray ceilings, sisal carpeting in the upstairs, balconies, finished closets, extensive storage, central vacuum and walk-in wine room, plus a three-car garage. Combined with the best lot in the community, on a cul-de-sac street and across from the community park, this home will truly provide “the beach life” in an upscale fashion!
