As we move from spring into summer, it is becoming apparent the warm weather is being accompanied by a movement of a different kind. Real estate in the Greater Jacksonville area is getting hotter by the day.
According to a recent Coldwell Banker blog, “Trulia names Jacksonville the hottest real estate market in the country for its impressive population growth, long-term economic stability plus great schools, fantastic weather and proximity to the ocean.” Coastal Living taps our area “as the hottest seaside market, where buyers can purchase their dream home coastal escape.”
Oceanfront sales in Ponte Vedra are proof. We have sold or have currently under contract nine oceanfront homes since January. The property that’s turning heads right now is 723 Ponte Vedra Blvd. The quality of construction and the attention to detail in this oceanfront estate is testament to its popularity. Built just three years ago, this magnificent home nearly qualifies as new construction.
Love is in the details from ceiling to floor. It offers a pleasing touch of antiquity (an antique mantle from Yale University) to European designed whispering bells lighting.
The kitchen is simply stunning and immense. It effortlessly combines a coastal theme with commercial and European design. There’s a certain upscale European feeling with beamed and tongue and groove wood ceilings. The centerpiece is the oversized island with a white quartz top by Cesarstone that seats 10. The Bertazzoni range was imported from Italy. Even the cabinets are a marvel. They are all glass painted from the inside and topped by yards of stainless steel, and the doors to the huge pantry are Belgian from the 1700s. The faux-painted white oak hardwood floors throughout are coated with a special sealant to repel scratches.
Nearly every room in this home has an expansive oceanfront view. Open the doors and the salt-scented sea breeze fills the house. Upstairs, there’s a special room for little ones. Bunk beds that sleep 12 were cleverly built into the décor. Outside is an oceanfront paradise with a covered lanai, a large pool with a tanning ledge, fountains, LED lights and a spa that seats 12 people.
Overall, the house features six bedrooms, five-and-a-half baths and 5,041 square feet on a 100-foot oceanfront lot with a private beach walkover.
This property is represented by Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty, listed by Kim Martin-Fisher and Jennifer Martin Faulkner and offered at $5,925,000.
