Timeless elegance highlights oceanfront Ponte Vedra Beach home


A rare find with 223 feet of ocean frontage, this magnificent estate home rises over the dunes on a grand 2 ½ acres. The timeless design features showcase the lush setting of ocean shoreline, tropical flora, marine life, and outdoor and indoor entertaining areas. Meticulously maintained, it offers 10,284 heated/cooled square feet, 6 bedrooms with en suites, a pool bath, upstairs and downstairs powder rooms and plenty of gathering spaces – plus a four-car garage and circular motor court!

The two-story foyer with 7-foot crystal chandelier and detailed crown molding opens through Roman columns to a generous formal living room with inviting ocean views, 12-foot ceilings and gas fireplace. A separate bar area leads to a stunning great room and open, gourmet kitchen with everything needed to fashion a world class feast.

The downstairs is rounded out with a custom-designed craft room overlooking the pool, freehand artist painted dining room, cherry wood-paneled office, master retreat, guest suite and laundry. Upstairs, features four more bedrooms, a game room with bar area and additional family room. Wrap-around balconies, covered and open terraces and a private beach walkover take advantage of the fabulous oceanfront location.

The most eye-catching feature of the home is the lavish poolside oasis created with 800,000 pounds of limestone boulders to support a 45-foot jetted slide, waterfall and cave hideaway for the toys. A diving board, spa, summer kitchen and pool deck for sunning or sipping margaritas offer the ultimate resort getaway right at home.

And the updated technology is a treat! Ports for iPod Touches are installed in the walls of many rooms throughout the home. They are programmed to control surround sound from anywhere in the house but can be programmed for many other functions. And with minimum equipment and wiring changes, almost endless functions can be expanded for amazing ease and use of the home that match today’s technologically advanced generation.

This entire estate is truly a joy to be in – from the inviting feel of timeless design features, to the multi-functional entertaining or family areas, to the advantageous beach location. And the Ponte Vedra Beach location, with A-rated schools and a plethora of activities, creates the perfect environment for raising a family. What a great combination!
