You will be struck from the moment you arrive at this iconic beachside property on Duval Dr, one Jacksonville's most treasured corridors located in quaint, friendly S Jacksonville Beach. Featuring interior public and private spaces which blend seamlessly with a stunning outdoor oasis, this sleek modern residence is a perfect setting for living, playing, lounging and entertaining! Located directly across the street from the beach, the expanse of this 6184 sf home (occupying the entire slice of land between Duval Dr and Ponte Vedra Blvd) sets it apart from the other fine properties in the area. Built in 2004 and recently renovated by current owners to included full remodel and expansion, the residence features wide open family/living and dining areas, a spa-inspired master retreat which features a large sun splashed bedroom with ocean views & full gym (could be den/nursery...), 4 additional bedrooms (2 ensuite and 2 with shared bath), an amazing children's play room, and a generous office. The focal point of nearly every room of this grand residence is the private courtyard and pool setting which resembles a glorious private tropical island compound. The enormous and southern-exposed lush green lawn provides for bocci-filled afternoons and the sparkling pool, designed for sun most all day, is primed for a refreshing swim. Two south side balconies offer a super perch for enjoying ocean views & breezes or simply soaking up the rays! The modern architecture lends itself to high design AND/OR barefoot beach living. Floor to ceiling windows and doors allow for maximum natural light while clean interiors and white finishes create a serene aesthetic and accentuate hits of colorful wall art. It is hard to imagine a more perfect abode for the buyer seeking privacy amidst the splendor of the sun and sea within close proximity to our buzzy neighboring beach enclaves and all the amenities that our fine city has to offer.
