Located on a private cul-de-sac lined with moss-laden oak trees, the epitome of the South. Such a serene setting evokes feelings of calm and solitude but that is easily transformed into an entertainer's dream in this spectacular 5 bed, 5 bath riverfront home. A horseshoe drive and manicured gardens frame this solid brick home that was custom built and has been meticulously maintained by the original owners. The huge master suite is on the ground floor, bathroom has massive jacuzzi tub, walk in shower and 2 walk in closets. The remodeled kitchen with granite and travertine tile is the center of the open floor plan. All the rooms take advantage of the stunning pool and river views. Custom murals cap the 19' ceilings in the living room and huge windows along the rear of the home drench... the interior in natural light. The property is elevated enough to avoid water surges and there is a built-in generator for convenience. The same family who built this house in 1998 has lived here ever since, enjoying all the milestones of life in this home. The kitchen is the center of every gathering and that is why the kitchen is positioned in the middle of the home. The cook is able to enjoy the views of the pool and the expansive St John's River while preparing a meal, as well as watching the children play in the spacious adjoining family room. The river has many moods and watching a golden sunrise, a warm red sunset or a full moon's reflection turning the water silver are simple pleasures they don't take for granted. Sitting on the dock on the 4th of July or New Year's Eve is like having a private fireworks show as the sky lights up with surrounding celebrations. The river is such a big part of life in this home, and since it was built in 1998 there has never been a flood, or even the threat of water intrusion, despite the many storms endured. This home is made for large family gatherings and many parties have been held here, yes, a hundred people can gather quite comfortably! On Prom night all the kids came over with their parents to take pictures by the river, the gardens, and the staircase is perfect to fit everyone in for a group shot. The dock sits at the end of a long boardwalk (a safety rail was built for smaller children and elderly parents' comfort). It's so quiet out there it's easy to de-stress after a busy day, in the solitude of the river. By the way, the fishing is great from the dock so rods and lures should be kept on hand. Many visitors from overseas have come to stay at this home and they still talk about their jet ski rides on the river, late-night pool parties, and sleepovers on the dock. With four bedrooms positioned upstairs, guests enjoy privacy and the comfort of being non-intrusive to their hosts. This is the end of an era. Being so family-oriented, the owners want to live closer to their grandchildren, to be part of their everyday lives. So, it's time for another owner to make some new memories. Just think about what you do on vacation. You spend time with loved ones, take a leisurely pace, enjoy time outdoors or in nature, and slow down to enjoy the little things. This is easy to achieve out here. Every day is like being on vacation in such an enchanting environment.
