Amelia Island Resorts house description


BRIGHT, HAPPY, LOTS OF NATURAL LIGHT. 'There's something about this house that has good vibes' is a comment we have received from previous guests. We are certain you will agree when you stay here. We built this house a few years ago on a very quite cul de sac with every amenity that we wanted in our dream beach home. We came here to live with nature and found a piece of paradise like no other place on earth.

This home is one of the few free standing homes in the Plantation with its OWN PRIVATE POOL. Our house is located on the quiet side of the Plantation with very little traffic and no noise. It's an easy scenic seven minute walk or a two minute ride in your very own golf cart to a small parking pad right on the beach side.

The beautiful Ritz Carlton is less than five minutes away.

This is the PERFECT family house(toddler alarms on all doors). All main rooms on the lower level of the Nantucket-style house face the pool, which provides a calm oasis with sounds of the pool's waterfall right outside the doors. It is also perfect in the winter for those who want to escape the cold of our northern neighbors. A gas fireplace in the living room provides a homey ambiance. One will find a canopy of live oaks throughout the entire plantation.

The home, tastefully furnished and designed by the owner/interior designer for comfort to create the perfect vacation environment, includes approximately 2,800 SF with 3 bedrooms (all with new flat screen TVs) and 4 full bathrooms; master bedroom on the first floor with a king bed, new flat screen TV, and a large walk-in closet with iron and built-in ironing board; master bathroom with dual vanities, soaking tub and large separate shower (hair dryers in all baths are provided).

The 2nd bedroom on 2nd floor has two double beds and its own separate bathroom; the 3rd bedroom on second floor has twin beds and its own separate bathroom.

The living room, which overlooks the pool, has a new 42' flat screen television with a surround sound system. The study/media room with new flat screen tv also overlooks the pool and has an adjacent full bath. The study, if needed, has an inflatable bed which can be used as a 4th bedroom. Speakers provide whole house sound including speakers on the lanai and around the pool. The fully equipped well stocked gourmet kitchen includes an extensive spice drawer,crock pot, blender and two coffee makers. The dining room houses a large table that seats 8 people. The large laundry room includes a washer, dryer and laundry sink. There is also a separate outdoor shower and the pool is totally secluded by a tall privacy fence.

Sit on the lanai, relax in the hammock in the arbor or dine poolside by the lighted pool while listening to the soothing sounds of music and the waterfall.

On the opposite side of the house close to the kitchen is another private courtyard for grilling on the gas grill.

All linens and beach towels are included.

Also provided are a strap-in highchair / booster seat, & pac and play. Extremely large master closet off master bedroom can accommodate the pac and play or a crib.

THREE NEW CRUISER BIKES, child's bike, big wheel, scooter, beach chairs, beach umbrella, boogey boards, children's sand and pool toys are there for your enjoyment.

NEW GOLF CART has been added.

2 KAYAKS, oars and life vests have also been added for your convenience and enjoyment on Red Maple Lake (just a few yards from the house) and at Walker's Landing.

Amelia Island has recently built a fabulous new 'family bike path' which stretches for miles and miles in both directions taking you to the bridge. Should you need more bikes than we provide, extra bikes are available for rent and delivery.

FREE HIGH SPEED WIRELESS INTERNET is available throughout the entire house. Two separate working desks are for your convenience, one in rear hall and another in the study which may be closed off for privacy.

A new addition to the Plantation is a miniature golf course. Segway tours are available (really fun!). Pamper yourself at the Spa, have lunch and ice cream by the pond at Marche Burrett, enjoy the new Pizzeria, nature center, wonderful shopping and PLAE--our favorite restaurant...all in the Village within walking distance. The newly renovated Veranda restaurant is two blocks from the house.

Car: Recommended

Located in the lovely area of Heron Oaks, one can enjoy a beautiful five-minute walk over Red Maple Lake to the ocean. Biking, swimming in our pool, scenic walks, viewing wild life, sunsets and kayaking at Walker's Landing are all part of a wonderful, relaxing vacation within the Plantation. The Spa, the restaurants, and numerous shops are all available within walking distance. Drive a few minutes to downtown Fernandina and view the boats in the harbor, have lunch at Brett's on the water and stroll the unique town with its quaint shops and more excellent restaurants.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are an active couple who live in Athens,Georgia. Kim is an attorney and Sheryl is an interior designer. We have two children, Courtney who is married to Jason, an attorney in Atlanta, and Chad who also lives in Athens. We have a precious seven year old grandson and a two year old granddaughter. We adore Amelia Island but are not able to get there as much as we would like; therefore, we would like to share our comfortable house with you.

Why the Owner Chose Amelia Island Resorts:
We visited Amelia many times before we built our home. We have both always wanted a pool, which we were able to have. This is a fabulous family house where we enjoy special times and holidays with our children and grandchildren and also many friends. We are unable to get to Amelia as much as we love it; therefore, we would like to share it with others and hope they enjoy it as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The peace and quiet of our area and the soothing sound of the waterfall at the pool are a few things we really enjoy. We love to be able to walk to the beach and the Village. Biking and watching sunsets at Walker's Landing are also very enjoyable. Actually, there is nothing we don't enjoy at Amelia!!
