South Ponte Vedra Beach house description

Almost Heaven is a casual oceanfront 3 bedroom 2 bath home. Located in the oceanfront community of South Ponte Vedra Beach, between Jacksonville and St. Augustine, it is situated in a private area of single family homes (no high rises or high traffic here!)! It is serene and quiet....yet the house is just 5 miles from historic St. Augustine and 15 miles from posh Ponte Vedra. From the moment you enter Almost Heaven, you feel the warmth of the Florida sunshine, and you know you are at home. The living room has expansive views of the dunes, and Atlantic Ocean. The oceanfront master bedroom features a private bathroom, walk-in closet, and new plasma TV. The kitchen opens to a dining area with seating for six, plus two more at the breakfast bar. The multi-level deck features a gazebo, private beach walkway, and an elevated lookout deck that offers 360º views. You will love this house!


The kitchen opens up to a cozy dining area with seating for 6. There are two bar stools at the breakfast bar pass-through for additional guests. The kitchen is fully furnished so you can prepare your favorite meals just like home. There are several grocery stores in St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra. There is a gas station/convenience store about 2 miles north of the house where you can find most daily items.

The 2-sided fireplace can be enjoyed by all from the living room on one side, and the den on the other side. The living room features a new plasma TV, DVD player, and stereo to keep everyone entertained and up to date while on vacation. Books and board games are provided for the enjoyment of both young and old. There is a two-car garage with automatic door opener to park your vehicles. There is additional parking for 2 more cars on the driveway.

The master bedroom features a cozy queen bed, loaded with fluffy pillows and snuggly comforters. There is a wall-mounted plasma TV with cable channels for your enjoyment. The master bathroom has a spacious walk-in shower and his and her sinks. There is a large walk-in closet for all of your belongings.

The 2nd bedroom is decorated with warm colors and has an inviting double bed. There is a closet and dresser for all of your personal items. This bedroom shares a full bathroom with the 3rd bedroom.

The 3rd bedroom is perfect for kids, teens, or those who prefer seperate beds. There is a twin bed and a double bed with a pull out trundle. With the trundle, this bedroom sleeps 3 adults or 4 children.

The den has a daybed that sleeps 1 additional guest.

The rear deck is the perfect place for outdoor socializing. It has plenty of lounging furniture for everyone to get a good tan. If you want to enjoy outside, but stay out of the sun, you'll love the covered gazebo. The elevated overlook deck offers 360º views of the ocean and the intracoastal waterway. There are plenty of beach chairs to take to the beach.
