              OCEAN OCEAN OCEAN!!! THE BEAUTIFUL ATLANTIC OCEAN IS STEPS AWAY FROM OUR HOME!!!

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1998

              About the owner: I grew up in Atlanta and have been visiting the island all my life! It is still as pristine as it was all those years ago! The memories are all wonderful and a lot of the island and the establishments are still here!!! My whole family visits again and again! We all can't get enough of our home and the island!!!

              Why the Owner Chose Fernandina Shores:
              It spoke to us as soon as we walked in! It needed a lot of TLC but there is something wonderful and calming about this lovely home! Not to mention, that is SO VERY CLOSE to the ocean!!! Our home is 'one of a kind' and never disappoints!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              The simplicity and the views and the possibilities made us fall in love with our home! We made all those dreams come true when we renovated our home roof to sand! We kept the integrity of our home; keeping the wood ceiling, walls and floors and bringing them back to their original beauty and added the modern conveniences. The views are magnificent everywhere in our home! The outside decks are breath taking! It's an incredible home and we love sharing it!!!
