Jacksonville house description

We are very excited about sharing our beautiful home with your family and friends! Gorgeous hardwood flooring welcomes you behind 2 mahogany front doors that open into our stunning two story great room with it's cozy contemporary couch and chairs! You all will love how the kitchen is wide open to the great room. It's porcelain counters, large maple cabinets and stainless steel appliances make cooking and entertaining a joy! The pool bath is adjacent to the kitchen and offers an exterior door out to the pool. Spacious, comfortable and sexy describe the downstairs master suite with it's soft king sized bed and open riverfront view. Seperate vanities, a large walk around shower and 6 ft. Jaccuzzi tub make the master bathroom a favorite place! Travertine steps and customized iron railing line the stairs and bridge area above the great room. Three large bedrooms with queen beds are upstairs as is the game room with it's pool table and walk in closet full of games. The balcony is located between the game room and a bedroom on the back of our home and all have a mile long views! Siting on the balcony or the porch beneath and watching the dolphins 'surf' the wave surge created by the large ships that travel past our home is one of our families favorite things to do here!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: Steve and Beth Kicklighter are the proud owners of this home! Steve designed and built the home in 2001. Beth and Steve were married in 2008 and share 5 grown children. They own Kicklighter Auto Sales.

                  Why the Owner Chose Jacksonville:
                  There is always something to see here! Nature is overwelmingly abundant! Besides the afore mentioned dolphins we have seen alligators,manitees and more birds than you could name! watching the massive ships go right by is so exciting, especially the cruise ships! once we saw an elephant inside a cargo ship! But the fishing has been a constant source of entertainment. However you'd need a few hours to hear SOME of our stories! We hope you enjoy the many 'fish pictures' in our home.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Boating to Waterfront Restaurants,fishing,ship watching,swiming,biking,siting around an open fire and nature watching is a combination of activities unique to our home!
