Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Originally from Miami, in 2006 the owner's purchased this 5.5 acre oak and palm studded property, which projects itself into the Florida State Savannah Preserve, as a way to recapture the feeling of "Old Florida". The owner's trails through the property reveal stunning oak and palm hammocks and majestic live oaks. In 2009 the owner's completed construction of a  Key West style home in the back of the property, on the shore of Henderson Pond, and made plans to restore the "Goodbread" cottage which was the original family home built on the property in 1941.  Using Brazilian hardwoods, travertine marble, and granite countertops, the owner's completely restored and renovated this wonderful cottage which has had it's place in Jensen Beach history. Envisioned as a guest house to compliment the main home, the owners applied the same standards and style, completing restoration in 2011. Restored to accommodate the owner's personal guests,  vacationers will feel that they are truly welcome. Privacy is maintained as the owner's home is unobservable through the palms and oaks, however the owners are available to meet any needs that arise.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Vacationing adults and small families looking for an affordable "Old Florida Experience", will appreciate the natural beauty and convenience of this rare location in Jensen Beach. Smoking not permitted. Crib available. Pets allowed with pet deposit.
