Private Homes house description

Sunnyside Beach House is a tastefully appointed 3800 square foot ocean front property with luxurious amentias, granite countertops and travertine floors throughout. There are 4 plus bedrooms with special areas for children and babies and an optional bedroom in the lower level. This elegant, newly remodeled and updated home showcases a large covered patio and two large terraces, each offering unparallel ocean views and your own private boardwalk that leads to a gorgeous beach.

After a day on the beach, you can utilize the outdoor shower, perfect for washing off the sand and the lovely lawns offer plenty of room for children and pets to play.

The home has four comfortable bedrooms featuring a luxurious ensuite master with a large double shower and a separate soaking tub along with a vanity area and his/her sinks. You will sleep like a dream in the spacious master suite complete with a large king bed, 750 thread count sheets and a gel/memory foam bed. The master has a lovely sitting area with a daybed, comfy chair, and computer desk. A wall mounted flat screen HD TV and large walk in closet with cabinetry make the room complete. The private master suite terrace has spectacular ocean views, perfect for your morning beverage.

The third floor front of the home offers a balcony that overlooks the lush green Guana Nature Preserve as well as a water view. This secondary master suite features a king bed that can be converted into two twin beds. This bedroom also features its own private bath, vanity/desk, large closet, blow dryer, and flat screen TV.

On the main level (2nd floor) is the great room with 12 floor to ceiling windows that showcase amazing ocean views. A large flat screen HD TV is visible from every seat. A dining room and breakfast nook offer plenty of seating and the spacious modern chefs kitchen has ocean views and is completely furnished with small appliances, tableware, flatware, cookware, and outdoor melamine. Appliances include coffee maker, toaster, blender, crock-pot and many more. A half bath completes this fantastic gathering space.

The lower level gathering area has a large HD TV, a rolling mini bar cart and a very comfortable sofa that converts to a memory foam queen bed. The outdoor covered patio features plenty of seating and a gorgeous ocean view amidst a lush lawn and is steps away from your private boardwalk and the beach.

The first flour is also appointed with two bedrooms, one with a tufted upholstered queen bed, an ocean view and is steps away from a large shared bathroom.

                      Sunnyside is a newly updated and luxuriously furnished elegant home on a very private lot with panoramic oceanfront views.

                      Located in South Ponte Vedra Beach south of between Ponte Vedra, home of the TPC Sawgrass Golf Tournament and north of St. Augustine, the oldest US city, and to the east oceanfront along the beautiful Atlantic Ocean and to the west and unobstructed view of the Guana Nature Preserve and River this property offers something for everyone.

                      Shopping at cute boutiques, upscale outlet stores, surf shops, and chain stores are all close by. World Golf Village and Sawgrass offer top notch golf and there are many locations nearby for tennis.

                      The nature preserve has kayaking and other ecological adventures and education. All water sports are available either on the ocean, the intercoastal or a nearby lake. From the old St. Augustine fort, Ripleys Believe it or Not, and Ponce de Leon's Fountain of Youth, St. Augustine offers much sight-seeing either on foot, bike, or trolley. Nearby Vilano Beach is one of the few beaches left that you can drive on which is a unique experience.

                      To the north, nearby Jacksonville offers a children's museum, the zoo, the Cumner Art Museum and Gardens, home of the Jaguars, and a beautiful riverfront walk with Friendship Fountain and several venues for arts and entertainment. The piers in Jacksonville and St. Augustine have fishing and the town squares have movies or music on most weekends.

                      To the south, Marineland is a must visit. Nearby is an Alligator farm and other zoolocial and wildlife centers. Kennedy Space Center and Cocoa Beach are 90 minutes south. Mt Dora and Micanopy beckon with antique shopping and quaint small town charm. And, not to be missed, Orlando and theme parks are less than 2 hours west! Disney, Seaworld, and Universal Studios await with magical adventures!

                      A typical day could include an early morning walk enjoying the sunrise and shell collecting, followed by swimming or paddleboarding. Then, head into St. Augustine for some shopping or sight-seeing and shrimp for lunch at O'Steen's (bring cash as they don't take credit cards!), then take a drive along the beach and people watch followed by a snack at Yocool, the yummiest frozen yogurt around (my favorite is coconut with frest strawberries!), have a nap outside and then head to Cap's on the Water (Intercoastal) for dinner (super fun for kids, they have these cool trees they can climb on) while you watch the sunset and the boats go by. Or, tour St. Augustine and have a delicious dinner at Harry's and hear the history of its ghosts. You can head into Ponte Vedra and have a relaxing spa day at the Ponte Vedra Spa, check out the Jax Beach pier, watch the surfers and have dinner at Barbara Jean's--don't forget to order the chocolate stuff ( yes, it is really called that!) or stay in Jax Beach and eat at Salt Life.

                      There is an abundance of camps and fun ideas for kids at the Jax4Kids website as well as surfing and paddleboard instructors available from the local surf shops. St. Augustine city is lit up from Dec to Jan 31st and there are many festivals from Amelia Island down to St. Augustine. Shrimp fest, the Jazz Festival, the Air Show, fireworks, and surfing competitions are just a few. One of the most fun pastimes is collecting shark teeth--I have a friend who found over 200 in under 2 hours!

                      Our beautiful home has travertine floors, spectacular ocean views, and every amenity. We are child friendly, small dog friendly, and can sleep 12 comfortably and privately. You can truly get away from it all on our secluded and tranquil beach and city conveniences are 10 minutes away. Come relax, renew, and refresh in our soothing and peaceful home. Or, come play, explore, and discover something exciting and new in this beautiful area.

                      North Florida has so much to offer and is very friendly. Come stay with us and you won't want to leave!

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: We are Steve and Tracy. We both grew up in thoroughbred country... Kentucky. After marriage and 4 years of service in the Air Force, we settled back in Kentucky to raise our family. As our older children left the nest, we moved to Florida. We have always loved the beach, and our dream came true when we moved to beautiful Ponte Vedra Beach in 2005. We are so blessed to have the kindest neighbors, a friendly city, and amazing beaches. There is always something fun to do and we are so content here.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      While we live in nearby Ponte Vedra Beach, we chose this property because we always have wanted to live right on the ocean and this home is sooooo beautiful and well built that we just couldn't pass it up! We have 2 daughters still in school so we are staying in our neighborhood with close proximity to their schools and activities, but plan to visit our beach house often! We love to entertain and have friends and family that live all over the country and come visit us often and we really enjoy treating them to a bed and breakfast experience. So, this is just an extension of our southern hospitality!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The stunning views from all three floors and the clean and classic design is so inviting. We just feel calm and our stress just melts away when we are there. It is just pure bliss waking up to the sound of the waves rolling in. With the Guana across the street and only private homes around us, our home is very private and still close to shopping, groceries, gas and any other needs or activities. The charming town of Vilano Beach and the nature preserve offer up access to many adventures and are another reason we love the location of our home. The appointments in this home are upscale and we feel at home there. It has been so fun to create a comfortable and luxurious retreat.
