Modernized loghouse nestled among giant Florida Oaks set back on 2 acres of private, tranquil grounds and only 3 miles to entrance of TPC tournament. This is a total get-away from the stressors of everyday life! Swing on the front porch and listen to nature. Not unusual to see a rafter of wild turkeys strutting through or beautiful deer grazing. This spot gives the feeling of being far away yet is convenient to everything in town. Bike rentals are a few minutes walk from the house and only minutes to the beach. This is a very private beach as the Guana National Preserve begins and is 15 miles of undeveloped beaches! Some enjoy horseback riding on the beach. Minutes from Fresh Market, Starbucks, breakfast diner, and 5 star restaurants!
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: As an avid traveler myself, I have often used VRBO and had wonderful adventures that far exceed the typical hotel experience. You get far more for your money! I have equipped my home to make a get-away as convenient and stress free as possible with a fully equipped kitchen, hair dryers, plenty of towels including beach, beach chairs, grill on deck, notebook filled with best spots to eat or get a massage! Different from the run-of-the-mill overcrowded,high rise,putt putt infested,condo after condo...this community is tranquil with the tallest building a 2 story lodge and is predominantly private homes, golf courses and tennis haven. I chose it for the 2 acre private setting...rare at any beach town. I plan to hand this down to generations through my four grown children and keep this gem in the family.
Why the Owner Chose Ponte Vedra Beach: When looking for a house near the ocean, my neighbor, a Florida cracker born and raised here said to me..'you, my dear, are getting the last little piece of heaven in Ponte Vedra Beach!' When I want rest and relaxation, I don't want fast food restaurants on every corner and congested traffic. I chose this due to the tranquil setting, the feeling of a retreat home rather than just a house, the gorgeous giant Oaks and location that feels a million miles from anything but is in reality minutes from everything I could possibly need....good nutritious food, fun local coffee house, local hardware store, exercise and spas and the finest restaurants on par with Charleston, NYC and New Orleans!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Sit on the front porch swing and see the lifelong pair of hawks, the rafter of wild turkeys that strut through daily, all types of birds and if lucky....you will hear but may see the white barn owl who claims ownership to this land. I enjoyed completely renovating this 1980's loghouse updating with all new appliances, a real tin roof to hear the pitter patter of rain, a gorgeous stone fireplace for a romantic evening or reading by the fire,a visit to the bike shop just a jaunt down the street to rent a bike and ride along the beach homes of Ponte Vedra (15 mph!) or down along the Guana Preserve. Walk for miles on the beach and it is quite possible you will have the beach to yourself most of the walk!
