Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: We moved to the Jacksonville area in 2001 after too many winters in the Main Line area of Philadelphia. We couldn't be happier with the decision about moving.
Why the Owner Chose South Ponte Vedra Beach: Winter's Past is our second home and we enjoy sharing it with families who treat it as their own home. We do not manage any other properties.
