“Old Atlantic Beach” heart and soul meets “East Coast Cool”! This ocean side compound, consisting of a quintessential cedar shake beach house, a tropical pool setting, a picture perfect guest cottage and a lush yard, provides the perfect setting for living, playing, lounging and entertaining! You’ll be struck the moment you arrive at this iconic property which is located directly across from the beach on one of Jacksonville Beach’s most treasured corridors and a few blocks from Atlantic Beach’s buzzy “corner”. The previous owners of this home have worked to preserve the 1940s character of the residence while renovating/remodeling/updating the home along the way to meet today’s modern lifestyle preferences. Crisp white original pine walls and ceilings along with beautifully preserved pine floors throughout adorn the interiors, create an upbeat vibe and provide a perfect backdrop for a colorful art collection!
The 2nd story sun-splashed family room, dining and modern kitchen combine in a convivial common area to make the core of the home a place where friends and family converge. The party flows out to the inviting elevated covered porch overlooking the back yard paradise. Also located on the 2nd story main living area is a library/office with a full bath which allows an option for overflow guests. Three cozy secondary bedrooms are located on the 1st floor while the expansive 3rd floor primary suite offers views of the breezy palms and provides a peaceful retreat. Enjoy the salty breeze from the east side wrap balcony. A refreshing dip in the pool after a sandy beach run is simply irresistible! Guests will enjoy privacy and serenity in the detached guest cottage. The best kept secret is the large room (former garage) attached to the guest cottage which would make for a spectacular pool cabana!! The current owners have architectural renderings reflecting their vision available for prospects who care to review them.
Celebrate the sun, surf and sandy feet every single day!!
