About this property
Maybe it’s the many tales of spectacular treasure hidden somewhere on our beautiful coast, or just the thrill of finding that special unexpected something we’ve long been searching for-but whatever it is, your quest is finally satisfied, an exclusive one-street neighborhood on the intracoastal marsh in Neptune Beach. In the wooded and quiet subdivision, large oaks dot the waterfront area tastefully accented by unique custom-built homes. A short mile from the beach with direct access to the Intracoastal waterway, your treasure hunt leads you to a two-story custom home built by Frank Gamel. The spacious five-bedroom, four full bathroom home, located at the end of the cul-de-sac and situated on the home site to take maximum advantage of the mesmerizing views of More… Hopkins Creek marsh leading into the Intracoastal waterway, is paradise, replete with the natural wonders of native birds and aquatic wildlife set against the unforgettable sunsets of the First Coast. Coastal beauty can be viewed from virtually all over the house – the elegant Master retreat, the upstairs balcony of your entertainment room, your covered lanai adjacent to the pool, and/or the new pool deck with added fire pit, this nearly half acre waterfront property is breath-taking and truly enviable. Whether you’re thinking of an intimate dinner party for 2 or a cocktail gathering for 100, this home is the perfect setting. When guests enter your home, they will be captivated by the spacious view from the front doorway straight through your lovely living room to your inground sport-style saltwater pool with self-cleaning system, large sun deck with fire pit, and nature’s stunning intracoastal wonderland framing the rear of your waterfront property. Boasting a large kitchen with breakfast nook, custom cabinetry, granite countertops, elite GE Profile appliances to include a double oven and 5 burner electric range, and a new water softener allow for easy party prep or simply making everyday meals a breeze. The family room has a cozy with wood-burning fireplace and accesses the lanai and newly pavered pool deck through a large pocketing sliding door, bringing the beautiful Florida coastal living inside, making it a daily reality for family and guests alike. The home has 5400 square feet under roof with 3741 square feet of air-conditioned space that is easily upsized by converting the walk-in garage attic to make an additional bedroom or multi-purpose space. All bedrooms currently have customized closets. Thoughtfully designed to accommodate those with special needs, the home’s spaciousness includes a 926-ft oversized three-car garage, with new epoxy flooring, wide hall and doorways, and an elevator. Your own private retreat is the master suite located on the first floor of your home with private access to the lanai and pool area. Starting your day observing the beautiful waterfront views from your master is enhanced by the luxurious master bath complete with a separate custom shower and two shower heads, a jetted tub, and two master walk-in closets. Upstairs bedrooms are spacious and inviting for guests with two of the bedrooms sharing a large jack and jill bath; and another with direct access to a hall bath. All boast custom closets for the convenience of guests or family. Also upstairs is the entertainment room complete with wet bar, a balcony overlooking the pool area and intracoastal, and a pool table which is conveyed with the home. Utilitarian details of this fabulous home are many to include a spacious laundry room complete with utility sink and plenty of work space; large walk-in attic space with tons of storage; spray foam insulation; aluminum fencing separating the pool area from the marsh, surround sound speaker system throughout the entertaining spaces both inside and out, plantation shutters for all front windows, two outside heated shower areas, a pool bath area, ceiling fans, oversized 3 car side-entry garage, wheelchair accessibility, a machine room, a security system and a newly painted exterior. It’s hard to imagine any details the former owners did not foresee and include in order to make this jewel of Neptune Beach a property that any resident would love to call home. We suggest you not delay in viewing this hidden treasure – it’s just waiting for the most discriminating buyer to find!
