Nestled along the pristine coastline, this tri-level residence seamlessly blends artistic vision with practicality. Situated on nearly half an acre with 100 ft of ocean frontage, the property is a sanctuary protected by dunes and lush vegetation offering privacy and convenient access to the beach via private dune walkover. The architectural gem, completed in 2004 by local architect, Frank Shumer, was designed with structural integrity in mind. Construction includes a ground level elevated above 20 feet, and commercial-grade materials, including a steel-reinforced concrete foundation, 12-inch-thick exterior walls with insulated concrete forms (ICF), a sloped Modified Bitumen asphalt roof, and structural concrete columns and beams. This level of construction ensures not only moisture resistance but also structural soundness to endure high winds, optimal sound and thermal control, and energy conservation.
Inside, the residence is equally impressive, spanning approximately 4,500 sf and reflecting an appreciation of art in every detail. A custom stained-glass front door welcomes guests and opens to an interior featuring Italian Travertine flooring, oversized windows with picturesque views, and open-concept living areas. The finished lower level features a two-car garage, a spacious living area, a fully-equipped galley kitchen, a wine room with storage for up to 100 bottles, a utility room, and a sunroom with sliding doors opening to outdoor living area with a firepit lounge, summer kitchen and manicured landscaping. A gallery-like salon, located on the main level, showcases 18-ft ceilings and a gas fireplace with a Travertine surround. Open to the living area is a newly-remodeled gourmet kitchen equipped with top-of-the-line GE Monogram appliances, Quartz and Labradorite countertops, plenty of custom cabinetry and a spacious walk-in pantry with a dumbwaiter running from the ground level to the main level, perfect for both cooking and hosting.
Comfortably accommodating up to eight guests, the residence offers two bedrooms, three full baths and the potential for an additional bedroom on the ground level. The upper-level primary suite features panoramic ocean views, plus a separate sitting area, walk-in closet by California Closets, and a newly-remodeled en-suite bath with dual sinks and Badeloft soaking tub. A loft bridge overlooking the living are below, utility room, and a charming office with western views over the Guana Reserve round out the upper level. Outside, an expansive tiered deck spans 10,000 sf and includes a dune walkover with a bridge, a summer kitchen, a firepit and a hot tub pad. Along the bridge, just steps from the sand, sits a grandfathered cabana with a marine-grade metal roof, seating area, outdoor shower, and fish cleaning station.
For added convenience, the residence features motion-detection security, video intercom, and indoor/outdoor surround sound. Also built to withstand various storms the residence is complete with a whole-home water filtration system, which provides softened water and reverse osmosis purification, a 25kW whole-home propane generator, and a 500-gallon propane tank running all gas appliances, fireplace and firepit. Though the residence may feel like an escape from the bustling city, it also offers easy access to nearby amenities including the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, downtown Jacksonville, Jacksonville International Airport, and for sports enthusiasts, the nearby ATP Tour Club, Sawgrass Players Club and Tournament Player’s Championship are just a short drive away. Perfect for a permanent residence or a luxurious vacation home, this property combines the best of coastal living with modern comforts and convenience.
Note: Site plan allows for 1,200-sf expansion and an enlarged garage. Inquire for details.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FL. What was first a frontier mining town in the early 1900s has now become one of the most high-end oceanfront playgrounds in the United States. To this day, Ponte Vedra Beach is still home to one of Florida’s rare AAA Five Diamond destinations: the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club. Synonymous with luxury, Ponte Vedra Beach has more to offer than just a breathtaking coastline. In fact, there are 73,000 protected acres of forests, tidal lagoons, and coastal dunes to explore. Enjoy the outdoors by kayaking what Folio Weekly calls the “Best Place to Kayak” or spend some time looking for shark teeth along the shore.
Located in St. Johns County–the wealthiest county in Florida–Ponte Vedra Beach is known for its “quiet opulence” that is not found anywhere else, as well as its resorts, A-rated schools and of course, its association with golf. Home to the PGA Tour headquarters and to one of the world’s most famous golf courses, Tournament Players Club (TPC) at Sawgrass; this is where Tiger Woods’ “Better Than Most” putt was heard ‘round the world in 2021.
JACKSONVILLE, FL. With over 840 square miles, Jacksonville is the largest city by landmass in the United States. In fact, Jacksonville has the largest urban park system in the nation and is four times the size of Manhattan! With over 80,000 acres of parks and 400 city parks, there is always something to do for any nature lover. If you would rather enjoy the water, Jacksonville is also home to 1,100 miles of shoreline and 22 miles of white-sandy beaches–you are never more than 60 miles away from the nearest body of water. Always sunny, Jacksonville inhabitants experience perfect, warm weather year-round (with a rare exception for the short, comfortable “winters”).
If you would rather get loud, shout some chants, and enjoy a game or two, Jacksonville is home to plenty of nationally recognized teams. The Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena hosts 16,000 seats for the beloved NFL Team, the Jacksonville Jaguars. You can also take the family to watch the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp play baseball or even watch a hockey game, rugby match, or basketball tournament. With plenty of sports to watch, it is only a question of when and where.
