WOW! Those of us who live and play in this fabulous community know that we live in a special place. It appears now that we have been discovered.
In a recent article in the prestigious “Financial Times” the periodical calls our community, Jacksonville’s Malibu.
The article goes on to say, “Forget Miami’s celebrity hotspots or the old money opulence of Palm Beach. The highest-income county in Florida is almost 300 miles further north, on the outskirts of Jacksonville, on the Atlantic coast.”
We may be the highest income county in Florida, but our Real Estate prices, compared to South Florida, are extremely reasonable. Oceanfront homes range from $2,950,000 to $8,900,000.
This magnificent 7,987 square foot -6 bedroom – 6 bath – 2 half bath home sold in March of 2017 for $5,100,000.
This one is on the market for $5,950,000.
The only problem, or maybe it’s a blessing, is that we are almost out of land. People who have discovered our little corner of paradise are moving in and tearing down older homes to build to their tastes.
Even though land is scarce the prices are still modest. The law of supply and demand has not caught up.
This home sits on a hundred and ten feet of oceanfront. The price is a modest $5,225,000.
Or if you want 30 foot elevations and views that stretch to infinity, build your home on this 200 foot 1.84-acre lot for under $5,000,000.
Come on down, wriggle your toes in the water, smell the salt air and explore what amounts to a nearly private beach. Maybe Ponce de Leon was on to something when he put ashore in Ponte Vedra Beach.
