A truly extraordinary property offered for the first time in decades, this 1895 built grand home rests in the shade of ancient oaks on a tremendous bluff that overlooks the Halifax River. The astonishing 6 bedroom 4.5 bath home sits on over one acre of land with a rolling front lawn beyond the detached 4 + car garage. The rich interior of this home is simply breathtaking as it is nearly all covered in rich cypress. Not only are the trim work and handcrafted built-ins stunning, much of the walls and ceilings are either partly or completely constructed of beautiful hardwood. Five fireplaces formed of native Coquina rocks adorn the living spaces complimenting the gleaming hardwood flooring. CONTINUED...Remarkably, this home has remained largely original and unchanged with the exception of the baths and the kitchen. A grand foyer where the original massive Dutch door allows guests to enter from the riverside gives way to a sprawling riverfront living room with a series of French doors that open directly onto the covered brick lanai that extends the entire length of the home and serves as a waterfront outdoor living space with constant river breezes. The light filled island kitchen offers today's modern conveniences with a breakfast room and a casual family room offering family and guests a casual place to relax within the kitchen space. The kitchen also opens directly to the lovely formal dining room with incredible built-in buffet under leaded glass windows opposite a handsome fireplace. The oversized, riverfront master suite with sitting area, fireplace and walk in closet offers some of the best views and shares the second floor with a complete waterfront guest suite and a generous bedroom adorned with beautiful wainscoting. The third floor is completely charming and offers so many options with 3 bedrooms and a full bath. Beyond the main living spaces there is a very large basement that offers storage and has served as a home gym in the past. Above the oversized 4 car garage is a cavernous air conditioned and finished bonus room that could serve as a detached living area with plumbing in place. Deepwater dockage in the no wake zone was home to a 50' Sportfish Yacht for years with prime proximity to Ponce Inlet and the open waters of the Atlantic.
