A very unique opportunity to purchase a 7.92-acre estate on Amelia Island is now being offered. With very few larger parcels of land remaining on Amelia Island, this estate is particularly unique because it is also located just outside Fernandina Beach city limits affording the owner a lower property tax rate. 6 of the 7.92 acres have received an agricultural exemption – again, a much lower assessed property value is assigned to agriculturally exempted property. The owner will convey the property’s livestock, 2 heifer cows and a number of egg producing hens, with approximately 1 acre of the land used to produce some of the tastiest blueberries to be found anywhere. Approximately half of the exempted land, 3 acres, is cleared and used as pasture. For the horse lover that wants to live just a few minutes from Amelia Island’s world-famous white-sand beaches, you have found your dream home.
This estate has two homes. The main residence is a luxury home completed in 2004. This beautiful, custom home was built for comfort, utility, safety and privacy. A gated, circular drive helps to provide privacy while still providing the owner ease of access to the property when returning home. You will find many of the features you would hope to have in a luxury home: modern floor plan, open kitchen with recessed lighting, full complement of kitchen appliances with granite counters, two kitchen islands – food preparation island and breakfast counter island, separate kitchen dining area, travertine tile in the living areas and bathrooms, wall to wall carpet in the bedrooms, crown molding, large bedrooms, elegant stairways, in-law suite with a separate entrance, great room with 22-foot ceiling that opens to views of the pool area and the back acreage, 2nd floor balcony and loft overlooking the living area of the great room, spacious master bedroom with oversized master bath that features a separate shower and whirlpool bath. As a special safety feature, the large master bedroom closet doubles as a concrete-constructed tornado and safe room with steel door. Other important features included are: security system, automatic on/off closet lights, central vacuum system, custom woodwork and trim – wainscoting, baseboard and crown molding, plantation shutters, Andersen® windows, water softener, reverse osmosis drinking water system and lawn sprinkler system.
The house foundation was built 2 blocks above grade to provide superior drainage away from the house. The exterior is faced with fieldstone, cedar shake and stucco over block providing an esthetically pleasing and near maintenance free façade. Three covered porches accent the house: the primary entrance, a secondary entrance to the front of the house provides a private entrance to the in-law suite and utility area, and the rear porch provides shaded area for the pool area and a wonderful lounge area to enjoy the scenic pastures with the livestock. A small garden and fountain area just outside the kitchen sink window provides a wonderful view when doing kitchen chores.
A second house located within the estate has direct road frontage on Amelia Road. This house is a great asset to the estate providing a separate residence for other family members, estate caretaker or as a rental income property.
The ideal location of this estate on Amelia Island cannot be overstated. It is minutes to the beach, minutes to the local community airport and its central location on the island makes it convenient to anywhere else on the island during the typical day-to-day routine. Along with its acreage, pasture area, lower property tax rate, and lower agricultural assessed value, this estate also makes for a great financial decision in home ownership on Amelia Island.
