135 Long Point: A Rare Opportunity for Luxurious Living on the Water!
Amelia Island, FL (PRWEB) May 09, 2013
The secret is out. Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach, once names known only to locals, are now nationally recognized as luxury waterfront communities offering up the finest in Northeast Florida amenities and lifestyles. A balmy climate, sophisticated shopping and unlimited access to outdoor recreation lure discerning buyers to homes like 135 Long Point Drive in the upscale Long Point subdivision. Represented by local industry leaders Prudential Chaplin Williams Realty, here is an outstanding example of Amelia Island real estate that amply demonstrates why this area, and Fernandina Beach homes in general, continue to turn heads.
This is a traditional family home, warm and welcoming with its twin curving staircases to the front door. High ceilings and wood floors greet visitors in the spacious foyer, leading to the great room with its massive gas fireplace and view-filled windows. A formal dining room leads into the supersized kitchen with a center island and elegant green granite countertops, custom cabinetry, stainless appliances, two dishwashers, disposals and ovens, gas cook top, three sinks and wine cooler refrigerator. Facing the fully screened porch and overlooking the pool is an informal breakfast area suitable for sit-down meals: no more perching on high stools! A den with exquisite hardwood built-ins and a bar sink provides an ideal place for family movie nights or adult conversation.
The huge master bedroom also opens onto the veranda and features walk-in closets and a cozy fireplace. View the master bath and discover an opulent world of marble and dark wood cabinetry, where the jetted tub overlooks the landscape and two sinks make for amicable mornings.
Upstairs, three additional bedrooms incorporate features like a stepped-up patio entrance, window seats and ceiling fans. A second family room on this level features a pool table and space for the widest of widescreen TVs, a perfect place for teenage hang time under the family roof. Also incorporated into the open space on the landing is an office with built-in shelves and cabinets, large enough for two people to work independently or together, and bow-fronted library shelves on the landing.
Step outside, and take in the private heated pool. Two outdoor showers mean no sand or dirt tracked into the house. A summer kitchen with sink, stainless-steel cabinets and an impressive gas grill makes for fabulous al fresco dining on the patio. Then, stroll the boardwalk to the deep-water dock with boatlift on the sheltered Intercoastal Waterway location on Amelia River to view the Atlantic just beyond. Most residences in this guard-gated subdivision of Fernandina Beach homes come with the dock feature, so there'll be plenty of other boat owners around with whom to swap stories and share water lore. If golf is a passion, the Omni Amelia Island Plantation's incredible Tom Fazio designed Long Point Golf Course meanders right through the neighborhood.
In a home of this caliber, thermo-paned windows, metal roof, sprinkler and termite control systems are a matter of course. Should high winds strike, a whole-house generator is on hand to keep the lights on and the fridge cold. The cavernous garage, ideal for hobbyists and collectors, is accessed via breezeway from the main house, and above the garage a sleek one-bedroom apartment awaits guest or staff.
Because this home is presented by Dee Chaplin, Broker/Co-Owner of Chaplin-Williams Real Estate, buyers can be assured of professional treatment and consideration. Dee Chaplin is highly regarded by local residents for her thorough knowledge of Amelia Island real estate and her devotion to customer care.
