Beautifully located duplex beach townhome ... the possibilities abound.
Amelia island, Florida (PRWEB) May 23, 2013
In today's world of overbuilt, overly fussy houses, 2168 First Avenue in Fernandina Beach evokes a simpler vibe. Here is a classic, laid-back beach house, configured as two townhomes that are currently rented but are adaptable to a multitude of needs. This ideal investment property, offered by Prudential Chaplin Williams Realty, features the wonderful atmosphere of Fernandina Beach with its nationally-recognized downtown Historic District, yet is close to modern shopping and easy highway access.
Buyers will be impressed by the open kitchen with upscale cream cabinets featuring custom molding. The stainless-steel appliances, including the built-in microwave, are included in the home price. Subtle granite makes for a countertop that is not only good-looking, but also durable and easy to clean.
The living room is assymetrical, not the usual box shape. The ceiling fan and fireplace make for comfort at any time of the year. High vaulted ceilings increase the sense of spaciousness, while warm wood floors flow naturally to the French doors and the patio. All three bedrooms have en-suite baths featuring glassed-in showers, diagonal tile and granite, plus there's an additional half-bath for guests. The master bedroom and balcony feature stunning ocean views and a chance to drift to sleep on the sound of the waves. Bedrooms are carpeted for chilly mornings, while in the kitchen floor tile makes for a cool feel even when cooking a Thanksgiving turkey. An upstairs laundry room simplifies tasks, while large closets offer plenty of storage for beach gear, toys and hobbies. The attached garage easily shelters two good-sized cars.
Situated in a warm, friendly neighborhood with plenty of curb appeal, this home is surrounded by lush landscaping. At this property it's just steps to the beach via an easy back yard access: not a river, not a floodplain but an actual sandy beach on the Atlantic Ocean. The home fronts a paved road that is publicly maintained. Buyers purchase a home, not a set of rules: no HOA means no HOA fees and no one telling you what colors you may paint or which plants you may grow. Isn't freedom grand?
This property comes with a home warranty for extra peace of mind and easy maintenance. The large lot, nearly a quarter of acre, has room for kids, pets or a spa. Powered by clean electric heat, this townhome was built by the Miller Companies, licensed builders with a long track record of successful local development. Both units together have almost 3500 square feet: combine for one luxury townhome, rent one or both!
