This large, marshfront home is located in Turtles Shores, a gated beachside community in S. Ponte Vedra Beach. Enjoy the "Turtle Tunnel" for quick, safe access to one of the most beautiful beaches in the area with a great covered beach pavilion. Additionally, the community has tennis courts, pool with spa & waterfall, sauna, exercise room, and clubhouse.

But, it's the home that will really grab your attention. The owner took the builder's grade kitchen cabinets and placed them in the garage for extra storage, then installed custom kitchen cabinets with black granite countertops, coral backsplash and 3 sinks! A large kitchen island serves as a great breakfast bar and prep station. The wet bar sink in bay window area overlooks backyard. Venetian plastered walls in much of the downstairs.

There are columns in the dining room and separating the kitchen from the living or family room.

Bay windows in the master bedroom, dining room and kitchen.

Master bathroom has separate soaking tub and large tiled shower.

There are hardwood floors throughout home except one bedroom. Travertine and hardwood stairs.

What a great opportunity to pick up a large family home overlooking the marsh. This 2-story home has two covered lanais-one on the first floor and one above.

The master bedroom is on the first floor, with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths upstairs. The large 19x19 loft has wiring for your media room and is open to another space that could be used for an office. Washer/Dryer connections are in a closet in this space and it is plumbed, so could add a sink or wet bar. Additionally, there are washer/dryer connections in the master bedroom's huge walk-in closet and in the garage. All bedrooms, but one have walk-in closets.

No refrigerator, washer or dryer and missing some light fixtures. Invisible fence, but not warranted as entire home is being sold as-is (short-sale).
