Live in magical Empire Point surrounded by the St. Johns River on one of the highest bluffs in Jacksonville. This lovely renovated home sits high & dry on approx. 1.63 acres of privacy and spectacular views. Enjoy your own piece of heaven with towering oaks & riverfront fun. Entertain your friends & family with fireworks from ''The Bank'' atop your two story party-boathouse that has one boat lift (that could be enlarged for a yacht) & two jet ski lifts. Renovated for entertaining but also to enjoy everyday living...this is the real Florida lifestyle!This home was renovated to create a wide open kitchen and a private master bedroom suite. The kitchen is wide open and flows into the living spaces and outdoor areas. It has a roomful of sleek marble and granite countertops, two ovens for entertaining, a warming drawer, a gorgeous DCS Fisher & Paykel gas range and refrigerated drawers plus a wine frig. Spill over into your dining room or onto your massive deck where grilling and pool time are enjoyed all summer long. The living room lives large and has a timeless fireplace. It is a great place to gather as it flows into the Florida room that looks out onto the deck and river. A game table or a pool table can fit in the Florida room because it's open and roomy.
The master bedroom is private at the back corner of the home with a river view. It has an enormous master bathroom featuring a jetted tub, walk in shower for two, double sinks and two walk in closets. The two guest bedrooms are also private and share a super cool retro bathroom with subway tile and a clawfoot bathtub. Large walk-in closets and storage spaces fill the home along with beautiful woodwork on the walls, ceilings and floors. There is a guest powder room bath for visitors and a half bath in the garage for working in the yard.
During the renovation, Pella Windows were installed and a new reconfiguration of some walls were done. A lot of plumbing and electrical were done and some new ducts and new AC systems were installed along with a new roof. The previous owner said all of this was done in 2009-2010.
Enjoy the pool, the deck, the privacy and the boathouse in this tucked away neighborhood that feels like you're not in the middle of the City. Cut out your commute and live in the heart of Jacksonville on the St. Johns River...Welcome to 4987 River Point Road where Florida living takes over immediately after work.
