    Description Tours

    This lovely home is private and hidden from Ortega Blvd. It sits very high above the river on .87/acre on the St. Johns River. Featuring a rare expansive panorama of Jacksonville's downtown skyline, the location is beautiful. After merging riverfront land with a piece of Los Cedros, Leland Burpee developed the Apalachee cul-de-sac & the land. He and his wife had the home designed & built 32-33 years ago. Days are picturesque and lively in this incredible location with nesting bald eagles, great blue herons, ospreys, the Ortega barred owls and the little singing birds all over the yard - not to mention the water life. The unreal sunrises and sunsets are ever-present while the City's twinkling skyline makes this home a unique and fascinating location in Jacksonville. (click more) Large flowing areas throughout the home promotes a sense of grandeur. The backyard is suited for tenting and has hosted 400 people yet at the same time, the home is intimate and designed for family life. With an approximate 6144 SF inside, 2 oversized garages for 3 cars & about 10-12 additional spaces for guests in the paver parking area out front, parking is thoughtful and works really well for parties and guests - or high-schoolers wanting to fish and swim. The double mahogany front doors welcome you into a large entrance hall with an approximate 25 foot ceiling where an antique iron candelabra that came out of a Scottish castle is the centerpiece. The tall Pella window bank above the front doors feels majestic. It brings sunlight & moonlight into the room for spectacular plays of light all hours of the day and night. The wrought iron work on the staircase and grounds was hand forged by Ponsler, a local iron artist. The unique living room is approximately 1000 SF with 11 ft ceilings. It features a large fireplace with an antique gothic mantle with built-in glass and iron doors & screens. With 2 sets of glass doors leading to the river terrace & 3 sets of mahogany pocket doors leading into adjacent rooms, this is a magnificent formal living room. It flows beautifully into the dining room that also has an 11 ft ceiling. The dining room table seats 12 with all the leaves in place and looks onto a private courtyard of greenery lit at night with accent lighting for a special touch.The Brunschwig & Fils wallpaper is premium designer paper. Dinners flow from the dining room to the living room to the bar spilling onto the river terrace for the wonderful breezes and dynamic colorful downtown view. (All downstairs moudlings and baseboards are mahogany.) The kitchen is open and large and is the perfect place to cook with the river as your backdrop. The custom designed cabinets are lacquered for a surface that will last a lifetime. The butler's pantry displays your glassware. Cooking in this room offers miles of counter space and room for your kids to sit at the breakfast bar and do their homework. The lovely TV room off the kitchen has an approximate 13 1/2 ft ceiling and is a great place to hang out. The views from these rooms is spectacular. The formal bar is a great place for the piano player in the family to bring everyone together. Billy Powell once played this piano and at another party Bill Berry signed autographs in this very bar! Lots of fun gatherings have happened in this home and bar. Make use of the extra cabinets (and hidden cabinet) to house your stemware and supplies. The custom crafted south African mahogany library works great as a place to read or listen to music. It was a den/TV room in the past but is currently the prettiest office in Jacksonville with the pool/knot garden/river view. There are 3 spacious bedrooms upstairs all with large walk-in closets 2 bedrooms share a very large bathroom designed with white marble tile, brass fixtures, a jetted tub, a large shower and a private 'water closet'. Kids love to hang out with you in the bay window in the mornings. There is an elevator to carry you and your luggage up & down if you don't want to use the stairs. The elevator is a very helpful way to remain in the home forever, even if you can't do the stairs. One of these bedrooms has a glass door to the upstairs covered patio area. This area has hosted outdoor living room furniture for lounging on a hot summer evening. There is a reading or computer area outside the 2 bedrooms overlooking the private courtyard below with windows that bring in lots of sunlight. There is also a large linen closet. The third bedroom is very lovely and it also has a glass door out onto the upstairs covered patio. It has a private full bath featuring white marble tiles. Back downstairs, there is a very large downstairs bedroom with a private dressing room and full bath also with white marble tile and Brunschwig & Fils designer
