Enjoy the exceptional location of 8715 Castaway Cove Court which sits on the lovely Saint Johns River (one of only two rivers in the Northern Hemisphere which currents flowing north). Nature Lovers: There is an abundance of wildlife to enjoy on a daily basis ranging from cute and cuddly baby manatees swimming under the dock to our nation's mascot, the Bald Eagle, sitting atop the boat house. Boaters: Access to the ocean, intercostal waterways and even Orlando is possible from your backyard. 7-8' deep water access regardless of the tidal variations. Ocean Lovers: a 25 minute ride from the home gets you to some of North East Florida's best beaches such as Ponte Vedra Beach. ----------------------------------------------------------- Nature Lovers: There is an abundance of wildlife to enjoy on a daily basis ranging from cute and cuddly baby manatees swimming under the dock to our nations mascot (The Bald Eagle) sitting atop the boathouse. Boaters: Access to the ocean, intercostal waterways and even Orlando is possible from your own backyard. Don't forget the boating opportunities up & down the Intracoastal Waterway also. Deep water access regardless of the tidal variations. Ocean Lovers: a 25 minute ride from the home gets you to some of North East Florida's best beaches such as Atlantic, Neptune, Jacksonville, & Ponte Vedra Beach where "Mickler's Landing" can easily be argued to be one of if not the best beach to find "beach trophies" such as shark teeth. Newly opened overpasses have created a virtual pipeline straight to the beaches from the riverfront home's location. Golfers: Pick a direction and you'll easily pass at least 5 golf courses after a 10 minute drive. World Golf Village - a golfer's paradise is less than 15 minutes so prepare to drop your handicap after a few months of playing in this area. Fishing Enthusiasts: If fishing in the back (or front) yard is not enough, there are countless waterways and boat-less spots to catch some of the best tasting fish like redfish, flounder, crab, shrim and more. The intercostal is a 15 minute ride, the ocean is roughly 25-30. There are hundreds of public man-made lakes in the area for those that love fresh water species. Schools: Public schools in the area are some of the best in the state & the best on the First Coast. Also, the growth in St. Johns County brings new school schools opening every couple of years. This destination is highly sought after for the high levels of academic achievement. WHAT MAKES THIS HOME GREAT? Vivid and explosive colors from "trophy worthy sunsets" create surreal backdrops on a nightly basis. Panoramic views of the Saint John's River can be enjoyed in both inside & outside of this home. The external "river facing" side of the home has ample room for entertaining guests and family gatherings on any of the terraced patio spaces. Customizations to this space include a custom wood veranda and an adjacent summer kitchen. The lower patio is ideal for soaking up the sun's rays in the morning to early afternoon hours and is a highly sought after dipping pool w/dolphin fountain or heat up in the winter via the gas heater (up to 105 degrees). Life can continue on well into the night with the use of tactfully placed outdoor lighting in combination with the external hardwired speakers. Star gazing opportunities are frequent and rewarding due to the lack of city lights. There's plenty of open grassy areas to accommodate pets of various types and sizes to roam freely and fencing ensures they'll remain within the confines of the property. Over 168 ft. of bulkhead gives rise to the various landscaping features showcasing a variety of seasonal blooms from flowering plant life. There are two docks on the property with a total of 4 lifts (2 powered and 2 manual). A covered boathouse with 10K Lb. lift and adj. slip with 28K Lb. lift can accommodate a craft of 50FT. The 2nd dock is ideal for launching a variety of smaller personal watercraft such as jet ski's, kayaks, paddle boards etc. Storage for craft such as these can either remain on the dock (2 jet ski cradles are attached to the "launch dock") or store them in the workshop/storage barn located roughly 35' away. There is also a navigable (to river) lagoon located on the non-river facing side of the property that has a deeded boat slip for this homes use.
