With its mighty position high above the dune- like a citadel over the ocean and Intracoastal Waterway- II Views has been the subject of fascination since its build date of 2004. This magnificent estate has never before come to market. II Views' original owner has meticulously maintained its superior condition, ensuring this grand gated oceanfront home is move-in ready for its next owner, or the visionary who see potential for a first-class luxury vacation home catering to the most discerning of guests. Spectacular river-recovered heart pine floors span the upper three floors, topped by custom-designed rugs hand-woven in India. That same rare heart pine was used for the stunning dining area barrel ceiling as well as the staircases.On the main floor, the expansive living area, family room/game room, kitchen and dining area offer sweeping views of the beach to the east and Matanzas River to the west. The kitchen, with its custom designed refrigerator resembling an antique icebox, is equipped with Bosch, Dacor, Thermador, SubZero and GE Monogram appliances built into the custom cabinetry (soft close, of course) over 2 sprawling kitchen islands topped with very rare Blue Bahia granite slabs. This is a kitchen designed for serving family and friends, while the cook enjoys the conversations of guests. The butler's pantry tucked away adjacent to the dining area features river-reclaimed heart pine cabinetry and is equipped with a warming drawer. You'll find a total of 4 additional refrigerators outside of the kitchen. The family room/game room, overlooking the pool and cabana area, is equipped with a dedicated wet bar area including built-in ice maker. An elevator reaches all four floors, with the 6 gorgeous large bedrooms in the main house being on the upper two floors, affording extraordinary views of sunrises and sunsets over the water. The master, in its own wing, contains two distinct bedroom suites, and the master bath with its calming neutral palette of superior materials has a towel warming drawer for chilly days. Open the hatch at the peak of the home and step out onto the watchtower soaring above the beach- you'll see for miles and miles in all directions... the St. Augustine Inlet, St. Augustine Beach Pier, the St. Augustine Lighthouse, the Matanzas Inlet... from your position at the very center of Crescent Beach's famed crescent. On the ground floor level, there's plenty of room for a children's playroom amid the amazingly realistic multi-wall mural depicting life under the sea (Can you find Nemo?). You'll also find a wine cellar, 1/2 bath, nanny or caretaker's office, one of two laundry rooms and storage areas. A tunnel connects the ground floor to the 3-car garage. Above the garage, a beautifully appointed nanny or caretaker's quarters with full kitchen, bath, sitting room and bedroom complete the bedroom count. Relaxing beachside by the heated saltwater pool is a breeze with an outdoor kitchen, gas grill, and private cabana/full bathroom. The covered patio area leads to the private gated beach walkway over the protected dune, where you'll often see turtles, Anastasia Beach Mice, and the cutest little bunny rabbits scampering about. Only the finest in materials, fixtures and finishes were used in construction, which took almost 4 years to complete. Twenty-seven pilings sunk deep into the ground and under the foundation anchor this fortress while a lightning rod on its tile lifetime roof, 1-hour rated fire suppression between floors, and a generator ensure that the structure will withstand the strongest of storms. Mahogany windows, automated shades on entire first floor and master bedroom, gas fireplace, Crestron home automation, whole house dehumidifier, and hot water recirculation system outfit this estate.
