Property Description 13385 SAWPIT RD, Jacksonville, FL, 32226
This is a rare opportunity to own a beautiful, marsh-front estate on Black Hammock Island. The views from this property are truly amazing. This private, 5-acre gated compound includes a gorgeous, custom cedar 2 -bedroom, 2-bath home and 1-bedroom, 1-bath guest house, garage, and boat storage. The main house has beautiful finishes, from the heart of pine floors to the custom hickory cabinetry throughout, including the master closet. Soaring ceilings in the great room allow for tons of natural light from the impact-resistant floor to ceiling windows. The fireplace is Tennesee river rock with a cypress mantle. The kitchen is truly a cooks kitchen, with a Jenn-Air gas stovetop and granite countertops. The home boasts beautiful outdoor seating areas as well, from the salt water pool area to the deck with hot tub, or, if shade is more to your liking, you can use the screened porch off the Master Bedroom. The Master Bedroom is spacious, with a beautiful fireplace. It is open to the Master Bath, which features a soaking tub overlooking the woods to the south of the property. The 1 Bedroom/1 Bath guest house is appointed with a washer/dryer and screened porch that also highlights the expansive views. Once you pass through the gates, the driveway winds along the property, past two fresh water ponds. The two ponds are fully stocked with bass, brim, and catfish, connected with a culvert under the driveway, and fed with a free-flowing artesian well. The small pond has a gravel boat ramp to back your boat and trailer into, run your motor and, at the same time, fully wash off your trailer. Then store the boat in the boat house and head off to the pool or hot tub. Incidentally, the irrigation system for the property is fed through these fresh water ponds. The closest dwelling is at least 200 feet away, separated by thick woods, and the roadway is 1/4 mile away. On a tranquil night, you can gaze at the stars and hear the ocean at the same time in this beautiful retreat.
