    Description

    Step back in time and own a gorgeous coastal enclave! Situated where the Ft. George river flows into the Atlantic Ocean, this historical mansion sits on a high bluff well above and beyond the waterline. The 140-year-old Victor Blue house named Nelmar by its original owners is truly an architectural masterpiece. It was the winter residence for a family of the northern elite and WWI naval hero. Imagine sipping your lemonade on the grande front veranda and enjoying breezes amid amazing moss draped century old oaks and magnolias. This large veranda provides additional living space with marvelous views of marsh and ocean. The home has been extensively restored and renovated over the past 15+ years. Spacious rooms and abundance of large windows throughout the house bring in loads of naturallight. The entrance hall spills into the living rooms adding to the home's ability to entertain friends and guests. Two sets of double French doors open to veranda from living room and allow great flow for entertainment. The current owners have held parties of >200 guests with even more on the beautiful grounds. Besides the living and family rooms, the space on the first floor includes an elegant library with custom bookcases and a master suite with a private bathroom. The second floor has another master suite and three bedrooms. Bathrooms are furnished with original clawfoot tubs and pedestal sinks. All bedrooms are quite large with plenty of room for sitting areas. In addition, there are 2 sleeping porches with stunning views. Fort George is a world unto itself and once paraphrased as "An Island of the Sea" Despite its seeming isolation, the island is within 20 minutes of shopping and Amelia Island with its golf courses and other fun amenities. Highway A1A runs by the island and a ferry provides access to great dining facilities. The home with its 3 aces and large areas could be a phenomenal bed and breakfast retreat. Two rooms could be turned into bedrooms increasing bedrooms to 8. Ribault club is just a walk away.
