With its mighty position high above the dune- like a citadel over the ocean & 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 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. 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 and Pier, the St. Augustine Lighthouse, the Matanzas Inlet… from your position at the very center of Crescent Beach’s famed crescent.
