    Amazing wide open panorama of our downtown skyline on a very high, private & beautiful .87/acre lot, this home has never been for sale. After merging riverfront County land with a piece of Los Cedros, Leland Burpee developed our Apalachee cul-de-sac, found architects & builders for the custom designed home & then he and his wife moved in 32 years ago. Living in this special place includes constant displays of wonder. From our very own sparkling downtown skyline to the nesting pair of bald eagles to the ospreys, herons & Ortega owls in our Oaks...to our little singing birds that inhabit the grounds to the endless water scenes of sunrises & sailboats & sunsets, there is really nothing that rivals our special location. An easy commute, a private location & a magnificent home ready for new. Built for a family who's kids were out of the home, the design incorporated their lifestyle of hosting parties & fundraisers. Large flowing areas with a backyard suited for tenting during events, this home has hosted groups of 400 people yet at the same time, the home is intimate and family friendly. With approximate 6144 SF inside, 2 garages for 3 cars & about 10 additional spaces for guests in the paver parking area, the home is well thought out. The entrance hall is welcoming with an approximate 25 foot ceiling hosting an antique iron chandelier that lived in a Scottish castle using candles for lighting (now converted to electric). The tall Pella window bank brings sunlight & moonlight into the entrance hall for spectacular shadows & plays of light. The wrought iron work on the staircase and on the grounds were forged by a local artist famous in the 70s-80s. The grand living room with mahogany beams is about 1000 SF & flows beautifully into the dining room (both with 11 ft ceilings). The table seats 12 with all the leaves in place. Many luncheons have flowed from dining room to living room to the bar & out to the terrace for the wonderful view. The open & bright kitchen is the perfect place to gather & cook dinner & the sunny room off the kitchen is where the family gathers to watch TV at night (approx 13 1/2 ft ceiling). The library is probably the best office in town with full on pool & river views. Great for workaholics... The owner's suite closes off to the rest of the home for privacy. There is an elevator to carry your luggage up & down. The upstairs terrace is a lovely space for lounging in the breezes. There is a beautiful bedroom outside the owner's suite and a downstairs guest bedroom separated from the bedrooms upstairs. (Bedrooms & other rooms approx 9 ft ceilings) There is a nice laundry room full of cabinets with a hallway of storage closets plus two large storage closets in the garages. Closets are abundant in the home. The home is high & dry and Irma proved it. The home didn't move or rumble as that train hit the house with insanely strong winds at 3 am. Built with some steel beams, concrete block and reportedly 2X8's and 10's, it is a sturdy home designed to withstand storms perched high above the mighty St. Johns River. There is not other spot in Jacksonville that has the wide view of downtown thanks to Los Cedros next door that adds a special peace when sitting outside. Welcome to a relaxing, and beautiful home built with strength and loved by many.
