Inspired by the simplistic elegance of Modern Spanish architecture, the five-bedroom, six-and-one-half bathroom courtyard home features 5,067 square feet of living space and perfectly marries luxurious outdoor living with bright, airy indoor spaces. Distinctive architectural elements include exposed rafter tails, clean white stucco, traditional barrel tile roof, cedar beams and vaulted tongue-in-groove ceiling in the rear lanai. The inspiration and thoughtful design of this masterpiece is completed by a secluded side courtyard and a massive central courtyard that boasts authentic stone columns lining the extensive promenade which encircle the warm ambience of one of four masonry fireplace in the home.

The single-story estate home features the generous use of natural stone and hardwood flooring throughout. The gourmet kitchen has a spacious island with built-in seating, a combination of quartz and natural stone countertops and includes a professional appliance package. The lavish owners’ suite showcases a barrel vault ceiling and opens to a walk-out patio. The owners’ suite includes a walk-in closet with freestanding island, a built-in coffee bar, custom vanities with built-in storage and a luxurious bath with walk-in shower and freestanding tub. The home has a three-car garage and lush landscaping.

Pablo Creek Reserve is an exclusive gated residential community conveniently located near Mayo Clinic, the St. Johns Town Center and the beaches of Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra.  The community features many trails for walking and jogging as well as parks and lakes.

In addition to Pablo Creek Reserve, The Pineapple Corporation is building new single-family homes in Glen Kernan Golf and Country Club and coming soon to The Vista at Twenty Mile in Nocatee. The Pineapple Corporation also builds on individual home sites.
