Ponte Vedra Boulevard Homes Oceanfront Homes, Ponte Vedra Beach, Ponte Vedra Boulevard Homes, Old Ponte Vedra Beach,
Take a leisurely drive along Ponte Vedra Boulevard to view some of the finest homes along the Northeast Florida coast. The northernmost part of Ponte Vedra Boulevard begins in Jacksonville Beach, then parallels highway A1A along the Atlantic Ocean. Once you are in Ponte Vedra Beach you won’t see traffic lights or storefronts, and you won’t be bombarded by high rise buildings. You will see gorgeous estate homes on properties that are either oceanfront or have beach access right across the street, as well as a few beach clubs and condominiums.
The Ponte Vedra Inn and Club at 200 Ponte Vedra Boulevard offers members access to 36 holes of oceanside golf, world-class tennis with 15 Har-Tru tennis courts, a full-service spa, shopping, four restaurants, four heated swimming pools, and – of course – an expansive beach. Lodging is available at the Inn, and also at the Ponte Vedra Lodge and Club located at # 607 on the Boulevard at Corona Road.
Not surprisingly, the homes on Ponte Vedra Boulevard are among the most expensive in St. Johns County. For example, one 4 bedroom / 2.5 bath in Old Ponte Vedra sold for over $4 million. A nearby 5 bedroom / 5 bath home on the west side of the boulevard sold for nearly $2 million. Home prices at the lower end of this range suggest that the home may need renovation. Condominiums along the Boulevard include a few complexes near Corona Road – e.g., The Carlyle ($600,000 +), Las Mirandas (over $1,000,000) and The Breakers (over $1,000,000) – as well as Spinnakers Reach, located further south in Sawgrass Country Club, where you may be able to buy a condo for under $500,000.
All odd numbered addresses on the Boulevard are oceanfront. The higher the number, the further south on the Boulevard the house is located. Even numbered addresses are on the western side of the Boulevard across from the oceanfront homes.
“No Parking” rules make public access to the beaches limited to individuals who live in the area and can walk or bike ride to the Boulevard. From 311 & 313 Ponte Vedra Boulevard to 557 & 559 there are approximately 15 county maintained beach access points for bikers and walkers. There are four access points with bike racks. Private parking is available at the beach clubs and open to members only – Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, Ponte Vedra Lodge & Club, The Cabana Club, The Sawgrass Country Club Beach Club and The Plantation Beach House. For public parking, go to Mickler’s Beach Front Park, at the furthest south point of the Boulevard. Horseback riding access is allowed at Mickler’s Beach, with a special beach use permit. You can also find additional beach parking further south in the Guana State Park where there are three (north, middle, south) public parking lots (parking fees are required).
