Longvue is an Old Florida house set on private Medicis island in the Intracoastal Waterway surrounded by the Guana/Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve (73,000 acres) and Stokes Landing Conservation Preserve (300 acres). Private floating dock with tidal access to the IWC. Very private, with only three other residences. The 10 acre island is surrounded by rivers, marsh flats and fresh water ponds. Boat/Kayak to the National Reserve and walk the trails to S. Ponte Vedra Beach.

The space
Longvue sits on over 1 acre with 330' of marsh frontage and lawn on all sides. Open and bright 2,600 sf floor plan with vaulted ceilings and french doors leading to wrap-around brick Terraces. The Property has beautiful canopy of coastal live oaks, palms and magnolias and plenty of open yard on all sides. Beds are Queen, Twins and King at Master with most beds having trundles underneath (see photos for floor plan and bed Spec). Wood burning fire place in the River Room. New 60" flatscreen with commercial speed wifi. The Family Room has separate 1/2 bath and can be used as a 5th bedroom. The property has an invisible fence (collar available upon request) and is a great place for your dog. We have just installed a new variable speed HVAC system with dehumidification as well as new well and septic pumps to eliminate issues during your stay. Also a new septic system/pumps/drain fields as well as new water well pumps and irrigation pumps. There is a new refrigerator and dishwasher (8/2020) as well as a new set of washer & dryer (7/2020). This is a family weekend River House so the furniture is not perfect but elegant, timeless and comfortable. There are no screens on the windows.

There is a new Publix approximately 1 mile north of Stokes Landing Rd. on US1 at Palencia.

Guest access
We will provide a key for entry upon your arrival.

Other things to note
There is a raised wood dock over the marsh to a tidal floating dock for boat access (due to tidal conditions, there is a relatively steep entry access to the dock and the dock boards are weathered and not in perfect condition due to frequent storms- structural bolts and fasteners were recently replaced and deck boards fastened). Amazing saltwater fishing on fly or light tackle with world class flood tide flat fishing in September thru December as well as duck hunting in season at the Guana Preserve. Extra Large Green Egg grill/smoker next to pre-civil war era sugar kettle / brick fire pit. Private Horse Farm 1/4 mile just off-island for horse back riding on the island. This is a natural Florida aquifer & well so the water does have a sulphur mineral aroma for those not used to Florida water. We have a regular well system cleaning service. There are guest passes available for the private Serenata Beach Club in South Ponte Vedra (please inquire about access and fees for the club).

Note: Longvue is available for a very limited amount of private events to 100 people each year and requires an additional fee of $3,800. In an effort to control the number if events, any events held without permission or having more than 10 people will be charged this fee through the system.

Longvue is located on Medicis Island (also known as Diego Island) along the west edge of the Intracoastal Waterway (Market 36) within the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve. It is accessed off of Phillips Highway/US1 on Stokes Landing Preserve road through a rural, working class neighborhood and across a causeway to Stokes Landing Road. There are three other houses on the 10 acre island all of which are on 1 acre plus lots. Longvue Cottage has 330 lf of Marsh frontage and a 150' dock/floating dock to a tidal creek with access to the IWC. Afternoon breezes across the IWC provide a much cooler environment than the surrounding area and manage bugs as we typically have the doors open to enjoy the outdoors.
