JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On October 27, 2012, a lakefront residence in Jacksonville's premier golf and country club community will be sold at a luxury auction. Platinum Luxury Auctions, a Miami-based firm specializing in unique and luxurious properties, is handling the sale. The auction will be conducted in cooperation with listing agents and top-producing real estate duo Denette and Chris Triplett of RE/MAX Specialists in Jacksonville.
"This really is a special home. We're excited about the auction process and are confident the property will find a new buyer by October 27th," said Denette.
The property is located within the prestigious Glen Kernan Golf & Country Club, one of Jacksonville's most coveted communities and home to various NFL athletes, business executives and physicians from the nearby Mayo Clinic. Touted as being created for "The Select Few," the development was designed to be an exclusive yet spacious community that elegantly blends residential areas, golf facilities and natural surroundings. Of its nearly 600 total acres, 260 are occupied by the beautiful golf course, with another 60 acres dedicated purely to natural preserves and woodlands.
Located on an oversized, lakefront lot near a cul-de-sac, the property enjoys maximum privacy - a refreshing difference from many properties within the community with smaller backyards that are directly bordered by golf cart paths.
With over 5,400 interior square feet, 5 bedrooms and 6.5 baths, the property is ideal for larger families or simply for those who like to entertain. Its unique design features 2 pools: one located in the backyard and another within an interior courtyard.
Additional features of the home include a wine "cellar," gourmet kitchen, two-story foyer entry and grand salon, home theater, poolside cabana, whole-house audio system and 4-car garage.
Residents of Glen Kernan can enjoy its 15-acre sports complex, which offers 8 clay tennis courts, a 5,000 sq. ft. fitness center and Junior Olympic-sized swimming pool. Resident golfers are also able to join its exclusive, 18-hole golf club (How exclusive? Even PGA professionals need to be accompanied by a member).
"This is one of the most charming and well designed country club developments we've encountered," said Trayor Lesnock, Platinum's president. "I'll admire the buyer."
