The Ocean Manors on Ponce Preserve

The Future of Oceanfront Town Homes in Florida – Take a Peak

Jacksonville, Florida (bookwired.com) November 13, 2006 -- It is always challenging creating luxury ocean front homes and ‘The Ocean Manors’ at Ponce Inlet was no exception. Cranewoods Development of Jacksonville, Florida had to negotiate local and State planning rules which restrict the building to a height of 35 feet and preserve the site lines of neighboring residences by drawing a line between structures to the North and South of the lot - beyond which you cannot build. The project also required coordination with “Coastal Control Line” which is imposed by the State of Florida to control design in beachfront areas. Cranewoods has considerable experience in building luxury waterfront homes and was able exceed buyer’s expectations while staying within the various regulations to create this spectacular design.

Andrew Howe, Manager of Cranewoods Development, stated, “We recognized a niche in the market for upscale oceanfront town homes, without sacrificing luxury and privacy and went about finding the perfect oceanfront location – that was Ponce Inlet, Florida.”

The design of these town homes is unlike the high-rises that dominate the Miami coastline. Each home is a minimum of 4,000 square feet with unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean, and lush Conservation land, which stretches to the Intra-coastal Waterway. The development is within an easy commute of Orlando for second homeowners or those wanting to make this their primary residence.

Cranewoods decided on exquisitely detailed Mediterranean architecture as the best fit for the project’s majestic site. In this case, the natural oceanfront dune system worked to the project’s advantage, by raising the development to a sufficient elevation to maximize on the location and views. To implement the project plans, the developer chose award winning HCM Construction as the builder for their considerable expertise in implementing sophisticated architectural details on oceanfront homes.

Internally, buyers will not be disappointed by the one of three vignettes they may chose from to best reflect their lifestyles and tastes. Private internal elevators, State of Florida approved impact windows, media room/guest suite, ocean deck off master bedroom, two car garages and private dune walkover come as standard. Private Jacuzzi overlooking the ocean is optional.

These magnificent waterfront homes enjoy a sophisticated locale minutes from all the activities associated with coastal living yet around the corner from nightlife, restaurants and the financial center of Orlando.

Howe continued, ‘In a market where lifestyle is king, I feel confident we have hit upon a niche for our projects that has barely been tapped. Sales support this theory.”
