Amelia Island Victorian Treasure: 1st Time on Market in 100+ yrs

28 N 4th St, Fernandina Beach, FL 32034, USA
$775,000

Description

SEE VIDEO BELOW!  This Folk Victorian is a block from Amelia Island’s historic Centre St. and its quaint shops, dining and entertainment; four blocks from the harbor; and six minutes to the award winning beaches of Amelia Island, Florida. The inside has wonderful Victorian architectural elements that add BIG charm and character, ranging from five stately fireplaces dressed with ornamental tiles and original mantels; to 10 foot crown-molded ceilings; to authentic heart pine floors and wainscoting. The wrap-around veranda features gingerbread decor and spindled banisters, and begs you to sit down, relax and cool off from the summer heat with a beverage. This home is the best of old world charm and modern conveniences, and its floor plan offers several nice options including a 5-bed home with in-law apartment; or two separate apartment rentals; or a primary residence with an in-home business, or convert the entire 2nd floor into a master suite. Bonus: 337 foot guest cottage with storage and workshop below.

The home was purchased by John Richardson “J.R” Hardee—a pioneer of the Amelia Island shrimping industry—and his lovely wife, Ella Content Davis, in 1912 and has remained in the Hardee family ever since.  Recollections from family records say the house was always  “a gathering place for family, friends, and children.” Particularly fond memories abound of the playhouse, which is currently the detached carriage house, where neighborhood children acted in and directed performances. Family historians recollect that the children charged an admission fee of 5 cents per person!

The Hardees were devout, hardworking people with strong values and sense of family. So perhaps what is most remarkable about 28 N 4th Street is the long line of Hardee family descendants who called it home, and the happiness they brought to their family, friends and community while living there. If those walls could talk, they would be smiling.
