20 Jul Jacksonville’s FUNKY Celebrity House Update
Jacksonville Celebrity House Update
Talk about a hole in one! Now available, this 9,585 square foot Fred Funk Estate is on the market. Funk is known as a PGA tour golf legend, even winning the local Players Championship in 2005. If you have $6,100,000 burning a hole in your pocket, this could be the home for you.
Fred and his wife, Sharon, are selling this home in the wealthy enclave of Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Ponte Vedra is an area well known for golf and tennis professionals alike, since it is home to the PGA Tour Headquarters and ATP. Jim Furyk, Vijay Singh, MaliVai Washington, and Todd Martin are among the celebrity athletes that have called this place home.
About the Estate
Built in 2005, the home features the collaborative design of John Saladino and Frank Lloyd Wright. The estate offers a main house and 2 villas connected by verandahs. 7 bedrooms, 6 full baths, and two 1/2 baths await you in Marsh Landing Country Club, a gated community just minutes from the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy private views of the Intracoastal Waterway and a boat slip at the nearby marina if you prefer deep water access. The property boasts an impressive home theater, pool, hot tub, and wine cellar among its many attributes. I have to imagine there would also be ample room for your trophies? Of course, there is also the obligatory putting green of any professional golfer. Perhaps this is the answer to improving your golf game?
Funk’s Punks would have to agree that this is one of those properties that has a great balance between indoor and outdoor space. The wood and stonework throughout are impeccable and seamlessly flow from one room to the next. Folding panoramic doors overlook an event lawn that rivals any country club. Mature trees surround the property – a rarity with new builds these days! This is truly a one of a kind European inspired estate.
Rest assured, this property is as easy to like as Funk himself. Ponte Vedra loves Fred Funk, and we will be sad to see him go. Hopefully he’s just moving to Atlantic Beach? What do you think?
