Ponte Vedra Beach home sells for Northeast Florida record $19 million

If you’ve ever wondered about the price tag on paradise, look no further than Ponte Vedra Beach.

After an unfinished home set the bar high in May with a $16.25 million sale, a grand oceanfront villa (just a few blocks away) surpassed that Northeast Florida record when it sold Sept. 8 for $19 million.

At 801 Ponte Vedra Blvd., the 9,200-square-foot home was first listed in March for $21.8 million. After dropping the price by $500,000 in August, the home sold just a few weeks later.

According to the Jacksonville Daily Record, which first reported the sale, the sellers were Dale and Jean Wolf and the Dale B. Wolf Revocable Trust. The buyer was recorded as Happy Oceanview LLC, a Delaware limited liability company with a St. Johns County address, where property records show a home owned by Devendra and Dhara Patel.

Justin Lott of EXP Realty, who represented the Patels in the purchase of the home, said the couple looked at one other property in addition to 801 Ponte Vedra Blvd.

Built in 2016, this 9,200-square-foot oceanfront villa at 801 Ponte Vedra Blvd. set a new record for real estate in Northeast Florida when it sold for $19 million on Sept. 8.

“The first home was a completely different type of property, much more modern, with materials imported from Europe. It was gorgeous, but a little cold,” Lott said. “This one just had that ‘wow’ factor and was perfectly suited to their taste.”

Lott noted that the buyers flew in from out of town to view the home in person, as they placed great value on “how it felt.” The location on Ponte Vedra Boulevard was a key factor, as were obvious features like the spacious two-floor outdoor living area overlooking both the pool deck (with swim-up bar) and ocean.
