Never before on the market! Originally designed and occupied by the developer, this penthouse condo spans the entire top floor of Broadview Towers in Riverside. It debuts 360-degree views of the downtown skyline, the St. Johns River, Memorial Park, and the Riverside/Avondale neighborhood. This is truly a one-of-a-kind apartment with unbelievable upgrades as it was designed by and for the developer. Discover this premier location in one of Jacksonville's most desirable neighborhoods along the St. Johns River. A stone's throw from a dozen restaurants, boutique shopping, and all the conveniences of living in an area with a high walking score. Upon arrival in your private 12th-floor lobby, you'll notice taller ceilings than any other floor in the building, a perk of owning the developer's unit. Solid wood double entry doors lead to an elegant foyer with marble floors, extensive moldings, and plenty of wall space to debut your favorite art pieces. Make your way through this designer showcase apartment and discover elevated style, fine craftsmanship, and elegant appointments. The living room features massive windows that allow natural light to flood the space. A gorgeous fireplace and custom built-ins center the room, while flowing hardwood floors lead you towards sliding doors that frame an endless river view. An enclosed balcony beyond the living room is the perfect place to catch a glimpse of dolphins playing in the St. Johns River. This enclosed space could be opened back up to be an outdoor balcony. Designed for entertaining, this one-of-a-kind penthouse boasts a truly genius floorplan with floor-to-ceiling windows that frame a unique view from every room and an elegant flow from one space to the next. Because it was originally designed as one unit, the floorplan isn't challenged like many "combined unit plans" in the area. Making your way west from the living room, you'll discover an expansive dining room with a wall of glass looking over the St. Johns River. Imagine hosting your next dinner party with a view south of the river where you can see as far as the eye can see. A gallery hall leads from the dining room to a stunning family room dressed with custom pine molding and tall windows that expand the river view. A fireplace with custom woodwork and a marble hearth center the room. Custom wooden shelves with space for a television anchor the fireplace. This room is perhaps the crowd favorite of the penthouse because it's simultaneously elegant and comfortable. An extended casual dining space with river views accompanies the family room, where you can enjoy breakfast or a card game with friends and family. In addition, you'll love the intimate views of Memorial Park, designed by the Olmsted Brothers, sons of America's foremost landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted, who laid out New York City's Central Park. Between the family room and the dining room down the gallery hall is the gourmet kitchen featuring an intelligent galley design with a Viking cooktop, professional range hood, a massive fridge and freezer, endless counter space, and solid wood cabinets. A butler's pantry has tremendous storage, a prep sink, and a walk-in pantry. A massive primary suite enjoys river and downtown views. The primary ensuite is equipped with a large vanity, shower, bidet, built-in heat lamp, and a walk-in closet. A keeping room off the primary suite is the perfect place to unwind in the evening and enjoy TV or a glass of your favorite wine. A built-in wet bar with a wine chiller accompanies the keeping room and a storage closet. This could be the 4th bedroom if needed. As you head towards the study, there's a full bathroom in the hall beyond the keeping room. Each bedroom enjoys a unique view of the river, the downtown skyline, Memorial Park, or the Riverside neighborhood. Each bedroom also has an ensuite bathroom; there's also a powder bath for day guests. Two guest bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms down a hall off the family room enjoy a view of the river and Memorial Park. A study with two built-in bookcases looks over the Riverside neighborhood. This apartment has two garage parking spaces, two storage units, and exclusive access to the 12th-floor lobby. Enjoy privacy and security at the top of Broadview Towers. You'll love an intimate condo lifestyle with only 24 units total. Building amenities include management, a secured entry, a second floor pool with river views, a gym, and a tennis court. The building was extensively renovated several years ago with new elevators, waterproofing, and more.
