Can we all pause for a moment to appreciate how amazing this back yard is?!

U_Custom-Pool-Deck

I really love our new listing. The backyard is so amazing I’m thinking about including terms in the contract that whomever buys this home has to invite me over for parties!

The Deets: Come live in a tropical oasis home, without the high costs of an HOA. This 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, 2 Car Garage single family pool home is set in a great neighborhood with plenty of perks. Inside this home you will enjoy the enhanced open feeling from the high vaulted ceilings throughout. Since there is no carpet within this home, the tile and engineered wood flooring look great and are easy to care for. As you walk through the front door, a large interior foyer hallway greets you. Just to the left is a perpendicular hallway that leads to both large guest bedrooms, and to the large updated full guest bathroom. As you proceed to the main living room area, you will immediately notice the large windows, sliding glass doors, and high ceilings that allow for ample natural light. Enjoy the kitchen, which has been recently enhanced with custom lighting, stainless appliances, and renovated cabinetry. Attached to the kitchen, and open to the entire living room, is the dining area. Looking out into the living area, this open ambiance makes this home a great place to entertain family and friends. With the master suite towards the rear of this home, you can separate yourself from your guests. The master suite is large and perfectly designed to accommodate large furnishings. The master bedroom offers a huge walk-in closet, a separate vanity area, and a water closet that accommodates the toilet and shower. If you love to spend time outdoors, this is the home for you. As you enter the backyard from the sliding glass doors of the family room, you step outside into your very own tropical retreat. Running the full length of the backyard, a new custom designed heated pool and deck make this backyard one of a kind. The custom pool provides a shallow lounge area, and a raised spa with a waterfall into the pool. The custom paver deck covers the majority of the privately fenced backyard, and is wrapped with gorgeous landscaping and landscape lighting. Also, a custom fire pit is built in the corner of the pool deck. This fire pit offers the perfect place to relax and make s’mores in the evening. This home was updated with a brand new roof in 2013, and is provided with hurricane shutters. This home is set inside a very desired, and absolutely spectacular community known as the Heights of Jupiter. Just steps from this home, there are tons of local amenities to choose from. Enjoy the park inside the community, as well as multiple public parks and recreational facilities that are scattered throughout the area. Take a short walk to the tennis courts, basketball courts, racquetball courts, skateboard park, baseball park, restaurants, boutique shopping, and many other luxuries and amenities. Less than a mile away, you can take on a game of golf at Abacoa’s renowned public course. This home and community has it all. Amazing Schools and Amazing Neighbors will keep you always wondering why other people live where they do! On top of all these great bonuses, this community is one of the very few that does not have the extra monthly or quarterly fee from an HOA. Interested in viewing this beautiful, Jupiter Florida home? Let me know!

Going To The Movies In Jupiter Just Got A Whole Lot Better

Growing up in Jupiter we always had the Jupiter Movie Theater as a place to go. It was where we first learned to have our Moms drop us off at the far side of the plaza, so we wouldn’t be seen getting out of her car. Mortifying!! Looking back though, of course our Moms were driving us, we were in middle school. Who did we think we were fooling?? Haha!

But I digress. Having a movie theater was totally awesome. However, over the years it slowly went downhill. Showing it’s age and never being updated. Your feet would definitely stick to the floor, every time. The chairs were gross and over all, it just wasn’t a fun theater to go to. Once the theater at Downtown at The Gardens was built, I never went back to the Jupiter Theater.

That has forever been changed! Guys!! We have a Cinépolis Theater, right here in Jupiter now, and It. Is. AWESOME.

IMG_8459

My husband and I went this past weekend to see Mission Impossible. The theater was really beautiful inside! I felt like we were walking into a really nice hotel lobby.

IMG_8460

IMG_8462Now, arriving early to the movie doesn’t mean you have to wait in an almost empty theater. Pull up a stool at the bar & enjoy a frosty beverage. They even have my favorite, local beer on tap. The Chancellor by TBC! Don’t have time to finish your beer before the show starts? No worries, just bring it in with you!

Cinépolis Jupiter offers two different ways to see a movie.

From their website: “The theater’s “Cinépolis Luxury Cinema” auditoriums offer guests a luxury movie-going experience with fully reclining leather seats and in-theater waiter service and dining with full bar, available at the touch of a button. Guests of the theater’s “Cinépolis” auditoriums can enjoy a premium theater experience with comfortable seating and access to the gourmet menu and full bar in the lobby area.”

We opted for the Luxury Cinema and loved it! Large comfortable chairs that allow you to put your feet up, seat side service and a full menu were features that made our visit very enjoyable.

We enjoyed the chicken fingers & the Chocolate & Carmel Popcorn. They were both very tasty!

We give this theater  Two Thumbs Up! Have you been? Did you like it? Tell me what your favorite thing about it is. If you haven’t been, go now!!

At The Juno Beach Pier

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve been to the Juno Beach Pier. I forgot how amazing the view of our gorgeous Atlantic Ocean is from there! I took a leisurely, evening stroll down the pier with my husband last weekend, and it did not disappoint!

IMG_8056B

Located just off from the Ocean Rescue Headquarters at 14776 Highway A1A, Juno Beach, Florida 33408. The pier is the perfect spot for anglers, beach goers and spectators. Admission fees are $4.00 for anglers and $1.00 for spectators. If you’re fishing off the pier, they have a a small bait shop located right at the admission gate. Need an ice cream on a hot day? They have that too!

IMG_8057

Admittedly, I’m not a very good fisherlady. Honestly I don’t have the patience for it and watching the caught fish flop around out of the water, breaks my heart every time! However, it was quite humorous to walk down the pier and see the fish out smarting the fisherman the whole time! There were HUGE fish below the pier, probably close to 50 anglers all up and down the pier and not one of them were catching anything!

IMG_8061B
Check out the size of those bad boys!

 

It was awesome to watch the giant bait balls swim in formation, making perfect circles around the larger fish. The perspective from the pier is really cool!

IMG_8071

IMG_8090
If you look close, you can see the stingray that swam by.

 

IMG_8087

You just can’t help but feel yourself relax looking at the view from the pier! Not only are the views spectacular, the pier also plays an important role with keeping our local marinelife safe and the environment healthy. You can learn more about the Responsible Pier Initiative on the Loggerhead Marinelife Center’s website here.

This is just one of the MANY reasons I love working & living in Jupiter, Florida. If you live in the Jupiter area, be sure and take a some time to enjoy the pier from time to time. It really is quite lovely.

The start of summer is upon us! If you’re a regular reader of this blog you know I’m kind of obsessed with my home town Jupiter, Florida. Living and working in this town is really great!
