This Atlantic Beach house was designed to look like a sandcastle


Jimi Hendrix once warned us to not build castles made of sand by the sea, but this house just resembles one.

Built in 1955 by architect James Dupree, the home is located at 2375 Seminole Road in Atlantic Beach, and was actually designed to resemble a sandcastle. According to the listing, the 3,791-square-foot house has three bedrooms and four bathrooms, as well as an indoor pool, a rooftop observation deck, antique beams re-purposed from downtown Jacksonville railroad trestles, wrought iron gates from St. Augustine, and an elevator. 

The "sandcastle home" is currently asking $2,297,000. The listing agent is Robert Van Cleve of Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty.
