Amelia Island - Vacation Destination
It is easy to see why Condé Nast Traveler has voted Amelia Island one of the top 10 islands in North America two years in a row! With its 13 miles of pristine beaches, gentle inland marshes, and treasured state and local parks, Amelia Island offers everyone the perfect environment for sport and relaxation. You can hang out by the beach, bird-watch or go hunting for shells and sharks' teeth in the sand. Fishing, horseback riding, hiking, kayaking, playing golf or tennis, canoeing and sailing are alternatives for sports enthusiasts! If shopping, spas and fine dining are more of your kind of fun, there's plenty of that too, thanks in part to the luxurious Amelia Island Plantation and Ritz Carlton Hotel located near the Summer Beach Resort and Country Club. Should you prefer an eclectic mix of casual eating, antique shops, and art galleries, the Downtown Historic District which runs along Centre Street in Fernandina Beach provides a slow paced and quaint diversion.

The Magic of Old Town
Old Town, originally known as Fernandina, was the epicenter of activity on Amelia Island for over 250 years. The five by six block area that makes up Old Town is surrounded by water on three sides — to the east, beautiful marshland, to the west the Amelia River, and to the north, Egan's Creek and Tiger Point Marina. The tranquil Bosque Bello cemetery occupies the southern side. Platted in 1811 as the last Spanish city in the Western Hemisphere, Old Town is Florida's only town for which the original site plans remain intact. Indeed, historians prize it as the only undisturbed example of Spanish land planning in the Western Hemisphere. As a result, and thanks to some pioneering folks still living there, Old Town was put on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.
Las Casas is currently pre-selling two residential homes to be built on Lots 5 & Lot 6, Block 16 of Old Town. Each house will be built on one full peonia. For more information on pre-sales, please contact Pam Meyer, the exclusive real estate agent for this development.
