The Swisher San Marco riverfront estate is a beautiful piece of Jacksonville’s history and part of Northeast Florida’s 2015 notable real estate of record.
Originally built in 1929 for John Swisher of Swisher Cigars, the home on River Road is situated high on a bluff overlooking the St. Johns River. Designed by the prestigious Marsh and Saxelbye architectural firm, the palatial Mediterranean Revival-style home has been extensively renovated over the years. It includes four bedroom suites, six-and-a-half baths, a pool, pool house, deck and covered boathouse on the St. Johns River.
The magnificent, approximately 10,000-square-foot estate represents one of the largest single-family homes sold in Duval County this year. The estate, which sold for $4.2 million in June, was listed and sold by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty Realtor Anita Vining.
