Take a drive through Old Ponte Vedra, and you’ll notice that it feels like almost every other house is under construction or under renovation. This is the second claw attack this summer that I’ve seen. It makes me sad every time I see it. What was a house full of memories, a place that someone called home is gone in the span of a few hours.
Don’t get too judgy though. Keeping the old vs taking on the new is often a tough choice. My husband and I went through the same claw attack on Pablo Road about a year ago. It was not a hasty decision, in fact, we went through six, maybe eight, months of renovation plans before we realized it just didn’t make sense to renovate. Real estate is a tough business.
Goodbye old house. I hope you brought joy to those you served.
