Resting by the banks of the St. Johns River is the beautiful and the peaceful gated community. River Story. If you are looking for a custom luxury home community in Mandarin, there is no way River Story isn’t already on your list. Andy Reynolds, one of Northeast Florida’s leading custom builders, now gives you one big, super luxurious reason to make River Story a place to call “home.”
Let us introduce another custom creation we are extremely proud of – the magnificent stucco and stone home that reflects the European class and luxury. Surrounded by a professionally designed landscape, the house is a sight to behold even from miles away. The stone flooring of the porch pays a perfect complement to the groove ceiling and stained tongue above. Together, they say a warm welcome to anyone who wishes to take a look at this Riverfront gem.
While the exterior is spellbinding to say the least, the real magic is what’s inside. Homebuyers will be more than impressed with the comfortable life this luxury home promises.
This River Story custom home built by Andy Reynolds Homes is a one story family home with 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. The open floor plan includes a Kitchen, Casual Dining & Great Room. You also get a formal dining space, study, and a 15’ x 18’ bonus room that you can use for any purpose you prefer. Speaking of luxuries, let’s start with the Great Room. This 21’ x 23’ room has a 42” Gas Fireplace that helps the home retain its warm and welcoming ambiance even in the most brutal winter. The high-quality hard wood flooring is tastefully matched with the 13’ Coffered beamed ceilings with crown moldings. However, what really catches the attention in this room is the 11′ x 9’ Built-in Entertainment Center that can transform the space from a solitary recluse to the grandest home entertaining venue ever.
The Other Rooms
All the other rooms have the amenities that you dream of. The kitchen is equipped with Thermador Professional Series Appliances, and has a hidden walk-in pantry. All the bedrooms have walk-in closets. The master bathroom has a freestanding tub as well as a large walk-in shower. The study is built away from the living room, providing you a place where you can peacefully read, work, or enjoy the solitude. Other rooms include an oversized laundry room and a mud room with a custom cabinet.
Not to mention, there is a 600 sq ft rear lanai where you can enjoy the natural beauty River Story offers, its large cascading oak trees dripping with moss, views of the St. Johns River while entertaining in an impressive Summer Kitchen with grill.

It has many energy saving features such as Gas “Rannai” Tankless Water Heaters, Low-E Glass in all windows and doors, R-19 Fiberglass Bath Insulation, and 16 Seer Variable Seered “Carrier” Air Handlers.
